MembersTerrorist: “I live on with Allah in heaven!”

A letter from the Tel Aviv terrorist shows that Palestinian terrorists see life differently than we can often understand.

In the foreign media, Palestinian terrorists are mostly glorified as heroes and victims of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The religious Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar , with whom Israel Today has had several discussions over the years, has translated the two-page suicide note from the terrorist behind Saturday’s Tel Aviv attack and interpreted it in the context of the Koran. The purpose of the translation is to elucidate the terrorist’s motives in comparison to the statements made in the media. Palestinian terrorists look at life differently than we can often understand.

The terrorist believes that real life is found in death and for this reason he is simply not afraid to carry out these terrible attacks in Israel. For he expects to be shot by armed Israelis. The Israeli shoots in self-defence and the terrorist shoots at Israelis to get to heaven. What drives Palestinian attacks in the country is a spiritual urge to meet Allah in heaven. This longing for Allah neutralizes all fear. On the contrary, the Israeli is doing him a favour by shooting the terrorist, the letter says. Palestinians call it “love of Allah” and for Israelis it is terror and madness. Education is behind this, because the young man did not invent this himself. Preaching in mosques brainwashes young Palestinians.

The date is interesting. The terrorist wrote his will on February 25, 2023. It means that he planned this attack months ago.

The letter and the translation:

Page One:

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Merciful, prayer and peace be upon the Messenger (who was sent) with the sword of Mohammad to help the oppressed and humiliated.

I testify that there is no god but Allah, I testify that Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.

I, Kamal Mahmoud Abu Bakr (Abu Dajana) tell you my last words and speak of no will, for there is a will for the heir (in heaven and it reads as follows without introduction.

I belong to Islam and in no way consent to be subordinated under any other flag than to be considered the flag “There is no god but Allah, Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah”. My labeling is Islam only. Do not include me in any faction, organization or party because I am Muslim and that is enough for me.

Wherever you find my body, bury me and don’t put my body in the fridge. Don’t build me a grave and don’t erect a tombstone for me.

Whoever publishes a picture of me, a proclamation, or a song about me, in whatever form, I will be their opponent on Judgment Day.

Don’t set up mourning tents for me, because that has no origin in our religion.

And do not eulogise about me, because eulogy is for the dead and not for the martyrs (based on the verse in the Qur’an that says: “Do not think that those who were killed for the sake of Allah are really dead. They are alive and from the hand of Allah they get their food and we ask Allah to accept us.”)

Don’t pray for me, for martyrs are not prayed for (for they are not dead.)

Side Two:

Hence my advice, my brothers and sisters, direct your intentions only to Allah, for Allah only accepts those deeds done in loyalty to Him alone. Lest pride in any way or for any reason invade our soul and our memory be blotted out in this world.

I swear by Allah and repeat the oath four times that I long to see Allah more than any other human being in this world. I swear by Allah that what makes me sad is my staying in this world because I prefer the next world and I sold my soul to Allah who gave it to me. (based on the Quran).

I ask Allah for forgiveness, I regret everything and turn back and ask Allah to stay true to my intention and accept my action (terrorist attack).

Finally, I testify that there is no god but Allah and I testify that Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.

Kamal Abu Bakr, Abu Dayana. 02/25/2023

    Thank you, Aviel, for sharing this letter. All of us, as part of humanity, are involved in spiritual warfare; our enemy, Satan, is always working to deceive us.
    I thought of Saul of Tarsus, a highly educated Jew brought up in Jerusalem at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the strictness of the law, yet believed God required him to kill those who believed in Jesus. (Acts 22:3-5)
    The truth is, Jesus is the One who bore our sins and made intercession for the transgressors. (Isa. 53:12)
    Revelation 19:13-16, records, “He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God…and He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”
    God greatly loves us and I am praying earnestly for the entirety of the Middle East, for the realization of God’s love for us through Christ Jesus.

    How sad that he has been so badly deceived and will be burning in hell for ever. 😥

    • siouxfan says:

      Not will be burning, but is burning now and forever! This terrorist made his choice Jesus or Satan and he chose Satan!! I am not sorry for him nor sad he got what he deserved!!

      • psalm100al says:

        Yes, I should have used the word ‘now’ and this is the truth for anyone who rejects the Lord Jesus Christ and His perfect blood atonement sacrifice for their sins forgiven, they will go to hell like a bullet and once in there, there is no escape! EVER! That is according to Almighty God’s powerful, living words in the KJV Holy Bible.

    Indoctrinated IGNORANCE is wrong.
    Saying that someone will burn in hell because of an Ideology., is also an Evil. Killing in hatred is Evil.
    Christianity has killed many from such a Ideology. The Holochaust arose like a Cancer because of it
    .I do not see YESHUA as God the Creator and I have been told I will also burn in hell. Its all born out of a Religious Indoctrination.🤔 🔯

  4. siouxfan says:

    Annette read Luke 16: 19-31 in the Bible it talks of Hell. Which is a real place!! God sent his Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sins, mine and the world. You must repent and change your way of thinking and doing and accept in your heart that Jesus came and died for you!! When one dies the body goes back to dust and the Soul goes to one of two places Heaven or Hell and if Jesus is not your Lord and Savior you are correct about one thing you will burn in Hell for Eternity. The Bible (Christianity) is the only religion that tells that God sent his Son to die a violent death on the Cross for the Sins of the world! Time on this earth is short where will you spend eternity? God Will Not send you to hell, people do that by not accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior!! It’s your choice and you will always remember your choice in Hell!! God loves You!!

  5. Robert's World says:

    Perhaps a different response would be “woe” or οὐαί in the Greek, such as Matthew 18:7 where Yeshua is in grief over the negative or apathetic response to the Good News.
    My Muslim close contact is also deceived about what is truth and what is salvation but I still reach out to him with respect and kindness.
