Public Safety Canada issued a call for five new research projects into a variety of terrorism-related topics Wednesday, including the domestic impact of international conflict and the role of the internet in terrorist recruiting.
“A prominent threat facing Canada’s national security . . . is radicalization leading to violence, including homegrown violent extremism,” reads the call for proposals.
“These cases are rare, but the impact of an act of terrorism is potentially enormous, with serious and lasting psychological and emotional harm to a large number of individuals, as well as economic impact and/or the creation or escalation of tensions between communities and countries.”
The research will consider a number of questions:
How does the “psychology of the internet” play into terrorist activities and recruitment?
What are the domestic impacts of international conflicts, such as the war in Iraq?
What are the gender dynamics involved in radicalization to violence?
How are resources transferred to terrorist organizations? How are those resources moved and used?
What makes people susceptible to recruitment into violent extremism?
The research will be funded by the Kanishka Project, a five-year, $10 million fund created in 2011 to study security issues.
You frickin cowards. The answers are right before your eyes – It’s the Islam Stupid.
I have some better, more pointed questions for study.
Whose idea was it to double Canada’s Muslim population since 911?
Why can’t the cowards who unleashed a 7th Century Death Cult on Canada ever mention “Islam”?
Why are Canadian tax payers expected to pick up the tab to civilize 3rd world barbarians?
Why do these people still have jobs?
