Renowned psychologist says, "Muslims become suicide bombers because they don't get laid enough"

Evolutionary psychologist, Satoshi Kanazawa, has made a controversial declaration that links suicide bombers with sex, or rather the lack thereof.

UK DAILY MAIL– While suicide missions are not always religiously motivated, when religion is involved, it is always Muslim, says Kanazawa.

Kanazawa states that in societies where polygamy is allowed – taking more than one wife, such as in Islam –  there is a necessary number of men who are unable to mate because of the simple mathematics involved.

He says this is what makes men more violent or aggressive – they are competing for a mate.

According to his theory, this increased competitive pressure on men ‘increases the likelihood that young men resort to violent means to gain access to mates because they have little to lose and much to gain by doing so, compared to men who already have wives.’

This is why, across all societies, polygamy increases violent crimes, such as murder and rape, even after controlling for such obvious factors like economic development, economic inequality, population density, the level of democracy and world regions.’

He goes on to say that the idea that 72 virgins await a martyr can inspire young men in this situation to go on to become suicide bombers.

He writes: ‘For young, low-status Muslim men who are excluded from any mating opportunities because of polygamy among older, higher-status men, even such a vague promise in the afterlife begins to be appealing in light of their bleak  reproductive prospect on earth.’
