IDF troops raided a West Bank village near Jenin early Tuesday and arrested the father of a suicide bomber who killed nine people and wounded near 70 others in a terror attack at the entrance to a fast food stand in southern Tel Aviv.

The family of the bomber, Samer Hammad, had emptied the home of all furniture overnight for fear the army would demolish the building, as it often does to the homes of attackers, witnesses said. According to reports however, the army was not immediately preparing to destroy the building.


The mother gives a different version:

His mother Samya said from the family home near the West Bank town of Jenin, that she had no idea about her son's intentions.

"I thought that he had gone to work in Jenin before I was told on the phone that he had carried out this attack in Tel Aviv," she said.

And Hamas and Fatah wants Abbas to apologize - for condemning Monday's deadly suicide bombing in Tel Aviv


... Quote:



"We ask President Abbas to apologize to the entire Palestinian people because of the offense he committed," the groups said in a joint statement by a coalition of militants read by a masked gunman at an open-air news conference in Gaza.


"Abu Mazen [Abbas] should have condemned the killings of our people and fighters rather than condemning Palestinian acts of self-defense," the statement said, issued in the name of three Fatah-linked groups and the Popular Resistance Committees, an umbrella group of Palestinian militants.

A senior minister in the Hamas-led government, alluding to the Tel Aviv suicide bombing, upheld the position Tuesday, saying that Palestinians had the right to defend themselves against Israel in any way possible.

And an Egyptian state-controlled newspaper praised Monday's suicide attack, calling it an act of sacrifice and martyrdom.

... Quote:


Associated Press

"It is not required of the Palestinian people that they raise their hands in surrender, accept the daily Israeli attacks and watch waves of settlers occupy their land and build settlements," Wrote Al Gomhuria in an editorial of its Tuesday edition.



"It is not required of the Palestinian people that they clap Israel and its allies while they mobilize the whole world to besiege the heroic (Palestinian) people ... Because they have chosen Hamas," The editorial said, referring to the United States and European Union's cutting off funds to the Palestinian Authority because its Hamas government refuses to renounce violence. "For all that, the sacrificial and martyrdom attack occurred in the heart of Tel Aviv, and there will be more later," The daily warned. In the Islamic faith, a martyr goes to heaven.

They still consider these people as martyr's! :o

Bad enough the Palestininans claim the suicide bomber as a martyr but now the Egyptians and the rest of the Arabs also see him as a martyr !!

What did this so-called "martyr" save? A few falafel's from being eaten !
All it takes to be a heroic martyr in Palestine is to blow up a falafel stand, why didnt Gandhi think of that !? :(

28 persons are still in the hospital - among them also Daniel and Tuly Wultz, father and his 16 year old son from Weston, Florida; the family had flown to Jerusalem to spend Passover with the family's 95-year-old grandfather.

While Tuly is recovering from a broken leg, Dany is was severely wounded in the Tel Aviv suicide bombing, he already had two two surgeries and lost a kidney and spleen.

During Shabbat he had to undergo a third surgery.

Daniel Wultz, a high school sophomore, who was passionate about basketball and had spent many hours at a Weston YMCA playing competitively, had to have his leg amputated from the knee down as an infection spread up the limb.
