Jihadist Psychopath, How He Is Charming, Seducing And Devouring Us

January 14, 2019 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – We are quite fortunate to be able to offer our readers with both a review of Dr. Jaime Glazov’s newest book, Jihadist Psychopath, as well as an interview with the author in this edition.
Dr. Glazov holds a PhD in history, earned in York University in Canada. He was born in the former Soviet Union to active dissident parents, and emigrated to Canada as a child with his family. Their love of freedom was passed to him; unsurprisingly, he sees Islam for the totalitarian system that it is and has been since its founding. He views world events through the lens of one who passionately cherishes liberty.
Mr. Glazov is the managing editor of Frontpage Magazine, an on-line publication founded by David Horowitz and also produces a web TV show titled, "The Glazov Gang."
Mr. Glazov is the author of numerous books including, "United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror.” He dedicates the present to his father for what he passed on to him.
We too, should be grateful to his parents.
When I was a little girl my father used to tell me a joke. It seems that a man went to the twentieth story of an office building. He jumped out a window, and, when he passed the tenth floor, he yelled to the crowd below: "So far, so good.”
It was only when I grew older that I realized it was not a joke but a cautionary tale.
Mr. Glazov has written a superb book on Islamic jihad, one that holds the reader's interest from the first page to the last and one that might serve well as a true text book. The title, Jihadist Psychopath, sets the stage for an examination of the jihadist mentality and its underlying psychopathology. An analysis of the doctrines of Islam follows.
Mr. Glazov is an admirer of President Trump, and his election has given him reason for optimism, but we are reminded that we have, so to speak, only passed the tenth floor. The Western affliction of “Jihad Denial,” remains a major theme throughout the book, noteworthy because the inability to deal with what has become a delicate subject continues to infect our political thinking, albeit as a diminishing component under the Trump Presidency.
The book is divided into chapters that are logically constructed and perfectly sequential. Mr. Glazov has given us an educational experience that reads like a novel and can be twice as frightening.
Now a segue. Often students or even mere observers of human events do not completely understand the alliance of Islam with Left wing organizations, an alliance which has made the political and social success of Islam possible. The author reminds us that the roots of the Left are grounded in apocalyptic vision and its foundational document is to be found, not in the works of Marx or Lenin, but in the Book of Genesis when the Serpent whispered to Eve "Thou can be as gods.”
Whittaker Chambers, the 1950’s communist world’s bête noire, called the allure of this prospect the second oldest religion in the world. The author references this episode frequently throughout the book. When the Soviet Union imploded, after a brief period of mourning, the Left embraced Islam as its Phoenix, arising from the ashes and repurposed as a major weapon in its renewed war against Western Civilization.
Mr. Glazov catalogs the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into Presidential circles beginning with the Clinton administration…and he names names.
The author admonishes the West for its willful blindness and acknowledges the strength of character necessary to call jihadist psychopathology for what it is in an atmosphere where the organs of the entertainment industry, mass media, and academia stand ready to destroy the lives of those who would speak the truth.
Closing out this impressive work Mr. Glazov concludes with a stark warning, "we have to do this now, for there is not much time.”
