Terrorist stabber’s father interviewed on PA TV reports on son’s death wish, praises Allah for his son’s Martyrdom

Official PA TV news broadcast report on funeral of “Martyr” Ahmad Kawazbeh
Terrorist stabber Ahmad Kawazbeh’s father: “Ahmad was an excellent high school student. Two days before he died as a Martyr (Shahid), he said something to us that we did not understand. We said to him ‘You need to study so you will bring us a high [grade point] average, and we want a report card (Shahada - the same as the word for martyrdom) which will make us proud.’ He said ‘Father, I will bring you Shahada (Martyrdom) that will make you very proud.’ It never occurred to us that he meant this type of Shahada (i.e., Martyrdom and not report card). Praise Allah, this is a better Shahada than any report card, Shahada for Allah.”
Immediately after the father’s words, the PA TV host says that the “Martyr” wanted to fulfill his dream of excelling in the matriculation exams, however “the muzzle of the occupier’s rifle was greater than his dream.” She ignores the words of the father who moments before specifically noted his son’s death-wish.

Ahmad, Muhannad, and Alaa Kawazbeh – 3 Palestinian terrorists, 18 and 19-years-old, and relatives, who attempted to carry out a stabbing attack near the Gush Etzion junction on Jan. 7, 2016. They aroused suspicions of Israeli soldiers at the junction who began a security check of them. The Kawazbeh relatives pulled out knives and were shot and killed by the soldiers.
