Here’s something shocking from this Heinz-funded Web site, as in Theresa-Heinz Kerry: by a Sarah Smiles, about widows of “martyrs” from the terrorist group Hezbollah. “Deified in paradise and venerated on earth for fighting Israel, Hizbullah’s martyrs are nothing short of heroes in southern Lebanon,” Smiles rhapsodizes. “Their wives are in turn admired, because of their husband’s sacrifice.”

Why would Women’s eNews want to promote terrorism, which after all kills Israeli women as well as men? Maybe the answer is in the opening anecdote:

Like many Shiite Muslim girls in southern Lebanon, Rima Naji was married early, at the tender age of 13. By 15 she had delivered her first child–a healthy boy–and by 19 her husband Sheikh Fadi Abboud was dead.

“He was martyred on the 10th of February 1995. He was 21 years old,” she says. “Thank God he died according to the objectives of Hizbullah.”
