The Merits of Martyrdom?

According to United Press International, there are books inciting Saudi youth to enroll in holy war being openly sold in bookshops. Youth are encouraged through these books to earn honour and fight "infidels" by becoming suicide bombers. Some of the books include "how to" instructions.

Education and Information Ministry official Youssef Abdel Rahman as saying such books fall under the label of publications banned in Saudi Arabia and that punitive measures will be enforced against the bookstores.

While similar to other publications in giving the instructions to build a bomb, I wonder how dangerous the instructions alongside the indocrination might be.

What do you think?
