If Islamic Terrorists Are Devout Muslims, Why Are They Hooked on Porn?

A lot of Christian men (and some women) are hooked on porn, too.

excerpt

  • Most radical Islamic jihadis claim to be devout Muslims who promote the spread of strict conservative Islamic societal principles, yet it has been continuously documented through the years that many of those Muslim extremists are chronically addicted to sex and pornography.
  • Jihadis’ obsession with porn and sex is not a new phenomenon that is only being seen today through the “brutal” and “instinctive” sex drive of the Islamic State terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. Even the late Osama Bin Laden, the world-famous leader of Al Qaeda, had a huge collection of porn that was found by Navy Seals who searched his compound when he was killed. Additionally, police raids of terrorist cells in the Europe since 9/11 have revealed “countless” images of child porn, The New York Post reported.
  • Islamic terrorists being addicted to porn exposes a double standard, especially for those jihadis who blame America and the West for polluting the world with sexual desire, filth and sin.
  • A number of theories have been proposed as to why pornagraphy use is so prevalent among these “conservative” radical extremists.

    With over 500 Britons having fled to Syria to join the military ranks of ISIS, London Mayor Boris Johnson offered his opinion recently when he told The Sun that jihadis are nothing more than porn-driven “losers” who suffer from “self-esteem” issues and have trouble getting women.

    “They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them,” Johnson explained. “They are not making it with girls and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort – which of course is no comfort…They are just young men in desperate need of self-esteem who do not have a particular mission in life, who feel that they are losers and this thing makes them feel strong – like winners.”

  • Speaking on a panel moderated by Princeton professor Robert George in December, president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif., Hamza Yusuf, opined that many young Muslims become so “defiled” by porn to the extent that they blame the West for corrupting them and eventually turn to jihad for redemption.

    “I really think that we underestimate the amount of people that have this experience of wanting to restore some kind of purity to themselves,” Yusuf said, “And the only restoration for them is blowing themselves up and get rid of the part that is the source of my defilement, which is [their] body.”

    Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, criticized Yusuf’s theory in an interview with the Investigative Project on Terrorism after the panel, and said it is not pornography that drives jihadis to war but rather the extremist mindset.

    Jasser reasoned that so many jihadis get hooked on sex and porn because they ultimately think that no matter what they do on Earth, they will go to heaven as martyrs.

  1. This is the result of warped, perverted religious teachings regarding women…and it is not totally dissimilar to Christian men- just a more primitive version in Islam. Making anything or anyone an idol and obsession; i.e. men obsessing over sex; is extremely dangerous psychologically. I realized years ago that there was something perverse about some Christian doctrines re: women and it is more extreme in Islam. Abuse not only damages the victim but the abuser as well, and even more so.

    1. Hello again!
      Thanks for visiting the blog and leaving comments.

      Yes, I’ve done several posts about how there are similarities between some Christian teachings / interpretations and radical Islam (and in some cases, Mormonism).

      Many Christians like to defend the Christian faith by arguing it’s so different from all the world religions – maybe concerning soteriology it is, but when it comes to other things, they echo teachings by Muslims.

      You would think these guys who argue, “Christianity is so different from other religions” would stop and consider that because their views on gender resemble Islam’s that maybe their views on this are in error.

      I saw on another blog- a Christian blog – where the blogger quoted a Christian guy (who I believe is into promoting home schooling or is with Christian group CBMW, I can’t recall exactly), but he was actually COMMENDING Islamic teaching about women! He thinks Christians should emulate Muslims concerning genders. I was dumbfounded.
