Random Wondering

I've completely enamored with Gila and her blog (hint, hint, go read it) due to her fine writing and wry sense of humor. But in reading this post, I can't help but wonder - are female suicide bombers promised 72 virgins also? Or is that strictly reserved for the male suicide bombers? And if it's reserved for the men, why on earth would a woman choose to commit such an act?

Just wondering.

Many of them are mentally ill, or are accused of bringing dishonor to their families and are in fear of honor killings. So they choose suicide killings to "cleanse themselves"
