If this is a way of rewarding the family of this terrorist, then it needs to be taken away immediately! However, if this is just a payment for loss of spouse, similar to Social Security death benefits in our country, and the woman had no knowledge of the terrorism ahead of time, then she should receive the money.
Monetary rewards for terrorism should not be encouraged. This is because it will encourage terrorism instead. We should shun terrorism and stop the belief of martyrdom. The belief says that if Muslims kill they have faith for Allah. This i very wrong. Therefore, i do not encourage this particular act and compensation.
Funding to the Palestinian Authority supports and fuels terrorism with generous salaries paid to murderers, the sending of money to families monthly, and buying families new homes, it needs to be stopped. In October, US Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dan Coats (R-IN) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced the Taylor Force Act — named after the American military veteran who was stabbed to death in Tel Aviv in March by a Palestinian terrorist — which would cut off funding to the PA if it continues its policy of dispensing monetary rewards for terrorism.
No, monetary rewards for terrorism should not be encouraged. Rewards such as the one given by the Palestinian Authority to the widow of a terrorist who committed the deadly Jerusalem truck-ramming attack only serve to encourage would-be terrorists to attack innocent people. They would do this because they would feel that their families would be taken care of.
