PMW Special report on Operation Pillar of Defense #1

From the PMW archives:

Al-Ja'abari: "The Jew who comes to the soil of Palestine...
is fighting us, and we will fight him and kill him"

"Sacrifice your souls for the sake of Allah,
until the rats (i.e., Israelis) return to their holes"
"Haifa, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv... all of Palestine"
will be liberated

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
 
Launching what has been named "Operation Pillar of Defense," Israel killed the head of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Al-Ja'abari yesterday. The operation comes as a response to Hamas' and other terrorist organizations' continuous rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Al-Ja'abari was a member of Hamas' political bureau and the leader of Hamas' military wing since 2002. He actively encouraged suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks against Israel.

Al-Ja'abari was Hamas' chief negotiator during the negotiations to release Hamas-captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

When asked in an interview on Al-Jazeera in 2006 about targeting civilians, Al-Ja'abari said:
"The Jew who comes to the soil of Palestine is a murderer, a criminal, a thief and an occupier. That is the Jew we are fighting. Whereas the Jew in his synagogue in Britain or in the US, we have nothing to do with him. But if he comes to the soil of Palestine - then he is fighting us, and we will fight him and kill him on the soil of Palestine."
 

Following Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Al-Ja'abari encouraged members of Hamas' military wing, the "brave Jihad fighters," to "sacrifice [their] souls for the sake of Allah" in order to liberate "Jerusalem, the West Bank, Haifa, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv, until the liberation of the homeland, all of Palestine."

In another statement around the same time, Al-Ja'abari expressed satisfaction that Hamas possessed "the technology that can precisely strike the city of Sderot (town in southern Israel) and other places in the '48 territories (i.e., Israel)."

Palestinian Media Watch has also documented Al-Ja'abari's praise for Palestinian women who participate in Jihad against Israel.

Head of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Al-Ja'abari:
"Brave Jihad fighters, you sacrifice your souls for the sake of Allah... until the rats (i.e., Israelis) return to their holes. Today, Gaza [was liberated by Hamas]. Tomorrow, Allah willing, Jerusalem. Tomorrow, the West Bank. Tomorrow, Haifa, Jaffa, and Tel Aviv (Israeli cities)... until the liberation of the homeland, all of Palestine."

Head of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Al-Ja'abari:
"Praise Allah, the Jihad fighters who manufacture [rockets] have obtained this technology that can precisely strike the city of Sderot (town in southern Israel) and other places in the '48 territories (i.e., Israel)."
[Hamas' website, Jan. 2006]

Head of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Al-Ja'abari:
"[Female suicide bomber] Reem Riyashi's operation (i.e., terror attack) led to a major change in the Jihad operations regarding the participation of women. Therefore, [a Palestinian] mother no longer stops her son when he goes on Ribat and Jihad (religious war)."
[Hamas' website, Jan. 2006]
