From the article:

Her main motivation in becoming a suicide bomber appears to be religious rather than nationalistic - the fulfilment of a long-held ambition. Even getting married recently hadn't changed her mind.


"Israeli soldiers, of course... are the easier target when they come here, but [I would kill] civilians too because both civilians and soldiers took our land."

But wouldn't she have any difficulty killing people not holding a gun? Wouldn't she feel pity for women and children?

"It is not important because all of them have violated our land. Children are civilians, but they grow up to become soldiers... They are all brought up to hate us. Palestine is only for Palestinians. We must kick them all out in any way we can."

Any empirical studies coming on how this attack was caused by oppression and occupation?
BTW Stephanie, Osama Bin Laden came from an extremely privileged background...
Nobody is being oppressed by a foreign power in India.
What makes them become terrorists is their education and indoctrination into terrorist-supporting and encouraging ideologies.
Like the Wahhabism of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, and the Ismaili'ism of the Iranian mullahs....

Mumbai police: 4 suspects killed, 9 arrested

AP – Gunmen kill scores in India, hostages in hotels

MUMBAI, India – Officials say police have killed four suspects in the Mumbai terror attacks and arrested nine more.

State home secretary Bipin Shrimali says four men were killed in two incidents when they tried to flee in cars. State Home Minister R.R. Patil says 9 others were arrested, but declines to provide details.

Officials say at least 78 people were killed and another 200 wounded. In addition, the attackers were holding hostages Thursday morning.

MUMBAI, India (AP) — Teams of heavily armed gunmen stormed luxury hotels, a popular restaurant and a crowded train station in coordinated attacks across India's financial capital Wednesday night, killing at least 78 people and taking Westerners hostage, police said.

An explosion followed by a raging fire struck one of the hotels, the landmark Taj Mahal, early Thursday. Screams could be heard and enormous clouds of black smoke rose from the at the century-old edifice on Mumbai's waterfront. Firefighters were spraying water at the blaze.

The attackers specifically targeted Britons and Americans, witnesses said. Fires burned and gunfire was heard for hours. Officials said at least 200 people were wounded.

The motive for the onslaught was not immediately clear, but Mumbai has frequently been targeted in terrorist attacks blamed on Islamic extremists, including a series of bombings in July 2007 that killed 187 people.

An Indian media report said a previously unknown group calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen had claimed responsibility for the attacks in e-mails to several media outlets.
Let's also consider the psychology of this.
More hate - this time misogyny (women-hate) - under cover of tradition,
made possible by religion not standing up against it.
And in no way related to any occupation.

Brother held in 9th family 'honor' killing

By Roni Singer-Heruti

Mahmoud Abu-Ghanem was arrested for allegedly murdering his teenage sister Dalia, who has been missing for more than two weeks. Police believe she is the ninth woman in the Abu-Ghanem family to have fallen victim to a so-called "honor killing" at the hands of her relatives.

The Ramle Magistrate's Court extended the remand of Mahmoud Abu-Ghanem, 28, by 10 days yesterday.

Dalia Abu-Ghanem, 16, of Ramle's Juarish neighborhood, was no stranger to sorrow. Her mother Na'ifa was murdered in 2000 in Juarish and her sister Shirihan was murdered in 2006 near her Rahat home, making them the seventh and eighth Abu-Ghanem women to be killed. The murderers are still at large. Three Abu-Ghanem brothers have been tried and convicted for murdering two of their sisters.

When Dalia was 14, she was forced to marry a man from Lod, who is now in prison. She has a three-month-old baby, and spent time in a shelter for battered women, after she was abused and threatened with murder.

"But she chose to go back to her family's neighborhood, as other local women did, and were then attacked," the police representative told the court yesterday.

A few days ago the police asked for the public's help in finding Dalia, after learning she was taken away by force and apparently murdered.

"One day she disappeared," a woman familiar with the earlier cases told Haaretz last week. "Some think she was murdered, others say she ran away, no one knows what happened to her ... there is a lot of fear here in the neighborhood. Women here are frightened, always asking who's next to go, who's left?"
