Take a look at this children’s website. The fact that it’s all in Arabic doesn’t matter. You can tell from the colorful illustrations that this is a site meant for younger children. In fact it’s the website for an Islamic Kids magazine published in London.
MEMRI has translated some of what the mag has been publishing:
The 60th issue of Al-Fateh features a story about Sa’id Hassan Hutari from Qalqilya, who carried out the June 2001 suicide bombing at a disco near the Dolphinarium in Tel Aviv, killing 21 people, mostly teens. The magazine presents Hutari’s last message, in which he says: “I shall turn my body into pieces and bombs that will pursue the sons of Zion, blow them up, and burn the remains [of their bodies].” He then addresses his parents, telling them not to weep over his death, saying, “There is nothing greater than to give one’s soul for the sake of Allah on Palestinian soil. Mother, utter cries of joy; Father and brothers, hand out sweets. Your son is awaiting his betrothal to the Virgins of Paradise.” 
An illustrated story in Issue No. 69, “A Mission of Peace,” tells of a boy named Basel who sets out to carry out a martyrdom operation against the “Zionist soldiers.”  Issue No. 71 presents the story of Nasim Al-Ja’bari, who carried out a bombing in Beersheba. In the story, his mother says: “Before he left, he gave me 800 shekels. I felt deep sorrow, and cried six times that day without knowing why. When I heard the news that he had martyred himself, I took the money and bought dates, sweets, and coffee for the guests who would be coming to congratulate me.” 
These people are really sick. I guess we knew that by now. But it’s always surprising just how sick they are.
