Hamas TV Lauds Suicide Bombers

Ad Feedback

GAZA STRIP - Hamas continues to educate its children in the fine art of suicide bombing.

Last week a story featured on a children's show broadcast on the terror group's satellite television network retold the story of Reem Saleh al-Riyashi, a Palestinian suicide bomber who killed herself and four Israelis at the Erez border crossing with the Gaza Strip in 2004.

The show's producers extended a special invitation to Riyashi's orphaned children to appear live on the show.

During the program, the show's host, a "bear" named Nasour, invites "shahid [martyr] al-Riyashi's children" to join him on stage to watch a video of their mother, replete with musical accompaniment.

In the video, the daughter, watching her mother assemble the explosive device she will use, asks, "Mama, what are you carrying in your arms instead of carrying me? Is it a toy or a gift for me?"

As her mother walks away without answering, the child sings, "Come back soon, Mama."

Next, the viewers see the child watching the TV report of the successful suicide attack.

"Instead of carrying me, you carried a bomb in your arms," the bomber's daughter says. "Only now I know what was more important than us," she says.

The video shows Riyashi standing near IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldiers at a checkpoint moments before she detonates her payload and the billowing smoke fills the screen.

The video pans in on her children's faces in the studio as they watch their mother kill herself.

In their latest bulletin, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) posted a video of the TV program with English cutlines. To view the video, click here.
