The following are excerpts from different broadcast on Saudi and other Arab TV channels, in which family members of terror victims tell their story:

Faysal Al-Makki:

I am an orphan. I am an orphan, who will answer my call?

Hunger gnaws at my stomach, and the cold inhabits my loneliness.

This happened all of a sudden.

I stay awake all night long wrestling my troubles.

When I see the smallest trouble I am reminded of my own plight.

This happened all of a sudden.

I stay awake all night long wrestling my troubles.

When I see the smallest trouble I am reminded of my own plight.

A mother who lost her daughter in the Riyadh Bombing: My daughter died in the Riyadh bombing. She was my only daughter. She was three years old. I place my trust in Allah. I had hopes of seeing her as a bride, and marrying her off. I place my trust in Allah. I place my trust in Allah.

Channel 1, Saudi TV

Sister of Terrorist Victim: My mother told me that my brother had died in the terrorists' war [against us]. My brother's killer also died, my brother's killer wasn't operating alone. There are many, and now they are happy that they killed my brother. Mama said to me: "Don't cry, be strong and don't cry at all. Say, 'I place my trust in Allah.'" I place my trust in Allah. I place my trust in Allah.

"Terror allows you to live… …only in tragic memories." "Terror kills a young Saudi." "Our hopes will not live on unless we bury terrorism."
