in response to reader comment: talk with facts, simply making subjective arguments will not do.

Mental health is based on behavior. How people actually act. Of course the entire population of self identified "Muslims" are not afflicted with a personality disorder. However, those individuals whose distorted thoughts, a superority based on a piety, irrational hostility toward non "Muslims", commit suicide and mass murder in the process, do have a personality that is disordered because of their identification as "Muslim".

We see this behavior in no other group, we see no support for this behavior except from "Muslims" . One may deny the facts, one may obfuscate and distract , but the fact is that the more pious identification as a "Muslim" the greater the likelihood of a disordered personality. For example, the many reports of personality change when "Muslim" men return to a native "Muslim" country. There is no stigma in having a disorder. Civilized countries can treat the disorder with therapy, and in more severe cases, medicines. If you ,or some one you know are having suicidal or homicidal thoughts , feel hatred toward others, believe that killing will bring eternal rewards, that is disordered thinking...
