Arab TV to Show Suicide Bomber "Mock Wedding" with Virgin

Last week’s terror show on Al-Arabiya showed never before seen details on Al Qaeda leaders Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Al-Arabiya, the Arab TV channel kicked out of Iraq last week for promoting sectarianism and violence, is now broadcasting a show on a suicide bomber in a mock wedding with a virgin before his terror act!
ADN Kronos reports:

A new programme airing on al-Arabiya, the Dubai-based pan-Arabic network, will on Friday show rare footage of a mock wedding ceremony carried out for a suicide bomber on the eve of his terrorist mission. Known as The Martyr’s Wedding – the young man is being symbolically wed to the ‘virgin’ that under Islamic teaching awaits him in heaven – it is also believed to be a form of moral encouragement by terrorist groups to encourage followers to conduct suicide operations.

The programme is the second in a new series on terrorism which examines some of the social, religious, political and economic factors that play into the terrorist phenomenon and boasts rare or previously unknown video footage.

The first episode, aired last Friday, discussed the backgrounds of the the three most wanted leaders of Al-Qaeda – Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi – revealing details that have never been shown through video footage and interviews with their relatives and friends.

The upcoming second episode, entitled “From Recruitment To Death”, looks at how young people are being convinced to join extremist groups, and how they are being trained on weapons and in carrying out suicidal attacks.

There is also footage showing how and where members of those groups receive intensive training in explosives and in combat with various kinds of weapons.

Iraq closed the Al-Arabiya ofices in Baghdad earlier in the week for inciting sectarianism and promoting violence.

The government had sent warnings to Al-Arabiya in the past to rectify the situation but they were ignored. Aljazeera was already banned from Iraq.

Al-Arabiya denies the charges!

And, yet Muslims are outraged at the Pope for commenting on Islam and Christianity and the relationship between violence and faith!

In other words… when radical Muslims blow up the Vatican with a few truck bombs, the Leftist Western media will justify it because of these hurtful comments by the Pope.

Update: Jihad Bride magazine?
