  1. Why should they be asking for bail? since they have implemented the instruction of their god to behead the people of the “BOOK” for the reward of “72 virgins in paradise” so its expected they should be bold enough to have taken their own lives by commiting suicide to evade arrest or being charged and paraded in court, and hasting their journey to paradise to enjoy the 72 virgins. In the first place they shouldn’t have required the services of a lawyer. Why did they have to hire a lawyer to defend themselves? Why did they hire a lawyer to lie they didn’t commit the crime they wilfully commited? I taught since they have done the right thing for their god they should have pleaded guilty so the the magistrate will quickly sentence them to death since they have met the condition for reward and enjoyment in “paradise”? Why are they still seeking to be ALIVE ON PLANET EARTH? I guess their innermost conscience keeps telling them they will face judgement in the hereafter and the consequences is hell fire. Can you see you have been fooled?
