The lack of rationalism imbedded in an act so heinous as hijacking a plane with the sole purpose of using that plane as a weapon of murder-suicide is hard to grasp for most of us. But then, most of us do not live our lives with the irrational belief that killing ourselves while murdering innocents will send us to Paradise.

The bombing in Boston has demonstrated quite clearly that fighting such irrationalism is incredibly difficult when we limit our counter-terrorism to rational actions.
Once I realised this, I quickly thought of one irrational, and highly cost-effective method of shielding airplanes from Islamic terrorism. It’s simple: place a Koran on every plane. Since Muslims are willing to riot when someone else defiles a Koran anywhere in the world, it would seem that destroying a plane with a Koran on it would be the height of sacrilege. So, as I see it, the act of martyrdom would be negated by intentionally destroying the precious, precious Koran. Problem solved!


…. ask me if I’m surprised. (The answer is ‘no’)
