    Everyone seems to be wondering why the Arab terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.

    Let's see now......

    No premarital sex.

    No booze.

    No bars.

    No television.

    No Internet.

    No organized sports, stadiums, tailgate parties. (Actually, no tailgates).

    No Hooters.

    No meat from a pig.

    Sand everywhere and not a dune buggy in sight.

    Ever try to fish at an oasis?

    Rags for clothes and hats.

    Constant wailing from the guy next door because he is sick and there are no doctors.

    No music.

    No radio.

    You can't shave.

    You can't shower.

    Bar-B-Q donkey cooked over burning camel dung.

    The women have to wear baggy dresses and veils at all times.

    Your bride is picked by someone else.

    ...and then they tell you that when you die it all gets better!

    Who wouldn't go for it?

    "Fewer books have been translated into Arabic over the past
    millennium than Spain translates in an average year. Some 65
    million Arabs (two of three of them women) are illiterate. It is
    little wonder that such an isolated culture became a breeding
    ground for the Islamic fundamentalism that spawned September 11 or
    that its perpetrators enjoy such a high level of public support
    there today. That might not seem fertile ground in which to try
    to establish democracy. But the fact that roughly half of Arab
    adolescents interviewed say they want to emigrate suggests the
    human desire for freedom is universal. With President Bush making
    reform a major plank of America's new policy in the Middle East --
    and with Arab thinkers like these willing to speak frankly about
    the need for change -- the day when bright and ambitious Arabs
    no longer need to take their talents abroad could come sooner
    than many think." -- Quote from The Wall Street Journal
