“Repentant Militants”

The Sydney Morning Herald has a story about what they call “repentant militants”. Repentant that they almost killed fellow Muslims, that is. No show of remorse for almost killing infidels.

Saudi state television has aired what it said were confessions by captured militants, in the latest offensive against al-Qaeda supporters blamed for suicide bombings that killed more than 50 people last year.

In a prime-time broadcast, the repentant militants said they were lured by promises of paradise, lectured on the Muslim duty of jihad, and played tapes from Osama bin Laden to persuade them to take up arms.

It was not clear if any of the Islamic militants who appeared on television were directly involved in attacks. They were not named and their faces were digitally obscured.

“We say thank God we were caught before we carried out any crime and harmed Muslims,” one of them said.

Note also how Bin Laden persuaded them to be terrorists – promises of paradise and lectures on the religious duty of Jihad. This should once again indicate that the root cause of terrorism is not Israel, the US, nor poverty. The root cause is a twisted and false religious ideology.
