Confessions of a neocon for the Gucci Jihad

Once a neocon (neo-conservative) friend confessed that indeed the suicide wave of 'martyrs' in Palestine was an act of fashion, like Gucci and Prada.
Apparently suicide bombing was 'in' as an easy way into martyrdom and Muslim heaven.

I guess that also the fighters in Lebanon have too, been the 'fashion' victims of another struggle, in unison with their fellow people that suffer from the same disease.

Funny but seems that the rich kids of this world prefer Yale, Stanford, Harvard and Oxford for their enjoyment whilst avoiding the fashion to kill themselves to save or protect others.

Strange times we are living.
