She Had Problems

I first read about this over on Imshin’s. Now I see it on IMRA.

Yediot Ahronot reports this morning that 22-year-old Reem Al-Reyashi, the mother of two who blew herself up at the Erez Crossing from the Gaza Strip to Israel, murdering four Israelis and injuring ten on 14 January, was pressured by her husband to carry out the suicide attack after he caught her with her lover who is also a member of Hamas.

In traditional society she faced execution by male family members for defaming the honor of her family.

Israel Radio Arab Affairs Correspondent Avi Yissakharov noted this morning that every female Palestinian suicide bomber has had a background of personal problems.
