Imprisoned murderer’s nephew wants to “buy a rifle” to set him free and take back Jaffa and Jerusalem

Sister of terrorist prisoner Mahmoud Abu Jneid: “My son Muhammad always says to me: “Mom, tell me about Uncle Mahmoud [Abu Jneid].” Even when he was younger he would always tell me: “I want to buy a rifle.” [I asked:] “Why do you want to buy a rifle?” [He said:] “I want to bring back Uncle Mahmoud, and we will bring you back.” Several times we took them to Jaffa (i.e., Israeli city) and I told him: “Son, this is our city, it belongs to us.” He told me: “I want to go see Uncle Mahmoud in prison and bring both of you back to Jaffa, because Jaffa is ours and Jerusalem is also ours. The Jews took it. But I want to get Uncle Mahmoud out [of prison] so we can go together.” In their eyes their uncle is an extraordinary hero.”
