London mayor has eye-raising theory about jihadists

Why do they hate us? Well, maybe it’s because they hate themselves.

London’s Mayor Boris Johnson thinks Muslims who turn to radicalism are sexually frustrated losers who turn to terrorism because it makes them feel strong.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Johnson sited an MI5 report, saying of jihadists, “They look at a lot of porn. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them.”

I suppose that could be a reason why they’re happy to martyr themselves and get their hands on those virgins in heaven. If you’re not guaranteed of getting chicks on earth, aim higher!

The Times of Israel says Johnson “went on to criticize elements of the Islamic community for not doing enough to convince young men to turn away from extremism: “I often hear voices from the Muslim intelligentsia who are very quick to accuse people of Islamophobia… But they are not explaining how it can be that this one religion seems to be leading people astray in so many cases.”

How indeed. Frankly, I can’t believe it’s only sexual frustration that motivates militant Muslims. However, it must be said they don’t have a particularly good track record with women and girls, whether it’s ISIS or Boko Haram.

Naturally, Johnson’s comments have caused outrage, but he did have some comments I wish our own leaders would heed:

“We are going to have to make up our minds very quickly about this ‘caliphate’: how we will respond to the eruption of a new and hellish country on the map, and how we deal with these Brits who go off and fight in its name.”

“Do nothing now, and the tide of terror will eventually lap at our own front door,” warned Johnson.”

Sir, I believe it already has.
