Jihadis are psychopaths- ISIS fighters are dangerously delusional

Milo Yiannopoulos is a writer who has a lot of courage. He's calling the jihadis who join ISIS "pschopaths" who follow a genocidal ideology.   

He's calling ISIS out for being sick people who take barbaric actions against other humans for no reason, while they won't even take off their dark masks to show their identity. 

They're beyond psychopaths. These ISIS killers are evil subhuman creatures.

Milo writes in Brietbart- London

"We've all seen them in photographs. Swathed in black, standing triumphant but dispassionate over the dismembered victims of their genocidal ideology. No, I'm not talking about Hitler's SS: rather, the jihadis of ISIS. But ...the similarities are endless and hideously unsettling."

"Our understanding of Islamic extremism in all its psychopathic barbarism is the more vivid because....we mostly see these terrorists in their own words and pictures, via their own social media accounts. Like the Nazis before them, ISIS are masters of communication, deploying slick social media campaigns to spread the word of radical Islam. So we know what their objectives are. And we know that one of them is the eradication of the Jewish people."

"Hitler might have been the master of the radio soundbite and the public spectacle, but ISIS has a fluency with digital technology that gives them immediate and direct access to would-be jihadis. It's terrifying. And, as we watch on our computers and smartphones, we see history repeating itself, as Christians and Jews are threatened and then slaughtered throughout the Middle East. "
Although Milo rambles in his essay about the urgency of a decisive response to ISIS, the essence of his message is chilling.  

Quoting the anti-Nazi theologian Martin Niemoller, Milo sends a clarion message to those he feels are too complacent in the face of the growing ISIS threat to civilization: 

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Writing as a nurse, I can say that clinicians don't understand the mind of psychopaths, because there's no reasoning with their understanding of anything rational. They can create chaos from simple concepts, especially drawing concrete opinions about what creates good or causes evil. Humans who engage in beheading others without any provocation are somehow rationalizing a way to justify their barbaric actions. They are psychopaths.

Obviously, the human condition cannot continue to grow and prosper in a world held hostage by genocidal psychopaths.  

Milo is calling for an annihilation of all jihadis, drawing the analogy between them and Nazis. Yet, without clear boundaries about who these jihadis are, cloaked in black with knives and evil intent, it will be nearly impossible to eradicate them from the face of the earth.  My sense is, and Milo seems to agree, we must engage with the ISIS jihadis as though they are the subhuman creatures they portray themselves to be, motivated to destroy them by considering the consequences of doing nothing. 

Milo's gruesome reminder about "coming for us" is a reality; we clearly cannot allow this evil to continue. 

Jihadis are delusional enemies of humanity, intending to destroy all influence of human enlightenment. They're not Muslims. 
In fact, Muslims must be the first line of defense to destroy the jihadists. Unfortunately, Milo says jihad is part of Islam's religious beliefs. Therefore, it's difficult to conceptually separate out the jihad from the Islam doctrine.  

Nevertheless, the culture that created the Arabic number system should be able to identify the jihadis' threat to civilization as we know it, and destroy the ISIS psychopaths.
