Islam and Brain Damage

UK terror plotter Parviz Khan

How did Parviz Khan get that bruise on his forehead?

Parviz Khan is one of nine defendants on trial in the UK for a terrorist plot against the British military. Family Security Matters has been following the trial:

UK: Man Admits Plotting To Behead Muslim Soldier

Those shrill cries claiming persecution can now be exposed as false. A trial is currently taking place in Leicester Crown Court. And it is only now revealed that 37-year-old Parviz Khan, one of the nine people arrested in late January and early February 2007, has pleaded guilty to plotting to kidnap and decapitate a British Muslim soldier.

Khan, an “unemployed charity worker,” admitted his guilt earlier this month, but the news was suppressed until a trial involving two other individuals, Amjad Mahmood, 33, and Zahoor Iqbal, 31, began. These two denied involvement in the plot.

But did he get the bruise while in custody?

Evidently not. Dymphna at Gates of Vienna explains that this bruise is nothing unusual among devout Muslims:

Gates of Vienna: Muslim Stigmata

What I hadn’t been able to find is any commentary on Mr. Khan’s bruised forehead. Had the police been having a go at him with billy clubs, perhaps? Why no mention of it by the MSM? Strange that it would go unremarked…

Well, sorry, this is nothing as pedestrian as torture. What creates these Muslim stigmata is the effect of devout head-pounding fervor. Fundamentalist Muslims do not touch their head to the ground in prayer. Instead, they bounce their cranium forcefully onto the stone floors on which they kneel. Performing this act of adoration five times a day will get you that prune-shaped hematoma our head-banger suspect now sports. By their bruises you shall know them.

And these people have the nerve to complain about Gitmo…

The Wikipedia whitewash

Prayer bump

A prayer bump, also known as a prayer scar, or a zabiba or zebiba (raisin) in Arabic is a mark on the forehead of a pious muslim, caused by rubbing the forehead against a prayer mat. Islam requires its adherents to pray five times a day (known as salah), which involves kneeling on a prayer mat and touching the ground with one’s forehead. When done for extended periods of time, a prayer bump may develop. Devout Muslims consider the presence of a prayer bump to be a worthy sign of religious dedication and piety.

The prayer bump can take the form of a discolouration of the skin, caused by repeated chafing and the build-up of callous. In extreme cases, the callous can be thick enough to create a real bump that portrudes from the forehead. Prayer bumps are common in Islamic countries such as Egypt, where they are colloquially called a ‘zabiba’ (raisin).

Could he have gotten a deep bruise like this merely from rubbing his forehead on a mat?

A mark from dirt, yes. Chafed skin, maybe. A callus, possibly. But a deep bruise? No. Rubbing the surface of the skin against a flat surface does not cause bruising in a normal individual. A bruise is evidence of a strong enough impact to break blood vessels below the surface.

Now I’m not a neurologist, but…

Repeated blows to the head can cause permanent damage to the brain. Any brain function can become impaired when the brain is damaged – motor and sensory capabilities, regulation of internal body processes, sleep and wakefulness, emotional states, memory, reasoning, judgment, personality, and character. The dangers of concussion are well known from studies of athletes, soldiers, and others who have suffered such trauma.

  • Troops risk undetected brain injury

    By Gregg Zoroya, USA TODAY

    Thousands of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan may be risking permanent brain damage by returning to combat with relatively minor but undiagnosed concussions, often caused by bomb blasts, military researchers say.

    Doctors say they are only now understanding the scope of the problem. Researchers screening returning soldiers and Marines at four military bases found that about 10% suffered at least a minor brain injury during combat. About 20% of troops in front-line infantry units suffered such injuries.

    The injuries frequently go undiagnosed because troops have no visible wounds or may not know they suffered a concussion, doctors say. Medics and field doctors often aren’t aware of what happened during fighting.

  • Brain Injury in Sports

    Sports-Related Recurrent Brain Injuries – United States

    An estimated 300,000 sports related traumatic brain injuries, TBIs, of mild to moderate severity , most of which can be classified as concussions, (i.e., conditions of temporary altered mental status as a result of head trauma, occur in the United States each year. The proportion of these concussions that are repeat injuries is unknown; however, there is an increased risk for subsequent TBI among persons who have had at least one previous TBI. Repeated mild brain injuries occurring over an extended period (i.e., months or years can result in cumulative neurologic and cognitive deficits, but repeated mild brain injuries occurring within a short period (i.e., hours, days, weeks) can be catastrophic or fatal. The latter phenomenon, termed “second impact syndrome” has been reported more frequently since it was first characterized in 1984. This page describes two cases of second impact syndrome and presents recommendations developed by the American Academy of Neurology to prevent recurrent brain injuries in sports and their adverse consequences.

  • Chemical Proof of Punch-Drunk Effect

    Hits To Boxers’ Heads Cause More Chemical Markers For Brain Injury

    (WebMD) A blow to the head may do more than just make you feel woozy.

    A new study shows repeated blows to the head cause an increase of chemicals in the fluid that circulates around the brain and spinal cord. These chemicals are markers for brain and nerve cell injury. The rise of these chemicals of the brain may also help explain what is commonly known as “punch drunk” syndrome, with symptoms of long-term neurological damage.

    Researchers studied a group of amateur boxers and found those who had recently suffered repeated blows to the head during a recent boxing match had higher-than-normal levels of certain chemicals in their cerebrospinal fluid (fluid that circulates around the spinal cord and brain). These chemicals, known as neurofilament light protein and total tau, have also been shown to be increased in some neurologic disorders with damage of brain neurons and cells.

    Researchers say about 20 percent of professional boxers develop chronic traumatic brain injury as a result of years of repeated blows to the head during their careers in the ring. But little is known about the brain injury risks faced by amateur boxers who must wear protective headgear and compete in shorter bouts.

  • Concussions May Spell Later Trouble For Football Players

    ScienceDaily (May 5, 2000) — SAN DIEGO, CA – The first scientific survey of head injuries in professional football players suggests that head trauma from the sport may lead to later neurological problems.

“Fundamentalist Muslims do not touch their head to the ground in prayer. Instead, they bounce their cranium forcefully onto the stone floors on which they kneel. ”

As in More-Devout-Than-Thou “CAN YOU TOP THIS?”

been wondering about that bruise since i first saw Abdulmutallab’s pic. if i hadn’t seen Zawahiri pix before, i might’ve ignored it. possibility of brain damage occurred to me too, of course.

from wiki:

“The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain, lying in front of the motor and premotor areas.

“This brain region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behaviors, personality expression, decision making and moderating correct social behavior. The basic activity of this brain region is considered to be orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals.

“The most typical psychological term for functions carried out by the prefrontal cortex area is executive function. Executive function relates to abilities to differentiate among conflicting thoughts, determine good and bad, better and best, same and different, future consequences of current activities, working toward a defined goal, prediction of outcomes, expectation based on actions, and social “control” (the ability to suppress urges that, if not suppressed, could lead to socially-unacceptable outcomes).

“Many authors have indicated an integral link between a person’s personality and the functions of the prefrontal cortex.”

why the hate for islam, we practice our prayers whats it with you, you do your own thing we do our own. Now let me tell you something Islam is perfect but the people who practice it are not. We consider this bump/bruise to be a gift from our Rahman/Raheem/Kareem (our lord), when you realise what the truth is it will be too late…

Anywayz we do not hate so good luck to you in what ever you do

And one more thing, understanding of things from the science and ordinary peoples point of view change like when it was thought the earth was flat. In the Quran our holy book there are many evidences of things such as the stages as the child developes within a womb, no one had the technology to know until recent years.

I am going to stop now

Now I understand why the koranimals blindly follow the 7th century pedophile Mo. They’ve been banging their heads on the ground for so long they are all brain damaged. I could never understand why so many people would follow a warmongering camel jockey – now I know.

The hypnotic, self-destructive, and mind-altering nature of Islamic worship (yes, including the head-bashing) is indeed part of the reason. For more dimensions of the Muslim mindset, please see: The Terrifying Brilliance of the Islamic Memeplex

FROM…. in this point of time in saudi arabia …TO…. way into the future this judo blue-belted masculine looking slightly mongloid woman who took part in the 2012 Olympics will be hailed as the first saudi freedom-from-islam fighter pin-up girl….at this rate of progress one can easily surmise that the saudis will actually be the first muslims to hang their own evil mullahs in about seven years time. There is no good mullah on the planet.
Actually the revolution against islam has started in saudi-arabia….just watch….. we live in interesting times…that is if some devout muslim doesn’t get us first !! Deadly…..we live in Deadly times.
islam is on the way out…..there is no other way ….it is resisting death…..while multiplying like mad ….and mullahs are not scientists and mohammad was an illiterate swine of a man who thought the sun sets in a puddle everyday…what would mohammad have known ? ….nothing !! ….so they are actually exploding into each other’s faces…. muslims are showing us humans how dangerous and illiterate over population actually is. All we have to do is watch this violent cult make space for each other over each other’s dead bodies. islam….the cult of the semi-retarded and illiterates. But the point is the idiotic crossfire that surrounds islam. Not-healthy to be in or around islam .
If you look at a muslim’s forehead you’ll see dark scar tissue from constant literal head banging on the floor. 5 times a day they bang their heads many times repeatedly on the floor. Can you imagine the self-inflicted brain trauma. Medically and literally muslims are retarding themselves. It is dangerous to be around such brain damaged people.
MoBoy was an absolute idiot so we can surmise that the first muslims must have been absolute cowards. Muslims act proud and they kill others because of shame.
Shame is a muslim’s drawback because he knows islam is twisted and warped but he can’t do anything about it or change it because cult-leader Mo said questioning anything is BLASPHEMY. Muslims are finished.
And in this fight to the finish within islam will take away so much of our planet’s varied culture and science. Every dead non-muslim person is a lost resource and every dead muslim is good-riddance for our planet. It’s not politically correct to say it but It’s a fact.
Islam cannot be modern or elevate women ….just these 2 two simple observations and those scar-tissues on muslim heads can tell us where islam is going to take us as a modern species. In the dust-bin.
All your space rockets will not work under islam. If it’s not in the koran it’s useless knowledge. A mad-rassa is not a university…..a mad-rassa is a toilet for knowledge. Read the koran…it’s pure trash. Pure. An Islamic scholar is not a man of knowledge…he’s man of No-ledge. An Islamic scholar only knows the Koran by heart. Nothing else. An Islamic scholar does not know any history except idiotic Saudi history…an Islamic scholar does not know any geography or science or mathamatics or ethics or anything …he only knows the stupid Koran by heart. WOW…illiteracy at it’s best ….. An Islamic scholar is actually an oxymoron. Muslims are finished…and so are we.

If a book is not Arabic..burn it….is the muslim motto.
I’M not a Christian but what the world needs today is a tough pope to smash islam.
What will happen to us as a species? How far will we progress before islam bombs our science? How long will islam last ? How many muslims will there be on the planet in the next 10 ten years ? Deadly…. what will happen when islam is everything. Only arab history will be taught and then what ? End of our lovely civilisation. Will islam ever be defeated? Will islam ever be cleansed from our planet ? What will happen to us ? Why can’t we bomb mecca to smithereens and say it was allah’s will.
In and on the Georgia Guidestones…why is arabic included ? If any culling has to be done ..islam and the arabs and muslims will be the first to be culled. There is no better option. Gas will be cheaper and science will flourish and there will be no strife with the islam monster smashed and canned. Culling is a good tool… the arabs and muslims even know what a great planet EARTH will be if they and islam were not in or on it ? EARTH WITHOUT ISLAM AND MUSLIMS. …sounds so cool.

11 August 16, 2012 at 3:11 pm

There is absolutely no option….they have become a different damaged amd damaging species. Culling is the only option because trade cannot be done amongst semi-retards with violent and savage immorals of ages ago with no scope of change. Heavy ….how will it happen ?

Hey Doc, I am approving these messages, for now, but go easy. True we are a counterjihad blog, but let’s try to keep it civil. People who read these comments may be “on the fence.” If so, we want them to come to our side and not the other.
