NOT one to be swayed by this and that psycho babble…as if…akin to the so-called “twinkie” psychological defense…know that said nonsense doesn’t fly at this site. Never will. Personal responsibility IS a big deal at this end, even if one’s lot in life has been less than fortunate. Never mind, we all have our personal burdens and crosses to bear. Just buck up. Rise above your circumstances, whatever they may be.
THAT being said, when it comes to Islamic culture, its doctrine and the intersection with barbarism, well, a host of pathological psycho dramas are authentic and always bubbling under the surface. Volatile and highly explosive. An understanding of these truths is not commensurate with being taken in by the babbling of excuse-making. World’s apart. The aforementioned is deeply and culturally embedded. Much of it traces back to the beginning of their upbringing, that is, via Muslim society’s ingrained twisted mother-child relationship. This cultural pattern holds true for both male and female children. By duly exploring Islam & Blood – a policy paper this investigative journalist and Jihadi expert had the privilege to work on – its underpinnings can be found. Imbibe it.
CONSEQUENTIALLY, couple said abnormal rearing/roots with a “blame and shame” culture and all (mental and physical) hell breaks loose. A firestorm of pent-up fury is at the fore. Significantly, much of it plays out through sexual orgasmic relief, when blowing themselves and “the other” up. This is not a bogeyman’s tale. It is the G-d’s honest truth.
Let us now turn our full attention to Arab/Islamic culture.
This piece by David Gutmann is one of the best psychological analyses of shame and the Arab psyche I have read, and because it deals with something so critically important, I am going to quote a rather large excerpt:
The Arab world is suffering a crisis of humiliation. Their armies are routed not only by Americans, but also by tiny, Jewish Israel; and as Arthur Koestler once remarked, the Arab world has not, in the last 500 years or so, produced much besides rugs, dirty postcards, elaborations on the belly-dance esthetic (and, of course, some innovative terrorist practices). They have no science to speak of, no art, hardly any industry save oil, very little literature, and portentous music which consists largely of lugubrious songs celebrating the slaughter of Jews….
I agree here with Dr. Sanity. Gutmann is trying to get Islam off the hook; but it’s been on the hook of honor-shame dynamics from the latter part of Muhammad’s career, when he turned to Jihad as a way to punish and humiliate unbelievers and bring honor to believers. The “hi-jacking” of monotheism by honor-shame concerns is not unique to Islam, although unlike Christianity, Islam has yet to emerge from it. (It’s when Christianity emerges from it in the course of the last two or so centuries that democracy first emerged.) If you believe that a) your religious truth is proved by its visible superiority (i.e., your religious tradition has honor and the others have shame), so that b) your God is honored by your dominion, then your monotheism will be intolerant, imperialist, and claim a monopoly on salvation (i.e., everyone needs to be “us” in order to be saved)…..
AND for added “justifiable” barbarism, mix in the Koranic mandate to satiate Allah, then an uncontrollable explosion barely contextualizes the outcome. This is what westerners are witnessing, day after day, all over the world. The combustible mix. At the very least, understanding these core dynamics will be one less question mark hanging over the clash of civilizations we are in. Yes, we are.
Raped…then slaughtered…all in the name of Allah!
NOW, let us wade further into the Islamic muck, even though its stench is overbearing. It can’t be helped, as odious as it is. Follow along….
Muslim terrorists wage jihad against infidels chiefly in response to injunctions communicated via the Koran and Islam’s other authoritative texts. There are, however, also some noteworthy psychological and anthropological factors in play. Of particular interest is the relationship between the widespread physical and sexual abuse of children in Muslim society, and Islamic terrorism.
In her book, The Sheik’s New Clothes: the Psychoanalytic Roots of Islamic Suicide Terrorism, the Minnesota-based psychoanalyst and Arabist Nancy Kobrin and her Israeli co-author, counter-terrorism expert Yoram Schweitzer, describe barbarous family and clan dynamics in which Muslim children, both boys and girls, are routinely raped, orally and anally, by male relatives; where infant males are sadistically over-stimulated by being masturbated; where boys between the ages of 7 and 12 are publicly and traumatically circumcised; where girls are clitoridectomized; and where women are seen as the source of all shame and dishonor and are, accordingly, treated very badly.
According to Dr. Kobrin, both male and female infants and children are raised by mothers who themselves have been debased and traumatized. As such, all children are forever psychologically “contaminated” by the humiliated yet all-powerful mother. Kobrin further explains that Arab and Muslim boys seek to disassociate themselves from their mothers in spectacularly savage ways; that, on a deep unconscious level, they may also wish to remain merged with the source of the contamination; and that suicide bombers act out this conflict when they kill their presumably most hated enemies, the Israeli Jews, who may actually function as substitutes or scapegoats for an even more primal enemy that is both loved and hated: Woman.
Phyllis Chesler, professor emerita of psychology and women’s studies at the College of Staten Island (CUNY), asserts that widespread child sexual abuse in Muslim culture leads to the development of paranoid, highly traumatized, and revenge-seeking adults; that Islam’s polygamous, patriarchal culture also leads to highly charged fraternal competition for paternal favor and inheritance; and that this dynamic can set the stage for entire families and clans to remain locked in revenge-fueled mortal combat for generations.
Walid Shoebat, an ex-PLO terrorist who ultimately renounced terrorism and converted to evangelical Christianity, confirms the widespread sexual abuse of both boys and girls in Palestinian society. “It is a strange society,” he says. “Homosexuality is forbidden but if you’re the penetrator, not the penetrated, it’s okay.” Adds Shoebat: “If you’re a teenage boy with no hair on your legs, other boys your age will pinch your butt and tease you. Once, I saw a class of clothed teenage boys sexualize their gymnastics exercizes. And once, on a hiking trip, I saw a line of shepherd boys waiting for their turn to sodomize a five-year-old boy. It was unbelievable.”
According to Shoebat, Muslim teenage boys prey upon younger children; older male relatives prey upon pre-adolescent and adolescent boys and girls. There are many anecdotal accounts about the male preference for anal sex, even within marriage, either as a form of birth control or as a preferred homosexual practice.
MIND you, does anyone wonder why women, even very young girls, are dictated by Islamist leaders (“modesty” patrols) to cover themselves from head to toe? Gleaned within this site’s forthright knowledge base, doesn’t it make “sense” that the female “objects” of both hatred and carnal desire must be shielded from their eyes, lest Islam’s males “lose control” on a non-stop basis? What are they, animals in perpetual heat? Asked and answered.Think about it.
WHICH leads us to “honor killings”…an unheard of “acceptable” phenomenon within ANY other so-called religion.
FOR added intellectual and practical weight, please listen to the following video very carefully, as if your lives depend on it. It does. The (mis)treatment of women is fully explored, plus other anti-civilized aspects of Islam.

AS to the Madonna complex, well, most of us understand the indelible scars perpetual abuse sears upon ones psyche; its life-long impact. It is unlike the made up out of whole cloth blathering – the “devil made me do it” lie.
SO just like their female counterparts, men who are violated from childhood onward and have nowhere to turn to for help, are ripe to become ticking time bombs. And when sexual over-stimulation/violation – from infancy onward – is viewed as an “acceptable norm” within cultural dynamics, is it any wonder that Islamic men (and women) are ready and willing to explode themselves (and take others down with them) for the sake of (their pagan) Allah, whose Koran promises otherwise forbidden delights as gifts for their “martyrdom”?
- “But do not think of those that have been slain in God’s cause as dead. Nay, they are alive! With their Sustainer have they their sustenance. They are very happy with the reward they received from Allah (for dying as a shaheed) and they rejoice for the sake of those who have not joined them (i.e., have not yet died for Allah).” (Quran 3:169-70)
- “Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure” (Quran 61:4).
- “Allah has purchased the believers, their lives and their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden [of paradise]. They fight in Allah’s Cause, and they slay and are slain; they kill and are killed . . . it [paradise] is the promise of Allah to them.” (Quran 9:111)
What makes a young Muslim man (or woman) strap a high explosive vest on his chest and blow himself to smithereens—in Israel, for example? They say, it is for establishing a better world. It is against Israeli “occupation.” Is it his frustration? Is it the $25,000 the family receives for Jews successfully murdered? Or is it the Quran [Koran] … the holy book of Islam!
Years ago, the Prophet Mohammed cleverly devised a devilish scheme to bribe Arabs into committing hideous crimes by promising them materialistic things which they couldn’t obtain in the harsh desert. The Quran exhort Muslims to sacrifice themselves in suicide-bombing style in order to gain access to Islam’s Paradise—a better world in the next life:
[Quran 9:111] Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain:
The Islamic Paradise contained six important items: beautiful virgins, young boys, water, wine, fruits and wealth.
1. VIRGINS (HOURIS)
Mohammed knew that sex would sell very well among the group of his lecherous followers who were motivated to fight battles by the promise of sex slaves and booty. Once the followers got to heaven, they could pleasure themselves with endless sexual encounters with ‘Houris’ (beautiful young virgins)… 72 virgins girls and 28 young pre-pubescent boys. Mohammed goes one step further and expands the promise of virgins to include a free sex market where there is no limit of the number of sexual partners. Women and young boys are on display as if in a fruit market where you can choose the desired ripeness. Allah is indeed merciful!
Relevant verses from the Koran and quotes from the Hadiths:
As for the righteous, they shall surely triumph. Theirs shall be gardens and vineyards, and high-bosomed virgins for companions: a truly overflowing cup.
…They will sit with bashful, dark-eyed virgins, as chaste as the sheltered eggs of ostriches.
…Yes and We shall wed them to dark-eyed houris. (beautiful virgins)
…They shall recline on couches ranged in rows. To dark-eyed houris (virgins) we shall wed them…
In them will be bashful virgins neither man nor Jinn will have touched before. Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny ?”
Virgins as fair as corals and rubies. Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny ?”
…We created the houris (the beautiful women) and made them virgins, loving companions for those on the right hand.. ”
“In each there shall be virgins chaste and fair… Dark eyed virgins sheltered in their tents whom neither man nor Jin will have touched before..
YET, those who prefer to veer away from such unpleasantness and yuckyness, ask yourselves: in the case of worldwide jihad, IS ignorance bliss? And can you afford NOT to understand and internalize said cultural, quasi-religious dynamics?
THE above truth-telling shall, at the very least, set us free from their twisted psycho drama. It may even assist in saving some lives. Knowledge IS power.
