Death Benefits

by Jonah Goldberg

More on how the families of suicide bombers will get on the martyr’s dole:

Under the new law, the terrorist’s family will be paid a base sum of $250 per month. The law takes into account extended family arrangements commonplace in Arab societies. The families of married terrorists are entitled to an additional $50 per month, and $15 are added for each child, $25 for each parent, and $15 for each brother who lived with the terrorist prior to his death.
Again: The families of the people blown up get nada.
