Female terrorists in Gaza (video and poster)

From CNN:
With faces covered and guns loaded, Palestinian militants are training among the sand dunes of Gaza.
Shouts of "Allahu Akbar" -- God is great -- are followed by intense target practice. These militants are preparing to fight their sworn enemy, the state of Israel. But there is a difference -- they are women.
Training alongside men, they say they are ready to go into battle and are calling on more Palestinian women to join what they call the resistance against Israel.
CNN was given rare access to some of these women inside Gaza. The militant group insisted the location was kept secret, so we were blindfolded in the back of a car and driven to a house.
Five women are sitting in the back garden, all from the Salah ad-Din Brigades -- one of several militant groups in Gaza -- all veiled and armed. Only their eyes are uncovered.
Sitting beside a table of guns, rocket-propelled grenades and land mines, the scene is carefully choreographed for our camera and the message is clear.
One woman tells me: "I am trained and ready to be a suicide bomber against Israeli soldiers."

Which inspired me to make a new poster:
