I haven't heard this story in the mainstream media (not the the CSM isn't mainstream, but you know what I mean), but it sounds interesting.

If you accept for just a moment that the desire to be a suicide bomber is driven by strong beliefs and a faith that what you're doing is best for you, then you have to agree that if those beliefs and faith can be successfully questioned, you might lose your desire to blow yourself (and as many infidels as possible) to kingdom come.

Question is, the Saudis have spent maybe a few $billion promoting Wahabbism. Could we counter it with words, in addition to bombs and bullets? And if we tried, who would object the most? The Saudis? Left-liberals, complaining we were trashing freedom of religion?
