Oh, wait, M'Hamed CHETTALI wasn't joking, was he?

Islam, and modernity do not belong in the same sentence.

"It is time that the West, especially the US, takes notice of these developments and realizes the importance of reconciliation,..."

The implication of that being that the problems they create are our fault, and that we must solve them. They make a mess, and demand that we clean it up. That's the behavior of a sociopath, only in this case there seem to be 10's of millions of them.

It's exactly the same game that one of the Danish Imams is playing, he's willing to accept 1/3 of the blame, and he wants Denmark to seize this golden opportunity to engage in constructive dialogue with, ...who? Which of the rioting, embassy burning, murdering savages should the start with first?

Dr. Jamshid Ibrahim is only too right when he says they suffer from "Chronic Mental Disorder."

Actually, "sociapath" is inadequate to describe the worst of them. "Antisocial Personality Disorder" is really the appropriate term.

"The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (American Psychiatric Association, 1994, pp. 649-650) describes Antisocial Personality Disorder as a pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three (or more) of the following:

failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest;

deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure;

impulsivity or failure to plan ahead;

irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults;

reckless disregard for safety of self or others; .

consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations;

lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another"

for details, see:
They give excellent in-depth insights into how this pathology relates to Islam.


And you can't deal with a pathology like this without meds, counseling, and most importantly they have to realize they have a problem.

We have a long way to go, folks.
