Palestinian students visit a re-enactment of the Aug. 19 Sbarro pizza restaurant suicide bombing in Jerusalem, replete with body parts and pizza slices strewn around the room, during the opening of an exhibition at Al Najah University in the West Bank town of Nablus, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2001. The exhibit on the suicide bombing, which killed 15 Israelis and the bomber, is part of an exhibition to mark the passing of a year since renewed violence broke out between Israelis and the Palestinians.

The Palestinian Museum - at Al-Najah University in Shechem
For the Jews, there are museums to Remember the atrocities done to them. Imagine museums built by Nazis to recall the mass murders they had committed. No: they preferred to keep such things secret or at least as secret as was possible. But not so the Palestinians. Here, proud of killing innocent civilians, and a reminder to their youth and the average Palestinian, a museum to glorify brutality!
"So - what do "regular" Palestinians think?" - this is a usual question asked Israelis who try to explain the terror in our country. The question is already expecting a certain answer: something like, 'Well, not all Palestinains support suicide bombers' or 'The simple people want peace', or 'Religious leaders don't agree'...
We here at GAMLA, like the rest of Israel, saw these pictures in our newspapers this morning. We feel that they answer for themselves.
In order to give you the story "straight from the horses mouth" - we are publishing these pictures along with the original captions from AP - written by their Palestinian journalist, of course.
