On December 18, 2012, senior Hamas commander Zaher Jabarin gave an interview to Hamas’ Al-Quds TV. In the interview, Jabarin said Hamas labors “day and night” educating Palestinian children in Gaza to become suicide bombers.
Becoming a suicide bomber is a sought-after career move, Jabarin claimed. “The Palestinian youngsters, the resistance and Jihad warriors, fight and quarrel over performing a courageous suicide operation,” he said.
Because suicide bombers are ready to die, said Jabarin, Israel has no way of preventing them from carrying out their attacks.
Jabarin added that the time for resistance is over: Hamas is now preparing for the battle of liberation. He predicted the interviewer would soon “interview me — if Allah wished that we stay alive — from the courts of Al-Aqsa and Jerusalem.”
