Hamas Member Reveals Details of Attacks

From Hamas Member Reveals Details of Attacks:

Bluntly titled "The Engineers of Death," an 80-page booklet by Hamas militant Mohammed Irman offers a remarkable window into the evolution of Hamas strategy as the group tried to demoralize Israel, derail regional peace talks, and establish itself as the dominant Palestinian political movement. The glossy red booklet with gruesome images of suicide bombings on the cover is being sold for $2 on the streets of Ramallah. On July 31, 2002, Irman's group set off a bomb in Hebrew University's Frank Sinatra cafeteria, killing nine people, including five Americans. The group had tried to bomb the cafeteria three days earlier, but the cell phone failed to set off the bomb and the cell member who had sneaked the bomb into the student center brought it back to be repaired.
