Does Islam Cause Mental Illness?

With resumed violent riots in France, the Saudi Arabian woman who was recently convicted of having been gang-raped by seven men and has been sentenced by the Islamic Shari’a court to 200 lashes with a whip (a virtual death sentence) and 6-months in prison—assuming she survives the beating—and the case of Muslims calling for the execution of British teacher in Sudan Gillian Gibbons (who allowed her students to name the classroom teddy bear Muhammad) the insanity occupying the Islamic world is once again slapping the rest of the world in its face. Although she was convicted by the fundamentalist Islamic court system of “insulting Islam” and sentenced to jail time, over 10,000 Sudanese Muslims have taken to the streets and are reported to still be screaming for Gibbons’ death with: “No tolerance! Execution! Kill her, kill her by firing squad!”

Apparently not satisfied with last year’s worldwide riots over the infamous Muhammad cartoons and the multiple videos of Islamist beheadings—not to mention the genocide of non-Muslims that is still being perpetrated in the Darfur area of Sudan—portions of the Muslim word are at it once again. As these types of extraordinarily brutal, sadistic and bizarre behaviors do not occur within the Jewish or Christian communities of the world, I believe that I must ask: Is it Islam, itself, that is causing this mental illness amongst its adherents?

In the mainstream reportage of these continuing and violent incidents, once again the bulk of the leftist media, the same media that vilifies virtually everything democracies affect to protect their citizens and bring down these regimes of terrorism, are offering “no opinion” on these recent Muslim atrocities. Note: Unfortunately, not all of the recent so-called extremism in the Muslim world is coming strictly from the Islamist factions. But, it does appear that an increasing number of non-Muslims are finally beginning to realize that violence against them is built into and commanded by the Surah verses (the latter stanzas) of the Qur’an.

Getting back to the Gibbons’ debacle, an ostensibly mainstream Muslim cleric Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karour in Khartoum worked to incense Muslims in his Mosque on Friday with: “This is an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad!” The fact that the children chose the teddy bear’s name still seems to have escaped the attention of this cleric and others in these repressive Islamic systems. Instead a favorite theme on Islamic television continues to be ‘the proper way to beat one’s wife’. In the below video link, women are compared to camels and donkeys and Muslim men are instructed not to beat their wives in the face but, to beat them “where it won’t leave marks.” Whew! That’s helpful…unless you’re a woman. Note: Western feminists still continue to ignore this and other Islamic atrocities committed against their “sisters.” It’s mind-boggling that they still pretend that none of this is actually occurring. Or, could it be that as it doesn’t directly impact them, these “humane” feminists simply don’t care about women half a world away? I vote for the latter.

Spurred on by its Imams, the Muslim world is becoming more and more violent each and every day. And it is now creating “insulting” situations when they have not occurred. Like the Leftists, Muslims attack before they are assaulted and then claim ‘victimhood’. Note: This is another example of homicidal children killing their parents and then asking for sympathy because they’re now orphans.

Like the recent riots in France—brought on by two Muslim teens running a red light with their motorbike and then hitting a police car—when these immigrants to Europe have nothing else to fall back on, they create false situations themselves. In this instance, Muslim “youth” in France torched cars, libraries and homes then claimed—even though it was the fault of the two teens—that the police were to blame!

So, I ask again: Is it in the interpretation or does Islam—itself—cause mental illness? Take a look at what’s happening around the world and draw own conclusion.
