A Muslim believed to have been de-radicalized was just caught spreading jihad propaganda among the youth he worked with in his government job.
Bilal L., as he’s named by the Telegraaf, was convicted and served time on charges of plotting terror attacks.
The government then put him to work in its radicalization and polarization program, helping to spot at-risk youth.
According to the Telegraaf, Bilal L. was convicted for preparing for a terrorist attack as a member of the Hofstad group. After serving his sentence, Amsterdam hired him as a youth worker who knew everything about radicalization and could spot and keep young people off the jihad-road. He worked in the radicalization and polarization department for years – the department under now suspended Amsterdam official Saadia A.-T.
Instead of preventing radicalization, however, he spoke well of it, according to the newspaper. The Telegraaf also reports that experts repeatedly warned the municipality that Bilal L. was still radicalized.
And yet the left still insists: De-radicalization works.
