Watch Out Warns Taliban

“The same group that was responsible for the Christmas Day plane bomber is training women, who may be “non Arab” in appearance and traveling on Western passports to attack targets in the West, officials warn. British spy chiefs raised the threat state to “severe” in that country this weekend. Said former White House terrorism adviser Richard Clarke, “They have trained women. There are others who are still out there who have been trained and who are clean skins—that means people who we do not have a record of, people who may not look like al Qaeda terrorists, who may not be Arabs, and may not be men.”

I guess when you have nothing to live for but institutionalized slavery, it’s easy to be convinced that your life is worth little.  Of course this is a grossly biased cross cultural judgment. Like I said yesterday, it’s my blog.

As Im sure you imagine, the reasons are complex and many. There is a very informative documentary about the first female Palestinian suicide bomber which sought to determine the reasons for her choice. The reasons while Palestinian in nature (culturally) there are many parallels simply with the female’s place in Muslim society. Not talking about veils and that, but rather how the woman fits into society in marriage, without marriage, and even more-so… after a marriage. Can’t remember the name of it, but the person who created it e
was an Asian female journalist if I recall. Some of the concepts that such females have to face aren’t much different than some that western women faced 100 years ago.

Let’s not forget that the Tamils were famous for using female suicide bombers despite the female having a less subservient roll.
