Hamas Minister of Women’s Affairs: “We Have a Long List of Female Martyrdom-Seekers”¦ [Women] Serve as Shields for These [Male] Fighters”
Hamas Minister of Women’s Affairs Jamila Al-Shanti: “Palestinian society is, by nature, a society of resistance. Resistance does not mean only the bearing of arms. The people who aid those who bear arms are sometimes even stronger than them. The [Palestinian] woman is the wife of a resistance fighter, or the mother of resistance fighters, or else she herself is on the frontline, or she opens her home to resistance fighters. She is capable of doing everything. During the incursions [into Gaza], the women fought in every way possible. They confronted the tanks, they confronted the Zionist enemy.
“All means of resistance are available to women. In addition, we have a long list of female martyrdom-seekers. Need I say more? If you do the math, the number of male martyrdom-seekers is twice the number of female martyrdom-seekers. So the number of female martyrdom seekers is hardly insignificant. […]
Reporter: “The Palestinian woman has not been absent from the fronts of Jihad, from the battle for regaining the homeland. This is the Palestinian fighter Afaf Ubeid, who has brought great courage to the struggle. She has her eyes set on a single target — the liberation of her homeland from the fifth of the occupation. The fighter Afaf, who has not been blessed by Allah with sons, whom she could sacrifice for the homeland, has decided to take their place.”
Afaf Ubeid: “I waged Jihad myself because there was no one to do so on my behalf. Every Palestinian woman wants to wage Jihad.” […]
Reporter: “The phenomenon of female Palestinian martyrdom-seekers characterized the jihad activity of women in the Al-Aqsa Intifada. They believed in the justice of the cause for which they were fighting, and they have written a new chapter in the book of the conflict.
“Among them were: Wafa Idris, Dareen Abu Aisha, Hanadi Jaradat, Ayat Al-Akjras, Andaleeb Taqatqa, Hiba Sa’id Daraghmeh, Nora Shalhoub, Ilham Al-Dasouqi, Reem Al-Riyashi, who was the first female martyrdom-seeker from the ‘Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and finally, Hajja Fatima Al-Najjar, who joined the female martyrdom-seekers.
“Even though women were conspicuous in their absence in the early days of martyrdom operations, the mothers of martyrdom-seekers demonstrated unparalleled stances. The mother of the martyrdom –seeker would know her son’s whereabouts, and he would call her to get her approval. She would know that he was going to commit martyrdom, and she would wish him success. He would talk to her, perhaps saying: ‘Mother, the time has come for me to meet Allah,’ and she would say to him: ‘Away you go to Paradise, my son.'” [“¦.]
