More on the Dutch (Moroccan) ‘schizophrenic’ who randomly stabbed thee people at a coffee shop

First, here is a video:

The Devil Made Me Do It.

I do find it interesting how fast they diagnosed him as schizo. They also did the Muslim who murdered Theo Van gogh as well as the Muslim who broke in to a police station a couple of years ago and stabbed several police officers, one of them a woman. All these Muslim attackers managed to get diagnosed with schizophrenia a great deal faster than, as I mentioned already, Anders Breivik, but also faster than anyone else I know who actually is suffering from that malady.

I might add, that the symptoms people experience seem to reflect the culture with which they are inculcated. For example, a Catholic might view themselves as sinful and be a threat to themselves, while a Jewish one might be trying to calculate pi ad-nauseum to silence the voice of his mother in his head.

While I have certainly not read a study on this, nor do I know if one exists, (one certainly should) intuitively and from personal experience with friends who suffer this most difficult illness, it seems that symptoms are very much a product of whatever belief set one already has or has been raised with.

Having said that,

I would make the case that even if these Dutch Moroccan men were all certifiably schizophrenic as claimed, that in all cases it was their Islamic beliefs that motivated and inspired their actions and not their illness. While cases can be found of individual people in the west murdering specific individuals because of their own paranoid delusions, the assassin of John Lennon and Canada’s well known TV personality, Brian Smith for example, I would be willing to bet that the number of non-Muslim diagnosed schizophrenics who actually randomly killed people was staggeringly lower than the number of Muslims even including the ones claimed to be schizo, who did.

Does it not make sense that a faith that insists that the only way to get in to a perpetual priapistic paradise, a heavenly bordello is to assassinate unbelievers in jihad would be fertile ground for people with delusional tendencies? It was not the disease that stabbed these three people, one of them at least may yet be fatal, it was a man fueled by Islamic delusions of hate and reward for it.

  1. “symptoms are very much a product of whatever belief set one already has or has been raised with.”

    Short answer: yup.

    Long answer- well it was too long so I deleted most of it. This is the summery.

    People with schizotypal personality disorder, one of the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, tend to have odd beliefs based upon whatever is going on in popular culture at the time. When death rays were all the rage in science fiction, they would show up at police stations claiming that their neighbors were aiming death rays at them. When the fasion in sci fi shifted to stories of UFOs they started thinking they had been abducted. (I’m not saying all people who think they have been abducted are neccissarily insane).

    I have been told by psychologist friends that schizophrenia is common in that part of the world. I just now did a search for “cousin marriage schizophrenia” and the first two articles were about Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

    Schizotypal personality disorder is a schizophrenia spectrum disorder that can turn into schizophrenia later in life. People with SPD can sometimes have violent psychotic episodes.

    But none of this stuff is cut and dry. Did the guy who killed Theo Van Gogh exhibit impared cognitive functioning or was he just stupid? Was he raving incoherantly or was he repeating islamic beliefs that the psychologists, who are trained in psychology, not theology, could not believe anyone really believed? Someone brought up with a belief system that is radically different from the psychologist might seem to have delusional beliefs.

    As of at least a few decades ago many sane normal people in central Africa still believed that killing a sorcerer would stop an evil spell. This was so accepted that it was a legal defence leading to extremely short duration of imprisonment (about four days). But if a Europian thought this they would be clinically insane.

    What I am getting at is that the guy in this story might be insane but the guy who killed Theo Van Gogh was just an asshole.

  2. Quote: “. . .symptoms people experience seem to reflect the culture with which they are inculcated.. . . it seems that symptoms are very much a product of whatever belief set one already has or has been raised with.”

    I think you answered your own question . These mental illness snap diagnoses are a result of PC culture hell bent on avoiding facts.

  3. Loved the bordello comment at the end but it is one thing that constantly puzzles me about that reward. It seems it is a behviour viewed as debased on earth. The view seems to prevail that women are harlots and whores and should be punished by death because the use of their charms is the work of the devil. Yet for some strange reason, the reward which motivates the jihadi is that which is viewed as evil. I’m confused.
