 The psychology behind suicide bombings.

  By – Pierre Rehov, documentary filmmaker
 On July 15, MSNBC’s “Connected” program discussed the July 7th London
  One of the guests was Pierre Rehov, a French filmmaker who has filmed six

documentaries on the intifada by going undercover in the Palestinian areas. Pierre’s

upcoming film, “Suicide Killers,” is based on  interviews that he conducted with the

families of suicidebombers and  would-be bombers in an attempt to find out why they do

it. Pierre agreed to a  request for a Q&A interview here about his work on the new

  Q – What inspired you to produce  “Suicide Killers,” your seventh film?
  A – I started working with victims of suicide attacks to make a film
on PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) when I became  fascinated with the

personalities of those who had committed those crimes, as they were described again and

again by their victims.
Especially  the fact that suicide bombers are all smiling one second before they  blow
themselves up.
  Q – Why is this film especially  important?

  A – People don’t understand the devastating culture behind this unbelievable

My film is not politically correct because it addresses the real problem,showing the

real face of Islam. It points the finger against a culture of hatred in which the

uneducatedare brainwashed to a level where their only solution in life becomes to kill

themselves and killothers in the name of a God whose word, as transmitted by other men,

has become their only certitude.
  Q – What insights did you gain from  making this film? What do you
know that other experts do not know?

  A – I came to the conclusion that we are facing a neurosis at thelevel of an entire

civilization. Most neuroses have in common a dramatic event, generally linked to
an unacceptable sexual behavior. In this case, we are talking of kids living all their

lives inpure frustration, with no opportunity to experience sex, love, tenderness or

even understandingfrom the opposite sex. The separation between men and women in Islam

is absolute. So is contempt towardwomen, who are totally dominated by men. This leads

to a situation of pure anxiety, in which normal behavior is not possible. It is no

coincidence that suicide killers are mostly young mendominated subconsciously by an

overwhelming libido that they not only cannot satisfy butare afraid of, as if it is the

work of the devil.
  Since Islam describes heaven as a place where everything on Earth will finally be

allowed, and promises 72 virgins to those frustrated kids, killing others and killing

themselves to reach this redemption becomes their only solution.
  Q – What was it like to interview would-be suicide bombers, their families and

survivors of suicide bombings?

  A – It was a fascinating and a terrifying experience. You are dealing with seemingly

normal people with very nice manners who have their own logic, which to a certain

extent can make sense since they are so convinced that what they say is true. It is

like dealing with pure craziness, like interviewing people in an asylum, since what

they say, is for them, the absolute truth. I hear a mother saying “Thank God, my  son

is dead.” Her son had became a shaheed, a martyr, which for her was a greater source of

pride than if he had became an engineer, a doctor or a winner of the Nobel Prize.

  This system of values works completely backwards since theirinterpretation of Islam
worships death much more than life. You are facing people whose only dream, only
achievement goal is to fulfill what they believe to be their destiny, namely to be a

Shaheed or the family of a shaheed.
 They don’t see the innocent being killed, they only see the impurethat they have to

  Q – You say suicide bombers experience  a moment of absolute power,
beyond punishment. Is death the ultimate power?
  A – Not death as an end, but death as a door opener to the after life.
They are seeking the reward that God has promised them. They  work for God, the

ultimate authority, above all human laws. They therefore experience this single

delusional second of absolute power,where nothing bad can ever happen to them, since

they become God’s sword.
  Q – Is there a suicide bomber personality profile? Describe the
  A – Generally kids between 15 and 25 bearing a lot of complexes,
generally inferiority complexes. They must have been fed with religion. They usually

have a lack ofdeveloped personality. Usually they are impressionable idealists. In the

western world they wouldeasily have become drug addicts, but not criminals.

Interestingly, they are not criminals since they don’t see good and evil the same way

that we do. If they had been raised in an Occidental culture, they would have hated
violence. But they constantly battle against their own death anxiety. The only
solution to this deep-seated pathology is to be willing to die and be rewarded in the

afterlife in Paradise.
  Q – Are suicide bombers principally motivated by religious conviction?

  A – Yes, it is their only conviction. They don’t act to gain a territory or to find

freedom or even dignity. They only follow Allah, the supreme judge, and what He
tells them to do.
 Q – Do all Muslims interpret jihad and martyrdom in the same way?

  A – All Muslim believers believe that, ultimately, Islam will prevail
on earth. They believe this is the only true religion and there is no room, in their

mind, for interpretation. The main difference between moderate Muslims and extremists

is that moderate Muslims don’t think they will see the absolute victory of Islam during

their lifetime, therefore they respect other beliefs. The extremists believe that the

fulfillment of the Prophecy of Islam and ruling the entire world as described in the

Koran, is for today. Each victory of Bin Laden convinces 20 million moderate Muslims to

become extremists.
  Q – Describe the culture that manufactures suicide bombers.
  A – Oppression, lack of freedom, brain washing, organized poverty,
placing God in charge of daily life, total separation between men and women, forbidding

sex, giving women no power whatsoever, and placing men in charge of family honor, which

is mainly connected to their women’s behavior.

  Q – What socio-economic forces support the perpetuation of suicide bombings?
  A – Muslim charity is usually a cover for supporting terrorist organizations. But one

has also to look at countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran, which are also
supporting the same organizations through different networks. The ironic thing in the

case of Palestinian suicide bombers is that most of the money comes through financial

support from theOccidental world, donated to a culture that utterly hates and rejects

the West (mainly symbolized by Israel).
  Q – Is there a financial support network for the families of the
suicide bombers?  If so, who is paying them and how does that affect the decision?

  A – There used to be a financial incentive in the days of Saddam
Hussein ($25,000 per family) and Yasser Arafat (smaller  amounts), but these
days are gone. It is a mistake to believe that these families would sacrifice their

children for money. Although, the children themselves who are very attached to their

families, might find in this financial support another reason to become suicide

bombers. It is like buying a life insurance policy and then committing suicide.

  Q – Why are so many suicide bombers young men?
 A – As discussed above, libido is paramount. Also ego,  because this is a sure way to
become a hero. The shaheed are the cowboys or the firemen of Islam. Shaheed is a
positively reinforced value in this culture. And what kid has never dreamed of becoming

a cowboy or a fireman?
  Q – What role does the U.N. play in the terrorist equation?
  A – The U.N. is in the hands of Arab countries and third world or
ex-communist countries. Their hands are tied. The U.N. has condemned Israel more than

any other country in the world, including the regime of Castro, Idi Amin or Kaddahfi.

By behaving this way, theU.N. leaves a door open by not openly condemning terrorist

organizations. In addition, through UNRWA,  the U.N. is directly tied to terror

organizations such as Hamas,  representing 65 percent of their apparatus in
the so-called Palestinian refugee camps. As a support to Arab countries, the
U.N. has maintained Palestinians in camps with the hope to “return” into Israel for

more than 50 years, therefore making it impossible to settle those populations, which

still live in deplorable conditions. Four hundred million dollars are spent every year,

mainly financed by U.S. taxes, to support 23,000 employees of UNRWA, many of whom

belong to terrorist organizations (see Congressman Eric Cantor on this subject,
and in my film “Hostages of Hatred”).
  Q – You say that a suicide bomber is a ‘stupid bomb and a smart bomb’
simultaneously. Explain what you mean.
  A – Unlike an electronic device, a suicide killer has until  the last
second the capacity to change his mind. In reality, he is nothing but a platform

representing interests which are not his, but he doesn’t know it.

  Q – How can we put an end to the madness of suicide bombings and
terrorism in general?
 A – Stop being politically correct and stop believing that this
culture is a victim of ours. Radical Islamism today is nothing but a new form of

Nazism. Nobody was trying to justify or excuse Hitler in the 1930s. We had to defeat

him in order to make peace one day with the German people.
  Q – Are these men traveling outside their native areas in large numbers? Based on

your research, would you predict that we are beginning to see a new wave of suicide
bombings outside the Middle East?
 A – Every successful terror attack is considered a victory by the radical Islamists.
Everywhere Islam expands there is regional conflict. Right now, there are thousands of

candidates for martyrdom lining up in training camps in Bosnia, Afghanistan and

Pakistan. Inside Europe, hundreds of illegal mosques are preparing the next step of

brain washing to lost young men who cannot find a satisfying identity in the Occidental

world. Israel is much more prepared for this than the rest of the world will ever be.

Yes, there will be more suicide killings in Europe and the U.S.A.  Sadly, this is only the beginning.

This interview appears to point out what so many have said for so long. This cultural clash will inevitably end in bloodshed that the world has never witnessed before.

McCarthy Gun Grab

Now is the Time to Kill the McCarthy Gun Grab

Gun Owners of America has alerted you on a couple of occasions to a
massive gun control bill that is currently working its way through

H.R. 1415, introduced by New York anti-gun liberal Carolyn McCarthy (D),
authorizes nearly $1 billion to the states to vastly expand upon the
unconstitutional gun laws already on the books.

(McCarthy, whose husband was killed by a lunatic who attacked dozens
of unarmed commuters on a Long Island train, ran for Congress on a
campaign to ban guns.)

McCarthy and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) first introduced this bill
in 2002 after a tragic shooting at a Long Island Catholic church.
We have come to expect that people like McCarthy and Schumer will
always try to exploit tragedy for political gain.

What is surprising, however, is how close this bill is to becoming
law under congressional leadership that claims to be pro-gun. It
already passed the House once, in October of 2002, but was killed
in the senate when GOA teamed up with former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH)
to block the bill.

Now it’s back. H.R. 1415 passed out of the House Crime Subcommittee
in May, and is slated to come before the full Judiciary Committee
in September.

There are many good pro-gun members on the committee who are being
fed misinformation. They’re being told that this is a harmless bill
that will simply make the Brady law work more efficiently.

H.R. 1415 is anything but harmless. The billion dollars will be
used to computerize and make available to the federal government
millions of state records that could include state tax returns,
employment records, library records (we’ve already seen how these
have been deemed relevant to terrorism investigations), DMV,
hospital, mental health and some misdemeanor records — all in the
name of making sure you’re not prohibited from owning a gun.

In all, this bill allows for an enormous data dump from the states
to the federal government, at the same time laying the
infrastructure for even more gun control in the future.

No wonder this bill has leading anti-gunners in Congress frothing
at the mouth. The sponsor of the bill, as noted, is one of the
most virulent anti-gunners in the entire Congress.

Of the 32 cosponsors, 31 are rated “F” on GOA’s scorecard; one is
rated “D.” These representatives support the bill because it
enhances their gun control agenda.

Also among the bill’s supporters are anti-Second Amendment groups
like the Brady Campaign and Americans for Gun Safety (AGS). In
fact, the McCarthy bill is taken point by point from a 2002 AGS
“report” entitled “How America’s Faulty Background Check System
Allows Criminals to Get Guns.”

H.R. 1415, perhaps the most massive expansion of gun control
since the Brady bill passed in 1993, is not a bill that should be
supported by pro-gun conservatives.

Gun Owners of America is the only national gun group opposing
this bill. If you don’t act quickly, your representative will
hear only voices of support for this monstrosity.


1. Please urge your Representative to oppose HR 1415, the McCarthy
gun grab bill.

2. Take the action recommended below and then circulate this
alert to your pro-gun friends and family.

You can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send your Representative a
pre-written e-mail message. (The system will automatically select
one of the two messages below, depending on whether your Rep. is a
member of the Judiciary Committee.) And, you can call your
Representative toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

—– Pre-written letter for non-committee members —–

Dear Representative:

I am very concerned about an anti-gun bill by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy,
HR 1415. This bill spends nearly $1 billion dollars to further prop
up the unconstitutional Brady Law, but there is no authority for the
Federal government to do this under the Second and Tenth Amendments.

I urge you to OPPOSE H.R. 1415.

I would appreciate hearing whether you plan to oppose this bill. Gun
Owners of America will keep me informed about any votes on this
dangerous measure.

Recent guests and topics have included:

* Ken Blackwell: Ohio’s next governor discusses his GOA-PVF

* Eric Shawn: The United Nations Exposed

* Garry Breitkreuz: The Canadian Member of Parliament on dismantling
that country’s hated gun registry


Once again GOA nails the obvious. In this day and age of terrorism the ability to effectively defend oneself, family, friends, neighbors and indeed nation the right to bear arms cannot be infringed upon save a felony conviction or mental incapacity.
