Good news from those subhumans known as Palestinians - they have decided that using young men, young women, and children as suicide bombers is not enough...so, they are now using grandmothers as their weapons of choice.
Grandmother in first Hamas suicide attack in two years
JABALIYA, Gaza Strip (AFP) - A Palestinian grandmother blew herself up in the Gaza Strip, lightly wounding three Israeli soldiers, in the first suicide attack claimed by Hamas in almost two years.
The mother of nine and grandmother of 41 became the oldest Palestinian suicide bomber at the age of 57, selecting as her target troops operating near her northern Gaza home in Jabaliya, seeking to curb near-daily rocket attacks on Israel.
"Troops saw a woman approaching them in a suspicious manner and identified her carrying an explosive device," an army spokeswoman said.
"They then threw a stun grenade in her direction but she managed to blow herself up," she added, adding that three soldiers were lightly hurt.
Within minutes the armed wing of the Hamas claimed the bombing. This was the Islamist group's first suicide attack since January 2005, when a bomber wounded seven Israeli soldiers in Gaza.
"The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades claims the martyr operation carried out by Fatima Omar Mahmud al-Najar, aged 57, in the middle of a group of Zionist soldiers," an online statement said.
You have to hand it to the Palestinians - just when you think they have reached a low that could not go any lower, they do something like this. After all, they have used mules as bombers - why not grandmothers.
Just for reference, check out this photo of the (former) grandmother, now sitting in hell with her smelly pantyhose:
To be honest, if we looked this bad at 57, we would blow ourselves up, too.
