The below article got me thinking;

CNN claim ISIS is luring women with kittens and Nutella | Daily Mail Online

Within the Protestant world women tend to be attracted to and bloom within the more pietistic and mystical or at least emotional currents within Protestantism as opposed to drier more legalistic and rationalistic ones. Now Salafi as opposed to Sufi influenced Sunni Islam is an utterly dry, legalist and pseudo-rationalist form of Religion that teaches you can't even love God because He is so beyond us and any belief that you can is sinful illusion so religious activity is taken up with studying and applying to your life a myriad of often very silly rules. To me on the face of it I would find it surreal that any feminine temperament would be attracted to it however it is a simple that a lot are. In fact ISIS seems to have more support in the UK among women than it does among men. What is up with this?

Well that could well be part of it but I don't think it explains it entirely; if girls are looking for that Mormonism or Odinism would do just as well. Maybe its an attraction to violence, as Ultra-Leftists go the Maoists are the group among them that I respect the most however there can be no denying that Maoism has a sometimes very psycho indeed cult of violence yet we see that they are Ultra-Leftist current that most attracts women (Maoist groups tend to be at least fifty per cent if not more made up of women).

probably a certain type of bird, there is probably a psychological profile. its like why are some women attracted to wife beating thugs, rationally and statistically it wont end well but like moths to flame in they go.

Why would a woman, growing up in Ireland, become a Benedictine nun, thereby locking herself away from the outside world for her entire life ?

Religion has a very odd effect on people, especially the vulnerable or unhappy.

It's a combination of gorgeous looks and stylish threads:

They are groomed and led to believe that they are the most precious thing on the planet, and by the time they realise these scumbags real intentions its to late.

Ratio does not know what attracts women to religious and political extremism.

All the indigenous people from England and Wales I know of who became Muslim had been in the BNP before. My waters tell me that if this investigated you would find that if this was the norm among white people in Britain who convert to Islam. Merc lad has been accused of being Pro-Islam over on the other place by the Counter-Jihadists but in reality he isn't at all, if he were to get Religion he would become a mainline wishy washy Anglican or a Bahai or something similar.

Jonathan Bowden said that Islam would only be able to conquer Europe either through demographics or violence but it would never be able to make any serious at all inroads into the indigenous population either intellectually or spiritually because its approach to things is very alien to the Western mind outside of certain forms of Sufism and groups on the fringes of the Shia. I agree with him there (Jonathan Bowden actually respected Islam- he just didn't want it have any power or influence in Britain, a lot of people in the BNP were actually far more thoughtful and nuanced than the media gave them credit for). The interplay between both ethnicity and gender with Religion is an extremely interesting topic, at least for me, but if you are not going to approach it in a silly Feminist manner you wont be able to discuss it in Western Universities today because of Libtardism; such a shame! The decline and destruction of European Academic tradition to me is one of the most tragic phenomena of our times.

I find it next to impossible to figure out the appeal of Rabbinic Judaism and Salafi influenced Sunni Islam particularly for women. A Nordic-Celtic versus Semitic thing? Very possibly; however things from Syriac Christianity such as the Spiritual Homilies of the "Pseudo-Macarius" (which have always been extremely popular among the Russian Orthodox), the Dionysian Corpus, the Odes of Solomon, the poetry of St Epheram the Syrian, the writings of St Isaac of Ninveh as well as other stuff play a much bigger part in my Spirituality than Western Scholasticism does. I am very comfortable in that Semitic world. Mind you both the Zionists and the Radical Sunni Muslims are engaged in a drive to completely wipe out Syriac Christendom from the Middle East.

Well, if CNN reported it, it probably isn't true.

Windowshopper doesn't seem to realize that forms of religious and political extremism greatly differ between themselves.

Anyway I reject the assertion that I am either a religious or political extremist (I belong to the Pope Benedict XVI wing of the Church as opposed to the SSPX or whatever and am an old fashioned Christian Socialist which is far from being some breed of Ultra-Leftist). Mind you Windowshopper has this completely lula idea that Alive is the epitome of Religious fanaticism.

Depends on the woman (or should I say girl, because most of them are).

The celebrated cases in the UK of girls running away to the Syrian front etc always seem to involve some combination of teenage boredom, parental alienation, romantic frustration, and the internet. They are primed to look for excitement and a sense of identity within the cultural parameters they have inherited. Interestingly enough, most of them arent solo operators - they have a close girl gang which shares the fantasy with them.

I suspect their girlfriends are more important to them than any putative Jihadi bridegroom or religious/political belief. In the same way as groupies followed pop stars in the 70s, eagerly reporting back to each other whom they had scored.

Its all very sad.
