#1 Equipped his own brother with a CAVITY bomb--that's deep freeze cold.

#2 Not at all. If they do not figure this out, they will never understand the enemy.

He made his brother a martyr.

Easy. Simple. Stupid, but the misdirected motivation is very easy to understand.

For the truly pious, it would be the ultimate opportunity. Why not give that to your brother?

#6 Perhaps I should have boldfaced the word 'capable' in my comment.

Carrying a high tech bomb of this kind to a target actually requires both smarts and calm temperament. You have to avoid either setting it off early or disabling it and you have to avoid arousing suspicion.

#8 We're also assuming the brother didn't have a Hot wife. Or Wives. Murder and Dabauchery goes with Islam rather well.
