Arafat's speech after Jerusalem Tunnels opening, which led to violence

[Quran:] "Allah bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because Paradise will be theirs: They shall fight in the way of Allah, and shall kill and be killed." My righteous brothers, our righteous Martyrs, rest in peace, because our blood is cheap compared to the goal which joined us together and has separated us for a while. But we shall meet soon [as Martyrs], Allah willing, in the highest place in Heaven." [The day after the speech, dozens of people were killed in Palestinian Authority-initiated violence.]
