A female suicide bomber who failed to complete her mission has been sentenced to death by hanging in Jordan.
Her accomplices in the act – the bombing of a hotel in normally peaceful Jordan that killed 60 people – are either dead or were never caught.
This case was unusual in that suicide bombers are typically male, and typically “successful” in their missions. And it finally showed us what some women are really wearing underneath those burkas.
I think death may have been the wrong sentence for this woman. Instead, the court should have sentenced her to nakedness.
Some cultures have historically punished people by banishing them – sending them out into the world with nothing and forbidding anyone from giving them food, shelter or any kind of assistance.
I think they ought to drop this woman off in the middle of the country somewhere without a stitch of clothing and apply the same “no assistance” rules. Given her culture's emphasis on "modesty," that may be a fate worse than death.
Ah, fuck it – just hang the bitch.
