Posted text: “The anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of quick-responding Raed Al-Karmi

Jan. 14 of every year is the anniversary of the death as a Martyr of quick-responding heroic commander Raed Sa’id Al-Karmi ‘Abu Filastin’ from the city of Tulkarem, and of the outstanding founding commanders of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing) in the West Bank districts…
He was known for his nationalism from his childhood and went through all of the stages connected to the national struggle. He was a simple and modest man who did not have a higher education, as he did not complete junior high school studies, and in this way a difficult life course began that influenced the shaping and formation of his national personality later on…

He loved the game ‘Jews and Arabs,’ a game that children of the neighborhood would play. He always played the role of the Arab who, with his simple weapon, attacked the treacherous Jew who occupied his homeland and settled in it…

Fear began to permeate the ranks of the occupation army when Al-Karmi succeeded in killing approximately 12 Israeli soldiers and civilians (sic., 9), and thus a decision was made to assassinate him by the most senior leader of the [Zionist] entity state, criminal [former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon…

Our heroic Martyr Al-Karmi died from an explosive that the Zionist Israeli Security Agency planted in the wall of the cemetery, next to which he passed on his way to his wife in the eastern part of the city of Tulkarem on Jan. 14, 2002… and the brigades declared a renewal of their armed activity against the occupation.

The Martyrdom-seeking (Istish’had) operations began (i.e., suicide bombings), and the burning of the [second] Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) began to grow. After the assassination of Al-Karmi the resistance fighters imposed a curfew on the residents, soldiers, and settlements of the Palestinian West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and succeeded in carrying out a number of operations on the same day on which Al-Karmi died as a Martyr, including the attack on a convoy of Israeli soldiers, which led to great losses among their ranks (1 soldier was murdered and another wounded –Ed.).

The following day (sic., Jan. 17, 2002) a quality response took place, as self-sacrificing fighter (Fida’i) Abd Al-Salam Hassouna succeeded in crossing the occupation’s checkpoints and carrying out a quality Martyrdom-seeking operation in one of the halls of joy, and turned it into a hall of sadness (i.e., murdered 6 at a Bat Mitzvah celebration). Likewise, Martyr Sa’id Ramadan carried out a Martyrdom-seeking operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) in Jerusalem, and a response also came from the brigade of female Martyrdom-seekers, as heroic Martyr Wafa Idris carried out her heroic operation (i.e., first Palestinian female suicide bombing, 1 murdered) that sowed fear among the sons of Zion.

The response in Gaza was hard, and came from a number of Martyrdom-seekers – prime among them heroic Martyr Muhammad Al-Qasir who carried out the Kissufim checkpoint operation (i.e., terrorist attack, 3 murdered) in southern Gaza, Martyrdom-seeker Ayman Samir Joudeh who carried out his heroic operation and invaded the office compound of the Beit Hanoun-Erez checkpoint and eliminated all those who were in it (sic., Joudeh murdered 1 before being shot and killed by Israeli border policemen at the scene), and the invasion operation (i.e., terrorist attack, 1 murdered) of Martyrdom-seeker Muhammad Al-Qattawi into the settlement of Netzarim in the center of the Gaza Strip.

In the month following the death as a Martyr of Al-Karmi, the coward Sharon’s decision cost 133 killed Israelis (sic., from Jan. 14 – Feb. 14, 2002, a total of 23 people were murdered by Palestinian terrorists) and hundreds of wounded and disabled.”
