If only this were the norm, rather than the exception.
A Palestinian couple last month discovered that their teenage son was planning to carry out a terrorist attack against Israeli soldiers, and rather than let him become a "martyr," they turned him in.
Israel's Tazpit News Agency reported that the parents became concerned after finding a "farewell" note written by their son, along with his cellphone.
They immediately contacted the Israeli army, which managed to find the boy near a military installation in Samaria. He was carrying a large knife.
Incessant propaganda in Palestinian schools and in the regime-controlled media seeks to encourage young Arabs to carry out spontaneous "lone-wolf" attacks against Israelis.
