In response to those who feel these acts are brave:
Terrorists who commit these acts are cowards.
Suicide itself is a cowardly act; it is a lack of bravery to face life and it consists of a focus on your own plight rather than caring for others.
I would also contend that killing unarmed innocent civilians is another cowardly act.
2 cowardly acts = a coward
You may believe that it is brave to die for a belief, but what do these beliefs consist of? These terrorists believed that they would be rewarded for these acts by going to "paradise" to enjoy wealth, pleasure, and young virgin women. This is not an altruistic act - this is a selfish act. They obtain paradise at the cost of hundreds of innocent lives.
