Israeli security officials admitted they were mistaken when they said a Jewish woman had allegedly helped a suicide bomber. Last week, the officials said they had arrested Marina Pinsky, an Israeli Jew, and her Palestinian husband, Ibrahim Sarahna, for allegedly aiding the terrorist who carried out a suicide bombing May 22 in Rishon le-Zion. On Saturday, however, the officials said the woman arrested was Irena Polichak, a non-Jew who arrived in Israel several years ago and worked as a prostitute.
