Palestinians celebrate in front of the family house of Palestinian suicide bomber Hassan Abu Zeid, 20, in the West Bank town of Qabatiah October 26, 2005. A Palestinian suicide bomber killed five people in a crowded market in an Israeli coastal city on Wednesday in the first such attack since Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip last month.
It is astonishing that Palestinian Arabs think that the suicide of one of their young men in the cause of randomly killing noncombatant Jews amounts to a victory worth celebrating.
UPDATE: Power Line deconstructs the same picture, includes coverage of the victims, and covers Iran's demand yesterday that Israel be "wiped off the map." Power Line posted a photo of Iran's president Ahmadinejad in front of a banner that advertises the web site for the "World without Zionism" conference (www.zionot.ir). Unfortunately for those of us who want to read racist trash first thing in the morning, the English-language links on the site are dead.
