Over the past 25 years I have know and worked with Muslims, and for ten months I lived among Muslims in Iran. During my exposure to Muslims I have witnessed an inordinate number of sadistic and masochistic acts performed by Muslims of all ages. I have thought for a long time that the Islamic religion, if studied and followed rigorously, caused brain damage; however, after years of examining the phenomena I think I have finally put all the pieces of the puzzle together to explain why many Muslims are the way they are.

In my search for an answer I closely observed Muslims and tried to understand why they were doing what they were doing and to gain some insight into what could possibly motivate them to do what they were doing. It became obvious to me that:

  • Muslims enjoyed witnessing and/or causing severe sadistic pain to others.
  • Muslims enjoyed inflicting severe masochistic pain to themselves.
  • Muslims (young and old) enjoyed witnessing and/or causing severe pain to animals.
  • after talking to a few young Iranian soldiers who had been arrested, that the city jail in Isfahan was a hotbed of sodomy and sadistic activities.
  • an incredible number of young Iranians, if not full blown homosexuals, had experienced homosexual encounters with other young men.

I had two good Sunni Muslim friends in Iran who were educated in the United States; one was a banker and the other owned a string of appliance stores. The banker warned me of the dangers I faced as a Christian living in an Islamic country, he frequently warned me about the days that I should restrict my travel or just stay at home. The appliance owner was a worldly man with three wives, all of whom lived in separate homes away from his. He enjoyed life and enjoyed his families on scheduled days during the week. Both of these men had gone to college in the States, the banker married an Iranian girl who was also attending college in the US. Both men had lived in the US for a while after graduating from college; they were essentially Iranian-Americans living in Iran. I detected no sadistic tendencies in either of these men. The banker, when I left Iran, adopted my dog for his two children.

I set out to determine why these two men escaped whatever experience or trauma caused the “normal” Muslims to be sadistic.

Intimate Family Contact

I talked to the banker and the appliance man about their families and found out that they came from well-educated families that were not excessively religious in their day to day existence. I found out that both men came from loving parents who encouraged their children to do well. Their mothers and sisters were educated and covered their hair but did not cover themselves with a black sheet. They also shared the common room of their homes with the males of the family; they ate meals with the men and were not constantly banned to the restricted-to-females-only area of the house like other Muslim women.

This early investigation provided me with the starting point for developing my hypothesis to explain the source of the Muslim masochistic and sadistic traits.

Family Sensory Deprivation

I casually interrogated other Muslim males who I worked with or who worked for me taking care of the aircraft that I conducted test flights on. I discovered that most Muslim males have little to no close intimate family contact with their sisters or their mothers from birth to death. From what I was able to find out most Muslim males are raised in a loveless, emotionally sterile, all male existence that is devoid of motherly love and affection. The young men I talked to never (not even once) expressed any love for their sisters or mothers the way an American or European young man would. Their only concern about their sisters seemed to be that they could, if not watched closely, dishonor the family name.

I found out that most of the men I talked to who claimed they had an advanced education had actually only studied the Qur’an during their college work. Many were trained in the most radical areas of the Qur’an by radical imams that espoused hate and intolerance for other religions and it did not take long to identify and pick these men from a crowd. I suspect that it is easy to fill a young boy’s mind with a highly emotional, exciting, and directed hate when his life experience has been a dull, emotional void.

Sex and Pleasure Deprivation Conflict

Young Muslim males who are already damaged psychologically by sensory deprivation within the family are further traumatized when their hormones start pumping through their blood stream and they become interested in females. Muslim males are forbidden to see, touch, talk to, or be alone with a female who is not a relative; violation of any of these activities may be punished by anything from a public beating to death. I believe the sensory deprivation caused by this isolation is the basic building block for Muslim masochistic and sadistic tendencies. I believe a constant battle is raging within young Muslim males when puberty strikes; they want to be with a female but know that it is a sin. Then their conscience starts working on them when they think, and are told, if they were good Muslims they would not even want to be with a woman because it is a violation of the Qu’ran. This same conflict occurs when young Muslims are exposed to the Western pleasures of food, drink, music, dancing, the theater, and women who will casually stop and talk to you on the street. I have witnessed young Muslim men in Iran who experienced a great deal of guilt from enjoying the pleasures of Western culture through association with Americans working in Iran.

I believe this sex-pleasure deprivation conflict eventually results in male Muslims resenting all women, some to the point of hatred. This hatred is readily witnessed in the festive attitude exhibited by men watching the horse whipping of women being punishment; with each whimpering cry from the woman being beaten the men laugh out loud and mimic her pitiful cries, you would think they were watching a comical act on TV. This festive attitude is not exhibited by men who are watching a man being punished, male punishment is treated as a solemn event and women are forbidden to watch.

I think this same “I hate you because you subverted me” concept is directed at the United States and Americans by Muslim men who have experienced a great deal of guilt from enjoying the pleasures of our Western culture.

Muslim men, like ancient Christian men, can not help but have sinful thoughts about women once puberty strikes, and like ancient Christians they think they must beat themselves in some masochistic ritual to cleans themselves of all sinful thoughts. Luckily for Christians, we learned and accepted the fact that once puberty strikes it is impossible not to think about the ladies.

Incestuous Marriages

I recently read an article by Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist, that provided me with what I consider the final piece of my Muslim puzzle. I have always thought that the rigorous study and memorization of the Qu’ran was the basic cause of so many Muslims being intellectually incapable of self-determination and always in need of someone to give them direction. It never occurred to me that the wide spread habit of incestuous marriages among Muslims was a big part of the problem; however. Mr Sennels article states that Muslim children have an extremely high rate of genetic ill­nesses due to Islam’s 1400-year promotion of consanguineous marriages, a practice prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses but sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generations.

Mr Sennels article states that this massive inbreeding in the Muslim culture may well have done irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to intelligence, sanity, and health.

Mr. Sennels says that a Muslim’s ability to enjoy and produce knowledge and abstract thinking is simply lower in the Islamic world and he points out that all of the 58 Islamic countries together translates only 330 books a year, about 20% of what Greece alone translates. In the past 1,200 years Muslims have translated into Arabic about the same number of books that Spain translates in a single year.
Mr Sennels points out the difficulties this creates for Muslims seeking to succeed in the West. Hampered by a lower IQ, together with a religion that denounces critical thinking, surely makes it harder for Muslims to gain success in the high-tech knowledge centric societies.
In the past 100 years only four Muslims have ever won a Nobel Prize in science, Israel has won more than one hundred Nobel Prizes in science during that same time period.

This lack of standing in the intellectual world causes Muslims a great deal of stress, evidenced by their insistence that they do not want science because the study of the Qu’ran provides everything they need socially; however, privately the imams realize that intellectual advancement and science would, sooner or later, cause the debunking and destruction of Islam.

During my twelve-year navy career I served as an electronics instructor and flight crew member tracking NASA manned apace shots. I took the first pictures of the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker Lenin as it traveled south along the coast of Norway; one of the photographs I took was on the front page of the New York Times. I was a member of the navy’s Operation Deep Freeze in New Zealand and the Antarctic. During President Johnson’s South East Asia tour, I was assigned to President Johnson’s White House staff in Wellington, New Zealand and served as a security team leader. In 1967 I switched to the army and trained young army officers to be avionics maintenance officers. I was recruited by the Green Berets and assigned to jump school. After my airborne training, I was assigned to the 46th Special Forces Company in Thailand where I traveled from Malaysia to Burma installing and upgrading communication sites. On one occasion, I provided support for Special Forces operations in Laos. I was also an instructor for small weapons, jungle survival, physical security and combat-in-cities. In 1970 I graduated from primary flight school and Cobra attack-helicopter training; then went directly to Vietnam and the 25th Infantry Division just outside of Saigon. After six months, I was reassigned to the 101st Airborne Division just south of the dividing line between North and South Vietnam. I received nine air medals, two bronze stars and one army commendation medal in Vietnam. My next assignment was in Munich, Germany where I flew the border between East and West Germany. While stationed in Germany I was recruited by the Criminal Investigation Division and later Military Intelligence to track military drug dealers; my investigation led me to a French Communist woman who was supporting an underground newspaper that was providing instructions on how to sabotage military aircraft, vehicles and generators. While serving with the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment in Germany I also trained the unit's Aero Rifle Platoon in combat-in-cities and combat-in-forest techniques. During my long military career I was trained in and pursued independent studies in special warfare, psychological warfare, and physical security. My presentations on the military prove that I understand the difference between the problems inherent to war and problems caused by poor military planning, leadership, and management. I have lived and worked in a number of Muslim countries and have studied Islamic culture and religion for more than twenty years. My presentations on the Middle East and Islam provide insight into current world events and our relationships with the Middle Eastern countries of Iran and Iraq. After retirement, I worked for Bell Helicopter and was assigned to Isfahan, Iran as a Cobra test pilot. I enjoyed Iran until the terrorism started. They blew up my favorite Korean restaurant just moments after I had walked out. I escaped from Iran just prior to the overthrow of the government. Upon returning home to Ohio, I learned from the evening news that some of the Iranian military officers I had worked with had been executed (murdered) under orders from Ayatollah Khomeini. Since leaving Bell Helicopter, I have had three novels published and have worked as a technical writer, publications consultant, and engineer for Siemens, IBM, Motorola, and Dresser Industries. I have written more than 300 technical manuals on computers, computer controlled equipment, central-office telephone equipment, pagers, robots, hydraulics, pneumatics, diesel engines, jet engines, helicopters, and mining equipment. Today, I am employed as a research and development engineer for a South Florida Aerospace company; I also continue to do public speaking and radio appearances. I live in Florida with my wife JoAnn and my four-pound Chihuahua named Chiquita.
