  • Most suicide bombers are Muslim

    (From an article titled:Ten Politically Incorrect Truths About Human Nature)Most suicide bombers are Muslim Suicide missions are not always religiously motivated, but according to Oxford University sociologist Diego Gambetta, editor of Making Sense of Suicide Missions, when religion is involved, the attackers are always Muslim. Why? The surprising answer is that Muslim suicide bombing has nothing to do with Islam or the Quran (except for two lines). It has a lot to do with sex, or, in this case, the absence of sex.

    In the wake of last week's foiled terrorist plot to blow up 10 U.S. jetliners flying between Britain and the United States, sensible people are reconsidering our government's stubborn opposition to profiling. Among the sensible elsewhere are officials of the British Department for Transport, who are proposing ethnic profiling as a means of more effectively identifying potential terrorists. The predictable chorus of opposition has chimed in on cue. The Muslim Council of Britain has warned the government to think ``very carefully,'' saying that including ``behavioral pattern recognition'' in passenger profiling would lead to discrimination. A spokesman for the council said,...

  • The Rise of the Suicide Bomber-Stopping terror requires seeing jihadists as serial killers

    In both sex and political serial killings, there is a criminal mind at work - one that murders in cold blood and requires body-parts and a terrified public. Serial sex criminals torture and murder strangers, usually, though not always, women. Serial political killers use their own people to torture and murder strangers. And, they send their own women, men and children to do their barbaric and nihilistic dirty work. The phenomenon of serial suicide murders in a political context began in Lebanon in the early 1980s, courtesy of the Shi`ite groups Amal and Hizbullah and the Islamic republic of Iran....

    Converts to Islam are taking over the terrorist operations previously carried out mainly by Muslim-born immigrants and their children. This was dramatically illustrated when a Belgian convert to Islam, Muriel Degauque, 38, blew herself up near Baghdad on Nov. 9 in a suicide attack on U.S. troops, becoming the first Christian-born Western woman to kill herself for Islamist purposes. And of the fourteen people arrested because of connections to Degauque, half were converts to Islam. In neighboring Holland, a just-published government report specifically worries about radicalized converts. Islamist terror organizations particularly prize converts. They know the local culture and blend...

    BAGHDAD — "Please, please," the young Saudi appeals in a whisper, "don't turn me over to the Americans." His face is charred and blistered. His head and arms are enveloped in gauze. Each word seems to beget pain. His haunted eyes dart about, his only noticeable movements. He is here to repent, under the stern guidance of an Iraqi intelligence agent. The setting is an anonymous office in the heavily barricaded Iraqi Interior Ministry. So what does he think now of "Sheik" Osama bin Laden, the interrogator asks? "He kills Muslims," the Saudi murmurs, his lips barely moving. And Abu...

    Prayers were just ending at the al-Baya' mosque in west Baghdad on Friday when the two young men stepped from a minibus taxi and approached the entrance. They wore black, like the hundreds of worshippers gathered inside and outside, but something was wrong.The younger one, no older than 18, tried to pass security guards without being searched while his companion, about 25, walked to the far side of the entrance before heading for the doorway. That was as much warning the Shia mosque had that it was under attack, the latest target of suicide bombers who strike almost daily in...

    A self-styled "suicide bomber" musician who sings in Arabic and performs in a full-length burqa is planning a "terror concert" in Britain. The Russian teenage singer, known only as n.A.T.o, performs with her face covered by a veil in front of screens broadcasting images from al-Jazeera, the Arab television station, interspersed with flashing words such as "al-Qaeda", "Iraq" and "Nasdaq". Her manager, Ivan Shapovalov, who last year launched the controversial lesbian pop duo t.A.T.u, plans to give a concert in Britain in November after successfully organising a similar event in Moscow on September 11.

    Palestinian terrorists tried to recruit a 15-year-old as a suicide bomber, at one point locking him in a dark room, but also luring him with clothes, a cell phone and promises of paradise, his family said Tuesday. The story of ninth-grader Tamer Khweirah, who was extricated by an alert older brother, underscored the growing use of children by militant groups and stoked Palestinian debate over what is permissible in the fight with Israel. Tamer is one of four teens arrested by the Israeli military in the West Bank city of Nablus in the past week on suspicion they were recruited...

    The family of Husam Abdu, 16, of Nablus, who was caught on Wednesday at an IDF checkpoint with an explosive vest strapped to his body, has reacted with fury to reports that he had been dispatched to carry out a suicide attack. His mother, however, said she would not have opposed the decision to send her son on the suicide mission had he been over 18. Many Palestinians expressed shock at the internationally televised footage showing the boy removing the explosive vest at the Huwara checkpoint south of Nablus.

    You know, in my lifetime of excessive TV watching and fairly liberal schooling I must have endured thousands of hours of public service commercials, after-school specials, gitchy-goo lectures, editorials and even songs on how wrong it is to pressure kids into taking drugs, having sex too soon, worrying about their looks and so on. I know I'm not alone. The manufactured new morality that reveres self-esteem and condemns peer pressure above all else is omnipresent in our culture. And since the old morality of absolute notions of right and wrong seems to be on the way out, maybe we should...

    Iraq vows to destroy allied forces by stepping up suicide attacks and claims 4,000 suicide bombers have recently arrived in the country to ''martyr'' themselves by killing U.S., British and Australian troops. In Baghdad, Iraqi Army spokesman Gen. Hazem al-Rawi said the Arabs have volunteered to fight coalition troops. ''Martyrdom operations will continue not only by Iraqis but by thousands of Arabs who came to Baghdad,'' he said. ''The mujahideen who have come to Iraq have come from all Arab countries.

The explosives were discovered after one of the Iraqi boats was run aground during the confrontation. Coalition warships in the region have been on high...

These new strategies have been carefully thought-out. They involve deception and the most vile of intentions. But more evil forms of ambush treachery may be unfolding in just a few days. First we heard reports of Iraqi troops pretending to surrender and then attacking at the last moment. Then we heard reports that Saddam's elite forces were throwing off their uniforms and dressing as civilians. Reportedly, they are hiding in civilian homes waiting...

    AMERICAN troops were told yesterday to prepare for “suicide PoWs” as commanders prepared to cope with tens of thousands of Iraqi defectors. US Marines, likely to be among the first troops to enter Iraqi territory, fear that some prisoners of war will use the suicide tactics of Hamas bombers to cause as many casualties as possible. The Marines have been given warning that suicide PoWs could take advantage of the chaos caused by tens of thousands of genuine Iraqi prisoners giving themselves up to the invading forces. Despite such fears, the Marines have been ordered to treat prisoners as they...
