    in the too weird for words category:

    Robbers Die Trying to Hold-Up Suicide Bomber

    A Hamas suicide bomber blew up two armed Palestinians who tried to rob him at gun point in the Gaza Strip.

    Hamas claimed the “stickup men” worked for Israeli intelligence, while Palestinian security forces said the two were ordinary thieves.

    Rather than give up his explosives, the bomber detonated them, killing himself and the two robbers near the border fence between Gaza and Israel.

    (I figured this fit best under the terrorism section, no?)

    I used to think of Hamas & Hezbollah as terrorist groups, but I was wrong. After Howard dean informed us that Hamas members were "soldiers"[i.e. legitimate], and Kerry only went as far as saying Hamas & Hezbollah were "sort of" terrorist groups, I now believe these Hamas fellas are just some good guys who are misunderstood.
