Nicolai Sennels: Psychology: Why Islam creates monsters
SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 8:07 AM BY NICOLAI SENNELS
“Psychopathic people and behaviour are found within all cultures and religions. But one tops them all — by many lengths. The daily mass killings, terror, persecutions and family executions committed by the followers of Islam are nauseating, and the ingenuity behind the attacks — always looking for new and more effective ways of killing and terrorising people — is astonishing: hijacking jumbo jets and flying them into skyscrapers, hunting unarmed and innocent people with grenades and automatic rifles in shopping malls, planting bombs in one’s own body, using model airplanes as drones,attaching large rotating blades to pickup trucks and using them as human lawnmowers, killing family members with acid or fire, hanging people publicly from cranes in front of cheering crowds, etc. It makes one ask oneself: what creates such lack of empathy and almost playful and creative attitude towards murdering perceived enemies?
This is a question for psychologists like me.
Studying the Muslim mind:
Nobody is born a mass murderer, a rapist or a violent criminal. So what is it in the Muslim culture that influence their children in a way that make so relatively many Muslims harm other people?
As a psychologist in a Danish youth prison, I had a unique chance to study the mentality of Muslims. 70 percent of youth offenders in Denmark have a Muslim background. I was able to compare them with non-Muslim clients from the same age group with more or less the same social background. I came to the conclusion that Islam and Muslim culture have certain psychological mechanisms that harm people’s development and increase criminal behaviour.
I am, of course, aware that Muslims are different, and notall Muslims follow the Quran’s violent and perverted message and theirprophet’s equally embarrassing example. But as with all other religions, Islamalso influences its followers and the culture they live in.
One could talk about two groups of psychological mechanisms,that both singly and combined increase violent behaviour. One group is mainlyconnected with religion, which aims at indoctrinating Islamic values inchildren as early as possible and with whatever means necessary, includingviolence and intimidation. One can understand a Muslim parent’s concern abouthis offspring’s religious choices, because the sharia orders the death penaltyfor their children, should they pick another religion than their parents. Theother group of mechanisms are more cultural and psychological. These culturalpsychological mechanisms are a natural consequence of being influenced by areligion like Islam and stemming from a 1,400 year old tribal society with verylimited freedom to develop beyond what the religion allows.”
Classical brainwashing methods in the upbringing
“Brainwashing people into believing or doing thingsagainst their own human nature — such as hating or even killing innocents theydo not even know — is traditionally done by combining two things: pain andrepetition. The conscious infliction of psychological and physical sufferingbreaks down the person’s resistance to the constantly repeated message.
Totalitarian regimes use this method to reform politicaldissidents. Armies in less civilized countries use it to create ruthlesssoldiers, and religious sects all over the world use it to fanaticize theirfollowers.
During numerous sessions with more than a hundred Muslimclients, I found that violence and repetition of religious messages areprevalent in Muslim families.
Muslim culture simply does not have the same degree of understanding of human development as in civilized societies, and physical pain and threats are therefore often the preferred tool to raise children. This is why so many Muslim girls grow up to accept violence in their marriage, and why Muslim boys grow up to learn that violence is acceptable. And it is the main reason why nine out of ten children removed from their parents by authorities in Copenhagen are from immigrant families. The Muslim tradition of using pain and intimidation as part of disciplining children are also widely used in Muslim schools — also in the West.
Combined with countless repetitions of Quranic verses in Islamic schools and families, all this makes it very difficult for children to defend themselves against being indoctrinated to follow the Quran, even if it is against secular laws, logic, and the most basic understanding of compassion.”
