USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Today's Quote

Re - All those who Commit or committed suicide:

"They did
'Cause they wanted to.
As for me,
I will not,
I will rather write poems." (Chidi)

To be or not to be is sometimes an individual choice

hear this one bray : "Give me liberty or give me death !"

You remember Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab ? Maybe , if the explosive device had been strapped over his heart instead of around his crown jewels , it could have been a less difficult choice for him especially with last minute thoughts about the houris in paradise. I imagine, the last thought could have been then with what am I going to enjoy?

At least the old man in the photo is not a coward - he did not get to the point of detonating his suicide vest but had fully prepared himself to do so. The caption to the photo reads: When the Iraq Army captured this ISIS old man they asked him:"Why did you want to bomb yourself and kill innocent people?" He said, " l want to have dinner with the prophet in Heaven."

Some people are ready to fight and die for a cause - the cause may be a longing for heaven

and on earth the worldwide Islamic caliphate with Sharia law under the One God under heaven

Question : What is the difference between suicide and martyrdom?
