Wait a minute. I thought suicide attacks were only carried out by desperately poor Palestinians with no weapons or any other recourse. How inconvenient for the apologists for jihad that reality keeps interfering with their romantic notions. From Newindpress, with thanks to Nicolei:
NEW DELHI: The Lashker-e-Taiba, a powerful Pakistan-based terror group active in Jammu and Kashmir, has raised a “full-blown unit for suicide squad operations against Western forces” in Iraq, a media report said on Sunday.
Up to 2,000 men between the ages of 18 and 25 have reportedly signed up for the Lashker’s armed operations in Iraq, the authoritative ‘The Hindu’ reported in a lead story.
Sources close to Lashker’s overall head, Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, were quoted as saying the group hoped to send at least some suicide squad members to Iraq overland through the porous Iran-Pakistan border. …
A majority of volunteers were drawn from the ranks of seminary students at Muridke near Lahore, Jamaat-ud-Dawa’s main centre. Some volunteers were raised from the Binori town seminary in Karachi, run by fundamentalist cleric Mufti Nizamuddin Shamzai until he was assassinated, it said.
Seminary students? All together now: “Don’t they know the Qur’an forbids suicide???”
