The reports are in and it turns out that there’s no way to spot a violent Muslim extremist, because they don’t really exist and apart from calling themselves Soldiers of Allah and defending the Taliban, there are no warning signs whatsoever before they commit an act of
terrorism workplace violence.
The Defense Science Board report urges military officials not to ignore signs of religious radicalism that may be politically sensitive, and sought to debunk the notion that Islam is the only religion that fuels extremism.
“Covering over or ignoring radical religious belief as a potential factor will greatly handicap efforts to discover and divert individuals who are on a trajectory toward engaging in targeted violence,” the report said.
Yes, which is why the Defense Science Board insists on handicapping and diverting efforts to stop Muslims on a violent trajectory by pretending that all sorts of religions scream Allah Akbar before going on killing sprees. Next thing you know the Buddhists will be doing it.
The report insists on describing Muslim terrorist attacks as workplace violence. This makes it even harder to respond and head off such attacks because they are not the product of disgruntled employees, but fanatical killers waiting for the moment to strike. It’s like trying to fight serial killers by pretending that they’re just burglars who get really confused.
“While a number of cases involved radical Islam, there were examples involving Christianity, and the potential exists for radicalization to occur in the context of other religions as well.”.
Sure. The potential exists for a lot of things, but efforts are directed at real world problems. This is why the Air Force is not developing training methods for bombing dinosaurs. Dinosaurs do have the potential to come back and begin ravaging Montana, but it’s not a current problem.
There is currently a shortage of Christians and Buddhists opening fire on American soldiers in the name of Allah. It could happen at any time and it could happen while they’re riding dinosaurs, but it’s not an actual serious threat at the moment.
The study found “no silver bullet” to address the threat of workplace violence, and said predicting it is extremely difficult. Current scientific methods for predicting workplace violence, such as psychological or physiological testing, are unreliable, the study found.
No silver bullet, but perhaps a pork bullet might do the trick.
But here’s one possible method. When a Muslim begins claiming to be a Soldier of Allah, rather than an American Soldier, and sticks that claim on his business cards, that’s one possible variable that can be fitted into a scientific method for not allowing Jihadists free reign on American bases.
