The head of Hamas compared suicide bombers to Jesus. In an unreleased documentary by Isadore Rosmarin, Abdel Aziz Rantissi offers a new rationale for the use of children as suicide bombers, the New York Post reported. The successor to Sheik Ahmed Yassin, killed by Israel last week, said “martyrdom bombers” among Palestinian youths “are ready to sacrifice for the sake of our people,” just as “Jesus, peace be with him, sacrificed for human beings.”
