Quote from: DavidL on June 05, 2017, 08:21:38 amThat's an interesting piece, although it doesn't make clear that jihadism existed before the interventions mentioned. Agree that the actions of various western governments have exacerbated the situation but these people require no excuse for their barbarity. However, red or blue, makes no difference.
Quote from: DavidL on June 06, 2017, 08:20:30 amGood to see Maajid Nawaz talking complete sense on breakfast TV this morning. His honesty in admitting that hate preachers are widespread and in calling the home-grown jihadism issue an 'insurgency' is part of finding a solution. In my view, defence of liberal values and cultural sensitivity should not trump the prevention of innocent citizens being blown to bits. We've become a laughing stock among the extremists - one of the 'London three' was the star of his own TV show ffs!
Quote from: Matt2112 on June 06, 2017, 12:30:39 pmMaajid Nawaz - and the Quilliam Foundation of which he's a founder - has been one of the few sane, sensible and honest voices about this whole issue for a long time.It's always gratifying when regressive left apologists of any religion and indeed none can't and/or won't acknowledge the elephant in the room, only for their arguments to be annihilated by someone - a former Islamist extremist indeed - who is far more theologically, politically and philosophically literate than they will ever be.
Quote from: DavidL on June 06, 2017, 20:10:02 pmSo the last of the 'London three' to be named was prevented from travelling to Syria to fight and 'red-flagged' by the Italian authorities and yet he was let into the UK, probably with a cordial smile and a welcoming comment by our, ahem.....'Border Force' - farcical.
