Gaming Zawahiri's 'Death'
The Pentagon believes it may have ended Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri's wretched life by bombing an al-Qaeda safehouse in Damadola, Pakistan, near the Afghan border. Tissue samples have supposedly been sent to the U.S. for forensic examination.
Al-Qaeda will denounce any positive results as 'wishful thinking', but will al-Qaeda offer any proof that Zawahiri was, in fact, untouched by this attack? Say, by issuing a new videotape from the good doctor with timely evidence that the video was produced after his supposed death?
Zawahiri produces videos on a fairly regular basis, so he apparently has little fear that new videos might lead to his detection. In Zawahiri's last video from January 6, 2006 he even took up one of Howard Dean's DNC talking points and ran with it, saying "Bush, you must admit that you have been defeated in Iraq."
So come on al-Qaeda, if the reports of Zawahiri's death are premature, you'll give us proof, right?
Or can you?

I have some questions about the way a person dies in Jihad??? Will they go to heaven according to the Koran if they are killed by the infidel? Or do they have to do the suicide bombings in order to go to heaven? AND do they still get the virgin's if they are cowardly enough to hang out in communities where children are vulnerable to attacks???...

My understanding is that any Muslim who dies in a legitimate jihad is a shaheed, or martyr, entitled to 72 virgins upon death.
Now, the question seems to be, what is legitimate jihad . . . ?

Serious question here also: what do female martyrs get as a reward in heaven?
Posted by: Ken McCracken at January 14, 2006 08:32 PM
They might call themselves Shaheeds! ... But I can think of another word that would be more appropriate! It sounds very similar to shaheed??? Can you guess?
I really wonder how these individuals can really be such ...??? (Shiites) no that isn't quite the right word either! ...Hmmmm...

What a name Damadola...I have so many puns in my head from this post that I am getting kind of silly!
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at January 14, 2006 09:16 PM
Well, maybe it isn't quite 72 virgins that they get in heaven . . .
Posted by: Ken McCracken at January 14, 2006 10:03 PM
That is such an odd rendition of Heaven... Imagine trying to be good so when you die you recieve 72 or how many ever virgins? OR killing "infidels" in hopes you will recieve a bunch of virgins??? Uh silly me! But that is not a very "peaceful religion" if you ask me!... I would be hiding my face too if I were they!
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at January 14, 2006 10:31 PM
Is that what a female shaheed gets, free shoes?
Wow, what a ripoff.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at January 15, 2006 01:15 PM
Those Shaheeds are not real nice to their females! The men have a real bad Superiority complex thing going on!... The entire Mid East male population are the biggest bunch of chauvinists ever! (It could be all that inbreeding???)
