Why so few have joined al Qaeda's jihad
The author starts looking at the case of Mohammed Taheri-Azar, who launched a vehicle attack on fellow students at the University of North Carolina in 2006.
What FP Blog did not state is the author, Charles Kurzman, has written a book 'The Missing Martyrs: Why There Are So Few Muslim Terrorists' and was reviewed on:http://motherjones.com/mixed-media/2...zman-jihadists

the answer lies in that there just are not that many psychopaths per 100,000 people, regardless of theology or culture, and using coercion to engage in suicide bombing only goes so far.
I also cannot fail to notice how the most strident calls for violent jihad come from those exhorting for others to do it.
"What is best in life?" "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women."
