Reports JNW:

Rayashi further broke the Western mold of what kind of person becomes a “suicide” bomber in that she was part of a very well-to-do family from an upscale neighborhood in Gaza City. Western observers and officials alike have repeatedly insisted that the economic despair the Palestinians live in as a result of Israel’s “occupation” is what drives people to blow themselves up in order to murder men, women and children. This, clearly, was not the case for Reem Salah al-Rayashi – mother to two loving children and member of a wealthy family. [“Bomber was wealthy, mother of two“]

Comments an editor for JNW:

Economic despair only became rampant among the Palestinians of Judea, Samaria and Gaza following the introduction of Yasser Arafat’s PLO into the area. Prior to 1993, the majority of Palestinian Arabs were enjoying increasingly high standards of living and most could travel freely to jobs in sovereign Israel.
