Suicide bombing, argues Charny (psychology, Hebrew U. of Jerusalem, Israel), is a product of an Islamic fundamentalist "Culture of Death" that is at war with a Judeo-Christian "Culture of Life." Proceeding from this basic premise, he explores the psychology of suicide bombing and tends to what he thinks are its implications. Thus suicide bombers become a pathological aspect of Islam that needs to be confronted with a "spiritual battle over values" (which includes limiting the speech of those Muslims thought to be promoting the "Culture of Death"), as well as police-military force. While aware of political scientist Robert Pape's argument that suicide bombings are primarily a product of people perceiving their homelands to be under attack or occupation, Charny chooses not to engage Pape's argument in any significant manner.
