Insane Muslim Terrorists

A Muslim terrorist stabbed four people at a train station near Munich while screaming, “Allahu Akbar”. In between proclaiming the glory of Allah, he also shouted that his victims were all “unbelievers”. A woman heard him say, “Infidel, you must die”.

The German authorities came to the inescapable conclusion that the attack had nothing to do with Islam. Instead the stabber had been “mentally ill” and was probably not even fit to stand trial. The Koran wasn’t to blame. It was the fault of his psychological problems.

This isn’t surprising. It’s a well known fact that there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism. Instead there are just a lot of people out there, of Muslim origin, suffering from a unique set of psychological problems that cause them to shout Allahu Akbar while trying to kill people who aren’t Muslims.

This should not however be attributed to the notoriously peaceful religion of peace.

Just last week the FBI busted James Muhammad who had been plotting to shoot up a Florida synagogue for the “glory of Allah”. Muhammad explained that he wanted to murder the men, women and children praying at the synagogue because, “I have a lot of love for Allah”.

Not only did this minor story receive only a fraction of the attention devoted to the truly important news that a Muslim teenage girl had Isis written in her High School yearbook, but Muhammad’s lawyer insisted at a bail hearing that he isn’t a terrorist, just suffering from mental problems.

Much like Ahmed Ferhani, who plotted to bomb a New York synagogue a few years ago to, in his own words, “send a message of intimidation and coercion to the Jewish population of New York City." Ferhani however wasn’t just a racist terrorist, he’s also a cause célèbre for The Nation which five years later continues to advocate on behalf of an aspiring anti-Semitic mass murderer. The latest report from the left-wing magazine breathlessly informs readers that prison guards are being mean to poor Ahmed and that he never really meant to kill any Jews, but was entrapped due to his “psychiatric problems”.

Muhammad and Ferhani join Shahawar Matin Siraj who was convicted of plotting to bomb the Herald Square subway station in New York. Siraj was an illegal alien who worked at a Muslim bookstore and boasted, “I want at least 1,000 to 2,000 to die in one day.” His family and defenders claimed he had a low IQ. His co-defendant, James Elshafay, suffered from, you guessed it, psychological problems.

Matthew Aaron Llaneza converted to Islam and tried to blow up a bank in Oakland. His defenders blamed mental problems. Muslim ISIS supporter Emanuel Lutchman plotted a machete attack in Rochester last year. Despite his contacts with ISIS, the culprit once again was mental illness.

Sami Osmakac plotted to bomb Florida nightclubs. He recorded a “martyrdom” video issuing a call to “Muslims worldwide” to carry out terrorist attacks and avenge Osama bin Laden. He declared that the toenail of a sinning Muslim is worth more than all the non-Muslims in the world put together.

You’ll probably be surprised to hear that his lawyer blamed “mental illness” and claimed that his client had been “entrapped”. As has every Muslim terrorist ever for 1,400 years since Mohammed.

Mansour Arbabsiar was dispatched by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington. His defense claimed that he was bipolar. His lawyer insisted that the fact that he had confessed to everything proved that he was mentally ill because his illness, “led him to believe that he could convince the agents to see things his way”. Him and every other criminal out there.

Even when Muslim terrorists don’t claim mental illness, the media is happy to plead it for them.

When Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 13 Americans in the Fort Hood Massacre, Time and the New York Times suggested that he had somehow contracted PTSD from treating soldiers. In fact Hasan was a Muslim terrorist. No media outlet would stop claiming that he had PTSD long enough to read his letters in which he explained that he was a Jihadist, supported ISIS and killed American soldiers “for the greater cause of helping my Muslim brothers” and defending the “Islamic Empire”.

The defense for the surviving Tsarnaev terrorist who had carried out the Boston Marathon bombing went one better by blaming the “severe psychiatric disorders” of his parents. The Boston Globe, had interviewed psychologists to determine what possible “mental health conditions” he might have had.

Any mental condition will do when it comes to Muslim terrorists.

And the media never leaves any exculpatory stone unturned when it comes to finding a crazy excuse for a Muslim terrorist. The Los Angeles Times tried to find excuses for Syed Rizwan Farook, the San Bernardino Muslim killer, by claiming that he had grown up in a home “racked by mental illness”.

If a Muslim terrorist isn’t actually mentally ill, maybe one of his relatives was mentally ill. Or maybe, like Hasan, he once met someone who was mentally ill and got PTSD all over himself.

Internationally all Muslim terrorists are also mentally ill. Zehaf-Bibeau opened fire at the Canadian Parliament. Terror apologists claimed that he was mentally ill. In the UK, Muhaydin Mire tried to behead a man while shouting, “This is for Syria”. He had ISIS material on his phone and pictures of the Paris and San Bernardino shootings. His brother claimed that smoking pot had given him a “mental problem”. Sydney hostage taker Sheikh Man Haron Monis, who had become infamous for sending threats to the families of dead Australian soildiers, had his actions blamed on “mental instability.”

Michael Adebowale, one of the Jihadists who brutally beheaded British soldier Lee Rigby on a London street, also went the mental illness route.

In Russia, Muslim monster Gyulchekhra Bobokulova beheaded a 4-year-old girl and displayed her head in the street while shouting, “Allahu Akbar. I hate democracy. I am a terrorist. I want you dead.” Faced with these bafflingly inscrutable statements, the authorities blamed mental illness.

It was the safe thing to do. It always is.

Mental illness requires nothing of us except horror. Islamic terrorism demands that we do something about it. And that’s the last thing that the authorities who helped make this mess want.

German authorities, like their American, Russian, Europe and Australian counterparts, don’t want to take on Muslim immigration. It’s much easier to shove some more money at mental health clinics.

And what is mental illness anyway?

In the West, the conviction that you must kill people in order to receive 72 virgins in paradise would be considered a mental illness. In Islam, it’s a mainstream belief. 89% of Pakistanis believe in genies. But then again genies are present in Islamic scripture. 89% of Tunisians believe in witchcraft. 72% of Iraqis believe in the “evil eye”. 1 in 5 Afghanis have witnessed an exorcism. Half of Pakistanis believe in fairies.

Saudi religious police have a special Anti-Witchcraft Unit and there are actual witch trials. Majorities of Muslims don’t believe that Muslims carried out the 9/11 attacks. 40% of Pakistanis believe that fathers have a right to kill their daughters if they engage in premarital sex. Half of British Muslims think that the Jews are in league with the Freemasons. A third believes that Princess Diana was murdered to stop her from marrying a Muslim.

Ideas and behaviors associated with mental illness in the West are mainstream in parts of the Muslim world which exist in a pre-rational medieval universe brimming with conspiracy theories, paranoid delusions, lack of personal responsibility, erratic emotions and an inability to apply reason to reality.

Western psychiatric benchmarks don’t mean much in the Muslim world where witchcraft is a major problem, Jewish conspiracy theories abound and genies are responsible for psychiatric problems. Killing your daughter or just non-Muslims in general is socially approved behavior. The Muslim world has fundamentally different social norms than we do. And that means very different concepts of sanity.

Misattributing Muslim terrorism to madness is convenient, but meaningless. It’s a way for us to avoid dealing with the difficult questions posed by Islam. And that avoidance is also a form of insanity.

Another fine column by Greenfield. With a wonderful "punch line": It’s a way for us to avoid dealing with the difficult questions posed by Islam. And that avoidance is also a form of insanity." And the insanity is contagious and not limited to misdiagnosing Islam. Look at Obama's blanket bathroom decree, issued today, with noncompliance punishable by lawsuits and fiscal blackmail. Another compelling reason to get the government out of education -- and out of our bathrooms!

Edward Cline said...

Islam has its own policy of madness. Under Obama, America has been subjected to his own deliberate policy of madness for the last eight years. But “madness,” under the Obama regime, may soon be declared a disparaging term for the “psychologically different” or “mental content diverse.” One more thing: Islam causes Muslims to be born “mad.” Obama’s aim is to drive us mad, and to take another victory lap. Never doubt that he knows what he is doing. Obama is not “mad.” His malice knows no bounds when it comes to destroying this country. It’s death by a thousand cuts.

Thanks! Islam attracts and rewards/reinforces the insane for their crazy behavior. Also, those born into it tend to be crazier than loons. Lots more to be said but my head is too foggy at the moment :)

The U.S. Constitution limits government power so as not to transgress the rights of U.S. Citizens. How is it a right of any foreigner to immigrate? The government may allow immigration when the newcomer is a positive addition.

Can we please get over our own insanity of inviting the world's worst into our home?

Not surprisingly, one must be truly insane to believe in that utter nonsense called Islamic "religion."

Anonymous said...

I think the problem is even broader. Decades ago, the U.S. courts decided that trials were not for determining truth, but rather to give each side a 50/50 chance of winning regardless of the evidence.

That is the thinking that should be explicitly repudiated. The insanity defense should not be allowed at all.

Reject evil. Embrace truth. said...

The definition of insanity is to keep on doing/saying the same thing and expect a different result.

In taqiyyah... Islam spreads lies to the infidel as part of its jihad to dominate.
First it was, Islam is the religion of peace...after so many terrorist massacres even the left wing media could t sustain that argument since they were being laughed at made irrelevant.
Now it's the insanity plea. Eventually that argument will fall as well.
The constant terrorists attacks means all roads lead back to the Quran.
Who knows, maybe the MSM and lefty brigade may even read it and come to their senses.

Frau Katze said...

The usual legal definition of criminally insane involves inability to tell right from wrong. For example, the perp might have been hearing voices telling him to kill someone.

But with Islam we have a new question: what is right and wrong? Seems like Islam has a whole different set of rules. One thing I've noticed: there were two cases I recall involving killing other Muslims (the burning by ISIS of the Jordanian pilot and the Tsliban blowing up a school and killing children). These cases seemed to have upset even some hardcore Islamists. In both cases the perps backed up their action with references to some centuries old case.

Actual efforts to purge this nasty behaviour from Islam seem rare: the odd reformist (likely living in the West). The pathetic lack of serious efforts to stop this type of ghastly behaviour speaks very poorly of Islam and its adherents.

They're not insane unfortunately... this is all deliberate and they know exactly what theyre allowing to happen. Its the unmaking of civilized modern society by the powerful and controlling elite

hmmm said...

next will come the claim that muslims are the real victims and need special protection from an islamophoic backlash that never materializes in reality

hmmm said...

i would say it's not the questions posed by islam that people are avoiding, it's the islamic doctrines mandating hate, violence and death that will lead to the destruction of the West.

Mr. Greenfield,

I live in Boston, Massachusetts. There was recently a "mentally ill" man, Arthur DaRosa, who went on a stabbing spree with a knife within the last week.

He may be mentally ill, but if you look at his picture (in the Daily Mail), you will see he has an Islamic beard. He looks to be a convert to Islam.

Do you have any information about this incident that connects it to Islam? I can see only rumors and suspicion on the web.

Thank you.

A simpleton shouts allahu barrack or something and kaboom. The root cause? Climate change. Nobody blinks an eye. Who is mental now?

I know few who can pierce the heart of an issue like Daniel Greenfield!

Seems to me this insanity-is-the-new-normal folly is only a symptom not just the manifestation of a disorder. We are watching, in real time, the end of an era.

muslims: Atavistic adherents of the prophet of baal

Ah, yes. The famous "He made me do it, your honor" excuse. That did not use to wash in the old days. But these days, all you have to do is say that 'he' is Allah and you get off with a medical whitewash and a prescription for tranquilizers.

In a sentient, normal world that would be the ultimate form of madness. In today's world it's multiculturalism and religious tolerance.

Sic transit gloria mundi. IOW, this world sucks.

Seems Islam itself could be declared a psychiatric disorder, rendering the patient prone to violent and self-destructive behaviour. It should be in the DSM. And every mosque should have a locked ward.

Recently there was an amateur art contest in the Netherlands, and people were invited to create a work of art depicting the current era of multiculturalism in Europe — a depiction of their experience in the modern ‘melting pot’. This was the winner:

The morality of the left extols putting the lives of our loved ones at risk by tolerance of violence. Our beloved, esteemed and peaceful citizens deserve protection from such vermin. The vermin and the left have demonstrated why their benefit of doubt is exhausted.

You've defined the problem, Daniel. What is the solution?
Looks like mass madness prevails in America and you will elect an obviously venal, lying, criminal, Alinsky-trained woman as your next President.The destruction of what's left of Western civilization will continue a lookpace.

Our governing authorities have succumbed to Stockholm Syndrome. In the name of political correctness they are putting us all at risk.

or................

The governing authorities at the very top have converted to Islam both here and in Europe

I've done multiple pieces on the topic long before it went national.

“You may find nobility in the savage,
but he is only interested in killing you.”
SOURCE: Commander Tuvok in Star Trek: Voyager

Fundamentalist Islam is targeting African Americans in an attempt to bypass security profiling that would normally draw attention to terrorist operations. This approach takes advantage of any resentment toward the white establishment and provides Fundamentalist Islam with terrorists who do not fit the usual profiles.

Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri, number-two man in Al Qaeda, has stated publicly: “I want blacks in America to know that we are waging jihad to lift oppression from all mankind.”

What Zawahiri does not say is that Mohammed disliked the black race immensely and referred to them as “raisin heads” several times in the Hadith (1:662; 9:256). Throughout the Hadith, blacks are also referred to abeds, which means “black” in Arabic, and is also synonymous with “slave” or “filth”. In fact, Arab Muslims have enslaved blacks for 1,400 years, and the black slave trade is still thriving in the Sudan and Mauritania.

In examining the relationship between blacks and Islam, readers will be surprised to find that throughout history, Islam has placed blacks on the same level as barn animals. Moreover, the barn is where most enslaved blacks are relegated after they are kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam or die.

Even if they accept yet promote the media promoted "fact" that these Terrorists were mentally ill, or insane, one must question why we don't see so many mentally ill terrorist acts with other world religions......It seems that not a single day goes by without another Mentally ill Islamist Psycho (or group of psychos) engage in a terrorist act....Conclusion ??? Yet if you dare to comment otherwise you are also labeled "Islamophobic" another mental illness promoted by the media....hence, ANYTHING to do with Islam if you are for it or against it is tied with mental illness....

Anonymous said...

I haven't seen "Muslim" as a diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. So until the Psychiatric community puts it in there as a bona fide diagnosis, then maybe we shouldn't accept that "Islamist" behavior is a sign of mental illness.
