A Baffling Question: Women Attracted To ISIS

Do the radical Feminists have an answer?

Again this morning the BBC carried as its top story the question of why three homegrown women left England to join ISIS in Syria.

They volunteered themselves for overseas Jihad, and the English are perturbed over the loss of their daughters – three of them.

But when 1,400-plus English girls were being raped by Pakistani Muslims in England itself, in the town of Rotherham, over a period of two decades, the BBC could hardly be bothered. No one in England seemed to notice or to care, and even Rotherham’s townsfolk kept mum so as not to arouse Islamic sensibilities.

What a strange obsession about this but not that and I sure can’t figure it out. It’s getting so that nothing makes sense.

Because it is a fact that more than three of the world’s daughters are falling voluntarily into the arms of ISIS -- this plague of barbarism scorching the Middle East and beyond. Thousands, from all over and even from America, are leaving the comforts of home to join the savages. That boys and men find Jihadist butchery so attractive; that is one sickness. (Three radicalized men arrested only today, two in New York, one in Florida.)

But women?

If it’s true that Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, ISIS is hardly the place.

I assume that this urge to hook up is something biological – gravitation to the strongest male in the herd.

Daughters of the Western World need to have a talk with their fathers. Dads trust no neighborhood boys over the age of 15, so just imagine.

They’d learn that these Jihadi bums are not Super Heroes.

Nor are they a new Race of Giants. They’re good at taunting the world. They tower over their helpless victims to induce submission.

Is that the come-on? This is not like “Fifty Shades of Grey.” With these bums every Jihadi Bride is a sex slave and every sex slave is for keeps. Sadism, bondage and discipline are what they practice on their women whether their women like it or not. More on all that here.

They do not share our manners and dating rituals and they do not stop at the word NO.

Mockery is another one of their tricks and on this they do have the upper hand to our everlasting shame. The civilized world’s lack of response, starting with Obama, has us stricken with global Stockholm Syndrome. We’re buying what they’re selling but that should not include our damsels serving as useful carnal idiots.

The Jihadists appear to be invincible, if that’s the attraction, to breed with the winners, let’s remember that they plunder people who have no boots.

Today it’s Christians and Kurds mostly in Syria and Iraq but they have bigger plans.

Women go for this? Well, apparently we live in a world where more and more people are seduced by the temptation of mindless brute force. 

To the strong man goes the girl. It’s in all the movies. It’s in the comic books,,,
To the strong man goes the girl. It’s in all the movies. It’s in the comic books. It’s the Law of BMOC…the allure for the big man on campus.

Infatuation is a strange business.

Henry Kissinger drew women in his heyday. “Power,” he found, “is the ultimate aphrodisiac.”

Power, yes, and I would add, fame…even fame of the most disgusting sort.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gained an all-girl cult following after he was charged and arrested for his part in the murderous Boston Marathon attack. He received hundreds of loving tweets and even at this moment, standing trial, the girls are outside with banners weeping for his acquittal. He’s cute and that’s all that counts.

Women flock with marriage proposals to men on death row. What is this!

We need to hear from Gloria Steinem and her fellow feminists how this happens. This needs to be explained. Does anybody know?

The mystery escaped Freud as he asked this question: “What does woman want?”

Still baffling.
