A Terrorist’s Proud Mother

As Israel works to halt Palestinian payments to terrorists and their families, those of us who stand for the Jewish state are horrified by exactly how supportive said families are to their murderous relations. The Jerusalem Post shares a report by the hard-working folks at MEMRI who show how a terrorist’s mother calls her son, who stabbed three IDF soldiers, “the pride of Islam”:

The mother of Muhammad Said Muhammad Ali, a terrorist who wounded three IDF officers in a dramatic stabbing attempt before being shot and killed, is seen praising her 19-year-old son for his “heroic” act…

“He was a hell of a guy, she says. “A butcher. A lion. You could see in the video of the attack how practiced he was in wielding a knife, because he was a butcher… and knew how to slaughter.”

In what appears to be almost a song, she calls her son “courageous.”

“You could hear the soldiers of Jerusalem’s riot police (screaming) like madmen,” she sings. “You are the pride of Islam, as millions bear witness. Your knife sent those midgets running in all directions. Our homeland is precious and deserves that we sacrifice our lives for it.”
