Ruth Gledhill of the Times is a respected religion correspondent, and really good ones like her are few and far between.
But I think she misses a point in her comments on media coverage of a truly horrible story from Iraq.
A, well, hag in Iraq has been recruiting female suicide bombers - by getting men to rape the women, then telling them that blowing themselves up will free them from their "shame."
Gledhill and other writers pointed out that Islam does not teach or validate rape, and that journalists were therefore correct to keep words like Islam or Muslim out of their reports of the ghastly news.
But rape is not the Islamic connection - suicidal (and homicidal) acts of martyrdom are.
Evil and horrid enough that women are raped, more evil and horrid that their culture then shames them, but monumentally evil and horrid that they are then offered up as sacrifices to expressly Islamic conceptions of jihad, martyrdom and afterlife.
