This chapter describes the contents of the Hamas tape entitled The Giants of al–Qassam–imlaq. The picture was grainy, of exceptionally bad quality even by Gazan standards. The boy who immediately appeared in the tape looked like a ghost with a gun. In fact, he was already dead, parts of the recording having been made but a few hours before his death. In the video, he says that he wants nothing less than Paradise, and intends to take as many Israelis with him as possible. He's happy as his group, “Force Three”, prepare for their final act, a “martyrdom operation” against an Israeli bus capable of carrying 85 citizens.

Keywords:   al–Qassam–imlaq, Force Three, martyrdom
