I'LL EVEN HARA-KIRI IF YOU

I’LL EVEN HARA-KIRI IF YOU SHOW ME HOW: Check out this classic from James Taranto in the Journal’s Best of the Web Today:

[Iraqi Major] Saleh Abdullah Mahdi Al Jaburi…says: “We were desperate when Baghdad fell so quickly. If we were not Muslims we would have done like the Japanese and committed suicide [but] . . . our religion forbids it.” If only the Fedayeen, the Palestinians and al Qaeda followed the same religion.

Exactly.
