I recently came across an article that confirmed a long held suspicion of mine. The article titled Characteristics Associated with Cultic Groups – Revised, by Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D. is revealing to those willing to see islam as it really is, a death worshipping cult. What a minute I hear you saying, what do you mean as it really is? Islam is a religion of peace, the Kenyan has deemed it so, so what could be wrong there? Ah Grasshopper, again the pebble eludes you.
I have made some studies of islam. I do not claim expert status but expert status is not needed to understand what the practitioners of islam are saying. It certainly does not require expert status to understand islams predilection for persecution and murder. After reading the islamic holy book which I will not give the dignity of a name, it is clear that hate and persecution are the stock in trade of islam. Strip away all the “thees and thous” from islam and you are left with a combination street gang/cult.
Lalich and Langone state that they consider the patterns listed in their paper as analytical tools rather than diagnostic tools. I think these patterns diagnose cults quite well. They add that, “many members, former members, and supporters of cults are not fully aware of the extent to which members may have been manipulated, exploited, even abused.” That describes nearly every defender of islam I have ever heard. I except from that last sentence the many alleged muslim “leadership” and “rights” groups, they know about the manipulation, torture, rape and murder but pretty much don’t care.
So, lets compare the patterns listed by Lalich and Langone to islam.
The first pattern listed says, “The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.” Is there any doubt that this is a foundation of islam? Is not the killing of those who draw cartoons excessively zealous? How about murdering rape victims for having sex outside of marriage? Is that unquestioning commitment?
The second pattern listed says, “Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.” Change the should be punished to must be punished and you have islamic law. This brings to mind the story of the islamist mother who killed her seven year old son because he didn’t progress in his islamic studies as fast as she wanted him to. Islam does not allow dissent in any form, ever.
The third pattern listed says, “Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).” Sitting in quiet contemplation (meditation) is not a function of islam. The islamic school focuses virtually no attention on what we in the west would consider education. You don’t need to know how to read or write to detonate a bomb vest. The Madrasa’s function is to initiate its students into the world of hate and violence. Chanting and denunciation sessions they have down to a science.
The fourth pattern listed says, “The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry—or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).” Really? Do I have to explain this one? Can you say, burkas, dietary restrictions, muslim only zones, rules on how to beat your wife. All this evil and more is known as Sharia law.
The fifth pattern listed says, “The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).” Allah and his henchman Mohammed are so exalted that their authority is not allowed to be questioned, ever. The devout muslim has a religious duty to spread islam at any cost and by any means. Can you say Caliphate?
The sixth pattern says, “The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.” I will let the islamist respond to this one, “Kill all the Jews and non-believers.” What other “mainstream” religion do you know that teaches their children how to kill people?
The seventh pattern listed says, “The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).” When is the last time you heard about a mullah, imam or jihadi being prosecuted under islamic law for theft, assault, child abuse, rape, torture or murder? I thought not. In fact, under islamic law doing any of these things in the furtherance of islam is deemed praiseworthy. Can anyone remember the rape gangs that operated unopposed in England for fourteen years? (And don’t talk to me about the one or two people who may end up in jail over this. Thousands of muslims and their British enablers in the government will go scott free. The victims may never recover.)
The eighth pattern listed says, “The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members’ participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).” Can you say Taqiyya? For those do not know, Taqiyya is the islamic approved doctrine/process that allows a muslim to lie, cheat, steal and even deny his faith in his effort to infiltrate a group/country and further the spread of islam. The Kenyan little Barry is Americas foremost practitioner of Taqiyya.
The ninth pattern listed says, “The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.” Can you say honor killings? How about the death sentence for apostasy? Are you a homosexual, death is the only option under islam. What about chopping off the hands of a thief? Rape is a preferred method of intimidation and control. Islam is not a cult of subtlety.
The tenth pattern listed says, “Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.” The foundational tenant of islam is not that the individual should perfect himself and help his family to do the same so that they can be together in the afterlife, it is that the believer must advance islam by any means necessary. This includes sacrificing himself and his family should the opportunity present it self.
The eleventh pattern listed says, “The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.” The islamists tell you straight up, everyone must convert to islam. For those who refuse to convert islamic law provides only two options, slavery or death.
The twelfth pattern listed says, “The group is preoccupied with making money.” This is the best disguised tenant of islam. No imam or ayatollah would subject himself to the poverty he forces those under him to endure.
The thirteenth pattern listed says, “Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.” Islam doesn’t require an inordinate amount of time, it demands all of your time.
The fourteenth pattern listed says, “Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.” This basic tenant of islam is making a gruesome comeback. Islamists are torturing, raping and killing tens of thousands of men, women and children for no other reason than these poor souls are not muslim. This also applies to things. The muslims are destroying thousands of years of history because it is not muslim history.
The fifteenth pattern listed says, “The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.” This reminds me of the story I read not to long ago about a palistinian child who had received medical treatment in an Israeli hospital. The mother of the child said in an interview that she was glad her child had been saved and could not wait for the day when her child would strap on a bomb and kill Jews. She considers herself to be a devout muslim. I consider her mentally ill.
Sadly, all these tenants of islam have been successfully imported into the USA under the guise of tolerance. Dearborn, MI is well on its way to becoming a mini Iran within our borders. Why anyone should tolerate such behavior and attitudes is beyond me. Only the twisted intellectual gymnastics of your average liberal could justify the tolerance of such abhorrent behavior. Then again, liberals like muslims, are a culture of death, but that’s another article.
