We say to our Palestinian people in the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel): Decorate your skies and decorate your land for Karim’s reception. Every day that passes is a victory for us for the reception of these two mighty heroes, who taught us the organizational method of operation, what politics is, and what imprisonment is… They are shining stars in the skies of Palestine. We say to them: We bow before you in honor and admiration, you are greater than everything in Palestine. You are all of Palestine.”
