Isis: Mothers of radicalised jihadists form support group to deter children from terrorism

Mothers of radicalised Western jihadists have formed a support group to stop young men turning to terrorism.

Canadian Christianne Boudreau, whose 22-year-old son Damien died while fighting with al-Nusrah, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, has formed Mothers for Life alongside Daniel Koehler, director of the German Institute on Radicalization and De-Radicalization Studies (GIRDS).

It aims to support mothers whose children have become radicalised and to develop programmes to raise awareness of the social media tactics deployed by Islamic State to gain recruits.

    The only way to ‘de-radicalise’ Muslims is to demonstrate to them that Islam is a false religion. Anything else is a waste of time.

    I can make it real simple for you. If it has anything to do with Islam it is evil and eventually they will be radicalized or killed by their fellows in the faith that feel they are not committed enough.

    I saw her interviewed on Sun News a few times. She is a twit. She was okay at first when her son converted to Islam because she thought it gave him some purpose in his life. The problem in her mind was to stop the radicalization.

    Another waste of time and capital. (which governments will readily offer)
    Attack and vilify real experts and listen to idiot parents that failed to recognize the radical crap pouring from their own children. Opportunist shit bag!
