Staring Into Death


Little Green Footballs has posted a picture of the female bomber in Israel. Look at her eyes. There is something eerily distant there. A void, a want of meaning, something . . . I don’t know what. It may be just because it is a picture, but many pictures convey some sort of emotion. This conveys nothing but the surrendered eyes of a someone who has found meaning only in death.

It’s sad.

  • She looks to me like someone who has given up, like she has no options. I have no sympathy with these suicide bombers, but this is too bad. I do notice that we have information in the news about her children. Did the bombing victims have no family?
