Hohenwald News: How to Recruit a Suicide Bomber

In the Daily Mirror today, a young Muslim man describes how he was subject to a potential recruitment to be a suicide bomber. He was devout and respectful of the imam, and he had just lost his father so he was grieving. And he was young, fourteen years old, and two older men approached him.

They told him that he would never amount to anything, and that he could see his father again real soon, and they told him of the supposed 72 virgins that await an Islamic martyr (way to sway a teenage boy, right?), and they showed him harsh executions by Russians of Chechnyans.

But he considered his father, and could not see this pious man agreeing, and so walked away.

Wolves in sheep's clothing, perhaps? Ravening wolves. And remember, the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking lives to destroy.

Note that these older, bearded men did not volunteer themselves, but sought a young impressionable sucker. I'd like to make suicide bombers of them, tie them to an American bomb, and drop it on the mosque they represent.
