Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Modern-day suicide bombers who strike fear into the heart of Western cities are a relatively recent phenomenon. The Cult of the Suicide Bomber reveals the secret history of the suicide bomber, from the child martyrs of the Iran-Iraq war, the truck bombers in southern Lebanon, to the young men and women who now strap explosives to their bodies and calmly blow up themselves and hundreds of others in the streets of the Middle East. In this groundbreaking documentary, former CIA spy Robert Baer reveals the fascinating story of the world's first suicide bomber, 13-year-old Hossein Fahmideh - who was martyred in the Iran-Iraq war and is now a hero in Iran - and visits his highly decorated grave in the graveyard of martyrs just outside Tehran.
