Sudden Jihad

Sudden jihad syndrome was coined by Daniel Pipes, an excellent scholar. Jihad, such as the recent attack in Chattanooga seem to done by “nice” people. How do we explain “nice Muslims” who commit jihad? Some nice Muslims are simply do not follow much of Islam. They are Islam, light. Then there are other nice Muslims who know all of Islam, including jihad, who are pleasant because they need to live in our society. But deep within, they have the heart of a jihadist which can manifest suddenly.

How can we tell the difference? Are they really a friend or a deceiver? There is no way to know the heart of a Muslim.

    “The heart of man is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it?”

    And it’s been true for at least 4000 years since its publication.

    Why would any normal person want to be friends with a chopper? Islam is the most effective system of mind-control yet established, with its wacky promises of sex in heaven and lots of negative reinforcement for misbehavers.

    Even apparently well adjusted followers may go off due to the jihad programming, so they are not promising immigrants, much less friends.

    This is definitely my impression, and people who’ve lived in Muslim countries and know far more about it than I do bear me out on this. There probably is no moderate Islam, but there are a lot of Muslims who just aren’t very Muslim.

    I don’t have a problem with those people. It can, however, be tricky to know who they are (unless you happen to know an individual very well, of course). It’s also good to remember that the more Muslims, the more radical, because the devout Muslims make it their business to police the “community”, especially the women. If there are a bunch of other Muslims around, just not bothering much becomes harder and harder.

    Young Muslims, especially men, going through some sort of adolescent or early adulthood crises can radicalize on the turn of a dime. Meaning through violence and all that.

    • It’s a matter of numbers and in the west, purposeful segregation.

    There are NO good totalitarians. ALL muslims are totalitarians.

    what do you mean ‘there’s no way to know the heart of a muslim’???? the easiest way to know the heart of any muslim is to check out the koran. what an idiotic, irresponsible thing to write.
