Nine were killed and at least 40 were injured in the powerful blast that set four nearby cars on fire at 7:15 PM as the Sabbath ended. The bomb was detonated beside a group of mothers standing with their babies in strollers at the entrance to a guesthouse. Arafat's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade took responsibility for the attack. The suicide bomber was from Deheishe refugee camp near Bethlehem.
In another apparent terrorist attack, a 40-year old policeman, Chief Inspector Moshe Dayan, was shot in the head. His body was found next to his motorcycle near the West Bank settlement of Keidar. Arafat's terrorist group in Bethlehem, "The People of Atef Abayat," took responsibility for the attack.

The goat in the past has symbolized bin Laden. The elephants have symbolized the US and Great Britain in the Afghan war. So the goat on the head of the elephants represents the latest attack of the al-Qa'eda in the mountains near Gardez. The al-Qa'eda apparently came down on the heads of the US and Afghan troops today. Today was March 2nd, for divine division, the meaning of the year, 2002. And it was Day 61, for income tax, which is also associated with the lack of sanctification at Ai where Israel was defeated because Achan had taken the spoils which should have been turned over to the state (Joshua 7:20-21).
A small weather elephant was also over northern Florida. Florida has been associated with the Palestinians at Gaza.
