Huge numbers of Muslims are turning to ISIS because they want SEX, reveals former Islamist
The full headline is:
- Guns are ‘more or less a penis extension’ for isolated men, said Imam
- Alyas Karmani said he believes: ‘These guys just want girls. That’s it.’
- Not giving young Muslims the chance to talk about sex leads to hate
- Made comments during an ITV documentary about radicalisation
A former Islamist said he believes young British Muslim men are joining ISIS because they want sex.
Alyas Karmani said teenagers are at risk of being radicalised by terrorist groups because they feel isolated in ‘sexualised’ British society, and resent not having the same freedoms of Western youths to have girlfriends and intimate relationships.
The Bradford preacher now tours the country reaching out to young British Muslims to stop them turning to ISIS, after he was radicalised as a young man.
In ‘Exposure – Jihad – A British Story’, which aired on ITV on Monday night, he said young people struggle to turn to their families to talk about their sexual urges in typically conservative Muslim communities.
He said: ‘This is all about sex… These guys just want girls. That’s it.
‘[My wife] said you can’t say that because you’ll get really lambasted for it, but guys do things for girls – and that’s it.
‘I’m there with my gun – which is more or less a penis extension… it is out there, ‘look at me, I got my gear on’ [sic]
‘Because if you grow up and you are brought up with this value that you cannot have sex before marriage, that you cannot have a girlfriend, that you cannot be in anyway… this is something that is very big haram (sinful), a very big prohibition for an individual and you are growing up in a sexualised society, there’s a real sense of hate that you have that ‘I can’t do this’.’
‘And that’s why I find greater sexual dysfunction sometimes in Muslim communities as a result of that.’
Mr Karmani added that as he tours Britain to meet young Muslims and their families, he urges parents to tell their children they love and are proud of their kids, to make sure they don’t feel isolated.
If what this guy says is true or right, it would mean that American Christians, and Christians in nations such as Britain and Australia, could halt this somewhat by championing and promoting adult singleness and celibacy.
Maybe if more churches upheld virginity and singleness, and provided a sense of community for singles, it might give some of these Muslim guys who want to join ISIS pause (this is again assuming that this guy’s theory has any merit at all).
But as it it, the American Christian community advocates marriage far too much, and they do not respect celibacy or singleness.
