I must admit that these stories are funny

Reader comment on item: Stupid Terrorists

Submitted by Maggie (Australia), Oct 5, 2005 at 06:07

In light of the news out of Bali, I must say that these stories have special appeal. They help to ease the burden that comes when terror strikes so close to home.

I think that the real gem happens to be the story about the terrorists in Israel who got their just reward when the bombs went off and they alone were killed.

There is no honour in allowing oneself to be used for target practice, believing that causing the death of self and others will bring about an eternal reward.

Even though I am loathe to use such language, I certainly think that it is the devil who is the one who leads people astray by convincing them that they will receive a heavenly reward from such stupidity and foolishness.
