Jamal Abu Samhadana, a 43-year-old explosives expert, is a key target for
Israel and moves stealthily, switching cars and hideouts, despite his promotion to security chief by the Hamas-led government…
“The American government and people will pay a dear price for this aggressive and criminal policy against the Arab and Muslim people,” he said…
“We are happy when any American soldier is killed anywhere in the world, because the American Army is an aggressor against all the people in the world, particularly the Arab and Muslim worlds,” he said. “The American people are known to be peaceful, so they are asked to move to bring down this terrorist government in Washington, so that the American people are safe from any attacks or retaliation.”
Abu Samhadana, No. 2 on Israel’s wanted list, wore a loose-fitting shirt and a baseball cap instead of his trademark guerrilla-style, black-belted uniform.
I’ve heard a few people today say it’s too bad ground forces couldn’t have taken out these guys, just to have seen the looks on their faces at the moment of truth. But not me.
I like the idea of it being done with airplanes.
