Therein lies the rub. Muslims cannot be taken seriously or rationally. Islam is good and bad, violent and peaceful, all things to all people. The koran says "Peace " except when it says "Kill infidels and jews", such duality of thought leads to mental disorder and weakens the "Self" by introducing a confused and confusing mental picture of the world. Islam, of course, encourages this mental disorder, because it leaves the individual open to easy manipulation.

One of the many misleading propositions of Islamism is the supposed angst regarding suicide-murder by Muslims. The notion that these demented people are acting out the grand design of "The god" is a prime example of a mental disorder . Muslims, like all those drawn to simplistic and cultish ideologies, have mental health issues. Women wearing head scarfs, with woolen full length coats in 100 degree heat is not religious, its a symptom of mental health issues. We see these pathetic people on the streets, bundled up in coats and sweaters, with scarfs with their possessions in bags and carts. We feel sympathy and pathos because we know that the world in her mind is a distortion. So it is with Muslim women who are so devoid of the "Self" that any display of individualism has been taken away by the "The god".

The fact that rejecting this demonic ideology can be a death sentence leaves little wonder why so many hapless people, forced by birth or circumstance to submit to an undefined, remote, nonpersonal "The god" declare themselves to be "Muslim". Given the freedom to chose, people would abandon this Islamic thing wholesale.
