The troubling US post-prison experiment to ‘rehabilitate’ an ISIS supporter

When a young man from Minnesota’s Somali community who admitted trying to join ISIS appeared for sentencing in November, the judge made him an offer: avoid more prison time and participate in an experimental “terrorist rehabilitation.”

But two months ago Abdullahi Yusuf, 21, was back before the judge charged with violating the terms of his probation after watching a news documentary about western ISIS fighters in a halfway house where he is confined.

    It really is that simple.

    Jihad is war, not a crime. Most judges don’t get it.

      I know and yet we insist on trying them in domestic criminal court instead of a military tribunal or court. It is insane.

    ‘Raheel Raza, President of the Council of Muslims Facing Tomorrow, which endeavors to reclaim Islam and opposes extremism, said de-radicalization can work – if only by “exposing the problem, educating the masses and eliminating the ideology”.’

    Mrs. Raza is not endeavouring to ‘reclaim’ islam, she is chasing a unicorn which never existed. I do agree with her on these points though:

    We have to expose the problem, which is islam.
    We have to educate the masses, meaning the infidels, about the problem.
    And we have to eliminate the ideology, which means eliminating islam.

    Why do we keep trying to invent a square wheel? This approach was tried over years in Europe. The outcome? Another leftist fantasy destroyed by reality. Those rehabbed against their will, will be of the same mind still.
