From Russia With Love?

Apparently Israel has been so successful at preventing Palestinian suicide bombers that Hamas operatives have had to try and lose their virginity elsewhere.

Palestinian journalist Ali Waked reports that one young would-be bomber has met the woman of his dreams via a Russian dating website. Following Hamas’s violent takeover of Gaza in mid-June, she was smuggled into Gaza, where the two have wed, shortly after meeting for the first time.
His new wife has converted to Islam, and they were married in a traditional Muslim ceremony.
May their children not grow up to be suicide bombers.
