Jihad Rehab Program To Get Second Participant

A 20-year-old Eagan, Minn., man could become the second person to enter the country’s only jihadi rehab program.

Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State, and while he awaits sentencing, three sources familiar with the case tell NPR that he is likely to join a defendant named Abdullahi Yusuf in the emerging de-radicalization program in the Twin Cities.

Until recently, U.S. counterterrorism officials had seen building a curriculum to defuse extremist ideology as unnecessary — there weren’t enough young men and women seeking to join terrorist organizations to make rehabilitation a priority. Instead, incarceration seemed like enough of an answer.

    I think a very effective Jihad Rehab Program might involve an unescorted day trip to a pig farm conducted by the families of their victims!

    If it is a PC approved budget item for government depts , the rent seekers with suitable political patronage connections will come.

    Should anyone wish to embark on this academic trail of unicorn droppings, let me share a name to research. Nicolas Sennels. He tried mightily to rehab musloid prisoners in Swedish prisons with zero success. He even authored a book on the subject. So the academic Don Quixotes level their lances to change the windmill’s minds. Trouble is, they don’t want their minds changed by the dirty Kuffars and will do anything to make sure their inner being continues to submit to Islamofascist ideology. Say goodbye to lots of dollars and man hours.

    Sounds like some sort of diversion.
