Pentagon Looks at the Koran
The real story behind Islamic Fascist Palestinian Suicide Bombers

A recent Pentagon briefing paper titled, "Motivations of Muslim Suicide Bombers," points to the Koran as the source of the motivation of Islamist bombers, according to an article today in This runs quite contrary to the usual U.S. government approach, which insists on seeing suicide terrorists as heretics who follow a perverted form of Islam. A White House report released just this month, for example, the National Strategy for Combating Terrorism," asserts that "The terrorists distort the idea of jihad into a call for violence and murder against those they regard as apostates or unbelievers."

The Pentagon study suggests that intelligence analysts think otherwise, concluding not just that Muslim suicide bombers are usually students of the Koran motivated by its commands, but that they acting, by their lights, rationally. Here is a key passage from the account:

In Islam, it is not how one lives one's life that guarantees spiritual salvation, but how one dies, according to the briefings. There are great advantages to becoming a martyr. Dying while fighting the infidels in the cause of Allah reserves a special place and honor in Paradise. And it earns special favor with Allah. "Suicide in defense of Islam is permitted, and the Islamic suicide bomber is, in the main, a rational actor," concludes a recent Pentagon briefing paper titled, "Motivations of Muslim Suicide Bombers."

"His actions provide a win-win scenario for himself, his family, his faith and his God," the document explains. "The bomber secures salvation and the pleasures of Paradise. He earns a degree of financial security and a place for his family in Paradise. He defends his faith and takes his place in a long line of martyrs to be memorialized as a valorous fighter. And finally, because of the manner of his death, he is assured that he will find favor with Allah," the briefing adds. "Against these considerations, the selfless sacrifice by the individual Muslim to destroy Islam's enemies becomes a suitable, feasible and acceptable course of action."

The briefing – produced by a little-known Pentagon intelligence unit called the Counterintelligence Field Activity, or CIFA – cites a number of passages from the Quran dealing with jihad, or "holy" warfare, martyrdom and Paradise, where "beautiful mansions" and "maidens" await martyr heroes. In preparation for attacks, suicide terrorists typically recite passages from six surahs, or chapters, of the Quran: Baqura (Surah 2), Al Imran (3), Anfal (8), Tawba (9), Rahman (55) and Asr (103).

CIFA staffs hundreds of investigators and analysts to help coordinate Pentagon security efforts at U.S. military installations at home and abroad.

Comment: There is nothing new here (see David Bukay, The Religious Foundations of Suicide Bombings, Middle East Quarterly, Fall 2006 for a good, in-depth analysis) but that a government agency articulates this understanding amounts to a breakthrough. (September 27, 2006)

Palestinian Cleric Calls for Peace (Quickly Gunned Down)...

Unidentified gunmen shot dead a Muslim cleric after he delivered a sermon in the Gaza Strip on Friday calling for an end to fierce internal fighting between Hamas and Fatah, hospital officials and local residents said.

According to Reuters, the cleric, Sheikh Adel Nassar, who was in a car when the gunmen opened fire, was not affiliated to any faction. No group claimed responsibility for the shooting, which was reported after prayers at a mosque in the Maghazi refugee camp.

The cleric's shooting in central Gaza came hours after Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas said he and President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah had agreed to keep gunmen off Gaza's streets after clashes in which eight were killed.

Brushing aside Haniyeh's call for calm, Fatah issued a statement in Gaza: "Blood for blood and aggression for aggression ... and all the sons of the movement should retaliate to each aggression openly."

Additionally, members of Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades threatened to assassinate Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar and Interior Minister Saeed Seyam of Hamas.

Notice he wasn’t asking for peace with Israel but between Hamas and Fatah and that is enough to kill a holy man for.

They will never build a state. Other nations had their civil wars on their way to a real government. But people raised with such violence in the core of their beings likely will never have a chance at peaceful relations with anyone. And with the way they toss passed agreements aside without a second thought who could ever trust them.

Just as their behavior in Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, and Jordan has shown, the Palestinian people have no desire for living peacefully.

I see you are still the same piece of shit or just a miscarriage your mother flushed down the stool and survived. Zionists like you need to burn in hell which is what is going to happen. You are one stupid ass. I am surprised you haven't committed suicide yet. Oh I forgot you ain't got the nerve to. Just about all you can do is talk shit. Right dumbass. Get it dumbass. Or do I need to spell it out for you and the whore who had you.

Anonymouse you are as creative and imaginative as ever. It’s also interesting that you have degenerated to the level of a foul mouthed spoiled little child who can’t express themself any better than swearing and ranting like an ignorant little savage with no education.

Are you ready to give up the addresses to your blogs of truth yet or are you going to continue hiding like a coward?

Doe's the truth hurt. or is it you can dish it out but can't take the same back. you are just a piece of afterbirth. To bad you can't handle it bitch.

Anonymouse the only people truth hurts is fools like you who base so much of their belief system on a pack of lies. Your low IQ is obviously the by product of many generations of inbreeding. One can only wonder how many generations of your family history includes brothers marrying each others daughters and cousins sisters and that sort of messed up thing that only happens in the Muslim world. That’s some culture you have there.

It seems the only one upset by the truth is you when Av points out the violent history of your “Palestinian” brethren.

So what’s up with the addresses coward? Can’t you defend your so called truth?

Here is an interesting question I came across on another blog.

The Palestinians have had opportunities in the past to receive land's lost during the 67 war they have rejected this through violence. Israel still would like to see a two state solution. But first would like to see an end to terrorism and kassams as well as recognition of the state of Israel. Is that much to ask for. Why have the Palestinians done nothing to further their cause, advance their national interest.

Yes Ibby, we all know about the lies you are telling.

Hi anonymouse, I’m just wondering do you have any evidence that Av is liar? Since you both appear to live in the U.S.A. he could probably sue you for liable or slander for such accusations if you don’t have any evidence to prove what you are accusing him of to be true. Or do you think that just since you accuse him of such a thing that makes it true?

Hell everybody know that Ibby is a born liar. If you can't tell, then you have been brainwashed too. Amongst the Jewish crowd that I hang with, he has become a big joke to them. He should try a new line of work, such as being Olmert's or Bush's spokesperson. The truth is I don't think he even knows what he is saying. He is just another mental case.

Ha'aretz reports today on the rise of Zionist BedWetters backing off their committment to die for the noble cause of Apartheid and Sorcerery. You've really got to hand it to these guys. Like FAKE ZIONIST and Mickey the JOOish Nazi, these Zionist zealots adore Zionism right up to the point where they must act rather than talk.

I expect that in the crowd you hang with it is you that it is the big joke you are just too brain dead to notice it.

Just like with your make believe blogs of truth you also have no factual information to back up your slander with. Guess what I’m not surprised.

I bet the whore who had you is real proud of her little miscariage. What about the whore you hang with, I hope you didn't have any kids. Can't handle what you say to others can you. I bet you fuck all the little girls or pimp for them.

Why would I do something like that to little girls? Do you think I am Mohammad the prophet of Islam? I wouldn't have relations with a 9 year old then pimp her out like he did. Only a pervert and Mohammedean would consider such a thing. Why don’t you go have sex with your sister then kill her to save her honour? I'll bet the whore who had you is ever so proud of you.

You really have issues with people pointing out your inadequacies don't you. So what about those blogs of truth? What about the proof Av is a liar? You have been proven to be a liar and an idiot and all you can do is keep proving that is the only truth you are aware of. Good for you!!!

Thank you for the spirited defense. Anony's comments explain why they want to monitor teenagers using library computors.

It would appear your secret admirer had her library card taken away.

Is that why they won't let you use a Library computer? I bet they get tired of you inticing little boys and little girls. You must enjoy talking to your self and imaginary friends.
