The Myth of the Suicide Bomber
Why "Suicide Bombing" Must be a Myth and What Purposes it Really Serves
After reading The Logic of Suicide Terrorism--It’s the Occupation, Not the Fundamentalism by Robert Pape, the main idea that we come away with is that suicide bombers are real, very real indeed. Though we were promised a revelation of the logic, these questions remain:
If the purpose of a suicide-terrorist attack is not to die, but to kill and to inflict the maximum number of casualties on the target society, why do they die?
If the purpose of the suicide bomber is to end the occupation of his country, why is the suicide tactic not as old as war and territorial occupation itself?
If the purpose of the suicide bomber is to end the occupation of his country and to inflict the maximum number of casualties on the target society why are the targets so disparate and scattered, without a clear relation to the occupation?
Why are suicide bombings publicized before any proof is brought by investigation?

According to Islam:
* It is forbidden to commit suicide, for any reason.
* Terrorism and all such acts of are forbidden.
* It is forbidden to target and kill/murder innocents.
* Each of the above stand in stark contradiction to the teachings of Islam and Muhammad.
