First, I don't like the popular term "suicide" bomber. It places the emphasis on the murderer, rather than the victims of his heinous act.

Second, they aren't martyrs. A martyr is one who is persecuted for his beliefs, as in the Christians thrown to the lions by the Romans, or the Christians subjugated under dhimmitude by Muslim conquerors.

To the question...

Men who are recruited into this despicable act are promised 72 renewable virgins in paradise, spending eternity in orgiastic pleasure with orgasms that last 1,000 years.

What incentive is given to female bombers? What the heck are they promised to make them want to do that?

I remember reading that the women bombers are usually outcasts that are trying to redeem themselve in the eyes of God and their families.

martyr
1: one who suffers for the sake of principle
2: one who voluntarily suffers death as the penalty for refusing to renounce their religion

Slightly off topic, and mere semantics but could the second one count?
I guess the kamikaze (i don't like suicide bomber either) is voluntarily blowing himself up?

As for the 72 virgins thing, I have heard that, but never seen it written down.

For female bombers, I guess their reward is they get to go burqua-less?

The women get to spend eternity making sammiches for 72 endlessly hungry 17 year-old boys. It is the apotheosis of Muslim womanhood.

I am somewhere between amused and annoyed with people who are annoyed by the term "suicide bomber." The term is perfectly accurate, and it distinguishes the individual from, say, Paul Tibbets -- which is more than can be said for the dumbasses' default "homicide bomber."

"Suicide bomber" no more "places the emphasis on the murderer, rather than the victims of his heinous act" than "car bomber" or "truck bomber" places the emphasis on the murderer's means of transportation, rather than the victims of his heinous act. GOOD GRIEF!!!! I just realized that calling them "bombers" places emphasis on their weapons, rather than the victims of their heinous acts! CRAP!!!!! We can't call them "killers" or "murderers" either; that places the emphasis on their actions, rather than the victims of their heinous acts! Maybe its best we just don't talk about them at all.

Trust me, we're both winners. I try to watch it alone, because my wife gets upset when I start twitching and foaming at the mouth over my own pet annoyances.

What say we just at 7 PM ?

It's so damned hard to find experienced suicide bombers these days.

Their families are paid off for their sacrifice. After all, we know how hard it is for women in muslim countries to get jobs.
