Al-Jazeera Special: Video of Palestinian Female Suicide BombersTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
View this Al-Jazeera special about Hanadi Jaradat, other female Palestinian suicide bombers, their families and the people who send them to die.
Amjad Al-'Ubeidi, commander of the Islamic Jihad in Jenin:There's more than an ocean of difference between Islamists and the rest of the world - these people are in a world of their own, taken there by clerics and political leaders that represent the very darkest side of human existance.
It is not that complicated. We produce primitive explosives, from which we make an explosives belt, a bag, or something. You can get most of it easily these days. There is nothing special about it. The belt is like this shirt - you wear it and there is a button here. You push the button, and that's it. All she had to do was to push a button. There's nothing to learn. She would wear it... Hanadi, especially, being an educated lawyer, who knows what to do, who speaks English, and gets along by herself - she did not need anyone to take her.
