The abject poverty of the UK homicide bombers of Mike's Place in tel Aviv.

Reader comment on item: God and Mammon

I am sure that abject poverty MUST be the cause. One of the Homicide Bombers that attacked Mikes Place in tel Aviv came from such a poor family that they even had to send him to a British Public School! This, surely, shows that abject poverty causes the starvelings to blow themselves up in the name of world poverty! "Free Vodka for the Workers, when the Red Revolution comes along" half remembered words from a student song!
