The article presents the author's comments on many Islamic doctors becoming doctors. The author states that the Nazi doctors carried out genocidal programs and seven of the eight suspects of the London, England bombings are doctors. He discusses the writings of Islamic terrorist Sayyid Qutb that depicts Islam as a totalitarian ideology leading doctors to indulge in psychological fantasies. He emphasizes that spiritual arrogance in terrorists overrides a doctor's oath of not harming others.
