HenrikDayPoulsenAn interview with Henrik Day Poulsen, psychiatrist, Ph.D., translated by Nicolai Sennels for 10news.dk:

Our laws are not geared to understand or cope with the fundamentalist mind. Their perception of reality is completely intact, unlike that of the insane person, whose mind is completely chaotic and who would therefore never will be able to plan a professional attack such as the one we witnessed in Paris Wednesday this week. …
And here we find a very important point where you have to understand how a fanatic thinks. They break all the social norms and rules that we take for granted. Norms like respect and being fair, considerate and trustworthy become secondary to the fight for what the fanatic wants to achieve. The end justifies the means. Untrustworthiness, falsehood, deceit and manipulation are fully acceptable when acting in the name of God. Even though the scripture says that one is not allowed to lie.
Understanding such standards is important when trying to understand a fanatic. And if you understand the fanatic mind, you will know why constructive dialogue is impossible. Obviously, a fanatic will show up and discuss issues with politicians, as we see in the media. But when the camera is turned off and everyone has gone home, they laugh in their beard and prepare the next fanatical deed. In the name of God, of course. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2015/01/psychiatrist-paris-jihadis-arent-psychopaths-theyre-islamic-fundamentalists
