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

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.

The following are excerpts of Al-Ja'abari's statements:

Head of Hamas' military wing Ahmed Al-Ja'abari:

"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."

[Al-Jazeera, July 3, 2006]

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."
[Hamas' website, Jan. 1, 2006]

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]
