These counter terror and “deradicalization” programs are nothing more than charters for surrender.
It appears these programs are actually sustaining and serving the Muslim supremacist movement. One of the London slaughterers is a product of the taypayer-funded ruse.
We suffer the same bloody inanities in the US. We see Muslims in “deradicalization” programs arrested for jihad plots while in the program.
Of all the absurd and ludicrous responses by leftist elites to the jihad threat, “deradicalization” ranks as the most insane. How can a program claim to address the ideological motive behind acts of war without addressing the ideology? These absurd programs are based on the idea that Islam is a Religion of Peace, and that jihad terrorists are misunderstanding it. But this is false, so the programs are a failure.

How the body set up to stop Muslims turning to extremism is wasting millions on gimmicks like rap workshops while ignoring real problems for fear of being ‘racist’
- The Young Muslim Advisory Group was set up in the wake of the July 7 bombings
- It was part of the £40million-a-year Prevent counter terrorism strategy
- But there’s a belief that Prevent has become a ‘cash cow’ for Muslim groups
- Even attacker Khuram Butt’s brother was working with the Government
- The Home Office now plans to beef up the Prevent programme
By Paul Bracchi for the Daily Mail, 10 June 2017:
Every few months, back in the days of the last Labour government, a group of hand-picked young Muslims would meet members of the Cabinet in Whitehall.
Usually it was Hazel Blears, then the Communities Secretary, or Ed Balls, the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families. Sometimes both were present, along with civil servants.
The people sitting around the table with them were from the Young Muslim Advisory Group, with whom they would have earnest, hand-wringing discussions on how best to tackle extremism following the July 7 attacks on London.

The initiative, launched in a blaze of publicity, was part of the taxpayer-funded £40-million-a-year Prevent counter-terrorism strategy, designed to fight radicalism’s root causes within communities; members of the group would later also receive money from the Association of Chief Police Officers.
One of the ‘personal advisers’ who regularly reported back to Blears and Balls in Whitehall was a young man called Saad Butt, now 29. ‘He was focused and very engaged in the whole concept of Prevent,’ said someone who worked alongside him.
Saad Butt was involved with the organisation up until around 2014. He even registered the Young Muslim Advisory Group to the Butt family home in East London. But how successful was it?
Perhaps that question is best answered with a simple statement of fact: Saad Butt’s 27-year-old younger brother is the infamous Khuram Butt — one of the London Bridge butchers.

Saad Butt is not implicated in any way in the massacre. But the revelation that, until as recently as three years ago, the Butt brothers — one working for the Government to prevent terrorism, the other pursuing a path to bloody jihad on the streets of the capital — were living under the same roof with their mother is almost beyond parody.
Today, even with the political uncertainty of the Election, there can be few more pressing issues facing any future government than security; the safety of its own citizens.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd had promised to strengthen the Prevent programme in the wake of an internal review which concluded that the anti-radicalisation blueprint — funding community projects and training to combat extremism — should be beefed up.
