Another Al Qaeda Smithereen Commando Suffers Premature Evisceration

From the same American Forces Press Service news release that reports the probable death of Abu Dua, we learn that an Al Qaeda suicide bomber managed to blow up his suicide vest while still in the car with his accomplices:
Three people were seen in the vehicle before it exploded, officials said. One bomber was wearing a suicide vest, which apparently detonated early, killing the bomber and another occupant, while a third terrorist jumped from the moving vehicle in time to avoid being killed. Iraqi Police arrested the surviving insurgent. Iraqi explosive ordnance experts later cleared the scene.
It is believed that, because of his incompetence, Allah will not provide him with the traditional 72 raisins:
But Manji says recent research shows all that virgin stuff was based on an erroneous translation of the Koran: what awaits in heaven are 72 raisins. What? Could 54 people really have been blown up for a bag of raisins? “Well in 7th century Arabia raisins were so exalted as to be promoted to paradise.”
