The Psychopathology of Everyday Life - Gaza Style

I’m sure this article on the etiology of suicide bombers would tax even the good doctor’s powers of insight:

The bomber’s family and the sponsoring organisation celebrate his martyrdom with festivities, as if it were a wedding. Hundreds of guests congregate at the house to offer congratulations. The hosts serve the juices and sweets that the young man specified in his will. Often, the mother will ululate in joy over the honour that Allah has bestowed upon her family. (ht: Ed Driscoll)
