This chapter recounts the last words of Muhammad Hasan al–Hindi, the third guy who stepped in front of the camera in The Giants video. In the video, he tells that his mission is to set out on a “martyrdom operation against an Israeli bus” if Israel refuses to meet the Giants' demand that it release a number of detainees. He then sends greetings to the members of the Battalions who welcomed him and the other Giants in the West Bank. Upon Rushdi's request, al–Hindi offers a special word to the Cubs of Hamas, the youngsters in the movement, before reiterating that military action is not for everyone. In the end, al–Hindi requested that the mourning ceremony be a wedding party so that there would be a celebration in Paradise.
