Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Is this true, does anyone have a copy of Quaran to confirm this?

As part of the dogma of the mythology, the 'Muslim' may obtain paradise by following the "Pillars" of 'Islam'. They include; praying 5 times a day, giving alms to the poor, and making a pilgrimage to Mecca. However, and this is the worst part, only by 'Martyrdom' can a 'muslim' be in the presence of the deity, AL Lah.

The implications of this is huge. Only by being killed in the cause of advancing the mythology itself can the pious individual come into the presence of their deity. Is there any wonder why the pious 'Muslim' seeking to be in the presence of his god in paradise will blow himself up to kill the infidels,Jews, et al?

I contend that this produces a conflict within the human person that causes a distortion of the personality, unique to ' Muslims' , a danger to themselves and others, compliant with maladaptave behaviors, sufficient to be labeled A "Muslim Personality Disorder" , and further, the internalization of the mythology itself is a causation.
