Islam: anyone for truth?
Nicolai Sennels, Danish psychologist, contends that Muslim violence and rape, Muslim rage, aggression and irresponsibility, stem from Muslim beliefs, Islamic beliefs.
Islam as psychosis: symptoms and signs
If this diagnosis is correct, we would have to conclude that Islam is a pathological – perhaps more precisely – a psychotic religion. There is a great deal of collateral evidence supportive of this seemingly extreme, not to say “racist” conclusion, if only because there are about 1.5 billion Muslims on planet earth; and some estimate that as much as 80 percent support Jihad – killing “infidels”!
The Center for the Study of Political Islam makes this high estimate of jihadists quite plausible. According to its February 21, 2007 issue of Front Page, Muslims have slaughtered approximately 270 million people since the ascendancy of Muhammad!
Such slaughter is encouraged by Islam’s bellicose nature. One of its most distinctive religious imperatives is Jihad. Indeed, exterminating “infidels” is encouraged by Islamic scriptures.
Moreover, a love of death – necrophilia – call it psychotic nihilism, animates Islamic absolutism. This nihilistic love of death is manifested in Sura 9:111 of the Qur’an, which exalts the Muslim who “slays and is slain for Allah.”
Islam not civilized
The psychotically violent nature of Islam is surely the basic reason why Syrian-born psychiatrist Wafa Sultan, now living in America, does not regard Islam as a civilization.
The philosophically astute Lee Harris, who rejects cultural relativism, defines civilization in terms of four prerequisites: (1) a stable social order, (2) the co-operation of individuals pursuing their own interests, (3) the ability to tolerate or socialize with one’s neighbors, and (4) a hatred of violence.
To the preceding I would add (5) a respect for truthfulness, a quality precluded by the Muslim doctrine of taqiyya, which exalts deceit and dissimulation as virtues. Islam thus lacks the prerequisites of civilization. Hence it is all the more remarkable that Syrian-born Dr. Wafa Sultan arrived at the same conclusion!
It’s obvious from the preceding remarks that Islam and the West represent a “clash of civilizations,” which the ever correct and cautious PM Netanyahu denied in speech to a joint session of the American Congress on July 10, 1996.
Now, in view of the preceding historical facts and considerations, it should be obvious to any honest observer that genuine negotiations leading to abiding agreements between a nation like Iran, on the one hand, and the United States, on the other, are psychologically, politically, and culturally impossible.
This obviously applies to the “peace process” that has deviously described the relationship between Israel and the factitious Palestinians during the past twenty-two years.
