The wife of a Hamas member of parliament hailed the role of Palestinian mothers in preparing their children to kill themselves in acts of terrorism against Israel. Encouraging her children to “wage Jihad for the sake of allah” is “the most glorious thing a woman can do,” she said.
In an interview on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV channel, Umm Osama, wife of Hamas MP Khalil Al-Hayya, said that she, her husband and her children all prayed that Allah would grant them martyrdom.
“Women in Palestine play a great role in raising their children and in encouraging them to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah,” she told the Gaza TV channel, in comments broadcast last month and recorded, reposted and transcribed Monday by the MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) watchdog. “This is absolutely the most glorious thing a woman can do. Women play their role and are not inferior to men. When a man goes to wage Jihad, his wife does not say ‘Don’t go’ or try to stop him. She encourages and supports him. She is the one who prepares his equipment, bids him farewell, and welcomes [his Jihad].”
The mother “instills in her children the love of Jihad and martyrdom for the sake of Allah,” she went on. “If every mother were to prevent her son from waging Jihad for the sake of Allah, who would wage Jihad? Who would support Palestine? Palestine is dear to us, and its price is paid with our body remains and our lifeblood. Is not Allah’s reward precious? Allah’s reward is Paradise. Paradise requires from us our blood, our body remains, and our efforts for its sake.”

As a parent, my mind cannot grasp teaching a child how to murder anyone. Children who rely on their mother for their love and safe keeping are being taught to take lives. The evil that exists in this world is heart wrenching. But Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ sees all. And everyone will have to give an account to our Lord.
The Bible tells us exactly what Jesus thinks of children.
Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Living in the end times as we are, I would imagine that this situation will only get worse. But Jesus tells you what he thinks of those who commits atrocities such as these.
Matthew 18:6 But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
The power in God’s Word is humbling. For Jesus to tell us you’d be better off to hang a millstone around our neck, and drowning-then to cause a child to sin, Our Savior’s Words are Great! Yet, many such as Umm Osama, wife of Hamas MP Khalil Al-Hayya, choose to believe the lies of satan, rather than the eternal World of Christ.
And even the disciples asked, “Who is the greatest in heaven?”
Matthew 18:1-3 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Let us pray for these innocent children who are forced to sin all over the World. Jesus sees all, and comes soon. Let us also pray to become like children to enter the kingdom of heaven!
Matthew 18:10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
