If these “deradicalization” programs won’t deal with the motive, the inspiration for this holy war – namely Islam, how could they possibly be successful? I mean, really. The only way to de-radicalize a Muslim is to convert him to something else. “Deradicalization” programs won’t deal with the motive, the inspiration for this holy war – Islam. What hope could they ever have of they possibly being successful? We see Muslims in “deradicalization” programs arrested for jihad plots while in the program. Of all the absurd and deluded responses by the elites to the jihad threat, “deradicalization” ranks the most irrational. How can a program claiming to address ideological motive work without addressing the ideology? These delusional 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. And these imams are playing us for the fools we are begging to be.
“ISIS terrorist hit with prison, deradicalization program,” by Sam Pazzano, Toronto Sun, March 1, 2019:
A former engineering student who wanted to join ISIS could be paroled in as few as three months to start a “deradicalization” plan, a judge ruled Thursday.
Justice John McMahon sentenced Pamir Hakimzadah to four years and one month in prison –plus three years probation — for his terrorism crime. Once credit for time served is subtracted, Hakimzadah has six months remaining and could be paroled in three months.
Under a deradicalization plan, Hakimzadah will begin spiritual and psychiatric counselling during his probation.
McMahon noted Hakimzadah “never encouraged others to join ISIS” and accepted responsibility for his crimes, agreeing to participate in the deradicalization process.
“I hope this is a pattern for the future,” said defence lawyer Luka Rados.
“There is a need for deradicalization. We need to find a way for these people to be converted to law-abiding, normal Muslims.”
Hakimzadah, who worked as a math and science tutor for kids in Grades 8-10, never espoused his radical, terrorist views to his pupils, who branded him a good role model.
Documents obtained by Global News from his bail hearing indicated that in wishing to join ISIS, Hakimzadah, 29, said he wanted “four wives and several female slaves” and “he would be fulfilling the wishes of God to kill non-Muslims.“
On Oct. 22, 2014, Hakimzadah left Toronto on a flight to Amsterdam and then flew to Istanbul, reports Stewart Bell of Global News.
He was busted after a cabbie suspected he was attempting to join ISIS in Syria and turned him over to police, court heard….
