Why are they not afraid to die? (A middle-east question)

Alot of us cherish our lives we want to live to see our grandchildren but it makes me sad that some people (well the men from the middle-east) seem to not care about their lives I watch movies and they say I will die for you... Allah. Yes I would die for our lord but when my time comes not to just do it. Maybe I am watching too many movies, but if it is true that is so sad to me. And WHY?
I love all types of people why do this to yourselves enjoy life it is beautiful, Our lives are very precious to us, those of you that don't care you treat your life like it is not worth a penny:(

  • Umm I would not base your opinion of people you obviously know NOTHING about from movies. But for those that are willing to sacrafice themselves (suicide bombers) you have to understand how different their life has been from yours. It's almost a form of brainwashing. You live your life and think the things you think because that is how YOUR society has taught you. Think of THEIR society...

  • To them that is the highest honor, to die for Allah. Just because you do not understand it (I don't really either) doesn't mean that we aren't required to respect their beliefs, but work for a world that they don't feel this is necessary. There is a middle ground for us all :)

  • Ill burn in hell for a life living and breathing with them.
    Im a single mom, I hve no family, and If I were to die tomorow my kids would be thrown in the system and may not have a good life.
    I couldnt risk that and I would hope they would understand.
    eveything I do is for them, eveythng I do is because I love them.

  • they believe it is the holy way to go..it is for their god.

    religion is powerful. i do not agree with their tactics but in a way you have to respect their dedication to their god

  • Why are you taking your info from movies? Do some real research. It is usually brain washing, living in a culture that we know nothing about. Some of these people have their families threatened, their wives and daughters raped and killed in front of them. Sometimes it isn't really a choice. They are so brainwashed that they would do anything that is asked of them.
