Please pardon me if I seem a little heretical and crass.
According to apocrapha the way to stop suicide bombings is by dunking the deceased bomber’s head in pigs blood and letting the relevant potential bombers know about it. According to Sharia, that means the bomber could never enter heaven as a martyr. Wouldn't that stop Islamic suicide bombings in a week?
The most logical reason this approach is not used is fear of raising an Islamic international furor. I think this "furor" argument is flawed. We already had an Islamic international furor over a few cartoons and we all survived it.
The Islamic world can’t get any more aroused and hostile than it is already. If we can stop suicide bombings, we should seriously consider it.
Every Muslim I have ever talked to (we’re talking American and Israeli Muslims) believes every bit of paranoid nonsense that is circulating. There is nearly universal Muslim belief that Arabs did not fly planes into the Twin Towers, that Jews were warned to get out, that the CIA runs every malicious operation in the Middle East and that torture is common at American run military prisons. So what new malice or liable could be added to that litany that would be worse? Nothing.
Let’s give serious thought to using pigs blood if it will stop human bloodshed. Just doing it once and having a public trial for the poor scape goat who did it will send the right message and the Arab world will believe it is a common American practice for decades.
