Why some geeks to gurus do not like javascript - one of the reason I heard of that it can be easily hijacked? any other thoughts and my God, why?

Browser vulnerabilities have nothing at all to do with JavaScript as a language.

Issues like XSS (Cross-site scripting) have to do with sloppy coding, not anything inherent in the language.

The Ninja book does cover how to avoid security pitfalls when doing things like run-time code evaluation, which can introduce vulnerabilities when coded without care.
