Former Islamist: Ideology and Theology, Not Grievances or Poverty, Produce Radicaliza

Former Islamist: Ideology and Theology, Not Grievances or Poverty, Produce Radicalization

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/...ces-or-poverty

"(CNSNews.com) – Muslims are radicalized not because of Islamophobia, poverty or foreign policy grievances, but because of an ideology and theology that must be uprooted if the growing problem is to be addressed, a former radical Islamist said at the European Parliament on Tuesday.

Addressing a conference on European Muslim radicalization, Ed Husain, a senior advisor to the Tony Blair Faith Foundation and former Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow, urged participants to “be honest about the nature of the problem.”..."

An interesting read.

And the US's thoughts?

Kerry on Terrorism’s Appeal: ‘Regular Meals, Companionship’ – Not Necessarily Religion

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/...ot-necessarily

"(CNSNews.com) – Religion does not necessarily play a role in radicalization of Muslims, Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday night, citing political repression and denial of rights as relevant factors, along with the lure of “regular meals [and] companionship.”...."

So if we just give them a job, hug and food the world will be peaceful?

Jobs, meals and companionship for terrorists is just too nuanced a solution for this crowd to understand. ~ Marie Harf

Like a Big Mac, a goat and a job will turn a true believer from human bomb to a happy, productive human.

They've been singing that silly song for a while.

Who are you going to trust on this issue? A greasy, Islamophobic former Muslim or our ersatz Secretary of State?

At least until the muslims can secure the proper explosives, weapons, documents and transportation.

He is so out-of-touch with reality that it's comical. Like many, he has no clue what he is talking about and only serves as a puppet.

Hmmmm regular meals, perhaps that is the reason behind our governments wanting to cut back at the mess halls. Good policy it will deter terrorism.
