The Palestinian and Israeli Media on Female Suicide Terrorists
This chapter discusses Israeli and Arab media coverage of female suicide terrorists. The author presents extracts from articles and identifies recurrent patterns. He argues that the Israeli media perpetuates the chauvinism in Arab Islamic society, whereas the Arab media develops the feminist dimension, portraying the Palestinian female suicide terrorist as a full partner in the jihad.
