Relatives of 23-year-old Lotfi Abu Saada said they were perplexed Monday that the simple farmhand strapped on a suicide bomb belt and blew himself up outside a mall in Netanya, killing himself and five Israelis. "Those who sent him have fooled him," said Abu Saada's mother, Amina, weeping. "My son is a poor soul. He doesn't know anything about this, he was never jailed and he never participated in demonstrations." His father, Amin, a farmer was in a state of shock, laughing at times and crying at others. "I am not convinced, I don't believe this. My son can't even get to the city alone, how can he get to Netanya? He doesn't read or write," he said.
