Three women, all members of Hamas, have been arrested for planning a suicide attack targetting Fatah policemen. Women. Suicide bombers. Hamas members. We already knew there were female suicide bombers in Gaza and before. There were elderly suicide bombers in Gaza as well. There have even been Palestinian child suicide bombers, and there are children doing dangerous work for Hamas. And yet, people always seem to assume that all the women and children and the elderly and even Hamas policemen, are innocent of any involvement in terror. Most likely because the media generally makes it seem like they are. So I doubt there's any chance of the British press reporting this.
