Ha'aretz brings us the mother of all character misjudgments, regarding Asif Mohammed Hanif, who blew himself up at a bar in Tel Aviv the other day, killing three and wounding dozens of others:
His brother, Taz, was quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying Hanif was not the kind of person to carry out a suicide bombing. "Anyone who knew him would tell you. He was just a big teddy bear," he said.
To be honest, I never thought of my own brother as particularly cuddly, but now I'm wondering if maybe that's a good thing.
