Can Any Nice, Normal Muslim Suddenly Turn Into a Jihadist?

The following is an excerpt from an article by Paul Sperry, author of Infiltration and Muslim Mafia:

Unlike other mass murderers, who exhibit antisocial, paranoid, narcissistic or schizoid traits, Farook and Malik do not appear to be natural born killers. Neither had a history of violence nor criminal record, and both generally were described as pleasant people.

In fact, friends invariably called the 28-year-old Farook a “very nice person,” while his landlord even described him as a “very gentle person.” He enjoyed working on old cars and shooting hoops. For her part, the 29-year-old Malik was seen as “a good girl” and a good student who aspired to be a pharmacist. Before dressing in austere Islamic clothing, she was even viewed as a “modern girl.”

Muslims and non-Muslims alike spoke highly of them both. Then suddenly a switch went off, and the couple went medieval.

By all accounts, that switch was piety. They simply got closer to their religion, immersing themselves in Islamic scripture.

Farook and Malik devoted themselves to Islamic study, which culminated in both of them memorizing the Koran, a high honor in Islam. They began wearing traditional Islamic garb — Farook, a white tunic and skullcap, and Malik, a black veil and robe.

We saw the same transformation in the Tsarnaev brothers of Boston, who were considered “nice” and “normal,” even partiers — until their mother made them stick their noses in their holy books and get religion. Within a matter of just a couple of years of becoming more fervent in their Muslim faith, these “typical American boys” were making shrapnel bombs and blowing off limbs of innocent bystanders at the Boston Marathon to “punish” fellow Americans for supporting wars in Muslim lands. And that was after the oldest boy, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, nearly beheaded a couple of Jews he once befriended.

“I told Tamerlan that we are Muslims, and we are not practicing our religion, and how can we call ourselves Muslims,” Mrs. Tsarnaev said. “And that’s how Tamerlan started reading about Islam, and he started praying, and he got more and more and more into his religion.”

The change was dramatic in both boys, who stopped partying and started hating — Jews, Christians, America. Suddenly they were growing out Islamic beards and saying they were “willing to die for Islam.”

A similar change came over the Chattanooga jihadist, Mohammad Abdulazeez, who was described as "very friendly" — until he became intensely observant in his faith and saw it as his religious duty to fatally gun down five soldiers in Tennessee earlier this year.

Moreover, two brothers suspected in last month’s Paris terror attacks were born-again Muslims as well. Reportedly, they really began to change around six months prior to the attacks, when they stopped drinking and started studying and praying.

This phenomenon is well documented in virtually every FBI case of homegrown American terrorism: the more religious, the more radical. The pattern is borne out in hundreds of criminal complaints and court documents since 9/11 that I’ve reviewed for my books on terrorism. Almost to a person, suspects are described by family, friends, neighbors or co-workers as “nice” — that is the universal adjective for these mass murderers — until they get closer to their religion and suddenly seek out infidels to kill.

Case agents have seen the link between Islamic belief and violence firsthand.

“Evidence exists to demonstrate that a greater level of adherence to Islamic law correlates to a greater likelihood of violence,” said FBI veteran John Guandolo, who worked some of the nation’s biggest terrorism cases out of the bureau’s Washington field office after 9/11.

Studies back him up, including one recently published in Europe that found that Islam is the only religion in the world in which people become more violent the stronger they believe.

Danish linguist Tina Magaard and a team of researchers spent three years examining the texts of the 10 largest religions to see if any incite violence. “The texts of Islam are clearly distinct from the other religions’ texts, as they, to a higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths,” she concluded. “There are also direct incitements to terror.”

Very good, Citizen

The answer lies, I think, in the "normal Muslim" aspect. A normal Muslim is raised never to question, to believe whatever he is told by someone who appears to be more knowledgeable/high status/authoritative than he is in his society and, above all, to remain loyal to his community since he would not be able to survive outside it.

This leads to an external locus of evaluation which has him following others and caring far too much about what they may think, rather than thinking things through and acting sensibly for himself and not out of the engineered high emotions from mosque pulpits after Friday sermons, which so often lead to mindless riots.

There is also rarely room in the normal Muslim's life for a reflective space where he can ask himself, for example, when faced with an order from a mosque pulpit to show his rage against kufr - "Do I really want to do this?" Islam does not encourage self-reflection (inimical as it is to the sort of blind following it depends on to wreak havoc) and the normal Muslim probably has probably never been asked how he feels or what he thinks about anything.

This is not to excuse the idiotic/brutal behaviour as a result of such upbringing, it is rather to try to explain it.

We in the west make a great mistake and put ourselves in even greater danger by perceiving these people through a western world view.

In the question "How can an nice normal Muslim turn into a jihadists ?" As for such a question two things should be stated. First, it's a very strange way of thinking in the mindset of those the Islamic world. Some people who have lived in the Middle East and experienced the results of the Muslim worldview , as Brigitte Gabriel who is the founder and head of , one time in her newsletter she had explained that many Muslim view those jihadist/Muslims as "normal" who Westerners acknowledge as extreme who are really militant violent jihadist Muslims. The fanatical Muslims in Islamic countries think of those who the West recognizes as the violent jihadist, those brainwash fanatical Muslims in Islamic nations do view violent as "normal" This serves as an example of how Islam can warp the human mind. Second, the violence harsh jihadist Muslim are following the instructions of the Koran in their brutal and harsh behavior. As the Koran teaches in 9:123. "O you who believe ! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you..." Such Koranic/Islamic harshness was ,indeed,experienced and felt by many people ,many times, around the world recent examples of this are the jihad murderous jihad violence in the cities of Paris and San Bernardino . Just as the Koran also teaches in 9:111. "The believers fight ,in Allah's cause, they slay and are slain, they kill and are killed." Such murdering madness as this may also be seen in the heinous jihad murders that occurred in Paris and San Bernardino. In short the question of the above title is answered in that the warped Muslim worldview sees peaceful nice Muslim as non-devout and the violent harsh and dangerous jihadist Muslim as "normal."

One of the most unusual articles on is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
