Who Was Raed Al-Attar?

Raed al-Attar, 40, was killed early Thursday morning (August 21, 2014) in a joint IDF-Shin Bet operation in Rafah, along with two other senior military commanders from the Izz a-Din al-Qassam wing of Hamas.

Al-Attar was involved in the 2006 abduction of former IDF soldier Gilad Shalit at an Israeli army outpost near the Kerem Shalom crossing. He remained involved in Shalit’s captivity for the next five years, until the soldier was freed in 2011 in exchange for more than 1,000 Arab terrorists held in Israeli prisons.

Al-Attar — who headed a Hamas military unit in Rafah — was also responsible for the recent abduction and suicide bombing murder of IDF Givati Lt. Hadar Goldin during Operation Protective Edge. The terrorist’s Rafah unit killed at least two other soldiers during the attack in which Goldin was abducted, and attacked and wounded a number of other IDF soldiers as well.

An IDF soldier was killed in 1994 attack in which al-Attar was involved; by 2002, he was planning attacks, and an IDF outpost near Kerem Shalom was the target of one of his plots. Four soldiers were killed.

Al-Attar was known most recently for his engineering and supervision of the construction of tunnels that ran from Gaza into Israeli territory. He was an extremely dangerous man, a wily and sophisticated terrorist, and an irreplacable commander in Hamas.

But he is dead.

    ALLAHU AKBAR! TOP HAMAS LEADERS ARE BEING KILLED BY IDF AIR-STRIKES! O ALLAH! HELP IDF DESTROY MORE OF HAMAS WICKED LEADERS!

    Praise ALLAH for the successes of IDF airstrikes on those Mohammadan idol worshippers of allah who are Israel’s implacable enemies. See—their allah indwelling in the Black Stone is unable to listen to their prayers and do anything to exterminate the Jews and destroy Israel, because it can’t!

    O ALLAH! Please continue show favours to Israel and grant successes to the Israeli Army and leaders to defend Israel to prove yet again that the Jews in Israel belong to ALLAH’s party whereas the losers in Hamas belong to allah’s party. (Q58:19, 22). Please have mercy on the innocent Muslims in Gaza. Protect them as You have protected the Jews and other Israelis.

    Because You are the One Who led the Israelites out of ancient Egypt under Moses Your servant, crossed the Red Sea with them and into the Holy Land You have given to the Jewish patriarchs in Your unchanging covenants with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and promised to their Jewish descendants too. (Quranic references in Q5:21, Q7:137-138, Q17:104, Q26:59).

    So prove to the idolatrous Mohammadan moon-god stone-worshippers of allah that they must stop worshipping allah and praying to it that dwells in the Black Stone; but command them to join with the Jews to worship You, O ALLAH!—-God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Then there will be peace in Gaza and all of Palestine that followers and stone worshippers of allah and his long-dead false prophet Mohammad are trying so hard to destroy.

    For You are YHWH (and G_d in English), The Almighty Creator Who is always the Great I am. And they call You ALLAH in Arabic (and Shangdi in Chinese, Supreme Deity of the ancient Chinese pantheon)!

    So “Inspire us, O ALLAH! to be thankful to Thee for Thy favours to us and our loved ones to do good deeds which will please Thee. Admit us, through Thy mercy, O ALLAH! to be among Thy righteous.” (An-Naml 27:19).

    “For the noblest in ALLAH’s sight is he/she who is the most righteous.” (Al-Hujurat 49:13) Ameen!

    ALLAHU AKBAR! YHWH IS AKBAR!!
