A Palestinian terrorist who was released in last week’s prisoner-exchange agreement with Hamas boasted over the weekend that “it used to cost me only NIS 3 to kill a Jew.”

Khaled Juaidi, a member of Islamic Jihad who spent 25 years in prison for murdering three Jews, told the Hamas-affiliated newspaper Falasteen Al-An: “I used to buy a knife or dagger for a NIS 1.5 and then pay another NIS 1.5 to get to the area to carry out the operation.”

Juaidi was convicted of stabbing to death three Jews in different parts of the Gaza Strip in 1986.

His knifing sprees triggered a wave of stabbings of Jews in the Palestinian territories and Israel back then. His supporters refer to him as the man who sparked the “revolution of knives” against Jews.

Juaidi also boasted that it took only one strike to kill each one of his victims.

“If I hadn’t killed them with the first strike, my identity would have been revealed,” he explained.

He praised Hamas for kidnapping IDF soldier Gilad Schalit and called on Palestinians to understand that the “path of resistance” was the only way to secure the release of Palestinian prisoners.
