The Penny Drops at The Australian

Whatever happened to the 72 virgins* and the terrorist death cults*?

"University of Toronto sociologist Robert Brym... carefully studied all 138 suicide bombings between September 2000 and mid-July 2005. He concluded that, in the vast majority of cases, the suicide bombers themselves, whatever their ideological predispositions, or the groups that claimed responsibility, had lost a friend or close relative to Israeli fire. They acted, he wrote, 'out of revenge'." (Sin-binned for blowing the whistle, John Lyons, The Australian, 17/4/10)
