Suicide Attack Thwarted in Tel Aviv

by Palestinian security officials?
That's what it says in the Jerusalem Post:
Palestinian sources said Juma'a planned to carry out a suicide attack in Tel Aviv on Monday.

The 15-kilogram bomb Juma'a was to have used in the attack was blown up by Palestinian security officials who found it hidden inside a washing machine in one of the houses in the camp after they were contacted by Juma'as parents.
But then it also said the wannabe human bomb was a hermaphrodite.

Do I believe any of this? Not necessarily.

UPDATE: If you do believe that Palestinian security officials stopped a suicide bomber, then you might also believe that they will hold local elections (the first in eight years). . . by late August.
