Cult of death from generation to generation

Here is a clip of an interview with the children of a young Palestinian woman, Rim al-Riyashi, who blew herself up on January 27th murdering four and wounding ten Israelis in the process. She pretended to have an injured leg and needed assistance. Relying on the sympathy of Israeli soldiers, she was taken into a building at an Army checkpoint for medical assistance when she detonated the bomb in the midst of those who tried to help her.

The interview with her children aired on March 8th on Al-Aqsa TV, broadcast in the Palestinian territories:
Interviewer: "What would you like to recite for us? Have you heard the poem 'Mama Rim'? Go on then, recite it for us."

Dhoha: "Rim, you are a fire bomb."

Interviewer: "Go on, recite it."

Dhoha: "'Your children and submachine gun are your motto.'"

Interviewer: "Muhammad, go ahead and recite..."

Muhammad: "I'm in kindergarten."

Dhoha: "That's it, I'm done."

Interviewer: "OK, do you want to go to Mama?"

Dhoha: "Yes."
The complete transcript of the interview can be found here.
