Cue the celebrations among the self-proclaimed lovers of death in Gaza and Judea and Samaria.
Islamic supremacists and jihadis frequently affirm how much they love death. Austrian Muslim teenage girls who recently traveled to Syria for jihad announced: “Death is our goal.” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said: “I’m even longing for death, you vagabond.” A Muslim child preacher recently taunted those he has been taught to hate most: “Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan.” Jihad mass murderer Mohamed Merah said that he “loved death more than they loved life.”
Ayman al-Zawahiri’s wife advised Muslim women: “I advise you to raise your children in the cult of jihad and martyrdom and to instil in them a love for religion and death.” And as one jihadist put it, “We love death. You love your life!” And another: “The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death.” That was from Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah.
This idea comes from the Qur’an: Say, “O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are allies of Allah, excluding the people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.” (62:6)
“Soldier killed after terrorist drops marble slab off building,” by Zvi Manasseh, Lev Haolam, May 27, 2018:
Israeli soldier Ronen Lubarksy, 20, from the central town of Rehovot, was laid to rest in the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem at 2am on Sunday morning, two days after he was critically injured during an arrest raid in the Ramallah area, a few miles north-east of the Israeli capital.
He was posthumously promoted to the rank of staff sergeant.
While conducting an early morning arrest raid in the al-Am’ari camp outside Ramallah on Thursday, a squad of troops came under attack as a large marble block was thrown from a rooftop, an IDF representative said.
The IDF said that the soldiers had been sent on a mission to apprehend members of a terror cell responsible for carrying out a number of shooting attacks in the Samaria and Jerusalem areas. One terrorist was arrested in the course of the raid, and two others were also tracked down and arrested later on Thursday….
According to the army, the assailant was not fired upon and is believed to have made a clean getaway….
