Al-Hamadi: Haven’t we heard about the blessed mothers in Palestine who go to their sons and prepare them for martyrdom for the sake of Allah? The son sets out and on his way, he calls his mother from his cellphone, and tells her: “I’ve arrived at the place, I am going in.” Then he says, “I’m ready,” and the mother guides him and encourages him until she hears the bombs go off over the cellphone. Then she bows, thanking Allah for granting her son martyrdom for His sake. Then she utters cries of joy and refuses to accept condolences. She does not open a grieving tent, but rather a congratulation tent, because Allah granted her son martyrdom. Such Hansaa-like women have appeared again in our times. Some of these women commit martyrdom themselves. They may be married women or students, but even so, they are not tempted by this life, and they carry out martyrdom operations for the sake of Allah.

Here’s a special report at MEMRI on another UAE “think tank” located in Abu Dhabi, that until recently was funded directly by the Arab League and the UAE government, and played host to many US and European politicians: The Think Tank of the Arab League: The Zayed International Centre for Coordination and Follow-Up.
Here’s an LGF search page for the Zayed Centre; we first noticed this center of xenophobia, hatred, and conspiracy theories (now closed due to international exposure) back in 2002.

The incredibly strange Zayed Centre is the inspiration for our 404 error page.
