Interesting definition of Zionist: anybody who happens to be in the way when a martyrdom seeker blows up.
A member of Palestinian resistance movement Islamic Jihad carried out a martyrdom seeking operation at a sandwich stand in Tel Aviv on Thursday, wounding at least 22 Zionists.
The Palestinian martyr targeted a small, open-air sandwich stand on a busy pedestrian mall near Tel Aviv's old central bus station. He wore a backpack and pretended to be blind before detonating his explosives, according to a witness.
A spokesman for the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing [Never know when the Guardian is going to pick up your story--YG.] of the Islamic Jihad, named the martyr bomber as 22-year-old Sami Abd al-Hafiz Antar from the West Bank town of Nablus.
The blast tore down the ceiling of the restaurant.
Senior Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batsh said he could neither confirm nor deny his group was behind it.
"Regardless of who carried out the attack, it was a natural response against the continued Israeli assassination of fighters and killing of innocents," he said.
