Palestinian Students Commemorate Suicide Bombing
On September 23, 2001, Palestinian students at Al-Najah University in Nablus opened an exhibition commemorating the year-old uprising against Israel. The exhibit includes a gruesome reenactment of the August 9, 2001, suicide bombing of the Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem where a suicide bomber killed himself and 15 other people. The exhibit's organizers are students who support Hamas, the militant Islamic group that carried out the Jerusalem attack.
In another part of the exhibit, visitors looked through dark windows to see mannequins dressed as suicide bombers. Each had Islam's holy book, the Quran, in one hand, and an automatic rifle in the other.
The exhibit also includes a large rock in front of a mannequin wearing the black hat, black jacket and black trousers typically worn by ultra-Orthodox Jews. A recording from inside the rock calls out: "O believer, there is a Jewish man behind me. Come and kill him."
