The volcanic iceberg mentality of the Jihadi is a psychotic adaptation, a result  of children having been treated as objects when they were infants.  Underneath the frozen, cold image lies a seething cauldron of rage ready to explode.  In this type of society children learn to repress their feelings.  As a consequence, internal rage boils within the personality.  On the one hand the mother is idealized as a powerful object, and on the other her power is perceived as toxic and must be destroyed.
