in response to reader comment: beheading under islam

For only the 2nd time in all of recorded history, we are seeing repeated suicide attacks. Please research Japanese culture prior to and during World War II and see if you find as many similarities as I do, particularly regarding honor. Naturally, differences are present. No two people or cultures are the same.

One big difference: At least in Japan, they had to kill themselves when they were dishonored. These guys kill you. Much better.
