At a rally at the Jenin refugee camp commemorating Palestinian "martyrs", Mustafa Abu Bakr, the grandfather of the Hamas suicide bomber who carried out the 2001 Dolphinarium discotheque massacre that killed 21 Israelis, urged people to wage Jihad. He said: "You must fight the enemy wherever it may be... A fruit knife can take the place of a gun, if it is used well." On the stage with Abu Bakr stood masked members of the various Palestinian factions in combat gear. In addition, several children holding rifles were on the stage. It is noteworthy that two of Abu Bakr's sons were also "martyred" in combat with Israeli security forces, including one who was killed on April 3, 2023. The rally was aired on Palestine Today TV (Palestinian Islamic Jihad) on April 14, 2023.
Mustafa Abu Bakr: "I call upon all of you to fight in support of your religion, and in order to liberate your Al-Aqsa Mosque. You must fight the enemy wherever it is. Brothers, Jihad is the pinnacle of Islam.
"By Allah, brothers, a tiny fruit knife can take place of a gun, if it is used well – at the right time and place."
