Understanding the Quran

FACTS ON THE QURAN
 
In order to better understand those who sacrifice their lives to slaughter others, one needs to take a better look at where their beliefs arise from. In the case of Islamic Extremists we need to understand and study the Quran.
During my research I was trying to find ways to use the Quran to dissuade them (the so called "suicide-bombers").
Based on the following findings I was able to draw the following conclusion:
 
Extremists have taken their interpretation of the Quran and modernized it a little. If a word doesn't allow a specific action, change the word to your advantage. For example:
* Suicide is prohibited! Martyrdom is NOT.
*Killing non-combatants is prohibited unless of course you can find a way to twist it to "they are not true believers so they are the infidels, so even of we happen to kill some true believers in the process they will go to heaven. Therefore we are doing them a favor."
Also we found that most of these so called "suicide-bombers" have come to terms with the following concept:
 
WE ALL DIE SOONER OR LATER
(They have come to terms with their own mortality)
 
WE HAVE TO CHOOSE HOW WE WILL DIE
(Do we want to live a waisted life? Or do we want to die doing something right?)
 
THIS DECISION IS IN OUR HANDS
(We can not let ANYONE make that decision for us, not family, not friends, this is about our soul)
 
LIFE ON EARTH IS JUST A STEP, A RIGHT OF PASSAGE TO HEAVEN
 
ONLY THE AFTERLIFE MATTERS
(As it is eternal on the side of Allah)
 
ALL THINGS ARE CREATED BY ALLAH
(Allah has created all good and bad. It is for us to fight the bad and all will be good as we fight for Allah)
 
WE NEED NOT TO BE CONCERNED WITH PETTY THINGS
(Material things of life: car, love, family, friendships, earthly pleasures)  SINCE THE DEVOTION TO ALLAH SUPERSEDES ALL
 
WHOEVER STANDS IN THE WAY OF ALLAH MUST CONVERT OR BE ERRADICATED.
(The Quran clearly states that the enemy must be given an opportunity at redemption -- See Surah 9)
 
Now these are my findings on the matter of the "martyr" / "suicide bomber" mindset. This does NOT reflect Islam as an entity. Islam does by no means preach this as such. 
In order for you to make your own judgement, I encourage you to conduct your own research. I therefore provide you with some of the links that I used during my research.   
This includes links to quranic research, suicide bombing videos, and other websites that provide a wide range of information on the matter.
The videos can be graphic at times. Viewer Discretion is Advised.
 
NEVER FORGET THAT
WHATEVER YOU HEAR OR READ OR RECEIVED FROM "TRUSTED EMAIL SOURCES" ON THIS MATTER NEED TO BE VERIFIED!
