Latest Terrorist bombing in Israel

From Little Green Footballs: bq. The �spiritual leader� of Hamas, a wheelchair-bound locus of festering evil named Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, personally gave his blessing to female suicide bomber Reem al-Rayashi: To look at a picture of this person, one is reminded of Sauruman. CNN did a brief article on Hamas in 2002 - his picture is at the top. Evil evil people to be fostering that sort of brainwashing of their citizens -- all for personal jollies and material gain (these people preach poverty but they themselves are rich having skimmed off all sorts of "relief" and "aid" money) Anyway, the LGF entry points to an article in The Jerusalem Post (free registration required) as follows: bq. According to Channel 2, Reem Salah al-Rayashi, 21, the mother of two small children, approached Hamas several times with the request to be a suicide bomber. bq. "She practically begged," an Arab affairs reporter told Channel 2. bq. The Hamas leadership repeatedly spurned her requests, until Yassin himself intervened. Hamas has previously resisted the use of female suicide bombings on ideological grounds. However, when Hamas operatives brought a plan to bomb the Erez crossing into the joint Israeli-Palestinian industrial zone, the Hamas leadership put ideology aside and adopted the plan most likely to succeed. bq. Sheikh Yassin then personally gave his blessing for al-Rayashi to be used as a bomber, and issued a decree (a few hours after Wednesday's attack) to the effect that "Jihad was the duty of men and women." bq. "For the first time, Hamas used a female fighter and not a male fighter," Yassin told reporters. "It is a new development in resistance against the enemy.... Resistance will escalate against this enemy until they leave our land and homeland." It is interesting that if you look into the 'training' used by these terrorists, you will see a lot of similarities to cult behaviors - separating the inductee from their friends, teach them a new language and pattern of thought, tell them continually that their family and friends are trying to hurt them... Checking the website of a noted Cult expert (Rick Ross), we see that indeed, he has an entire page dedicated to various Islamic Fundamental groups and techniques... The next ten years will be rough for everyone involved but if we keep our resolve to combat the terror, if we keep our compassion and realize that these people have been lied to by corrupt leaders, everybody will win.
