Ayaan Hirsi Ali Explains The Jihadist Mindset

Here is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author and colleague of Geert Wilders in The Netherlands’ Parliament, speaking to Megyn Kelly on the Fox News Channel.

For readers who are not familiar with Ms. Ali’s life story, for years she has been targeted for assassination in The Netherlands – for speaking out against Islam.  You can find her books and a brief biographical sketch on Amazon by clicking here.

Megyn Kelly frames her first question around the “radicalization” of a Muslim.  That term confuses people in the Western World.  What Ms. Kelly calls “radicalization” is simply the decision any Muslim reaches to obey the Quran’s command from Allah, delivered by and through Islam’s prophet Muhammad, to wage holy war (jihad) against non-Muslims (Infidels) – and kill them.

The decision can be made in a quick moment, or it can be reached over a period of some time – perhaps days, months or years.  There is no way to predict when any Muslim, male or female,  no matter how peaceful he or she may be, will arrive at that decision.  But, the Quranic command to wage violent jihad against non-Muslims is ever-present and it is eternal.

One of the questions posed during the brief segment goes to how a Muslim mother could possibly abandon her baby and sacrifice her own life in the commission of an act of violent jihad, as happened recently in San Bernardino, California.  One can discern the urgency in Ms. Ali’s presentation as she quite eloquently describes her frustration after years of trying to get Westerners to comprehend the intensity and depth of belief in Muslims’ minds when they answer the Quranic call to wage jihad against Infidels.

To Muslims who give up everything in this life to fight and kill Infidels, Allah promises by and through the Quran great rewards in the hereafter, far surpassing worldly possessions and commitments.

Finally, there is really nothing “radical” about reaching that decision to commit an act of violent jihadJihad is and has always been a mainstream institution of Islam.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

One Response to Ayaan Hirsi Ali Explains The Jihadist Mindset

  1. Great video. Not just any old video. Talks about a very interesting concept, when we are talking about Islam. Bin laden once said al Qaeda will have victory ‘because the us loves life, and Islam loves death’. This concept of being rewarded in an incomparable way for these crimes, is extremely difficult to combat, making a laughing stock of ‘de radicalisation programs’
