Warrior Martyrdom - Celebrations of Death for the Wrong Reasons

Reader comment on item: Give War a Chance
in response to reader comment: Celebrating the Martyr's Complex

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 10, 2021 at 12:57

A commentary regarding the innocent lives lost for the cause of prideful ambitions; the loss of children as an inheritance will destroy any society that does not cherish the future of peace that embraces hope for children. What does that say about another commentary in which Arab posterity is being sacrificed for that same selfish desire of the destruction claimed by Hamas and the Iranian Islamic Regime's quest for power. How many have paid and how many more will be offered up before this insanity is stopped?
It is written: death is inevitable; but to what reward if peace is not the result? Who is to be made responsible for the destruction of the youth of any society if the warrior cannot save his children?
What does this Islamic sense of offering up the children make if no posterity remains to enjoy the peace?
