Israeli police are set to distribute a pamphlet that explains how to spot a suicide-bomber:
In the pamphlet, the police listed several basic external and behavioral signs that should raise public suspicions:
  • Unseasonable dress;
  • Youth who are attempting to blend into crowds, when they do not seem to belong;
  • Conspicuous, bulky dress;
  • Repeated and nervous handling of parts of clothing;
  • Profuse sweating, slow-paced walking while focusing on sides;
  • Attempts to maintain distance from security personnel, and hesitant, nervous muttering.

It's strange that Palestinian suicide-bombers should bear such a startling resemblance to homeless people and escaped mental patients.
