Fountain Hills jihadist shooting raises questions about “blue balls theory of terrorism”

OPINION

PHOENIX — The release of recent video footage of the officer involved in the shooting of 18 year-old Jihadist Ismail Hamed has raised questions as to the legitimacy of the “blue balls theory of terrorism.” The video shows Hamed and a Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputy engaged in the phenomenon known as “suicide by cops.”

In the case of Hamed, who advised a 911 operator that he had pledged allegiance to ISIS, it appears to some to be a case of attempted martyrdom by cop.

The young wanna-be martyr, in a calm and deliberate manner, advised the operator that he was equipped with rocks and a knife and insisted that an officer come to his location.

Upon arrival to Hamed’s location, the officer repeatedly urged Hamed to drop his knife. The young warrior ignored the demands and lunged for the officer leaving him little option, but to shoot him.

Amazingly, after the deputy shot him twice at close range, Hamad survived his wounds.

It is Hamed’s demeanor that has led to speculation that the young man, trapped in the western world while trying to be devoted to his faith, may have wanted to expedite his reward of 72 virgins. Experts say that a misinterpretation promises 72 virgins as a reward for martyrdom, but some scholars suggest the correct interpretation of the Quran is a promise of 72 raisins; a common reward in the seventh century.

Gilbert Caluya, writing in the Journal of Media & Cultural Studies, describes the ‘blue balls theory of terrorism’ as a theory that “posits that terrorism is caused by the pent-up sexual frustration of men in the developing world who are unable to satisfy their lusts.” The theory is dismissed by radical theorists as a “hegemonic model” designed by the privileged to marginalize those outside the western world.

However, in the case of young Hamed and other unstable young men trying to live within the confines of their faith while dealing with raging hormones, and under the influence of extremists such as ISIS, the ‘blue balls theory of terrorism’ seems more likely than not to be the culprit.

Experts argue that “Emotions play a role in the Suicide Bomber by creating a pressing need to do something (Tosini, 2010). Suicide Bombers are fueled by hatred, anger, and indignation. This is a familiar motivation for many lone wolf shooters in the United States. One such, was Elliot Rodger, the Incel killer. Rodger ended up killing over ten people in Isla Vista, California. Elliot Rodger was a sexually frustrated young man who self-identified as an incel. His online video manifestos revealed that he was full of rage and anger caused by others who he perceived to be happy; going as far as spilling coffee and tea on happy couples at Starbucks in an incident years before the shooting (Duke, 2014).

Incel: Incels are members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one, a state they describe as inceldom. Self-identified incels are largely white and are almost exclusively male heterosexuals. Wikipedia

  1. I can just see a martyr looking at his hand with 72 raisins,
    “what the he!! is this?!, Where are my women? I want a do over”

  2. We don’t believe in pedophile or child molestation that so many other countries practice. Might be the reason for the “blue balls”. Just sayin’

  3. Sadly the deputy mistakenly aimed for center mass, had he aimed for Mr. Hamed’s crotch, not only would he have cured Mr. Hamed’s rock throwing in support of Palestine, but he would have effectively removed his defective genes from all future generations.
    While the western world reassures itself that we aren’t at war with Islam, we fail to comprehend the facts that Islam is clearly at war with us. The ideology and motivation behind the actions of Mr. Hamed against the deputy are clear for anyone who’s watching. His publicly declared anti American support for a Islamic terrorists state is clear in his rant to the 911 operator.
    When will America finally awaken and accept the truth that fundamental Islam is little more than a mental disorder?

    The Oracle

    • I agree, when are people going to wake up to the fact that Islam is most definitely at war with the U.S., at war with freedom of religion,with freedom of speech and of course the freedom of a woman to do as she sees fit, to dress, vote and to go anywhere she pleases, let alone drop kick some abusive,cheating husband by means of her divorcing him!
      Have we become so politically correct, and sensitive that we don’t want to hurt peoples feelings that we are blind to the threat Americans face and does nothing?.
      If that’s the case then I can see FGM, burkas in dark black, and a society where women are less than donkeys and dogs are put to death?
      Wake up American women, this really concerns you more than men, although both will be subjugated.

  4. “Speculation that the young man, trapped in the western world while trying to be devoted to his faith.” That’s just a load of crap. He’s not trapped. He could have left the U.S. anytime he wanted to. He’s just another turd.
