Suicide-bombers are taught in Madrassas everywhere that it is an honour to be chosen and rather than be tortured into giving away information about the Cause, it is imperative to blow oneself up.
When police approached an apartment on Wednesday, in Saint-Denis, long known as the Parisian Arab Quarter, she followed the lore, maybe because she was a woman and believed herself doubly honoured to be taking the other people there with her.
Now this does not generally happen to leaders. They do not suicide because they are needed, to, er, lead. The reason there was a delay in finding this out is because unidentified bodies had to be extracted from rubble. It is ironic that the planner of the Parisian atrocity should be blown up by his own believer. Score: one big revenge to France.
Doubtless, with all these drones about, leaders suddenly find themselves unpopular. Bodyguards, often mercenaries do not themselves believe in martyrdom from this world, as no-one knows whether there is another and if there is one, punishment for killing your fellow men, would lead to a punishment not so much heinous, which has been overdone, as predictable. The path to hell is well-worn.
