Fatah Praises Proud Mother of Three Palestinian Terrorists


Reprinted from Palestinian Media Watch.

Abbas Zaki, Member of Fatah Central Committee, recently spoke about the death of Hamas MP Um Nidal (Mariam Farahat), referring to her “journey of giving, overflowing with struggle and sacrifice.” PA MP Mustafa Al-Barghouti expressed similar awe for Um Nidal “giving her three heroic sons… for Palestine and for the freedom of the Palestinian people.”

Following that attack, in which Muhammad killed 5 Israeli students, Um Nidal said:

“I gave my son to Jihad for Allah. It’s our religious obligation… As much as my living children honor me, it will not be like the honor the Martyr showed me… The greatest honor [my son] showed me was his Martyrdom.”

Um Nidal was the mother of two other “Martyrs,” as well, all members of Hamas’ military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades. One of the sons, Nidal, invented the Qassam rocket and was killed when explosives he was preparing detonated. The third son, Rawwad, was killed together with three other Hamas terrorists by Israel.

Abbas Zaki in his statement stressed that Um Nidal “sacrificed her three heroic sons Nidal, Muhammad and Rawwad, on the altar of freedom for Palestine”

The following is the transcript of Um Nidal’s statement before and after her son’s attack in 2002:

Um Nidal with her son, Muhammad, who is armed and ready to carry out a terror attack: “By Allah, today is the best day of my life. I feel that our Lord is pleased with me, because I am offering something [my son] for Him. I wish to sacrifice more [sons] for Allah’s forgiveness, and for the flag [of Islam], ‘There is no god but Allah,’ to fly over Palestine…. It’s true that there’s nothing more precious than children, but for the sake of Allah – what is precious becomes cheap.”

Um Nidal after her son’s death: “I gave my son to Jihad for Allah. It’s our religious obligation. If I wanted to have compassion for him, or to make him change his mind, it would be wrong, a mistake. I don’t want to be guided by my feelings, a mother’s feelings. I put them aside for a while for something greater, although a mother’s feelings are involved. Why? Because I love my son, and I wanted to choose the best for him, and the best is not life in this world. For us there is an Afterlife, the eternal bliss. So if I love my son, I’ll choose eternal bliss for him. As much as my living children honor me, it will not be like the honor the Martyr showed me. He will be the intercessor on the Day of Resurrection. What more can I ask for? Allah willing, the Lord will promise us Paradise, that’s the best I can hope for. The greatest honor [my son] showed me was his Martyrdom.”

[Hamas website, 2002]

Um Nidal has also expressed how she viewed the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers as “the only solution”:

“Disregarding the fact that I’m a member of Parliament as a Palestinian citizen, by Allah, I don’t believe in any solution other than one: kidnapping Zionist soldiers.”

PMW documents that the PA promotes Martyrdom death for Allah as an ideal and how parents express joy over their children’s death as Martyrs.

The following are excerpts of the statements by Palestinian leaders praising Um Nidal, in the PA daily:

Headline: “Zaki announces the death of fighter Mariam Farahat”

“Abbas Zaki, Member of Fatah Central Committee, and Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China, announced the death of fighter and member of the Palestinian Parliament, Mariam Farahat Um Nidal, whose soul returned to the creator after a journey of giving, overflowing with struggle and sacrifice, during which she sacrificed her three heroic sons Nidal, Muhammad and Rawwad, on the altar of freedom for Palestine. Zaki said that the death of fighter Farahat is ‘a loss for our people, for we have lost one of the acclaimed Palestinian women and one of the resolute fighters of our people.’”

Headline: “Al-Barghouti announces the death of fighter Mariam Farahat”

“Mustafa Al-Barghouti, member of the Palestinian Parliament and Secretary-General of the National Initiative Movement, announced the death of fighter and member of the Palestinian Parliament, Mariam Farahat Um Nidal, who died after a life filled with struggle and sacrifice, during which she gave her three heroic sons Nidal, Muhammad and Rawwad as Martyrs (Shahids) for Palestine and for the freedom of the Palestinian people.”

    Fatah/PA/PLO are Arafat's "babies", you know, the godfather of suicide terror, a "peace" prizer too. But never mind all that, his protege, his henchman, Abbas aka Abu Mazen, is following in his bloody footsteps, albeit in a suit, sans the schmatta on his head!

    Regardless, here are some additional truths, re the folks world leaders obsess over, the ones who "deserve" their own state, never mind that it would be carved out of Israel's historic, biblical heartland – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/01/pa-statehood-

    In spite of the above (and so much more), the world is deaf, even when another ! Arab leader spills the beans – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/27/another-arab-

    So, what part of scamming the world is not resonating? And is destroying Israel THAT intrinsic to world "peace"??

    Good for this fine woman. I hope Palestine produces 1,000 more like her sons who are brave enough to stand up to the jewish infestation in the Middle East and who can take THEIR land back (Israel is fake and illegal).

    • deniseandros

      DeShawn,
      Perhaps all of these "Palestinians" should go back to their real home, in Jordan. The G-d of Jacob gave that land to Israel. Why don't you go and study the bible, the real bible, not the unholy koran. Then try studying some history before you shoot off that big mouth of yours. As for her, her womb is cursed. As for Arafat's babies? Not possible, he was a homo.

    • Mary Sue

      This woman advocates MURDER, and you think she's "fine"? You are one sick puppy, deSpawn.

      Jewish INFESTATION? Racist.

    • Adam

      usually when people lose a war they either assimilate or leave. Palestinians lost the war. The Jewish 'infestation' is in charge and there is nothing left for Palestinians except to live in your well deserved humiliation and dishonor. It is time to move over and stop collecting money as refugees three generations after you lost the war in disgrace, there are real refugees from Syria.

    • Pontotoc Bill

      Another who had drunk deeply of the kool-aid.

      Nothing you wrote has any connection with reality, so go back and get a REAL education to replace the liberal one you received.

    • Lan Astaslem

      you should crawl back into the backside of the snake that spawned you. ISRAEL is here to stay – get used to it you deranged inbred.

    Hey, what a wonderful mother. "Dear child, when you are able, please strap on a belt of dynamite, and go blow yourself up, and take a lot of innocent people with you. " Gee, thanks ma! It's a shame someone coulnd't have given this Mother From Hell the opportunity to blow herself up.

    • stern

      In a just world, people like her would be prosecuted for child abuse.

  • Adam

    The only way women get respect and can rise in power is by drinking the Islamist coolaide. Where were the feminists when she was proudly describing the death of her sons and rewarded with a seat in the Palestinian parliament.

    • Michael Schneider

      A wonderful woman to be sure!
      She comes from an equally wonderful culture which taught the poor, simpleton what to do with her children. Unfortunately for them (and for everyone else) she didn't test the system on herself first in order to make sure it works.

  • stern

    Just musing about the pinkwashing article on today's Front Page and wondering how long before the academic world decides that the average Jewish mother is only really nurturing her children and feeding them and bringing them up to be mensches as a way to disguise the truth: that we force creatures like this one to such "desperation" that they willingly send their own kids to kill us.

  • snuffydegauss

    welcome to the deranged demented world of islam – a world where blood-thirsty thugs wanting to kill jews are called peace activists, a world when wearing a black sack is truly liberating, a world where you bring up children to be suicide bombers makes you the best parent ever, a world where the perfect man instructs followers to kill those who disagree with his so-called message of peace, a world where no matter how much you give the adherents money, housing, health care and education they hate you, a world where millions escape from but want to turn their new home into what they fled from….oh i feel a bit better.

  • Questions

    The case for Islam as a pathology nowhere is stated more forcefully than here, albeit unintentionally. The mother's mind imprisoned by sickness, she inflicted that sickness on her sons and called it "education." At least, they are gone to the world.

    Welcome to Islam.

  • Ken

    The U.S and British media portrays Mustafa Al-Barghouti as a moderate.
    Here you see the Pro Islamic terrorist he really is.

  • PhillipGaley

    What if Islam is not a religion composed of doctrines and beliefs which may be inquired into? What if Islam is more pert to a criminal ideology, compose of supposedly inflexible doctrines which are inculcated by force, and interpreted ad hoc by supposed lawyers?

    If so, could the woman then be be said to be following religious obligation?

  • Ghostwriter

    That woman isn't a mother. She's a monster. A real mother would mourn the loss of her sons. She didn't. What a heartless beast she is.
