The "Life Is Sweet" Show: With the Family of Said Al-Khotari, the Suicide Bomber Who Blew Himself Up Outside the Dolphinarium in Tel Aviv, and Other Guests. (Aired from Jordan) Father #1: I have a son and I am already preparing him for martyrdom, either mine or his. I tell him that Allah made a vast Paradise, and that in it are things that the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, things that a man could not even imagine. He asks me: 'If I carry out an operation and blow myself up, will Allah give me a car, a rifle to shoot with, toys?' I answer him, 'You will get everything you ask for.' Host: This really happened between you and your son? Father #1: This really happened. Interviewer: Hold the microphone together and we will ask what the right answer is to give a child who asks, 'Where is my father, or where is my mother after one or both of them has carried out a martyrdom operation?' Father #2- The father of Said Al-Khotari: The answer, in brief, is that when Said died a martyr's death, we said, he is a martyr, 'Do not consider those who died for the sake of Allah dead, but alive and sustained by their God,' and we calmed the children. When they came from the television channel, the Abu Dhabi channel I think, or another channel, we told them: 'We are willing to sacrifice our four children.' Then the smallest (fifth) child said: 'Why can't I?!' Omar, a Palestinian child: I wish to be a martyr for the sake of Allah and to kill some of the Jews and infidels who worshiped other gods next to Allah and his Prophet and followed a religion that Allah did not permit and which is not mentioned in the Koran. I am 12 years old and I memorize the Koran. Interviewer: May Allah protect you and make you a Jihad fighter for the sake of Allah. ---------------------------------------------- An Interview with Dr. Colonel Nader Al-Tamimi, Mufti of the Palestinian Liberation Army Many people say: 'We do not talk about the Jews.' I hear some anchormen on the satellite channels say, 'We are not talking about the Jews, we are talking about Zionism.' Zionism is a small sapling in the extremely contemptible swamp of Judaismâ¦ I read in the Torah and in the Talmud, which interprets the Torah. (It is written there) that the human beings who are not Jews are beasts created from the sperm of a horse. And that Allah created them in human form so that the Jew would not be repulsed when they serve him. So, while the Jew kills him, drags him (like a rag), and treats him like a beast, and after all this I'm supposed to respect this religion? The final victory will come when the stone and the tree speak, saying, 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, a Jew is hiding behind me, come and kill him.' Except for the Gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews. The Gharqad is a sapling that grows in the Negev desert and the Jews began to plant it from the day they arrived in Palestine, around their fields. What is needed now is clinging to Allah, and for the masses of (suicide bombers) martyrs to get ready to enter Paradise. Paradise is open now. Anyone who wants to be admitted to Paradise instead of staying in its entrance, need only martyr himself. In Paradise, 70 black-eyed women will receive him. Not only one bride. This is why we call this 'the martyr's wedding,' because he is wed immediately. He passes from this earth, with all its misery, to the compassion of Allah, where he meets the martyrs who preceded him. Many sons of this nation. He meets them at the gates of Paradise. This is why, my brothers, that the gates of Paradise have opened before you. There is no point in remaining in this life of humiliation. Oh my nation, burst forth to Paradise, do not remain in the life of humiliation. The humiliated do not enter Paradise. Paradise is denied to the humiliated. ------------------------------- An Interview With Prof. 'Adel Sadeq, Head of the Psychiatry Faculty at 'Ein Shams University in Cairo on the Psychological Structure of Suicide Bombers Host: Let us begin at the beginning and ask, what is the psychological structure of the martyr? Who is the martyr? Who is this 17-year-old girl, planning to marry in 2 or 3 months, a beauty queen, who straps on an explosive belt and turns herself into a human bomb? What is the psychological structure of the martyr? Prof. 'Adel Sadeq: The psychological structure is that of a person who loves life. Praise Allah, he is seeking death! This is the thing that may appear peculiar to people who see the human soul as the most supreme thing. They are incapable of understanding this because their cultural structure has no concepts such as self-sacrifice and honor. These concepts do not exist in some cultures and thus they find themselves, in the face of these models (suicide bombers), in a state of denial, in a state of total denial they think that this is impossible, and therefore they begin to present idiotic and silly interpretations. Interviewer: You mean that the martyr is a person who loves life! Prof. 'Adel Sadeq: Of course. When he is martyred, he reaches the apex of happiness. He reaches the height of ecstasy, a level of (ecstasy) that you and I do not know. We feel happiness when we pray to Allah, or, for example, when we win a large sum of money or have a great success. Then you feel happiness, joy, as if you are flying. The height of ecstasy and happiness - and I am talking to you as a professional, a psychiatrist - comes the moment just like the producer told you: ten, nine, eight, seven, six, two, six, five, four, three, two, and then he presses the button to blow himself up. The most beautiful moment, for which he would have time speed up, is the moment he says "one - hop" - this man explodes, and he feels that he is flying, because he is completely convinced that he will not die, and this is the difference between us and the West. [The Westerner] thinks that he turns into a corpse that burns and flies through the air. Look what kind of culture they have... But, in fact, this is the act of transition to another and more beautiful world and he knows very well that within seconds he will see the light of his Creator. He will be at the closest possible point to Allah. On the strategic level, there must be a pan-Arab plan to reach our goal. The goal of all of us is to liberate Palestine from the Israeli aggressors. To use words that people do not like: we will throw Israel into the sea. This phrase, by the way, is the truth. Either they will throw us into the sea, or we will throw them into the sea. There is no compromise. Coexistence is all (nonsense)... Interviewer: No, either us or them. Either us or them.
