Call Number: To access, click on link in catalog record.
Publication Date: 2004
In a series of powerful and revealing interviews from inside Israeli prisons, this Wide Angle documentary examines the motives of Palestinian suicide bombers. A recruiter, a bomb builder, and three failed suicide bombers captured by Israeli security forces speak openly of their training, motivation, operational methodology, and profound belief in the idea of entering paradise as a shahid-a martyr for Islam. They discuss their hatred of Jews and Israel, their determination to die, and the personal motivations that have influenced them-including a failed love, a sense of personal revenge, the frustration of living under Israeli occupation, and envy for the prosperous Israeli lifestyle.
