    We've seen this game before. In Russia now, they are judging the Black Widows. Were these girls manipulated by older husbands? Maybe. But isn't killing your husband, and denying the country's right to indepedence also enough cause to fight back with every fiber of your being? In WW II the Japanese had kamikazi pilots on suicide missions. I wonder if these flyers had abusive childhoods. You see the point? Some Israelis want to explain suicide bombers with brainwashing or child abuse. This is occupier's pyschoanalysis. You make the resistance a personal issue rather than acknowledge that the act of resistance might relate directly to rejection of an intolerable occupation.
