DEBKAfile reveals that the two British terrorists who killed 3 Israelis at Mike's Place in Tel Aviv lodged five days in small hotel opposite US embassy and the cafe, ostensibly checking out targets. The cafe was apparently chosen because embassy was too well guarded. And guess what? Mofaz revealed to Sunday's cabinet session in Jerusalem that a KORAN found in their hotel room had been used to smuggle explosives for their suicide-bomb-belts, into Israel.

Sorry, but even having studied anthropology for eight years, I still can't appreciate a culture where people slash their own heads in religious fervor, blow themselves up to murder people, and hide explosives in texts they hold sacred.
