Martyr saves 100+ lives from suicide bomber February 4, 2007

Sometimes I feel almost guilty, living this life of no real cares and no real immediate threat of death. I wonder how it must feel to know that at any moment you may find yourself face-to-face with an extremist who is willing to kill himself just to teach you a lesson. I wonder if I would have had the courage to do what this man did, to wrap myself around a suicide bomber and so prevent anyone else getting killed. From the details given in this story it would appear that the mand in question could just as easily have walked the other way and let the other 100+ Muslims in the mosque be blown up without him. It’s hard to remember that Iraq is full of heroes as well as ful of ideological madmen.
