Source: The Internet

At the funeral on November 1, 2015 of Raed Jaradat, a Palestinian killed when attempting to stab an Israeli soldier in Hebron, his father asked the father of Danya Irshid, also killed while attempting a stabbing attack, for the hand of his daughter in marriage. To the sound of music and chants of "Allah Akbar," the two fathers embraced and danced. Footage was posted on the Internet.


Following are excerpts:


Announcer: [Jaradat's father] asks [the father] of rmartyr Danya Irshid for his daughter's hand in marriage for [his son] the martyr in Paradise.


Jaradat's father is lifted on a man's shoulders and embraced by other men


We congratulate [the martyrs] Raed and Danya in Paradise. We congratulate them. They are in the company of the prophets for all eternity. We congratulate them. They are in the company of the prophets for all eternity. From today, Danya is Danya Irshid, or rather, Jaradat, and from today, Raed is Raed Irshid.


Crowd applauds and chants "Allah Akbar"


Crowd: Allah Akbar.

Crowd: Allah Akbar.
