“...the principal cause of suicide terrorism is resistance to foreign occupation, not Islamic fundamentalism. Even when religion matters, moreover, it functions mainly as a recruiting tool in the context of national resistance.” - Robert Pape and James Fledman - Cutting the Fuse: The Explosion of Global Suicide Terrorism and How to Stop It.


I am the glory
I am God's wrath
I am the soldier walking down the chosen path
My name is vengeance
Courage is my creed
My immolation is the highest of all deeds

I am divine wind:
I am Kamikaze! Kamikaze

You shake in terror
And spit my name
Without your weapons maybe you would be the same
My heart is Christian
Hindu, Muslim, Jew
I am from Jaffna, Berlin, Gaza, or Beirut

I am the shahid:
I am Kamikaze! Kamikaze!

Loyalty and honour into death!
Loyalty and honour on through death!
