Believe me, I'm not defending them. I'm just saying that they weren't mentally ill. It probably didn't matter to them that children would die. Every religion has some kind of loophole about innocents who go to heaven, that way the murdering assholes don't have to feel guilty about killing them. Furthermore, the Koran says to show no mercy towards unbelievers, so they really had no qualms about killing anyone. They probably even guessed there could be Muslims in there, which wouldn't bother them either since the followers of Allah all go to heaven.
That's the problem with believing in an afterlife. Suddenly, life on this earth becomes a little less precious.
