What is the difference between murder and Muslim suicide bombing? What is the difference if the suicide bombing results in many deaths of innocent victims, even other Muslims? I am confused by the differences between Mohamedism and Christianity. God says, "Thou shall not kill". He does not say , "Go out and kill the Infidels, but do not kill believers. He condemns "the act of taking the life of oneself as well as others. Some Christians will let themselves be killed rather than offer resistance which might result in death. How is this different from suicide bombing? Isn't this inaction eqally appaling as no defense could result in complete annialation of Christianity and allow the Devil complete victory?
