Suicide Bomber Justification

Question Description

Suicide bombing is one of the most popular terrorist tactics used today. While most of the world sees this tactic as barbaric and cannot understand why anyone would agree to using this tactic, there is a school of thought that justifies its use.

Riaz Hassan is an Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow and Emeritus Professor in the Department of Sociology, Flinders University. In January 2010, he wrote a piece titled Life as a Weapon: Making Sense of Suicide Bombings.

  1. In a well-written paper:
    • a. Write an essay outlining the justifications for suicide bombing as discussed by Mr. Hassan. In addition find an example of an actual suicide terrorism incident, describe the circumstances and compare and contrast those circumstances with M. Hassan's piece.
    • b. Make sure your discussion reflects themes in Chapters 5 through 6 of our textbook.
  2. Your papers must:
      • i. The first page of your paper will be a cover sheet correctly formatted according to APA guidelines.
      • ii. The second page will include an Abstract.
      • iii. This paper will use 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font, and double spacing.
      • iv. A minimum of three citations must be included and the citations for each article MUST be correctly formatted according to APA guidelines. Do NOT use an automated citation manager to perform this function. Do it manually for this assignment and check your formatting against available APA resources.
    • a. Excluding the cover page, the Abstract and references page, this paper must be at least 3 pages of written text.
    • b. Only COMPLETE paragraphs consisting of an introductory sentence, a full explanation of key points supported with properly cited sources, and a concluding sentence may be used.
    • c. Only use published articles from academic texts, such as those found at scholar.google.com or accessed through your Grantham University EBSCO host account (not Wikipedia).
    • d. The entire paper must be your original work. It may not include quotes and at no time should text be copied and pasted.

This paper DOES require an introductory paragraph, explicit thesis statement, concluding paragraph, and references page.

essay, we seek to justify the suicidal acts of the terrorists. Despite many world leaders attributing
terrorism to Islamic fanaticism, studies indicate that the suicidal attacks are resulting from a
political aspect rather than from religious aspect. In order to fully comprehend the dynamics of
suicide attacks, it is essential to first understand what can drive an individual into committing
suicide. According to studies conducted by Mr. Hassan for more than forty years, individuals
who commit suicide seek achievement of multiple ends such as seeking to be redeemed while
facing damnation. A majority of these terrorists are psychologically sound and an emotional
bond to their societies. This means that labelling suicide bombers as sick or mad is not quite
accurate and thus sets the society on the wrong track on learning the truth behind suicide
bombing and how to deal with the issue so as to avoid similar attacks in the future. Mr. Hassan
states three aspects that play a crucial role in shaping and organizing the subculture which
promotes suicide attacks; namely revenge, humiliation, altruism and revenge. It is evident that
the attacks are planned and undertaken by community-based organizations hence it is better to
employ techniques that will aid in in...
