In a May 7, 2022 rally in support of Hamas' Gaza leader Yahya Sinwar that aired on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza), Hamas MP Mushir Al-Masri saluted the perpetrators of the recent deadly terrorist attack in the Israeli cities of Elad, Tel Aviv, and Hadera. He said that the Palestinians will uproot the Zionist "thorns" with their axes, cleavers, knives, guns, and nails, adding that the Palestinians' sword will not be sheathed until Israel's leaders are beheaded. Al-Masri declated: "We love martyrdom." It is noteworthy that Hamas' Gaza leader Yahya Sinwar recently encouraged Palestinians to carry out attacks against Israelis with guns, cleavers, and axes (see MEMRI TV 9527).
Mushir Al-Masri: "Our slogan is: 'Victory or martyrdom!' We love martyrdom for the sake of Allah. We follow in the footsteps of our leaders who willingly sacrificed their souls as martyrs. We do not care about all the threats. We do not care that [Israel] is a nuclear country. We stand with the divine truth and with faith as hard as steel, confronting this enemy, until it vanishes from our entire land, Allah willing.
"[The enemy] has not learnt this lesson yet. We say to it, loud and clear, with the voice of the righteous, who have faith in Allah's support: the sword of Jerusalem has not been sheathed yet, and Allah willing, it will never be sheathed, until we chop off the heads of the occupation's leaders, all over our land. Allah willing, tomorrow comes soon to those who look forward to it.
"We salute the mujahideen rebels of our Palestinian people, who taught the Zionist enemy harsh and painful lessons, and sent a clear message of blood and fire:
"Jerusalem is a red line. [We salute] those who struck down the Zionists in Tel Aviv, Hadera, and Elad. [We salute] those who picked up the cleavers, the axes, and guns. The heroes shattered their heads with axes, as if they were thorns that have to be uprooted.
"And indeed, oh Zionists, you are thorns and we are going to uproot you, Allah willing, with exes, cleavers, knives, guns, and our nails, Allah willing. We will not leave a single one of you, and that is not hard for Allah to do."
