    A martyr is a martyr. They glorify death. Drugging boy children up, showing them sexual movies, telling them that they will get 72 virgins if they self-ignite themselves around the victims they choose.

    Yes. Of course they use children for suicide missions. They have done for years!

    Two Pakistani mothers were overheard chatting over a pint of goat's milk in a cafe.
    The older of the mothers pulls her bag out and starts flipping through pictures
    and they start reminiscing.

    "This is my oldest son Mohammed. He's 24 years old now"
    "Yes, I remember him as a baby" says the other mother cheerfully.
    "He's a martyr now though" mum confides.
    "Oh so sad dear" says the other.
    "And this is my second son Kalid. He's 21"
    "Oh, I remember him," says the other happily, "he had such curly hair when he was born".
    "He's a martyr too " says mum quietly.
    "Oh gracious me ...." says the other.
    "And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He's 18", she whispers.
    "Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, "I remember when he first started school".
    "He's a martyr also," says mum, with tears in her eyes.
    After a pause and a deep sigh, the second muslim mother looks wistfully at
    the photographs and says... "They blow up so fast, don't they?"

    It is common to use children in situations like this. It is common in non-Muslim country's to. Africa is a good example and to a degree, here in America among street gangs and the white power movement. Young minds are easy to mold.

    But sadly, they make excellent cannon fodder.

    There's a difference between using them and blowing them up don't you think? You say 'to a degree', but that confuses the degree.

    It's common to use. It's not so common to have them kill themselves and innocents by self ignition is it?

    Or is that just degree?

    In some places yes, it is quit common. As to the remark about street gangs here in the us, to a degree, it happens here. The older gang members recruit the young kids from broken homes, give them a sense of family and belonging and then send them out to peddle drugs and kill the gang members. they throw there lives away for there gangs and commit murder in it name. Its the same with the armed gangs in Africa, as well as Palestine and the middle east. And yes, it is very common for the gang members to kill innocents. It happens all the time. Murder is murder be it by gun,knife or bomb.

    I agree HG.

    But by degree connects the two. I don't see the connection between killing their own gang members which is part and parcel of the gang and peddling drugs which is the finances of the gang.

    And to tie that to a political and militarily extremist ideology that uses children to slaughter other people for the ideological purpose.

    Murder of a gang member(s) who is/are also involved in the crime is far different than the murder of a group of innocents by terrorists.

    I see the connection you are making. I disagree with the strength of the attachment. By degree. :)
