When I was six I wanted to be an astronaut... 

But it seems that the 6-year old Uzair Dockrat, over in South Africa, would rather become a "martyr". His father, Mohammad Dockrat, who strapped a fake explosives belt to his son's body and dragged him off to protest the assassination of Hamas leader Sheik Yassin, also doesn't seem to mind if the young Uzair detonates himself sometime in the future.

Uzair's dad is - you've guessed it - a university lecturer.

As they say, different strokes for different folks - what would a white, middle class, heterosexual male like me understand about different cultures anyway?
