Suicide bombing is a terrorist tactic. It is employed primarily by Muslims, who believe that blowing themselves up to kill their enemies will grant them admittance into heaven.
Suicide bombing is used by Muslims in Iraq against Americans, and in Israel against Jews. Occasionally, it is reported in Saudi Arabia as well.
Many Americans have suggested that the practice should be called "homicide bombing," "suicide murdering," or "homicide murdering" to reflect the evil nature of the tactic.
