Editor’s note: Below is the latest profile of Frontpage’s new series, “Voices of Palestine,” which will illuminate the core beliefs, in their own words, of leading figures in the Palestinian death cult. Click the following to view the profiles of Ahmad Bahr, Mahmoud al-Zahar, Ibrahim Mudayris, Yasser Ghalban and Haj Amin al-Husseini.

Despite getting her life back, death was foremost on her mind.

No sooner was Wafa al-Bis freed from jail last month – one of over 1,000 Palestinian terrorists and militants released by Israel as part of a prisoner swap for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit – than she vowed to seize every opportunity to take up the terrorist cause that had landed her in prison six years ago. Arrested in 2005 after her suicide belt failed to detonate at a border crossing, Bis remained committed to killing Jews. Asked if she would be a suicide bomber again, she replied without hesitation: “Of course. Why not? This is an honorable thing and I would be a suicide bomber three times over if I could.”

The dearth of an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement is the source of endless punditry and countless, fruitless presidential summits. Yet the underlying reason that Israel has been unable to come to terms with the Palestinians – the latter’s repeated failure to accept the legitimacy not only of a Jewish state but of Jewish life – is perfectly summed up in Bis’s grim story. As she herself says, her one purpose in life is to end it in the service of killing Jews. In that respect, Bis is tragically typical of a Palestinian culture that resembles nothing so much as a modern-day death cult, where dying while killing Jews is considered the holiest endeavor.

Not the least of the perversions of modern Palestinian society is how it poisons the minds of its youth. From an early age, children are taught that the murder of Jews is a glorious and praiseworthy achievement. The products of that hateful education do not recognize the basic humanity of Israelis and Jews, and seek to kill them, wherever they may be. Bis is a case in point. “I had wanted to be a martyr since I was a kid,” she has said. She got her chance at the age of 21, when she was arrested at an Israeli checkpoint after failing to explode her suicide belt. Her target was an Israeli hospital in Beer Sheva.

To seek murder in a place of healing bespeaks a unique kind of evil. But Bis’s target is particularly notable because she had actually been a patient at the hospital, where she received treatment, free of charge, for burns she suffered when a gas tank exploded in a cooking accident. Bis repaid the favor by returning to kill those who had attended to her. But for a malfunctioning detonator on her suicide belt, she would have achieved her aim. No matter that Israeli doctors had helped her. Bis’s moral code made no room for the legitimacy of any Jewish life.

    If you have enough stomach to read those profiles… maybe you can find a different path than me. I hope for all and each of them will sooner arriving at to their orgasmic achievement; with all the power to exploit in the middle of their nets with their entire family and neighbors crying for the Allah sake…Blow you all, disappear from the human scene go back to the darkness of ignorance and pathology to drown your selves inside your tangle of evil cruel obsessions.

  • Rifleman

    A transponder to guide a 2000lb JDAM in, implanted in each of the terrorists before they were released, would be fair and poetic.

  • Big Irish

    what an evil. ugly, vile group of people (I hate to use that word to describe them-as they are not) these are – but what do you expect from a group of animals who revere their loveable Mohamed (piss-be-upon-him)…damn shame that bomb didnt go off when she was standing there…not only are they evil, they are STUPID as well.

  • aspacia

    Oh, but she is just mentally unbalanced and not representative of ME Muslims at all.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      I did laugh, shame on me……….10+……………………..William

    • aspacia

      I said this sarcastically folks–Geez, some have no sense of humor regarding liberal and Muslim rhetorical games.

  • 2012

    “You have to know that Palestine will never be liberated through negotiations,”

    By this she means Israel.

  • LindaRivera

    Hate, cruelty and murder of non-Muslims is taught in the Koran, in schools, media and mosques. And an all-consuming, inhuman hate for Jews. It was to Jews that Almighty G-D gave His Holy Laws to His Hebrew servant, Moses. Laws that are utterly unacceptable to devout followers of Islam. Laws, as:

    YOU SHALL NOT MURDER

    Because it was to Jews that G-D gave His laws, those who hate G-D and hate G-D's Laws, seek to annihilate Jews.

    It is unforgivable to give a terror state torn out of the heart of Israel to merciless Muslims whose dark purpose in life is Jewish annihilation.

    Humanity's enemies absolutely depend upon the ignorance of the majority, and that is a shame.
    There are no "palestinians", unless, of course, you count the Jews among their numbers who, ALSO, lived in the Palestine prior to 1948, for CENTURIES. But, of course, they do not.
    There has never been a "state" of Palestine. There were no "palestinians" before being created by the media in the 60s.
    From Nuremberg on, there have been groups hunting down Nazis, yet no one hunts for the arabs who aided and abetted them before and during the war. But then, it's only Jews, right? Different cultures have been killing them and justifying their anti-Semitism throughout history. One must surely be amazed at the never-ending ways in which this or that group devises for singling out this one group for extinction and the efforts, throughout human history, to do so. Such is occurring now.
    I have my own little fantasy- Mohammed, turning slowly on a spit, in HELL.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      Fantasy? how could he not be in Hell and there forever surrounded by his
      evil and vile essence. Palestinians are his spiritual legacy and attendant
      demons………………………..William

  • Ghostwriter

    This woman sounds like she'd make a great wife for Flipside. They both have contempt for the lives of Jews. Also,she'd make a great friend for Herman Caintonette. They both want to see Jews dead,including women and children.

    • WilliamJamesWard

      He would have to fight Herman for her……………….William

  • jmz

    this woman should be raped and her throat cut! seriously these people should have no right to live and the fact that we have not exterminated the lot of them shows how foolish we are being. if th god of jews exist then he wants you to fight for your freedom and home,,,if he dosent then obviously he does not like you and there is no use is worshiping a god who hates you. quit expecting muslim subhuman garbage to gain a soul or brain. they are filthy animals who have no right to live anymore. if 2000 yrs of jew hatred from these people have proven peace does not work, then jews and israel are doomed. rise up..kill your enemies who want NOTHING more than to kill you and your children, save the world from muslim filth or die and be forgotten

    • Beth

      "this woman should be raped and her throat cut!"

      That's what the koran commands – which is evil – no matter what.

    • ziontruth

      "this woman should be raped and her throat cut!"

      I can settle for expelling her from the Land of Israel. Though she and her fellow Arab settlers all want me dead, I don't want them dead, I just want them out of my land.

  • Beth

    "That Bis would urge children to follow in her footsteps is not surprising. She herself was encouraged to become a suicide bomber by her parents"

    Mat 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

    Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; [The] God [of Peace] is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. [the same applies to nations]

    Which is why the koran needs to be banned. Period.

  • Chipper

    The Arabs and Jews have been enemies for thousands of years. They are the human incarnation of Satan!!! Jesus has won they will be defeated and judged but it will be horable and bloody battle!!!!!

    • BS77

      Learn basic English and grammar….also some attention might be paid to basic logic and rationality but that might be a bit much for you.

      • aspacia

        Another shining example of our k-12 system.

    • Beth

      With a statement like that (racism) – what do you suppose the Lord of Christianity means by the following?…

      Rom 2:9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

      Rom 2:10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, TO THE JEW FIRST, and also to the Gentile.

      Maybe you should get to know Jesus a little better – Who, btw – was a Jew.

      Your statement serves no purpose, other than to stir trouble (of which, I believe, were your intentions)

    Hassan Nasrallah: "The Jews love life… and we love death."

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Think on it, a Palestinian woman in a use and abuse culture, a numbered member
    of a herd that sees horrid self destruction as the highest possible achievement for
    her life. Is this not a total refutation of the Palestinian regime? Reasonable and
    humain society with high asperations view murderers as possibly the lowest
    form of human failure and this is the highest form for the Palestinian, yet leftists
    like the Clintons, Obamas et. al., do all they can to promote them, what does that
    tell us…………………………….William

    • Beth

      It's wild to be a witness …..isn't it William.That such leaders go above and beyond being ignorant about it – they support it.

      You ask "what does that tell us"

      This is what it tells me:

      If you support murder – you're a murderer. Pretty scary, isn't it? to think that such evil sits in some of the most powerful places.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        They are the children of the father of lies!………………………William

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Obama gave 900 million US dollars to Hamas and American Army soldiers
        to train them, why I asked myself was he not impeached for supporting without
        authoity and active terrorist entity?……..How many people disappeared or
        turned up dead in Arkansas while the Clintons ran the State? We have
        been in the belly of the beast for a long time and morals and ethics have
        plumited bringing on our present problems………………………William

  • Asher

    Brigette Gabriele's Book, Because they Hate also describes a people that are consumed with Hatred and violence for Christians and Jews, or anyone who does not worship the Koran. Many of the churches are showing a film of a mother and a daughter, the Mother had MS and was miracuously healed because of her faith in Jesus. The daughter wanted to committ suicide for Allah, but was pursuaded to accept Christianity and Jesus…The Two are now on the run because they converted from Islam to Christianity…. Islam is a religion of Isolation, Hatred, and breeds unhappiness, they will never know peace.

  • Ami

    Wait-are you serious? You take the quote of one person at a single moment in time. Of course-it sounds horrible and atrocious…but have you read it knowing all that she has been through? All the suffering she -or any of the other people have suffered in their days? How easy it is to criminalize a who race of people who have been dehumanized and devalued since the creation of this beloved Israel? Israel has been slowly-out of the public eye-wiping Palestine and everything Palestinian off the face of the map and out of history. The woman has clearly been traumatized throughout her life. Look at the current happenings right now in Gaza!! CHILDREN are being MURDERED and some of you have the NERVE to call the Palestinians animals? If that was your child-or mine….no rocket would be big enough to handle the rage I (or anyone of you) would feel!! Instead of crying out that Palestinians are vile-sick-blood thirsty savages—-try looking at it from the others perspective!! I do not mean suicide bombing is good-i am simply saying try to understand their rage and anger at the hurt they endure and the anger that instead of the world stepping in to stop it-it perpetuates until everyone has felt it, feared it, and LIVE IT!!

    • Ali

      If Palestinians laid down their arms there would be peace. If Israelis laid down their arms they would be exterminated.

  • Ami

    and what of this?? http://www.eutimes.net/2009/11/book-about-killing

    is this not something that people should take into consideration?!?
