"...And speaking of "more deranged" among them, can you really distinguish the degree of derangement among them. "

Good point. I probably misused the word there though. 'Deranged' implies insanity. What these criminals have done is not insane in the strict sense - it was a result of psychopathic tendencies. They planned the attacks very carefully over a long period of time and were well equipped. They had awareness of what they were doing but were totally unaware human beings, driven by a sense of vengeance and hatred and were blind to the evil of their own actions. Of course a court of law would find they were criminally liable for their actions.

Why were they so blind? What textbook were they following that allowed them to justify their actions in their puny minds - to allow them to perceive themselves as action heroes fighting a just cause? It's a rhetorical question obviously - we know the answer.

Muslims must learn to find another fuel to run on rather than on the 50% superstition/50% emotion mix which has the habit of exploding at the worst times.

In relation to psychopathic behaviours, unfortunately :

"...In practice, mental health professionals rarely treat psychopathic personality disorders as they are considered untreatable and no interventions have proved to be effective"


But what the Mumbai gunmen exhibited is a classic case of another category of mental illness - sometimes referred to as MPD (Muslim Personality Disorder)

Notice that while the symptoms of a psychopathic personality include:

  • Grandiose sense of self-worth
  • Superficial charm
  • Criminal versatility
  • Reckless disregard for the safety of self or others
  • Impulse control problems
  • Irresponsibility
  • Pathological narcissism
  • Pathological lying
  • Shallow affect
  • Deceitfulness/manipulativeness
  • Aggressive or violent tendencies, repeated physical fights or assaults on others
  • Lack of empathy
  • Lack of remorse, indifferent to or rationalizes having hurt or mistreated others
  • A sense of extreme entitlement
  • Lack of or diminished levels of anxiety/nervousness and other emotions
  • Poor judgment, failure to learn from experience
  • Lack of personal insight
  • Failure to follow any life plan
, these criminals in Mumbai did show some concern for the safety of others - so we cannot use the term 'psychopaths' to describe them.

I make this point to give credit where credit is due. At one stage in the drama the gunmen asked a large group which people were Muslims - and people from Turkey, Pakistan and other Muslim countries came forward. This group was hurried up to safety on the top of the building before the gunmen opened fire on the defenceless people remaining below and then hurried along to shoot to kill any Europeans they could find - along with any Hindus who got in their way.

So, they did have some concern for the welfare of other people, but their concern was extremely selective. I suppose they are now expecting their 'Allah' to be grateful they showed such concern.

But look at it this way they've done wonders for their cause. Anybody who reads these pages who still has the slightest doubt what a wolf in sheep's clothing Islam is gets another chilling reminder. The outrage so far from western Muslims has been somewhat muted to say the very least. Strange, that.

I'm sure my making that remark in the last paragraph will prompt crocodile tears and some apologies from Muslims on this forum who read it. Yes, we know, "........but they were the 'bad' Muslims... we are the good Muslims...."

But such apologists will never admit that what causes this beyond sick behaviour is their belief in their 7th century Arabian treatise on terror.

How much blood has been spilled down through the ages - how much pain on so many levels by so many victims from so many countries? It has been going on for ages - and seems like it's building up to a crescendo in certain areas.

What does it take to alleviate this scourge on humanity? I don't know . The softly, softly approach defintiely does not work. It just gives them the chance to scheme and further increase their efforts to their ultimate aims - which is the establishment of dar Al Islam. That's what they want and if they follow their little green book - that's what they think they will get.

A good start would be a zero tolerance policy to any serious crime by Muslim immigrants otherwise instant deportation to their country of origin (their dar Al Islam) - with no allowances for cultural 'sensitivities' and differences, no special rights, no creeping Islamisation. There should be no Muslim immigration if they do not agree to abide by 100% of the laws of their host countries. In fact their citizenship contract should include a clause stating that they will agree not to proselytise their beliefs in their host countries - in the same way that Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries stifle proselytising non-Islamic faiths and other belief systems.

Of course they'd scream blue murder that they were being discriminated against - but the truth is they do not hesitate to always discriminate in their own favour . And it would be a small price to pay , knowing that at least your country would be relatively safe from further attacks.
