Jon66 asked a the naive question to give him a proof where the term ‘martyrdom operation is used when referring to someone killed NOT as part of sucide bombing or other attack?
The Marh 11, 1978 martyrdom operation of Dalal Mughrabi and her other 10 Palestinian and Lebanese freedom fighters comes to mind.
Their goal was to attack the ISISraeli Ministry of Defense in Tel Aviv or the Knesset and to demand the freedom of Palestinian prisoners (like 4 of the Tamimi women) held in israHell.
Like Ahed Tamimi, Dalal Mughrabi have a choice to be assigned and work at the PLO office in Italy. She turned that luxurious offer down . Asked her mom to fix her her favorite food, gave her pistol as gift to her father and left on the that day without telling them where she was going.
She and her comrades-in -arm did not have suicide west. 8 of them fell as martyrs in a shootout with the IOF, Two survived. As Dalal laid down motionless due to a severe injury, the leader of IOF unit in-charged of the operation on the day was no other than Former ISISraeli prime minister Ehud Barak. He told his subordinates, leave her for me. He then empty his magazine into her body, lift her up by her hair and have his picture with her body as trophy.
I share Annie Robins views. the IOF and the illegal Jewish settlers are illegal and nothing more. They are criminal trespassers. So, the are a fair targets. They are lucky they are not in the US. Under US law, you have the right to shoot them dead. It is called Make my day Law.
A better question for jonn 66 to pose would be, ” who is responsible for luring Jews from all over the world into Palestine, put them on a stolen lands and in the middle of war zone? Blaming Palestinians for the violence is like blaming a woman for kicking her rapist in the stomach.
