Headline: “The Sbarro operation - The guitar that shook the [Zionist] entity and reaped 20 Zionists”
      “Aug. 9, 2001, was not an ordinary day in the memory of the Zionist entity’s leaders...
When the Sbarro restaurant on Jaffa Street in occupied Jerusalem was full of Zionist settlers at lunchtime, Martyrdom-Seeker from [Hamas’ military wing Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam Brigades, Izz Al-Din Al-Masri (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 15, 7 of them children) had an opportunity to mingle with them together with his booby-trapped guitar, and playing the melodies of revenge on those who defiled the land, and violated [Palestinian] blood and honor...
Faced with the scenes of great destruction of the restaurant, the occupation was unable to hide its killed and wounded, and it announced the death of 20 Zionists (sic., 15 Israelis) and the wounding of 120 others (sic., 130). The news of the operation made Palestinians joyous everywhere. The largest celebrations in honor of the hero [suicide bomber Al-Masri] were at the Jenin refugee camp in the northern occupied West Bank, the lion’s den that 29-year-old Martyrdom-Seeker Izz Al-Din Al-Masri came from. Masses of people went out to the streets, cheered, and distributed candies out of happiness.”
