The Echoes of the Mind (158-4-2) Muslims



Islamic fundamentalists tremble at the prospect of societal change: that male-dominated clans might be replaced with looser social bonds and even, Allāh forbid, a measure of gender equity. These Muslim men cringe at the prospect of altered lifestyles and mores: most importantly, their potential loss of status.

A significant slice of Muslims supports terrorist violence against Western societies as an expression of hate-based frustration from the infidel sociocultural values that are perceived as an encroaching corrosive threat to Islam. Mass media – which flagrantly flouts Western decadence – has further fueled Islamic madness.
