in response to reader comment: All civilian population is innocent but invading forces can be attacked

"Muslim Personality Disorder" is a treatable illness. Delusions, self aggrandisement, and an unrealistic expectation of dogmatic assertions being taken as fact, and in progressive cases resulting in suicidal ideation, define the syndrome. This man sees multi national forces of liberation as an "Invading force".as response to this "Invading force" , his mythology demands violence. It is violence to sustain a mythology predicated on violence as the primary tool of sperading the mythology. The conclusion can only be that a devout and pious Moslem, simply by following the dogma presented to him, may result in anti social behaviors which taken, in total ,constitute a danger to himself and others, an ,in fact ,does disorder the personality.
