Quite true, because "Islam" is nothing. It does not exist, it is a myth, a mental construction , There is no thing as "Islam". There are individuals who have self identified themselves as "Moslem" or "Muslim" . Thers are real and actual people. Internalization of the mythology may produce unwanted behaviors. Hostility toward non initiates, a deluded sense of grandious world domination, ie domination of all non "Muslims", even to suicidal ideation/ and mass murder. The syndrome may accurately be called "Muslim Personality Disorder". The individual may act out in inappropriate settings, such as the flying "Imams". And rationalize mass murder/ suicide by disordered thinking.
