Terrorists' mothers demand sons' bodies
Last Tuesday, I reported that Jerusalem police did not intend to return
the Har Nof terrorists' bodies. Now, the proud mothers are demanding that the bodies be turned over to them
“Let them destroy the houses, but we want the
bodies back. We will not calm down until we bury them,” said Fatma Abu
Jamal, the mother of Uday.
“The deaths of the cousins hurts us, but I am
proud of my son,” Zakia Abu Jamal, Ghassan’s mother, told Ynet. “I
didn’t get the feeling that my son was about to die as a martyr. He
acted completely normal, but, unfortunately, was is happening at al-Aqsa
[mosque] is the cause of a lot of tension and anger,” she added,
referring to recent violence at the Temple Mount and widespread
Palestinian assertions — denied by Israel — that Israel is planning to
change the status quo at the site, the holiest in Judaism and the third
holiest in Islam.
Fatma Abu Jamal said she was anxious to
receive the body of her son. “We want to have the bodies so we can
decide where to bury them, and not the Israeli government. They killed
them, what more do they want from us?” she said.
