Regarding my contention that it is the dogma of the mythology itself contained in the 'canon' of literature which distorts and conflicts with the psycological imparative of preservation of the "Self" and thus creates psycological conflict sufficient ,in many individuals, to cause "Inflexible and maladaptave " behavior. For example, the Hadith vol 2, book23, #329 which clearly says that '...the martyr excels all' and , further the martyr ...'receives privilages otherwise unattainable' as well as 'dar al-shuda' or the house of martyrs which says that .'.the martyr is the greatest act of worship possible, for ONLY HE WITNESSES GOD HIMSELF' .

One must presume you are at least aware of these core declarations of the mytholgy, and that your attempt to intimidate with made up phrases like 'islamaphobe' which is an obvious attempt to discredit. Actually, one has good reason to fear islamic mythhology, As we see with sickening regularity the conditions under which human being are forced to exist in that social construct. Be that as it may, the point is that those who are self identified as 'Muslim' have internalized a mythology which advocates, encourages, even demands the taking of human life to gain access to the deity, and this aspect of the mythology may, in fact distort the personality resulting in a unique condition of "Muslim Personality Disorder". Have you ever considered an act of 'martyrdom' to defend or advance your belief system? If so, where does that impulse come from if not from the mythology itself.
