The shame of premature detonation

It happens when you least expect it.  Too bad there is no do-over.

Gaza fighter died in 'jihad mission' 
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said one of the group's fighters was killed Thursday morning, when an explosive device detonated while the young man was on a "jihad mission," a statement said.

It is the second accidental death of a Gaza resistance fighter reported in as many days, following the death of an Al-Qassam brigadesman in Khan Younis on Wednesday.

A DFLP statement said National Resistance Brigades fighter Khader Abu Elbeh, 22, was seriously wounded during an operation west of the Jabaliya area in the northern Gaza Strip and later died of his injuries.

Medical sources in Gaza confirmed that a man was pronounced dead after being seriously wounded by a bomb which exploded, apparently prematurely.

In their statement, the NRB mourned the death of the fighter, saying he was killed while "on a jihad mission," and vowed to continue resistance activities as a "goal and a promise to our nation."

This site frequently reports the news from Palestine with an Islamophobic and philo-semitic bias. It claims that pacifist volunteers from Western countries who risk their lives are allies of 'terrorists'. The following article, which would never make it into the Zionist American mass media, explains how the main Islamic group in the Gaza strip tries to combat the most extreme elements, who hate all foreigners.

Zionists like Barry Sommer try to amalgamate all Islamists together. This is a strategy to try to make Americans think Israel's opponents - which is pretty much everyone - are necessarily the USA's enemies too.
