Palestinian Suicide Jumper Training 

Masked Palestinian members of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades take position during a rally in Gaza November 17, 2005, preparing to demonstrate the results of their 3 day Suicide Jumper Training Course. After their demands for an international investigation into the death of late president Yasser Arafat fell on deaf ears, the martyrs leaped to their death with boisterous shouts of "Allahu Akhb---" followed by a cluster of loud splats. Senior members of the Martyrs Brigade on hand to observe the demonstration were quite impressed with the splatter and declared the training a success.
