Hamas MP Fathi Hammad Threatens Further Kidnappings in PA Territories, Israel, and Abroad

Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Hamas MP and Director of Al-Aqsa TV Fathi Hammad, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on October 24, 2007.

Fathi Hamad: I turn to [the Palestinian prisoners] from this mass rally, the goal of which is to express support for you, and to express rage at the enemies of Allah. We declare explicitly and in all honesty, and we sweat before Allah that we will not sit idly by, but will continue the method of kidnapping. It seems that the kidnapping of Shalit was not sufficient to force the enemies of Allah to sign an honorable deal, which would lead to your release with your heads held high. Therefore, your brothers in all the brigades of the mujahideen, and especially the 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, are planning further kidnapping operations in several places. They are planning operations not only in Gaza, but also in the West Bank, and the 1948 territories, as well as abroad.


Let me inform you that, Allah willing, our 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades will soon manage to add other Shalits to Shalit.
