IsWas My Boy!’
‘Look! My boy did this! Isn’t it great?!
Awww, how sweet, mama is proud of her little boy:
The mother of Muhammad Faisal Saksak, the 21-year-old suicide bomber who carried out Monday’s attack in Eilat, said she was aware of her son’s plan to blow himself up and that she had wished him “good luck.”
Dozens of Palestinians, chanting slogans against Israel and the US, converged on the family’s home to “congratulate” them on the success of the attack.
Ruwaidah, 43, said she last saw her son on Friday morning, when he walked out of his home in the Slateen neighborhood near Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.
“As he walked out of the house, he asked me to wish him good luck,” she said. “I wished him good luck and I knew of his decision to become a martyr. Although I was aware of his intention, I did not know exactly when he was planning to carry out a martyrdom attack.”
“I pray to Allah that Muhammad will be accepted as a shaheed [martyr],” she said shortly after hearing about the Eilat bombing. “I hope that his martyrdom will deliver a message to the Fatah and Hamas fighters to stop the fighting and direct their weapons against the one and only enemy – Israel.”
Ruwaidah said she was prepared to “sacrifice” all her sons “for the sake of the Aksa Mosque and Palestine.”
“When I heard that he was martyred, I felt very proud of him”
I’m sure you are.
Well, I’m sure that he will be accepted as something, if that makes this sweet mother feel better.
More on the suicide attack itself:
Although Muhammad’s uncles claimed he crossed the border into Israel from Jordan, PA security sources told The Jerusalem Post that he came from Egypt. They added that Muhammad’s dispatchers were deliberately involving Jordan to avoid alienating the Egyptians and to create tensions between the Jordanians and Israel.
A spokesman for Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip claimed that preparations for the attack lasted seven months and that Muhammad had received training in Aqaba.
