Abstract:

The Second Palestinian Intifada marked a new phase within
Palestinian terrorism—use of the suicide bombers. While not the first
to utilize such tactics, Hamas has become increasingly reliant on them
in their campaign against Israeli occupation. What is new is the age of
the bombers—the self-martyred youth. But why use youth? Are they simply
more susceptible to the fundamentalist rhetoric? Arguing that
self-martyring youth are not simply crazed, confused participants, but
strategically utilized and highly symbolic soldiers in a very modern
form of warfare, the proposed work examines the role of, and
recruitment to, suicide bombing within the Hamas. The work examines
Hamas’ recruitment literature and techniques, as well as their
indoctrination procedures, in order to understand the process by which
young recruits are ultimately transformed into self-martyrs. Only by
examining the ways in which youth martyrs are “cultivated” can we begin
to disrupt the flow of new recruits and understand the conditions that
make youth susceptible to radical politics in the first
place.
