Per Ynet, a would-be Palestinian suicide bomber freed by Israel in the prisoner swap for Gilad Shalit told cheering schoolchildren in Gaza the day after her release on Wednesday she hoped they would follow her example.
“I hope you will walk the same path we took and God willing, we will see some of you as martyrs,” Wafa al-Biss told dozens of children who came to her home in the northern Gaza Strip.
Biss was travelling to Beersheba’s Soroka hospital for medical treatment in 2005 when IDF soldiers at the Erez border crossing noticed she was walking strangely. They found 10 kgs (22 lbs) of explosives had been sewn into her underwear.
A member of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an offshoot of President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, Biss was sentenced to a 12-year term for planning to blow herself up.
After she spoke, the children cheered and waved Palestinian flags and chanted: “We will give souls and blood to redeem the prisoners. We will give souls and blood for you, Palestine.”
Perhaps the only thing more certain than the fact that Palestinian terrorists released in the deal to free Gilad Shalit will continue on the path of Jihad, and implore others to follow in their example, is the fact that you will never read about such immutable malice towards innocent Israelis on the pages of the Guardian.
