Hamas Child Terror
Site Updated With Story of ´Girl´s Heroism´
March 17, 2006
The Hamas-run web site promoting suicide terrorism to children has been
updated with a new illustrated story glorifying a young girl’s suicide
attack against Zionists.
The story, entitled “A Palestinian Girl's Heroism,”
describes how the young girl calmly progresses, step by step, though the
planning and execution of the terror attack, in which she dies. In death she is
said to be "smiling, lying on the grass, because she died as a Shahida,
martyr for Allah, for Palestine."
“The illustration with the story on the web shows a young smiling girl with four
candles,” a report by
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW)
points out. “The image of a living, smiling child in a story about the death of
a child appears to echo a familiar message in PA children's education, that
those who die as Shahids (Martyrs for Allah) are not really dead.”
After PMW originally published a report on the Al-Fateh web site encouraging
children to seek martyrdom, and after the
Arutz-7 article on the report
was featured on the
Drudge Report, the Hamas
site’s Russian server (CORBINA TELECOM Network Operations) immediately closed
down the website on March 9, 2006. The site reopened a couple of days later,
however, and is now being hosted by a Malaysian web hoster (Eastgate;Telekom

The following is a translation of the new short story on the
Al-Fateh web site:
A Palestinian Girl's Heroism
"Suad, the bright Palestinian girl, remembered what the Zionist criminals did
when they killed her father and mother.
"One day while Suad was walking, she heard a voice from the trees. She turned
and saw three men planting land-mines on the road leading to the Zionist camp.
"Suad kept on walking. After a while, she saw a car with some Zionists and an
idea popped into her mind. She walked to the officer who was in the car, and
told him: ‘I'll lead you to Palestinian Fida'yon (literally: self
sacrificing fighters) in return for food, because I am hungry.’
"The officer was afraid of the Fida'yon's reputation, and didn't believe
what Suad told him.
"He then said to his soldiers: "Take her to the camp so we will clarify her
story." In the camp, the soldiers brought food to Suad, so she would lead them
to the Fida'yon. She told them: ‘Before I taste any food, I must lead you
to the Fida'yon.’
"The officer was very happy and told his soldiers: ‘Let's go fast.’
"On the way, Suad got ready to carry out her plan. She decided to cause the car
to ride over the land-mines, so that all of the soldiers would die.
"Suad sat next to the driver, to direct him, and she led him to the land-mines.
Then the [car] blew-up and all of the soldiers were killed. As for Suad, well
she became a Shahida (Martyr for Allah) on the grass, while smiling,
because she died as a Shahida for Palestine".
