An Israeli analyst told CNNs Wolf Blitzer Friday morning that he received information from reliable sources that 3,000 Hamas elite soldiers told their families goodbye and appear ready to carry out suicide attacks on Israel.
Middle East analyst Gershon Baskin said that all the fighters were equipped with suicide vests and that they had expected to die in terrorist attacks.
Baskin spoke just hours after a Hamas suicide attack, believed to have been conducted by the groups militant wing Ezzedine al-Qassam brigade, killed two Israeli soldiers. During the surprise Hamas attack, which happened two hours into the 72-hour agreement for a cease fire, the militants captured an Israeli officer.
You say these elite fighting forces theyre all prepared they all go in with suicided vests ready to kill themselves in order to kill Israelis? Blitzer asked as Baskin nodded.
I was told by someone who had spoke to al-Qassam, the military wing of officer who said that before the ground operation began they were all instructed to go to their families and say goodbye to their families with the intent that they would not be returning alive from this battle,(continued)

As in, the only ones “elite” enough to kill themselves to kill Jews. See special, exceptional, in reference to; stupid, retarded, insane, moronic.
I would prefer they call them some form of special units, instead of “elite”.
Well, I don’t work at “The Blaze” nor would I, so your complaint needs to be aimed their way.
Not sure why they don’t figure out that if “paradise” was so great maybe their leaders would lead them into battle instead of hiding while they send out those way down the ladder to go to “paradise.
That American turned Syrian terrorist was shooting his mouth off saying that the SEALS just sent bin Laden to paradise so OBL was happy. Yeah, right. Then why was he hiding.
I don’t understand why they didn’t capture him. They shot and killed him unarmed. Then respected his religious wishes and buried him at sea? We’ve become a nation of pussies, feminized men that are too afraid of being called intolerant, to stand up for what is right.
2nd, when you are the thread poster, we generally address our posts to your post #1, my post was to the thread in general, it did not call for a hostile personal response.
If you are going to post threads, then you need to unwind a little.
Can you imagine the trouble we’d have had with imprisoning OBL and probably having a Holder mandated trial?? I’m glad they killed him. That part of unfinished business is over.
A sad horrid thing is that people who don’t think like we do (supporters of Israel) somehow imagine that in order to go to such extremes, Israel must have done something really bad to the Palestinians therefore there must be a smidgeon of justification for it, perhaps more than a smidge. ?
It takes years of intense training to don a vest and push a button.
No kidding, see post 5.
Elites are the ones who shower more then once a month
Those who attack Israel should keep in mind that in the quest for a lasting peace, Israel gave back Gaza to the Palestinians. Unfortunately,
Those who ignore History are damned to repeat it George Santayana.
Hamas follows a Palestine terrorist tradition. Remember the PLO. Hussein, the king of Jordan opened the door of his country to Palestinian refugees, and in 1970 almost two-thirds of the Jordanian population was Palestinian, and how they show their gratitude, Yasser Arafat, attempted to dethrone King Hussein, to assassinate him in three occasions and to turn his army against him. He lied to the King, betrayed him.
Remember Black September: The Jordanian-PLO Civil War of 1970 exploded. A bloodbath ensued. Up to 15,000 Palestinian militants and civilians were killed, swaths of Palestinian towns and refugee camps, where the PLO had massed weapons, leveled, the PLO leadership decimated, and between 50,000 and 100,000 people were left homeless. King Hussein with his loyal Bedouin soldiers expelled the PLO from Jordan by early 1971.
