Palestinian Suicide Bombing Revisited: A Critique of the Outbidding Thesis
ROBERT J. BRYM and BADER ARAJ contest Mia Bloom’s out-bidding thesis, which holds that suicide attacks are a currency for outbidding rivals in the competition for popular support. They find that public opinion data are inconsistent with the outbidding thesis and argue that support for suicide bombing is more a function of social solidarity than competition within the Palestinian community.
