All you wanted to know about motherhood in Palestine
Following upon the previous article about jihad, here's Andrew Bostom talking about "Martyr Mom". What's alarming isn't just that she ran in the election, but that she has become a heroine and a shining example of Muslim motherhood.
FrontPage magazine.com :: Meet Candidate �Martyr Mom� by Andrew G. Bostom:
Umm Nidal Farhat mothered three Hamas terrorist sons all of whom were killed while participating in so-called martyrdom operations aimed at slaughtering Israelis, indiscriminately, whether military personnel, or civilians. She relished the most notorious of these actions, the murderous rampage by her son Muhammad: "I prayed from the depths of my heart that Allah would cause the success of his operation. I asked Allah to give me 10 [Israelis] for Muhammad, and Allah granted my request and Muhammad made his dream come true, killing 10 Israeli settlers and soldiers. Our God honored him even more, in that there were many Israelis wounded."The author concludes his article thus:

And how moribund is our world that the mother of three murderous jihad terrorists—a triumphal “Martyr Mom”—can run for elective office in the Palestinian Legislative Council, and this harrowing spectacle is regarded with the same banality by these elites as if she were a “Soccer Mom”?
