Jihad Today

"Even those who have trained and fought jihad report the frequency of farce," she said. "At training camps, young jihadis argue about honey, cry for their mums, shoot each other's feet off, chase snakes and get thrown out for smoking. A minute into his martyrdom video, a would-be bomber looks puzzled and says 'what was the question again?' On Millennium eve, five jihadis set out to ram a US warship. They slipped their boat into the water and carefully stacked it with explosives. It sank."
At last, Chirs Morris confronts terrorism.

In the excellent film Paradise Now, when one of the would-be suicide bombers is filming his farewell video, first the equipment breaks down and then he interrupts his martyr's speech with an aside to his mum that there is a sale on water filters across town.
