Sampson and Delilah of Bible fame - Sampson gained his strength from his long hair. He was betrayed by the beautiful Delilah. She cut his hair and his enemies took him captive. They chained him to the pillars of the banquet hall. As his hair grew back his strength returned. He used his strength to pull down the pillars of the banquet hall killing those inside as the building collapsed. Divine punishment and retribution or terrorism?

The more things change... the more they stay the same? Eh?
