The following are excerpts from an interview with Raid Al-'Aidi of the "Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades" that changed their name to "Arafat the Martyr Brigades":
Al-'Aidi: We call from here to all the heroes of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, throughout the homeland to oppose this occupier, and strike this occupier anywhere, with no holds barred. We in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades will direct our painful blows against this monstrous entity. The Palestinian state will be achieved only by strengthening the resistance, supporting the resistance, and the continuing the resistance, until this oppressing occupier leaves our land, since this occupier doesn't understand the language of peace or surrender. This occupier understand only the language of gunfire and gun powder and we will teach this occupier, Allah willing, a lesson as we have taught it in the past, in Tel Aviv, Hadera, and everywhere. We will escalate our blows against this occupier in these difficult days the Palestinian people is going through.
