Hamas’s rage exceeds murder itself – brought to you by Iran
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: It is a rage that is identified by the complete destruction of the human body – beheadings, dismantling of the sacred human body piece by piece through rape, torture, blowing up with bombs, cutting the body up like we saw with Khashoggi. Cf.
None of this is new but it still remains very hard for people to delve beyond the horrific terrorism. “The inhumanity is hard to digest.” To quote my cousin. To call them “animals” doesn’t say enough either. Jihadis create such terror that it makes us turn away from what is really going on at an unconscious level so please allow me very briefly to take you, the reader, on a deep dive into the unconscious of these twisted perpetrators. Through the scenes of atrocity you can read their body language and their mind. They harbor a rage that exceeds murder itself. I will repeat:
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: UNMET INFANTILE NEEDS
While hard to believe, this kind of rage arises from huge unmet early, early, needs of the jihadis. They are bred in a shame honor culture which is inherently a brutally violent culture. Cf.
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: TO HUMILIATE AND SHAME THE JEW
None of its members are happy campers. The jihadi is the tip of the spear. Their group scapegoats them as well. Their aim in all of this bloody murderous mess is to inflict their profound humiliation through projection into us to unconsciously paralyze and control us while at the same time purifying their toxic dirty selves. The target is the Jew, the Dhimmi – the subjugated brutalized class in Islam. The root of the verb dhimmi means to blame and shame. In shame honor cultures the Other must always be blamed in order for the purification to happen.
This behavior of projection is also known in the West as the make-up of a borderline personality disorder along with psychopathic and sociopathic disorders as well.
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: POLITICAL SERIAL KILLING
This rage is routinely encountered in serial killing. Along time ago I argued and called such rage Political Serial Killing. This kind of rage causes in some of us a deep, deep, sense of denial. We find such brutality hard to believe and yet it has happened again and again in Jihadi Terrorism. Cf.
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: ITS DEATH CULT AND ITS PORNOGRAPHIC SADOMASOCHISM
This is a perversion because it entails the misuse of the object – i.e. the Other, the victims. In the jihadis’ mind’s eye people are not people, they are merely objects. The jihadi mind never developed empathy, which is put down early in the maternal attachment. They have a cognitive deficit. Their mind’s motherboard has a major coding error.
Nevertheless, such violence is erotically appealing unfortunately to too many who are poorly put together psychologically which includes a portion of the viewing audience who are addicted to it like being addicted to snuff films. Cf.
This twisted identification with blood, guts, sex, rape is enlivening for a psychologically, mentally “dead” population who cannot break free from a long-standing recalcitrant addiction to perpetuating this JIHADI RAGE WHICH EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF.
Now is the time to consider the intergenerational component of such relentless shaming practices. Undoubtedly epigenetics has been impacted because entire Arab Muslim and non-Arab Muslim societies buy into the violence vicariously or actively through their dysfunctionality. This addiction to THE JIHADI RAGE WHICH EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF has its own murderous motor.
To grow up in a shame honor culture is to live in the reverse world – where good is bad and bad is good. Think of Isaiah 5 in the Bible, even our sages “got it.”
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: THE BEHEADINGS OF BABIES
It has now been documented that such beheadings have taken place. The jihadis reveal themselves that they ENVY the babies because these babies were Jewish babies who were getting their needs appropriately met. Jews live in a culture where L’chaim to life is the underlying raison d’etre of our existence.
Such a death cult will stop at nothing that is why the only option is to eliminate it.
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: THE DESTRUCTION OF THE JEW
The jihadis show their envy of Jews precisely because of this value for life. This rage that exceeds murder itself is merely articulated, justified and “packaged” by the political ideology of the destruction of the Jew. Yet ideology is late developmentally. The problem of unmet needs has been lurking below the surface in the collective unconscious of the shame honor group. You cannot get your needs appropriately met in a shame honor culture. The hatred of the Jew is a “fixed idea” as they say in French meaning that it is a delusion and an obsession.
JIHADI RAGE EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF: PARANOIA’S SPLITTING THE WORLD INTO BLACK AND WHITE
There is no grey in jihadi thinking. Psychological splitting arises out of the early maternal attachment. These women have been beaten down since early childhood themselves. This is NOT to blame them but to understand the how, the why and the where from such perverted behavior arises. The mother is too terrified to be able to meet the needs of the baby.
94% of thinking is unconscious and the mother reproduces and projects into the baby how she has been brutalized. In turn the baby grows up and brutalizes Others. The cycle is viciously repeated. There is no quick fix for shame honor cultures. This issue cannot simply be written off to the glib idea of “the empowerment of women.” The problem is so much deeper than that and so much earlier.
We — Israel (and Global Jewry vis à vis antisemitism)—continue to pay the steep price of death due to THE JIHADI RAGE WHICH EXCEEDS MURDER ITSELF. Our National Tragedy is shockingly intertwined with the poor shoddy woeful way in which the jihadis have been raised. That is why we hold the “collective” (in my opinion — anthropology’s obscene word for shame honor cultures) responsible. There is no individuated sense of self. They are not a functional citizenry who can maintain a democracy because tragically they are too needy. In Arab Muslim cultures there is an unconscious social prohibition against separating from the shamed abused female/Ummi (mommy) who has become a mother at all to young an age living her life under the death threat of the honor killing. Her vagina is the honor of the family. Her honor is only the perverted first born son.
To know the above is helpful in understanding how and why Israel react. We embrace life – they embrace death. Who would you prefer as your neighbor?
