Melanie, there is an old chinese proverb that goes something like this ! If you tell a person they are something long enough, and often enough, then they too will believe whatever it has been, that you have been telling them they are !!! Put yourself in the shoes of teenage muslim boys, who has been told from day one they are destined for martydom, and their reward will be 72 virgins once they reach heaven ! What might you do, you can't answer that ? First because your not a male, I wonder though what to the teenage girls get when they strap a bomb around their virgin waists and blow up innocent people !! and secondly you where not brought up in a nightmarish society where insane religious fanatics rule the roost ......
