Aren't a significant number of suicide bombers middle class, college educated, etc?

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
yep....apparently there was an article some time back in the Herald or maybe some other publication that you could actually go and buy suicide bombers near the Af-Pak border region for a pretty paltry amount and also for taking care of the bombers family afterwards. I don't remember the details of the article too clearly now but it came a few months after Benazir Bhutto's assassination.
It is disappointing to see the PPP which is a relatively liberal party pandering to the masses and playing the religion card to strenghten its own position at a time when it is under attack by the Supreme court in the Swiss letters and dual nationality cases.
Whenever a Pakistani government has tried to use religion to get out of a political mess, it ended up in an unmitigated disaster. Ayub Khan flirted with it, then Zia went in all out and now Zardari too.
Get well soon Yuvi!!
Sad that the Pakistani politicians and government are pandering to the hardliners...

Muslims have to live with the fact that there are going to be people in the world that don't respect their religion. You can't expect to wipe out the last voice of criticism. This is where I find the condemnation of violence rather week even from the Muslim liberals. It typically goes as - "The violence is deplorable and unjustified. Having said that...". No there's no having said that... It's not right to suppress expression of views against your religion. Critics are here to stay, and you yourselves need them (how else would Turkey be secular or some other country not force woman to wear hijab?). Some critics are going to be crude and "disrespectful", and you can't help it.“We would go to the UN and OIC and get a law passed to stop anti-Islam activities, including blasphemy, for-ever,” he added. The prime minister said the Muslims have respect and reverence for all prophets and messengers of God and also other religions in the world. The Muslims expect that followers of other religions would reciprocate in the same way, he added. It was time to wage a diplomatic war with full sincerity and commitment until the international community is convinced to take concrete action including due legislation against all kinds of anti-Islam activities that provoke the sentiments of the Muslim world, Raja said.

Its a friggin' disgrace.
Another question, I saw Bill Maher yesterday (and I don't necessarily agree with him on this issue) and Salman Rushdie was on. He said that in the 70s and before, places like Tehran, Baghdad, Damascus, etc were very cosmopolitan and liberal cities (which is certainly true, by all contemporary accounts). I know the Iranian revolution was a big tipping point in the middle east, but what else do you think might have caused the big cultural change?
