Much Like Those Wacky Kids In The Manson Cult: Globe Calls Aspiring ISIS Jihadis Rebellious Teenage Idealists

The Montreal would-be jihadi 10, and what comes next

“Teenagers in rebellion, many of whom are as likely to be idealists, however misguided, as aspiring holy warriors, would benefit far more from intelligent dialogue, education and a chance to change their minds. A sincere attempt at reprogramming is required – through conversations that counter the allure of ISIS with both persuasive arguments and an empathetic understanding of what it is that can drive young students to such a state. Removing a passport may be necessary. By itself, it’s insufficient.”

    Yes I can remember my wild and wacky days as a teenager in rural Ontario where a bunch of us would spend Saturdays, beheading people in the streets, blowing up churches, and taking over wide swaths of the countryside. Ahhh, those were the days.

    • Who can forget the setting people on fire and then filming it? Boy, but one can’t help but be nostalgic.

  • I wanna watch that movie!

    what is needed is their summary execution and the deportation of their entire families

    Editorialists and their media bosses are part of the problem. They want gory violence because it sells.

    Cat, thanks for posting this inane, mindless editorial. I decided to write and post a supportive comment (quote in quotes), adopting the same 85-IQ terminology as in the editorial, blaming the Syrian war on Stephen Harper and his fellow-travelling Zionists, just for fun
    And funny enough, by parody-comment is the most-liked comment of the bunch. So not only did my comment make it past the Globe s George Orwell-1964 censor, it appeals to the neo-fascist Glove readers.

  • Oh God, some of the comments at the Globe.

    “These are “idealists” who likely in an earlier era would have done our country a great service as peace activists and supporters of the oppressed in Canada. In a global economy 14 years of war and counting will have detrimental effects on all Canadians. Give peace a chance”

    “Would the problem with radicalized youth be as severe if Canada and not abandonned its (at times, albeit selectively) more nuanced stance and traditional role as honest middle broker in foreign affairs?”

    • Good Lord, that is insane.

      What dreamers! Unbelievable.

    I see crap like this constantly. (from articles I find with Google alerts).

    I wouldn’t even have thought it worth posting. The entire MSM thinks like this.

    The British PREVENT Program = DID NOT WORK
    …mostly because the Muslims felt targeted as a community
    =therefore the community did not want to FIX THEIR community terrorism problem
    Which leaves us in the West to either
    put up and shut up
    not let any more Muslims in
