The good Muslim president of Iran is typical of a cultist. Deriving his cult from the mythology which glorifies and elevates the 'Martyrdom cult' . The mythology constructs a conflict which leads to the "Muslim Personality Disorder" The human instinct for self preservation is sublimated to the mythological dogma of self destruction or "Martyrdom", so long as it kills infidels,Jews, or as in Pakistan and Iraq, Afganistan, political opponents, it is rationalized by a "Martyrdom operation" an obvious euphanism for murder/suicide. This is encouraged by the mythology,and is acted on by disorderd Muslim personalities wherever the mythology is sufficiently internalized. The referece to "Christian " is a patheic attempt to draw comparisons where none exist, as with the Jews, Hindus, or any other civilized mythology. There have been and still exist many "Death cults" this is but the largest and currently most active.
