Study: Radical Islamists Actually Have Extensive Knowledge of Islam

An Islamic theologian at the University of Vienna has conducted a study of radical Islamists proving that many have an extensive knowledge of Islam despite mainstream claims that radical Islamists have little understanding of their own religion.

In his new 310-page study of 29 radical Islamists, Islamic theologian Ednan Aslan claims religion plays a far larger role in the actions of jihadists than economic factors and frustration with society, Die Welt reports.

“Regardless of their religious knowledge, a radicalised person sees in theology an offer that gives meaning and structure to their lives,” Aslan claims.

    Of course they have an extensive knowledge of Islam!
    Just think about it for a second.
    They are FIXATED on a religion, obsessed with it to the point they are willing to cut people’s heads off and blow themselves up for it.
    Do you for one moment think that they haven’t studied the Koran and all the Hadiths 9-ways-of-Sunday?
    I guarantee you that these koranimals know Islam better than 90% of Christians know Christianity.
    They live and breath it!
    It is everything to them and there is nothing else in their lives.

      Or at least they really, really know the bits that justify their actions.

      The misconception is that they act from ignorance when the horrific truth is they act from islamic enlightenment. This revelation if accepted would destroy the lefts worldview. So they won’t.
