Unable to Bear the Company of Women

The New York Times has an extensive profile of the American jihadist Omar Hammami, a.k.a. Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki, detailing his odyssey from being a middle-class American boy in Alabama to a hateful jihadist in Somalia. We are told that Omar dropped out of college because, as he had himself explained, he “could no longer bear to be in the company of women.”

Hmmmmmm. I wonder why that would be?

I wonder if it could possibly have something to do with Islam’s demonization of women and female sexuality – and how this Islamic misogyny leads to impulses for jihad, death and suicide?

It’s just all such a mystery.


To get the whole story on how Islamic misogyny leads to jihadist yearnings for murder-suicide, read Jamie Glazov’s new book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.
