Video grab image shows Palestinian suicide bomber 22 year old Reem
talking on an undated prerecorded amateur video, released
on Janaury 14, 2004. A Palestinian mother of two who killed four
Israelis in a suicide bombing on Wednesday professed love for her
children before launching an attack that she said was meant to turn her
body into 'deadly shrapnel'. Smiling at times in a videotape that showed
her cradling a rifle, 22-year-old Reem Al-Reyashi said she had dreamed
since she was 13 of 'becoming a martyr' and dying for her people.

May her name be erased. She should rot in hell.
