Posted text: “(Excerpt of a letter written by Abu Bakr’s son –Ed.)

My dear father,

Just today, from the trenches of volunteering for the homeland and from the place where people are working for the citizens, I have really come to know what the meaning of the homeland is and I have come to adhere more to the concepts, as I have understood even better the meaning of what you did for the freedom of your people whom you loved. It may be that I have succeeded in analyzing the letters of the secret of your eternal love for the homeland… and every ‘N’ (i.e., the last letter of the word “homeland” and the first letter of the following sentence in Arabic) is ‘We will die so that Palestine will live,’ and we will fill the world with produce. My father, today I have become more aware that all of this is worthy of great sacrifice, and today I have understood that the homeland's embrace is more significant than the small [nuclear] family's embrace, that great people only make great sacrifices, and I have known that there is no option but that the bride price of the freedom of a homeland like Palestine be the lives of the great people from among its children and their pure blood. My father, the blood of my grandfather Mahmoud, my paternal uncle Ammar, and the years of your life that are approaching 20 years behind bars are not [too] much for the homeland, because a good seed will certainly yield a full and complete victory, Allah willing. Thus promised Allah in His book [the Quran], and thus we the patient and those awaiting reward believe."
