Pub. Date:
For Cook (religious studies, Rice U.) and Allison (a former research assistant on media and terrorism, Rice U.), the religious justifications that are deployed in support of Islamic suicide terrorism are both a key causal factor and perhaps the tactic's single greatest weakness. The urge policy makers to focus more on the religious angle and encourage Islamic political and religious leaders to condemn suicide attacks as a comprehensive genre as well as to engage in sustained religio-ideological discussion about the justness of suicide attacks. They also provide an examination of how groups that employ suicide bombing engage in media operations and consider types of counter-operations.
