How Likely Is Deradicalization?

Will radical Muslims line up to be deprogrammed and end up teaching kindergarten or devising a twelve-step program for their younger siblings? Since the start of deradicalization programs, the number of radicalized Muslims has risen.

Why is there no Muslim Peace Movement campaigning for an end to violence in Muslim countries? Why do Muslims — and others — take to the streets to condemn democratic Israel, yet never march to protest Hamas’s use of Palestinians as human shields, or the violence of al-Qaeda, Boko Haram or any other jihadi group? Why not be angry at the way violent Muslims drag the image of non-violent Muslims in the mud? Many Muslims, however, complain about “Islamophobia” while ignoring the primary causes of hostility to themselves.

Muslims are trapped, because the Qur’an and the ahadith, which make up the holy writ, all condone or command jihad and hatred for non-believers, and they do so abundantly.
