Islamist Terrorist Cult Recruitment

terrorist cult recruitment

Theories of cult induction may best explain much of what we are seeing today in terrorist groups, better than theories regarding marginalization and poverty. Understanding Islamist terrorist cult recruitment and induction can provide us with tools for helping young people resist the charms of the cult leader. First, let us …

Terror and Islam are Not Connected! Really?

terror and islam

Why should Obama and Clinton think terror and Islam are related when so many academicians pontificate about how suicide bombings have nothing to do with the religion? Why should they think terror is related to Islam when those analysts who do connect the two are scorned and condemned for it? …

Into the Fray: A challenge to a French philosopher .

“Bernard- Henri Lévy is precisely the kind of target that Israeli public diplomacy efforts should be focused on – far more so than any incumbent politician, especially outside the USA.” You fight against jihad, yes. But do you have to add to the fight against jihad the fight with the …

The Feisal-Weizmann Agreement Is Not What it Appears

Feisal-Weizmann Agreement

Israel uses the Feisal-Weizmann Agreement of 1919 as evidence that the Arab leadership was at one time favourable toward the establishment of the Jewish state. I recommend that we stop doing this. While there is within the document a hint that Feisal bin Hussein bin Ali al-Hashemi did recognize the …

Palestinian By Any Other Name . . .

Palestinian

The name “Palestinian” has come to be fallaciously associated with Arabs.

I propose that one major obstacle to a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the Holy Land lies in …

Linda Hakim left Iraq for London in 1970. But she has never been able to shake off the fear she had felt growing up as a Jew. She heard mobs in Baghdad, after Israel’s Six Day War victory, screaming ‘death to Israel, death to the Jews.” She escaped a lynch …

Oxfam and Gaza

Oxfam seems like such a nice charity.  It’s slogan is “The power of people against poverty.” What can be controversial about that?

A sad satire. The United Nations took a special interest in the high unemployment rate of Palestinians, which has led to feelings of despair and hopelessness, leaving many to resort to violence against Israelis.  As such, the UN held a meeting in October 2015 in Vienna to listen to various …

I’ve been humming and hawing for the past week or so regarding the issue of us treating our Jewish terrorists differently from Arab terrorists.  I have not been doing this aloud, but just letting some uncomfortable questions reverberate within my psyche.
