So much for all the tough talk about not letting them back in.
To “deradicalize” a Muslim, you use Muslim clergy. So you can see where this is going. It’s like putting drug dealers in charge of Narcotics Anonymous and Jihadists back on the streets of London.
“Deradicalization” is a scam because the instructors are often every bit as “radical” as the students. There’s no way for current Western leaders to distinguish bad from good because their metrics involve things like democracy which leaves the Muslim Brotherhood in.
The Saudis began pushing the deradicalization scam even though their mosques and Imams were the ones pushing the hard Salafi lines.
British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria will be forced to attend “deradicalisation” programmes to reverse their warped brainwashing, David Cameron announced.
Dangerous fanatics made subject to court controls will be ordered to engage in anti-extremism schemes as part of a raft of new measures to combat the risk of British Islamists returning to the UK.
At least 500 are feared to have travelled out and half are now back on the streets of the UK, potentially plotted attacks here.
Under the proposals, any terror suspect placed under a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (Tpims) will now be forced to engage in the Government’s Prevent programme, which tackles radicalisation.
The Al Furqan programme, which is run in prisons, uses Imams to challenge the views of extremist Islam through religious teaching.
The Healthy Identities Intervention is a more introspective approach where psychotherapists try to discover what triggered terrorists to become radicalised.
There are no words for how stupid this is. Instead of denationalizing foreign fighters, the UK is going to force them to attend lectures by equally Jihad supporting Imams and talk to shrinks to understand why they want to kill people.
Wouldn’t just surrendering to ISIS be simpler and easier?
