The mother of 19-year-old terrorist Omar al-Abed said that she is proud of her son: “I did not send him…I am proud of my son, may Allah protect him and free him and take care of him.”
“They entered the house, turned the house upside down, started to curse me, hit my husband, hit my children, turned the whole house upside down..They said to me take out your weapon, I said we have no weapons they said to me, you sent your son to carry out an attack,’ and I said that I didn’t send him.”
Mohammad al-Abed, the terrorist’s father explained his son’s motivation: “When my son saw what was going on in al-Aqsa, That the Israelis kill people and beat people and injure people, and that there are no worshipers in the holy place without the mosque there is no honor for the Muslims.”
“That was my son’s motivation. That is what drove my son to do this thing, otherwise it’s unlikely that my son would have carried out an attack at all.” Al-Abed added.
