Izz al-Din al-Qassam's grandson: I support 2-state solution

Grandson of legendary Palestinian resistance fighter has laid down arms, supports peace with Israel

Most people know it as Jenin, the city IDF generals call the "womb of suicide bombers," but since Sheikh Izz al-Din al-Qassam was killed here 75 years ago this week, Arabs refer to it as Jenin al-Qassam. It's a name indicating pride, signifying the fighting heritage of the most highly esteemed figure in the Palestinian resistance, a figure whose religious declarations and role as leader of a terror group linked Islam with military might. It is for good reason Hamas named its military wing after him.

  • Yeah we took this guy down, we fought a few counter-terrorism campaigns between 1880 and 1939...

    Its estimated that up to 20% of Palestine's population was wiped out in the 'first intifada' against British rule and Zionism in the mid-1930's
    And the Zionists repaid us with the King David Bombing, the worst terrorist attack up to 9/11...

    • 2 statements of yours brought huge question marks- 20% of the pales. population was wipe out during the 30's??? have any refferences to this?? i never heard about such a claim.

      the king david hotel was the worst terror attack till 9/11????? i dont think there is any room, not even one inch, for comparison.


      pls notice that jews (zionists) also were killed in the hotel bombing- actually the ones who did it made several phone calls to the british before the bomb went off and told them More..

    • King David was the worst in terms of civilian death toll

      That is an estimate of Palestinian population loss that I read, and I'll try to dig out the source as I agree its a shocking figure.
      However it may well include refugees to other States as a result of the disorder...
