Report on radicalization at Collège de Maisonneuve points to certain “fragilities” among students
“…But far from identifying particular people or places within the college that might have been influencing the youths, the report paints a stark picture of how the events of 2015 shook the college community and created tensions between groups that in turn could foster extremism.
“In the street it’s impossible,” said one of 27 students who volunteered to participate in the study. “Me, in the street, on the bus, I am harassed, people look at me funny, sometimes they jostle me, and attack me.”
The media coverage and the ensuing public discourse following the departures led to Muslims on campus feeling targeted, and potentially looking for a sense of belonging amid radical groups, said Frédéric Dejean, who led the research for the Institut de recherche sur l’intégration professionelle des immigrants (IRIPI).
“We are not saying it’s the media’s fault. But there were certain ways of covering the issue, that put the emphasis on Collège de Maisonneuve and on Muslims and that seemed to blame the Muslim community,” Dejean said. “That’s what the students told us.”
Uhm I’m gonna go out on a limb here and suggest this unwanted attention on the Muslim community might be due to the fact that this same Muslim community keeps spawning Muslim terrorists the Whole F&cking World Over.
