Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy: Inside a school for suicide bombers
http://www.ted.com/talks/sharmeen_obaid_chinoy_inside_a_school_for_suicide_bombers.html
Here is a brief video made by a Moslem woman in Pakistan, who has been studying the Taliban and their methods. Her courage is incredible, since what she then shows to the world is guaranteed to make her a target for death. What the video shows is how a system of recruiting, controlling, and brainwashing young boys can make them actually eager to become suicide bombers. This is the kind of radicalism (and incidentally, perversion of Islamic principles) that makes the rise of fanatic fundamentalism so dangerous, first to other Moslems, but then to everyone else they hate, Western infidels in particular.
