PA: Palestinian authority foils suicide attack

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2008/01/pa-palestinian-authority-foils-suicide.html

So where is the tape?? Still, the fact that such an announcement could be made shows tremendous progress from the days when it was obligatory to praise suicide bombers as "martyrs."

RAMALLAH, West Bank: Palestinian security forces in the West Bank recently arrested a Hamas cell that planned a suicide attack in Israel, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said Monday. A videotape showing a suicide bomber detailing his intentions to blow up an Israeli target was also seized, Malki said at a news conference.
 
The announcement came a week before U.S. President George W. Bush visits the region to promote peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. The Palestinians are eager to prove they are cracking down on militants which is a central demand of the negotiations.
 
"We confiscated huge amounts of mercury in Nablus," Malki told reporters. "This mercury is used for explosives and especially in preparing detonators," he said.
 
Malki refused to elaborate or answer reporters' questions about the incident. He did not show the videotape to reporters or release the name of the alleged bomber. The Israeli military said it had no knowledge of the case.
 
Hamas has carried out dozens of suicide bombings that killed hundreds of Israelis, though the militant Islamic group hasn't successfully carried out a bombing in Israel in the past two years.
 
Hamas militants control the Gaza Strip and are bitter rivals of the West Bank government of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
