He did it for Allah? But…but…David Cameron told us that this attack had nothing to do with Islam! And the Daily Mail, as hopeless as ever even as it reports on all this below, does its best to obscure these jihadis’ motivations.
This subject has not been studied enough, but based on current psychological knowledge about the importance of the mother’s face and eye contact for the child’s psychological development, the Islamic dress code for women may constitute a negative influence on the development of Muslims’ personality.
