Quote# 81690

Sudden Jihad Syndrome is a term coined by Daniel Pipes to describe Muslims that suddenly or unexpectedly turn against civilized, Western society and engage in acts of terror. Pipes has argued that due to this phenomenon all Muslims must be considered potential terrorists.

Examples include:
- John Allen Muhammad and Lee Malvo, the so-called Washington snipers. John Allen Muhammad was a Muslim convert, but some people allege that his motivations may not have been religious.
- Ali Hassan Abu Kamal, a Palestinian school teacher who engaged in a shooting rampage on top of the Empire State Building. He killed one and wounded six before taking his own life.
- Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, an American Muslim born in Tehran who ran over students at the University of North Carolina to punish the United States. Taheri-azar was the first terrorist to be explicitly called an example of Sudden Jihad Syndrome by Daniel Pipes.
- Mujtaba Rabbani Jabbar who shot up a movie theater in Baltimore.
- Rashid Baz, a Lebanese can driver living in New York City who shot at a van full of Orthodox Jews. In a burst of political correctness, the FBI initially refused to label this act a terrorist act.
- Sulejman Talovic, a Bosnian Muslim, opened fire in a Salt Lake City mall, killing five poeple before being shot dead by police.

In another example of bias in Wikipedia, Wikipedia has refused to allow any article on this topic and even refused to let an editor work on a draft for a rewrite of the article.

RationalWiki cites Conservapedia as its example of the "Poe Paradox": "In any fundamentalist group, a paradox exists where any new person (or idea) sufficiently fundamentalist to be accepted by the group is likely to be so ridiculous that they risk being rejected as a parodist (or parody)."

Mister Spak

You left out John Roeder and Eric Rudolph.

Can we bring up Sudden Crusade Syndrome, then? After all, Scott Roeder, Eric Rudolph, Jeffrey Dahmer, and a bunch of already-named killers were Christians. It means nothing.

@ the debate on the location of Kuala Lumpur.

Let's go with Jakarta then. Okay?

By this logic ever Christian who commits a crime is guilty of 'Sudden Christian Crusader Syndrome'.

A radical thought: why not hold each person responsible for his or her own actions only?
I'm a garden lover, I don't want to be held responsible for crimes committed by other garden lovers.

How about we just start calling fundamentalist Christianity "Chronic-Oppressive Reality-Disconnect Syndrome", if we're going to make up silly pseudo-psychiatric terms. It does seem you lot care to bind us all in atavistic CORDS at times.

Wikipedia would allow Chris-Chan's Sonichu page stay rather than support this mindless dribble.

Probably for the same reason they don't let scientologists recruit using Wikipedia.

The Duelist

Due to Sudden Crusade Syndrome, all Christians must be considered potential threats to society.

They rejected your article because it's full of bovine excrement.
