Text on image: “The will of Martyrdom-seeker Muhammad Daragmeh
In the name of All Merciful Allah, ‘And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision’ [Quran, Sura 3:169, Sahih International translation]. Allah spoke the truth.
I, the living Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Daragmeh Al-Shou'ani, follow the path of Martyrdom and the Martyrs and answer the call of Allah – ‘And kill them wherever you overtake them’ [Quran, Sura 2:191, Sahih International translation], and ‘Allah will punish them by your hands’ [Quran, Sura 9:14, Sahih International translation]. I hereby proudly write my will to the members of the Palestinian people, and say to them: ‘Follow the path of Martyrdom and “Do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior”’ [Quran, Sura 3:139, Sahih International translation]. I say to the despicable dog [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon that I will pay back double, and will avenge the members of my people in the Balata refugee camp, the Nablus refugee camp, and in the Martyrs’ refugee camp - the Jenin refugee camp, and all of the Martyrs in Palestine.
Allahu Akbar (i.e., “Allah is greatest”), Allahu Akbar, glory to Allah”
