Click here for martyrdom

Click here for martyrdom (In Arabic though) The Financial Times reports volunteers are invited by Ansar-e-Hizbollah, Iran's radical Islamic shock-troops, to register by internet for worldwide suicide attacks in the event of a US military strike.

Hmm, I'm amused.

I thought the tabs in the interface looked a bit like that used by MSN. And, viewing the source, I come across these tidbits:

src="Welcome to MSN_com_files/

var L_H_TEXT="For help using this MSN page, click a topic";

From one Axis of Evil to another, I suppose. ;)

"Check here for SMS notification of martyrdom opportunities in your area."

Of course, it won't be long before they start buying lists and spamming everyone.

"Get your own virgins and eternal riches"
"Home business with minimum investment: Martyrdom Now"
"I just made my first online video...of my boyfriend becoming a martyr"
"Don't enlarge, prove you're a man and martyr now"
"Herbal martyrdom: The natural solution to the great satan"

The list goes on.Seriously, the idea of martyrdom is SO foreign to the US mindset that this isn't going to be taken as seriously as it should. I imagine that there will be successful registrations and communications with some appropriate blowing-self to shit that will go undetected until it's too late.

Hey, does the sign-up also include a Safeweb type of portal?

John Ahcroft's nipples just exploded. You visit the Hizbollah site, you may as well just mail your computer to the FBI directly and hit yourself in the crotch with a lead pipe.
