The mother of a suicide terrorist was interviewed by the official Palestinian Authority television station. She explains that her son told her that he wanted to become a Martyr, and that she had to pray for him while on a pilgrimage to Mecca or else it would be her sin. The mother says that she prayed for him and praised Allah, noting that Martyrdom is a good way to die. Another interview with the same mother was put on the Jamila magazine website (Qatar), in which she said that her sons Martyrdom was the most beautiful Mothers Day present. PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 5, 2002; www.jamila-qatar.com, April 2005.
Um Al-Ajrami, mother of suicide terrorist:
Before I went on my pilgrimage [to Mecca], [my son] Naji put his hand on my head, and said: Mother, pray for me to become a Shahid (Martyr), or it will be your sin and I wont forgive you until Judgment Day. During [the ceremonies] in Mecca and Medina, since it was entrusted to me, I prayed for him, saying: Praise Allah, my children asked for Shahada (Martyrdom). Its better than other ways to die, and anyway we will die.

Another interview with the same mother, Um Al-Ajrami:
[My son} Naji told me he wantedto carry out a Martyrdom-seeking operation, but he didnt mention exactly when he would blow himself up. His Martyrdom was the most beautiful present for Mothers Day. www.jamila-qatar.com, April 2005.


The above clip was translated and documented by Palestinian Media Watch: http://www.palwatch.org/pages/aboutus.aspx Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control. PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide. PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
