As a point of trivia, you may find it interesting to know that the “suicide bomber” has a longer history in Jewish attacks on Muslims than the other way around, even though Islamic bombers is what we hear about most these days. Christians also used suicide bombs against Muslims (the Knights Templar loaded their own ships with bombs and crashed into Muslim enemies during the Crusades). The Japanese did it during WWII, and the Tamil Tigers, the Viet Minh, the Kurds, as well as other groups in Russia, India, all over Africa, Argentina, Columbia, and Panama have all used suicide bombers. Most of the “martyrs” have been well off and educated, a majority holding university degrees.

Anyway, I was reading this article about right-wing Jewish extremists planning to fly a plane filled with explosives into Temple Mount and destroying the Al-Aqsa mosque or the Golden Dome shrine and killing many in the process. Ignoring the part about “what a fucked up world we live in”, I thought though that the advertisements on the article were somewhat ironic:

Don't like the idea of suicide bombing? Well, Americans for Peace Now — End This Game Now! On the other hand, maybe you do like the idea. In that case, you can fly with the good folks at the Tehilim Hotline. Someone needs to write a better contextual ad placement engine I think, that determines not only subject matter, but positive/negative context.

PS. If you want real news, the 9/11 report is BS.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
