Can Western Muslims Be De-radicalized?

Stopping the radicalization of young Muslims has become a focal point of political and academic discussion in the West as thousands of Western Muslims have traveled to jihadist training camps in Syria and Iraq. The attacks in Paris in 2015 and in Brussels and Nice in 2016 have also heightened fears of terrorism in the West perpetrated by returning jihadists. Along with an intensification of intelligence and surveillance operations, three main courses of action have been deliberated and partially implemented by Western governments: banning or limiting the freedom of preachers who, while not endorsing violence, openly oppose liberal values and envision an Islamic future for the West; setting up domestic programs to prevent or reverse radicalization by enhancing integration of Muslim communities and persuading citizens who have joined jihadist groups to return home; and fighting the Islamic State (or ISIS) on its home turf with the aim of destroying it.

    Sure they can. I usually involves a high speed copper jacketed projectile though.

  • Use RICO like statutes to close down ALL mosques and arrest ALL mullahs as participants in organised crime.

    That will be a good first start.

    Then outlaw all signs of Islam from the public square. That means no, Islamic clothing, no halal foods, no Islamic nothing. Then arrest any and all trying to promote Islam.

    That will take care of most of the problem.

    I don’t think warfare or legalized discrimination by itself will have the desired effect.

    What really needs to done is to expose Islam as the vicious fraudulent ideology it is. Robert Spencer, David Wood and Bill Warner should be household names, and the anti-Islam information should be a loud, steady drumbeat. Apostates from Islam should be as popular as Reality TV stars. I don’t think warfare or legalized discrimination by itself will have the desired effect.

    • I suggest we accommodate Islam and make as many martyrs as they desire.

  • Hard Little Machine

    No. Europe let them in and let them thrive and flourish BECAUSE they’re insane and violent. That’s a winning strategy for Muslims

    Why is there no heightened support for smarter Muslims ready to walk away from the death cult?

    “Can Western Muslims Be De-Radicalized?”

    No they cannot, because they are not ‘radicalised’ in the first place. They are Muslims; it is as simple as that.

    This is what they are and what they do, have always done and will continue to do until they are either eradicated here or expelled from the Western Ecumene in their entirety.

    The best we can do at this point is to get them by threats and incentives to rat on their comrades.

  • Blacksmith

    I don’t think it is possible, eradication is the only cure.

    Short answer, no.
