Protection from Mental Abuse and Manipulation


“I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak. From the evil of that which He created. And from the evil of darkness when it settles. And from the evil of the blowers in knots. And from the evil of an envier when he envies.” ~ Surat Al-Falaq

“I wanted to go and study the religion … hoping that Allah is gonna cure me one day from the evil inside that I used to believe. But the doctors are saying it’s not evil — it’s mental illness.” ~ Sami Osmakac

What I describe in this article – entrappement and manipulation of people – can be done by any determined individual or group. Not only US intelligence services are involved in such activties, Russia has over the last decade launched an entire new generation propaganda machinery on humanity. Their age-old tactic is to infiltrate the disenfranchised and to radicalise social margins on the right and left of the political spectrum and bring through them confusion and chaos into mainstream culture.

We live both in an age of mass-surveilance and new media / old purpose propaganda machineries and we need to urgently start talking about mental self-protection and how to teach people not to serially end up as canon fodder for political game players. Terrorists and their horrors play their own role in the current political mayhem. I appeal to everybody who has violent and extremist thoughts to astain from hatred and think long and hard about their actual reality (do you believe everything?) and if the reality that is projected by propagandists really match their own will and life experience. Who ultimately really benefits from violence and bloodshed? And would it really solve anything? Stay away from people who push you into confusion and hatred! There is no gain in destruction. Do not talk easily about violence, war and how you want to participate in warfare against others. Do not make friends with evil and evil people. Stay away from haters. Propaganda’s sole purpose is to capture the imagination. Do not allow your imagination to be taken. Stay in the ONE truth.

I was considering for many days, if I should pick the case of Sami Osmakac, an unfortunate Muslim man who was misguided and ended up being sentenced to 40 years in prison for terrorism by entrappment through the FBI. I wish to describe briefly the evils of his mental manipulation and how our mind-soul sends us messages to speak to us about the dangers we are in.

The case of Sami Osmakac reads like hundreds of others similar to his:

Sami Osmakac was 13 years old when he came from Kosovo to the United States with his family. Sami wasn’t particularly drawn to Islam in his early youth, according to his family. After a trip to Kosovo his mental demena started to change however and he started to search for his roots, and Islam. He eventually met a converted man at a local Wahhabi mosque in Tampa, Florida, who later turned out to be an FBI informant. Sami drifted deeper into Wahhabism under the influence of this man. An expression of Sami’s deteriorating mental well being and increasing entrappment was that he started sleeping on the floor of his bedroom and complained about nightmares in which he burned in hell. Unable to interpret the signs, Osmakac’s friendship intensified with the red-bearded revert who would lead him eventually to a man called Abdul Raouf Dabus who was another FBI informant and into the entrappment that would eventually get him sentenced to 40 years in prison for “terrorism”.

I assume that Sami’s nightmares increased the more this so called “friendships” with these two men and various FBI agents that posed as Muslim fundamentalists intensified. He very obviously mis-interpreted these nightmares to be an expression of Allah’s wish for him to sacrifice himself and that he is not loved by God and not a good believer. All of these negative assumptions about himself the FBI and their informants exploited, feeding him ever more stories about himself being a looser, a tosser, an unworthy idiot and so on. Sadly, these demons in human form succeeded to bring Sami into hell.

“We need to be alert about everybody who attempts to project negativity on to us.”

We need to be alert about everybody who attempts to project negativity on to us, puts words into our mouths, makes assumptions, subverts us by using our fear against us, leads us into twisted feelings about ourselfs and others and brings hatred into our hearts. Such manipulations and manipulators can work very subtle, but their ultimate aim is to use us and make us the instruments of darkness. We can strongly feel such subversions at work, they make us sick and dizzy and our dreams are strong messengers of the dangers we are in. We are not mentally ill when we have strong dreams and strong visions, but we need to get in touch with aspects of our life that are hidden from our conccious realm. We are protected against the evils of mental manipulation when we always remember that Allah is love. Allah does punish, but not in such ways as the false prophets proclaim. Allah does not see us with a long list of our deficits in his hand. Allah sees in us potential and goodness, light and ability and this is our truth. Allah is all-encompassing, wholesome, complete, and we find always refuge in his mercy and love even when he puts us through severe trials. The psychology of deficit, self-hatred and hatred of others is not Islam, but the demonic trap of the Dajjal, that entraps thousands of Samis in this world and exploits them for it’s horrific evil wars and crimes against humanity and Allah. It is most describing that Psychology and Psychiatry have deteriorated to become the instruments of choice for mental abuse and control. However, these instruments of attempted control are nothing against the real power of God and his unlimited truth.

In this context I want to refer to The Guardian newspaper who has just reported on new revelations about the active involvement of the American Psychiatric Association in the torture of Muslim terror “suspects”:  The APA was actively involved in the development and execution of various torture techniques (aimed at Muslims in particular). Psychologists involved in the programme persuaded the CIA to adopt particular stress positions, temperature and dietary manipulation, sleep deprivation and waterboarding in interrogation.

The American Psychiatrist Association has rejected media reporting on psychologists’ complicity in torture; suppressed internal dissent from anti-torture doctors; cleared members of wrongdoing; and portrayed itself as a consistent ally against abuse.”

“For more than a decade, the American Psychological Association (APA) has maintained that a strict code of ethics prohibits its more than 130,000 members to aid in the torture of detainees while simultaneously permitting involvement in military and intelligence interrogations. The group has rejected media reporting on psychologists’ complicity in torture; suppressed internal dissent from anti-torture doctors; cleared members of wrongdoing; and portrayed itself as a consistent ally against abuse.

Now, a voluminous independent review conducted by a former assistant US attorney, David Hoffman, undermines the APA’s denials in full – and vindicates the dissenters.”

Ultimately the psychologists in Sami Osmacak’s trial were of course entirely wrong – it was indeed evil that made it’s way into Sami, and his nightmares were a warning expression of it.
