Ahmad Daqamseh, a Jordanian soldier who murdered seven Israeli schoolgirls and wounded six others in the infamous March 13, 1997 "Island of Peace massacre," was released from a Jordanian prison after serving 20 years. Upon his release, Daqamseh made a short statement to the Al-Jazeera network, in which he referred to Israelis as "human garbage vomited into our midst by the world's nations." He added that this "human garbage" must be removed, "whether by burning or by burying." The Al-Jazeera network aired the comments on March 12.

 

Ahmad Dagamseh: "The [Israelis] constitute human garbage, vomited into our midst by the world's nations. Unfortunately they have come to the purest land after Mecca and Medina. This garbage must be removed, whether by burning or by burying. The day will come, Allah willing. If it is not done by our generation, Allah willing, the generations to come will burn this human garbage."
