with cries of joy"

The Palestinian Authority Minister of Women's Affairs, Haifa Al-Agha, who is herself a woman, recently praised Palestinian women pointing out their "uniqueness" compared to all the other women of the world because they rejoice upon the news of the death of their sons:
 
"[PA] Minister of Women's Affairs Haifa Al-Agha... noted the Palestinian woman's uniqueness, which differentiates her from the women of the world, as [only] she receives the news of her son's Martyrdom with cries of joy."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 7, 2015]
 
This official PA promotion of Martyrdom (Shahada - Death for Allah) as an ideal and the praise of mothers who do not show sorrow but make "cries of joy" when their sons die, was voiced by the PA minister during the current wave of terror attacks. Many young Palestinians have been killed as they stabbed or attempted to stab Israelis. By praising mothers for their "cries of joy," Minister Al-Agha is sending a message to PA society to attack Israelis without fear of death because Martyrdom for Allah is said to be the highest value and highest achievable status.
 
The minister also added that Palestinian women are noteworthy not only because they celebrate death but because they fight as well:

"The Palestinian girls and women have proven their ability to contribute to their homeland, and that they have a significant presence in the field and battle arenas."
 
During the current wave of Palestinian attacks, Palestinian Media Watch has shown examples of parents who expressed joy over their son's Martyrdom and rejoiced that their "Martyr" son was going to "Paradise" to marry the 72 virgins, according to Islamic belief.











 
PMW has exposed that during  the current terror campaign, official PA and Fatah leaders and institutions idolize terrorists who have killed and wounded Israelis, and honor as "Martyrs" the ones who die while doing so. Moreover, Martyrdom is being promoted as an ideal to strive for. The official PA daily printed an op-ed that described Palestinians as worshipping the blood of a "Martyr," official PA TV broadcast a song stating that "nothing is sweeter than Martyrdom," and Abbas' Fatah has praised terrorist "Martyrs" and described the sky "fragrant with the scent of the Martyrs." 

The following is a longer excerpt of the report on the PA Minister of Women's Affairs' praise for Palestinian mothers for not showing sorrow over their dead children:
 
"Minister of Women's Affairs Haifa Al-Agha, stated that the ministry is working toward forcing Israel to implement international [UN Security Council] resolution 1325, which guarantees protection of women and children during conflicts...
She noted the Palestinian woman's uniqueness, which differentiates her from the women of the world, as [only] she receives the news of her son's Martyrdom with cries of joy.
She added that the Palestinian girls and women have proven their ability to contribute to their homeland, and that they have a significant presence in the field and battle arenas."
