I'd rather have one loose adultress than 20 stuck-up virgins any day.

Note to potential suicide bombers. There was a typo. As it turns out, you don't "get" 72 virgins, you become one of them.

JohnAnnArbor: DrewCurtisJr: JohnAnnArbor: Back when Israel was getting hit every other day (pre-wall), there were a few bombers that were incompetent.

I remember reading interviews with failed suicide bombers who were caught and in Israeli prisons. Not surprisingly most of them weren't that bright. I was surprised that a good number of them weren't particularly religious, at least to the extent you would think of a radical fanatic.

One I read about was truly sad. She was scarred from a terrible burn, so she was going to an Israeli hospital for free treatments (those terrible Jews!); she had been to this hospital several times before. She was stopped at the border for a search, hit the button (they're told to do that if caught to at least get SOMEONE dead), nothing happened. She later told her interviewers that she had intended to blow herself up near the neonatal ward, if possible. Then she wondered how mad the Israelis would be with her. (A bit, though she still gets free medical care.) She told about what she had been promised in paradise: to be the lead of the 72 whores for one of the male suicide bombers. Truly sick.

There's also the (in)famous story of a 13 or 15-year old Palestinian boy who approached an Israeli checkpoint wearing a vest which failed to detonate. Turns out the kid was high-functioning, but very learning-disabled (and before the snark, it was IIRC a Hamas-backed group who recruited him and built the bomb).

The kid wasn't even aware that his vest was a weapon that would kill him and others.

The combination of poverty, illiteracy, religious extremism (even if the people aren't, TPTB are, and they have influence) and having a convenient scapegoat (accurate or not) is a dangerous one.

Yeah really. What religion offers MILFs in heaven?

Asatru, no way chicks serving mead in a viking hall are chaste.

Or, a virgin that has been taught tricks by an adultress.

Then again...

It's not funny!

He had a "premature detonation".

They don't have a very good record, but SBU's football games are a blast!

The important part of the headline is "suicide bomber"

/that part worked like a charm
