As dispiccable an act as it is. I admire the fortitude and strength in belief. There is not bravery, no honour, but a willingness to die for your cause. How can I fault that? I believe it myself.
So here we have young men dying for their cause in the ME. I can see where they're coming from. Poverty, famine, war, occupation and so one. Even though I have read some articles that suggest that most of the so called martyrs are actually midclass kids that have been convinced to abstain from sex and self pleasure, ostensably to make it easier to convince them to kill themselves for 72 virgins.
But that's in the ME. What about here at home?
How can some young man from middle class Scarberia, expect me to see him as a martyr if he's been silver spoon fed and raised on Much Music?
What jihad is he fighting? Is it a false glory he's looking for? Or is he brainwashed? Or is he just spoiled brat with a bad influence around him and no clear guidence?
