Dr Pipes, Dhimmi No More and readers,

There you are the very intense video I was talking about this early morning. I would have loved that Yasha would have gotten deeper into his family issues. But I can feel that it is still very hard for him to talk about it. And actually, because of his childhood wounds, we have all the answers we needed. What matters, in the end, is that it significantly and adversely impacted on his development.


Look at the psychological process that this man went through. Being brought up in an Islamic environment cannot be healthy by any means, and I see people every day suffering from this. This experience is not an isolated case. I will always repeat it. When he says "Islam is full of evil, it it is stupid and it is meaningless with all respects to those who believe in it", I got goosebumps. His realisation is very well described. Listen up. For what we are discussing today, I think it well worth watching til the end.

I felt very emotional after listening to him. I don't know what you guys may think, but it touched me. And it takes a lot of courage to confess you abused your partners and that you suffered from all those disorders and drug dependency.

In short, he sort of overcame his Narcissistic Personality Disorder and the rest of his emotional issues and mental issues because he became aware of them. Having the view from someone who once was a narcissist is very valuable for those like me who try to help the victims of this abuse. And, of course, for those who suffered from it.

About the movement he was into, I couldn't remember well this morning, but it was into the Egyptian Revolution of 2011, and became the leader of the April 6th Youth Movement.

In short, if you deny Islam, you are out. Because if you go deeper into it, you then cannot submit to it. There is no way.
