This chapter describes the exchange of ideas between Rushdi and Abu–Surur, with Abu–Surur this time having the role of the interviewer. It is unclear why, here at the end of The Giants, Rushdi has seen fit to shroud himself and assume another identity called al–Hajj Barakat. At the end of the interview, Rushdi begins arranging the room for another presentation. To the accompaniment of Hamas anthems, the three Giants choreographed a bizarre dance of weapons as if they were Sufis in trance. They gazed at their weapons as though they were ritual objects. They were everything they needed to be as they headed off to kill many people.

Keywords:   al–Hajj Barkat, Abu–Surur, Muhammad Rushdi, The Giants
