The MATERNAL DRAMA of the CHECHEN JIHADI is the first book to examine the impact of shaming practices on the crippling development of a personality, causing it to become radicalized later on to engage in jihad. The terrorist attacks carried out by Shamil Basayev are examined under a psychoanalytic lens shedding new light. The author proposes a unique way to decode his terrifying graphic attacks on a maternity hospital the Moscow Theatre and the Beslan school. The Chechen jihadi has become a brand into its own. These terrorists do not develop empathy due to the position of the devalued female in these shame honor cultures, (specifically Chechen culture and its warrior tradition.) The book also looks at the dysfunctional family dynamics of the Tsarnaev Brothers who carried out the triple Waltham Homicides at the Boston Marathon. A special chapter analyzes the crossover effect of jihadism's political violence jumps categories and ignites and fuels mass murder shooters and domestic violence's murder-suicide. The author also draws parallels to Somali jihadis such as Al Shabaab.

About the Author
After 9/11 the U.S. Army at Fort Leonard Wood asked Dr. Kobrin to help them understand the relationship between the devalued female in Arab Muslim shame-honor culture and the spawning of Islamic suicide terrorism. Her analytic training allowed her to develop a theory for the suicide attack that explained its unconscious derivatives within the scope of the family. This was published in her 2010 book, The Banality of Suicide Terrorism, available from Potomac. The Hebrew translation appeared in 2013 with a forward written by professor emeritus Gideon Kressel, one of Israel's leading experts on the Bedouins. Her second book, Penetrating the Terrorist Psyche, published in 2013 and available at multieducator.com, explains the importance of early childhood development and expounds on the onset of terrorism as it occurs during maternal attachment and bonding. It focuses on the interlocking links of domestic violence, domestic terrorism, and political violence. Dr. Kobrin is a graduate of the Human Terrain System program in Leavenworth, Kansas.
