Summary:In this book there is no intention to bury or to praise suicide bombers. Instead, the text explores the controversy regarding the double standards, prejudice, and distortion with the concepts of "suicide bombers/warriors," "terrorism" and "martyrdom." Frequently, the "eyes of the beholders" and the political/religious orientation and loyalties to "one's tribe" color what someone perceives. For example, if you carry a bomb in your hand, you are called a terrorist, but if an F-16 carries bombs and kills civilians, the pilot could be labeled a war hero or freedom fighter. The contributors of this.
