The Maternal Drama of the Chechen Jihadi pdf free download. The aim of this book is to demystify terrorist behavior from a psychoanalytic perspective for the lay public, the military, law enforcement, as well as therapists who may have difficulty understanding how terrorism works. It sheds light on the combustible combination of factors inherent in being raised in a shame-honor culture and religion. Its intent is to help readers understand terrorist behavior using the tools and insights drawn from psychoanalysis. This knowledge will facilitate better and earlier interventions for terrorism rather than feed the existing cycle of violence. In this book I use the phrase volcanic iceberg mentality to describe the behavior of the Chechen jihadi in general and the Tsarnaev brothers in particular. In Iceland the icebergs have active volcanoes beneath them, with the potential to make a global impact on the environment.1 I appropriate this image as a metaphor for Chechen jihadis, who appear cold as ice, while simultaneously lurking below the surface is a violent, murderous personality that is undetectable to the untrained eye. The volcanic iceberg mentality is a narrative descriptor of the Chechen jihadis’ lack of empathy; their obsession with warrior weaponry, fire, and rage; and their murder and maiming of innocent men, women, and children. Of utmost importance is understanding the impact of a shame–honor culture and religion such as that in Chechnya, and how problematic child-rearing practices unintentionally prevent children from acquiring empathy.
