    Seems pretty interesting. If the hypothesis holds water it'd be interesting to see if the more conservative Muslim societies (like Saudi Arabia) generate more recruits the more liberals ones (like Iran).

    This does not surprise me. Much anger in the Muslim world is present for just this reason. I can see why. Just look at the restrictions that they must live under.

    Repeated suicide attack is being seen today for only the 2nd time in history. I believe that today's suicide attackers are similar (NOT the same) to those that Japan produced in the 1940's. Some survived and have their stories documented in "Blossoms in the wind". By similiar, I am not speaking about personalities. I refer to the degree of dedication to cause and the culture of 'death before dishonor'. Or, 'The greatest thing that he could hope for was to die for the emperor'.
