Switzerland: Muslim tied to murder of Scandinavian hikers had “psychiatric problems,” “started going to mosque a lot”

“The man began receiving Swiss disability benefits for these psychiatric problems when he turned 18 and continued to receive those benefits after he moved to Morocco in 2015.”

His mother “said that after living in a youth centre and being introduced to the Koran, her son had “started going to the mosque a lot.”

Authorities will dismiss this jihadi as another manifestation of the global outbreak of mental illness. However, it is not at all outside the realm of possibility that he could have genuine psychiatric problems, and also have opted to turn to jihad violence because of his devout commitment to Islam. He may have thought that his psychiatric problems were a manifestation of demons or jinn working in his life, and decided to do something great in order to get into the deity’s good graces. And Islam teaches that there is no deed greater than jihad: a hadith has a man asking Muhammad, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 56.4.2785)

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
