Maybe jihadis are motivated by the Qur’an’s injunction to Muslims to slay the idolaters wherever they find them (9:5) and to war against and subjugate Jews and Christians (9:29)? Pah! It’s discrimination! It’s inbreeding! The mainstream media and government authorities continue their never-ending search for the real cause of Islamic jihad terrorism, because the one thing that everyone knows is that it couldn’t be…the doctrines of Islamic jihad. “Psychologist critical of Muslim ‘inbreeding’ informed expert’s opinion on Khadr,” by Colin Perkel for The Canadian Press, October 27 (thanks to Chris):
GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba – A Danish psychologist who believes Muslims are raised to be aggressive and that inbreeding has damaged their genes informed a damning expert opinion of the risk Omar Khadr poses to public safety, court heard Wednesday.
Under cross-examination by defence lawyers, Dr. Michael Welner said he talked to Nicolai Sennels before coming to the conclusion that the Canadian-born Khadr was “highly dangerous” — an opinion he gave Tuesday on the first day of Khadr’s sentencing hearing.
Welner, a witness for the prosecution, said he admired Sennels for his work trying to help young Muslim inmates in Denmark and found him informative.
Sennels, who is based in Copenhagen, has written extensively on Muslims, including one article introduced into evidence Tuesday.
“If a Muslim does not react aggressively when criticized he is seen as weak, not worth trusting and he thus loses social status immediately,” Sennels wrote.
In another article, Sennels, 34, attributed a host of problems within the Islamic world to intermarriage among first cousins.
“Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1,400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool.”
Sennels has also stated that Muslim integration into western societies is not possible, a view Welner called “political.”…
Testifying for a second day, Welner found his credibility under attack as the defence hammered him for being selective in his depictions of Khadr.
Welner had testified on Tuesday that Khadr was only interested in the Qur’an, and had shown little interest in western literature.
However, during testy exchanges with defence lawyer Maj. Matthew Schwartz, Welner conceded Khadr had indicated little interest in the Qu’ran before being shipped to Guantanamo.
He also testified Khadr had in fact read books by South African President Nelson Mandela, U.S. President Barack Obama, and even romance writer Danielle Steele….
Oh, well, then! If he read books by Mandela, Obama, and Steele, then he couldn’t have been influenced by the Book of Peace!
“Discrimination, not Islam behind violent youths: FRA,” from Indian Express, October 27 (thanks to Fjordman):
Young Muslims are no more likely to be violent than non-Muslims, a report by the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) found on Wednesday, citing discrimination however as a key differentiating factor.
In a survey of 3,000 Muslim and non-Muslim youths in Britain, France and Spain, FRA found that young people across the board were more likely to turn to violence if they had suffered discrimination.
“Young people who are discriminated against and feel socially marginalised, and those who have been a victim of violence are more likely to use violence towards others,” noted FRA director Morten Kjaerum.
“There are no indications that Muslim youth are more or less likely to resort to actual violence than non-Muslims,” added the report, which was published today….
No indications, that is, other than a few thousand burned cars in Paris, and otherwise lethal gangs of “youths” all over Europe.
