Women as well as men are just cannon fodder. They don't care if they die. Now clerics, that is a different matter. They tell others to become suicide bombers, but they don't strap on a vest themselves. Because they know they are lying to the people.... I would like to tell you a wonderful story which took place in later times. There was a woman called Umm Ibrahim Al-Hashimiya, and Ibrahim was her only child. She prepared 10,000 dinars, in order to hold him a wedding the likes of which had never been seen. All the girls of the neighborhood were hoping to become his wife. One day, she attended a sermon about Jihad, the virtues of the mujahideen, and about the black-eyed virgins or Paradise. She immediately decided that her son would marry the black-eyed virgins. She went to the preacher and paid him the 10,000 dinars, on the condition that her son would marry the black-eyed virgins, about whom she heard things that encouraged her to act the way she did. Indeed, her son wage Jihad for the sake of Allah, and she awaited news of his martyrdom with bated breath. When the army returned, she hastened to ask: "Should I be congratulated because my gift was accepted, or should I be offered condolences because it was returned?" The army commander said to her: "The gift was accepted, and the bride has been brought to the groom." She praised Allah for accepting her sacrifice – her only son, who was about to be married. She believed that his wedding was his martyrdom for the sake of Allah....
So the stupid mother no longer has a son, or her 10,000 dinars, and her son is looking around hell trying to find his 72 virgins.Interviewer: Dr. Al-Astal, we have seen that some of the female martyrdom-seekers set out on their martyrdom operation without a veil? To what extent does our religion allow women, when they embark upon Jihad for the sake of Allah, to use means of camouflage, such as removing the veil?
Yunis Al-Astal: When Jihad becomes an individual duty, the husband's permission or consent is not required, because jihad becomes like prayer.
Only a lot louder, and there are more pieces of flesh flying through the air.Just like a woman does not have to ask for permission to pray, to fast during the Ramadhan, or to give charity, she does not need to ask for permission when Jihad becomes an individual duty.
She may have to ask permission to leave the house, if she is planning on coming back, but if she is going to kill herself trying to kill others, that is ok.In my opinion, in places invaded by the enemy, Jihad becomes an individual duty. With regard to your question about the veil, especially when it comes to martyrdom-seekers who had to go into the Zionist cities deep in Palestine – Jihad is a duty, and so is wearing a veil, but the duty of Jihad is ten times great than the duty to wear a veil.
So they can blow themselves up without wearing a veil. Is it ok if they get stinking drunk first, so they have the courage to push the button?... The message of the female martyrdom-seekers to the enemies is that they should go back to where they came from, or else our Jihad will continue until this land regains its holiness – from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River.
Many of the Jews lived in that area before the state of Israel was created, and many of the people in Gaza and the West Bank came from other Arab countries. How do those points jive with what you just said?
