Sir: Suicide bombers are portrayed as terrorists but they are actually devout young men who believe, on respected authority, that death will transport them instantly to paradise where they will find, amid fountain-cooled gardens, their martyr's reward.

After such religious education classes we must be thankful that suicide attacks are not commoner. Appeals to the better feelings of the faithful are counterproductive given the better feelings that they have been brought up to have.
