What does the Religion of Peace Teach About... Suicide Attacks (Martyrdom)
Suicide is against Islam. Martyrdom is not.
"Suicide bomber" is a derogatory term invented in the West to try and describe what in Islam is known as a Fedayeen or Shahid - a martyr. The point of the bomber isn't suicide - it is to kill infidels in battle. This is not just permitted by Muhammad, but encouraged with liberal promises of earthy rewards in heaven, including food and sex.
Each week, there are about ten attempted suicide bombings - all by Muslims. The reason why Muslims are prone to self-detonation has nothing to do with genetics, desperation or suicide. It is the ideology that promotes martyrdom by promising paradise to those who lose their lives for Allah.
As the Ayatollah Khomeini once put it, "The purest joy in Islam is to kill and be killed for Allah."
