ABSTRACT
The author investigates the motivations of Muslim women in Palestine who volunteered to be suicide bombers to kill Israelis. She interviewed Palestinian women being held in Ward 12 of Hasharon Security Prison, located north of Tel Aviv, Israel. Most of these women are members of Hamas, the Islamic group that wants to create an Islamic Palestinian state in all of Israel and refuses to recognize the existence of the Jewish state. All of them despised the U.S. for its war in Iraq.
