9/11 Suspects Confess

So, they finally admit it:


Now before anyone gets all teary-eyed for these thugs and want to claim these confessions were coerced, realize that this is the absolute best thing that these guys could do for themselves.

Why? Becuase prosecutors in this case are seeking the death penalty. Being the devout Muslims they are, according to their beliefs, this is the only sure way to secure a place in heaven. Islam teaches that there are no guarantees that despite leading a relatively good life, that anyone will be allowed into heaven. The "prophet" Mohamed was quite fickle about this actually. Some Muslims even believe that EVERYONE goes to hell for a period of time, and after they have been adequately punished for their sins, they will allowed into heaven. The ONLY way, according to the "prophet" Mohamed, that someone can guarantee they can get into heaven, and not go to hell, is to sacrifice their lives in defense of Islam.

If they confess and get the death penalty, they sincerely believe they will go to heaven. In fact, it is the only way they can be sure they'll go to heaven. Seems like a no brainer, to me.

I don't think it is a coincidence that these confessions are timed to coincide with the Hajj, either.
