  • Elder of Ziyon
The son of the 73-year old woman terrorist denied that she tried to purposefully ram her car into a group of soldiers:

Ayoub Sha’arawi was meeting with guests Saturday at a local mosque in Hebron who had gathered to pay their final respects to his mother, Tharwat al-Sha’arawi, who was killed during an suspected attempted car ramming attack outside the West Bank city a day earlier.

“Does the Israeli public think it’s logical that a 73-year-old woman that has a hard time climbing the steps would go and carry out a car-ramming or stabbing attack?” asked 53-year-old Sha’arawi,

Sha’arawi spoke to The Times of Israel while organizing lunch for everyone, which was supposed to be delivered to the mosque. “We prayed together, everyone, at the mosque and after prayers she was supposed to go to my uncle’s house. But on the way, she decided she wanted to stop and get gas. Her car was a small gray Hyundai. She left, from this alley where we’re standing, and turned right on the main road. I ask you again. The gas station is 100 meters away from us. She drove 20-30 kilometers an hour and you see this clearly in the video filmed by the soldiers. Is that how you carry out a car-ramming attack?”

When asked about his mother’s swerve to the right, which prompted the soldiers to open fire, Sha’awari said the gas station is on the right side, which is why she swerved. “But if she wanted to run over soldiers, she would have sped up in their direction, and toward those standing on the sidewalk, and wouldn’t have continued to drive into the gas station.”
Her son also claimed that the knife that was found in her bag was planted.

An Arabic website, however, leaves no doubt about Tharwat's intentions.

The article says that two weeks before her death, Tharwat al-Sha'rawi wrote a will and spoke with her daughter Ihlam, saying "I think I am going to die soon… If I die, oh, Allah, let me die as a shaheeda and not in my bed."

The Meir Amit Center adds that her daughter is married to a jailed Hamas member - and Hamas issued a "martyr" poster for her!

Hamas doesn't do this for people who are not fighters.

So, yes, old Palestinian women are as susceptible to the same mass brainwashing that makes teens want to risk their lives for the chance to kill a Jew.
