By Allah, today is the best day of my life. I feel that our Lord is pleased with me, because I am offering something [my son] for Him. I wish to sacrifice more [sons] for Allah's forgiveness, and for the flag of Islam.
Hamas has been looking forward to implementing Allah's promise, whatever time it might take. The prophet [Muhammad] said: “The time (of Resurrection) will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!” Sahih Muslim, Book 41, Number 6985]. This quote and countless others come from scriptures in the Koran and the words of the Prophet Muhammad found in the Hadith.
