"Our Hatred For These People Is So Intense That We Wished... That We Could Have Been Bombs"
Ahmad Ibrahimi: "I swear on Allah, live on TV, that we felt no fear whatsoever of those brothers of apes and pigs. By Allah, I loathed them before, and my hatred of them has only grown, not because they punished and humiliated us, but because I had thought them to be worthy enemies, but it turns out that they are too despicable even to be called our enemies, because they are not our equals. They are cowards.
SUPPORT OUR WORK
"I took an oath that if they stamped my passport, I would rip it up and leave without a passport. Our hatred for these people is so intense that we wished, at those moments, that we could have been bombs, and blown up among those brothers of apes and pigs.
"I believe in the principle that all the infidels are one group. No good can come of any of those infidels. All these people have issued resolutions – like the Goldstone report or some rulings of the court in The Hague – but when the time comes to implement them, none of them can put Israel in its place."
"We Do Not Want a National Palestinian State or Borders – We Want Palestine in Its Entirety"
"If we want to profit from what happened, we must mobilize the Islamic peoples and the Arab nation, because the Palestinian cause is a purely Islamic religious issue. If Palestine is liberated, the whole world will change. We do not want a national Palestinian state or borders. We want Palestine in its entirety.
"[The Palestinians] said to us: 'Don’t be scared of them. You will see that they are a Mickey Mouse army.' This turned out to be true. I swear by Allah that we saw their soldiers crying. By Allah, we saw signs of urine and feces on their clothes."
