Is Jihadism a Cult?

“We are facing something closer to a cult network than an organized global adversary. Like many cults through history, the Muslim terrorists thrive by channeling and perverting the idealism of young people.”

  • Islam is clearly a cult.

    The number one defining rule of a cult is not being able to quit without having to worry about being killed by another cult member.

    And that is the number one rule of Islam. Execution for apostasy.

    Whoever wrote this piece has no sense of history nor does the author know anything about Islam’s founder, Mohammed.

    A book I read on cults was one on the Hari Krishnas, called “Monkey on a Stick” . From that I realized no matter what the cult’s name is, the results are the same.

    islam is a cult and attracts the same sorts of violent mental midgets with inferiority complexes.

    No not really. Cult members lose the ability to understand they can leave. Muslims aren’t captives, they happily want to join in because it gives them a reason to kill people. The SS wasn’t a cult, the Khmer Rouge wasn’t a cult. Islam isn’t a cult. It’s a psychotic transnational movement
