Mary Anne Weaver’s new book “Her Majesty’s Jihadists” documents that “more British Muslim men have joined ISIS and the Nusra Front than are serving in the British armed forces.”
An estimated one thousand men per month are leaving the West and traveling to various parts of the Middle East to receive training in Jihad. In London the International Center for the Study of Radicalization (I.C.S.R) at King’s College is determined to discover the root causes of this phenomenon within western societies.
If honesty prevails they will find the root cause within Islam. It is suggested that western societal barriers- economic, education, and social, foster this revolt against civilized culture, resulting in young Muslim men converting to a “radical” version of their childhood religion. But this excuse has been disproven by the facts. Osama Bin Laden was educated, wealthy, and very well connected, as are many leaders of Islamic Jihad.
The Muslim prophet Mohamed’s writings in the Koran are all the evidence needed to convict the religious philosophy of inciting murder. That, plus all the head banging the devout do multiple times each day.
The Koran demands acts of devotion to prove oneself holy, including prayers towards Mecca five times daily. With each prostrate prayer session the devotee has numerous opportunities to bang his forehead against the floor, in a perverse attempt to please Allah with his suffering.
Studies show a correlation between this type of repeated “bumping” of the forehead and brain trauma. Muslims revere the “head bump” as an outward sign of the wounded’s high level of commitment to personal holiness. Ironically the prayerful one may actually become the victim of self-induced brain damage.
It’s interesting that Islam’s most “holy” are probably also the most brain damaged. Muslim Jihadi leaders consider themselves to be the most religiously devout. Might they be the most intellectually challenged as well?
