“Palestinian women prefer to marry wounded terrorists who receive a PA salary, rather than jobless university grads,” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik and Itamar Marcus. Palestinian Media Watch, September 9, 2019:

Wounded Palestinian terrorists are popular as marriage material because of the lifetime monthly financial reward the Palestinian Authority is paying them.

Official PA TV host: “The young women have actually begun to prefer young men who, let’s say, are wounded or have a wound, because in the end they have a monthly salary from the [PA] Ministry of Social Affairs, from the prisoners’ institution, or from the institution for the wounded.
