Chapter 2: Prisoners
It is strictly prohibited to exchange prisoners for money. Killing can only be decided by the Imam or his deputy. Noone else has the right to do so.
If a military infidel is captured, any decision to kill, conditionally release or exchange such a prisoner can only be made by the Imam or his deputy.
Chapter 7: On the Mujahideen
Suicide attacks should be at high value and important targets because a brave son of Islam should not be used for low value and useless targets. In suicide attacks the killing of innocent people and damage to their property should be minimized.

I know you were being sarcastic, but it has nothing to do with emotions. The rules are for the most part practicality - helping to ward off being hated by the non-involved citizens.
On another site I read about why boys without beards aren't allowed anymore to sleep with the other men -- traditional Pashtun culture, as with most Muslim peoples, had extreme prohibitions against pre-marital sex with women. Young boys were the traditional and subtly accepted substitute.
