88 years ago today in 1935, a Syrian preacher who turned to resistance under the British mandate in Palestine was killed by British forces in a forest outside of Jenin.

That preacher was named Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, after whom the military wing of Hamas, the Al-Qassam Brigades, are named:

“What the West and Israel permanently misunderstands about the nature of Palestinian resistance was that his name and example lived on.

If Israel thinks they can wipe out Hamas and wipe out Palestinian resistance, history tells us they are completely wrong.

All we are doing is sowing the seeds for an even more powerful round of resistance in one or two decades to come"
