Answer Me This...


Jordan 'failed bomber' confesses on TV...

"I tried to detonate mine but I failed,' woman tells interrogators."

"My husband detonated his bomb, and I tried to detonate mine but failed," Saijida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi said on Jordanian television. "People fled running, and I left running with them."

"Jordanian authorities say al-Rishawi, 35, and her husband, Hussein Ali al-Shamari, went to carry out their bombings at the Radisson hotel. His explosives went off, killing 38 people attending a wedding reception in the ballroom."

'Jordan's Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher said al-Rishawi is the sister of Zarqawi's "right-hand man," who was killed in Falluja, Iraq. He did not identify the Zarqawi lieutenant."

This story is intriguing to me on several levels. It brings up all kinds of interesting questions...

For one thing, this woman is the sister of a very high ranking Al-Queda official, and the wife of another one (who, incidentally succeeded in blowing himself up.)

Is Al-Queda having recruitment problems? Are they now having to resort to sending their right hand men, and family members? Even the women?

That's another thing...

Haven't female suicide bombers been rare up until now?

Isn't one of the motivating factors in recruiting suicide bombers the promise of Eternity in Paradise, surrounded by seventy perpetual virgins?

How does that work for a woman?

Does she get male virgins, or female virgins?

If she gets male virgins, how does that work within the religion of Islam? Would Allah be okay with the idea of a woman in a position of power over that many men for all of eternity?

Or does she become one of the virgins for some other suicide bomber? If so, do you think it would be worth it to blow yourself up so that you could have the chance to service some dude once every 25 to 35 days? (If he was an absolute machine...)

Or would she be assigned to her husband? In that case, she would get the chance to share him with sixty-nine other chicks...

And if that is the case, then is it possible that her husband might have tampered with her bomb, so that it wouldn't go off?

Is it possible that she screwed up on purpose?

And the ultimate question on this subject...

Have you ever thought about what a woman has to do to remain a perpetual virgin? She has to refrain from EVER having sex, right?

Would you want to live for all eternity with seventy women with whom you could NEVER have sex? EVER?
