Terrorism, Islam and mental health: A psychiatrist explains the connection

Tanveer AhmedRebel Commentator

As we've seen from the recent attack in Toronto, there are often attempts to deny any links to Islam in terror attacks if the perpetrators have a history of mental illness.

As a psychiatrist, I have assessed accused terrorists for mental illness, so here is my take on the connection.

I truly wonder what has to happen for the useful idiots to admit the truth? Toronto could be a smoking crater and they would still deflect and deny.

Always follow the money or head to the source—always. Trudeau——Islam. Both equally assuring and deceptive.

Can you hear the Imams’ calling for the lone wolves to attack? They use mental illness as a cover for terrorism.

Janie Jones, it would appear Mo was mentally ill and experienced hallucinations, OCD and a myriad of other very dysfunctional problems…some would even call it evil.

The book of islam should be on trial here as it was obviously written by a mental deficient, as evidenced by the actions of some of its followers, isis, lone wolfs, etc.

Perhaps a tad convoluted in his analysis of Faisal Hussein and whether he was a terrorist or not. He concludes, that it is NOT simply an either/or proposition. It can be both mental illness and a terrorist act, and more often than not, it is both. In the case of Faisal Hussein is clearly was both; despite what our generally jaundiced MSM would have us believe.

Umm, no. There are attempts to deny links to Islam IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE.

Thanks for playing.

ISIS and ISIS inspired terrorists are all insane. Who in their right minds would purposely kill random innocents?
Mental illness is not relevant.
What is relevant are the reasons for the murders: following literally the passages in the Quran that call for the murder of innocents, infidels, apostates, gays, etc.

In truth, anybody who desires to become a Terrorist has to be, at least one brick short of a load. Suicidal Tendency’s are also part of the makeup. The cause, of course, is Inbreeding and ignorance.

I am disappointed that Dr Tanveer did not include the Trudeau Clan in this discussion.
