Reader comment on item: The [Suicide] Jihad Menace
in response to reader comment: The "martyr" or shahid is but a delivery vehicle

I do not see indescriminate bomb planters or suicide bombers as martyrs or soldiers to their cause and never will. Where is the honour in taking innocent victims. Crimes that affect large numbers of people with differing faiths and cultures are commited by governments not civillians.

There is no satisfaction, honour or pride to be gained for any person no matter their colour or creed, in killing innocent men, women or children.
