RELAX: MUSLIM TRUCKER WHO POSTED JIHAD MATERIAL TO BE “DERADICALIZED”
In other words, nothing is going to be done to stop him.
The Italian news site ANSA reported Wednesday that a convert to Islam who calls himself Muhammad Santamato “posted material praising jihad,” and is now, authorities said, to be “deradicalized.” Italian authorities could just as well have said that they weren’t going to do anything to stop Santamato from carrying out a jihad attack, since one of the most obvious but little-noted aspects of the West’s catastrophic response to jihad terror is the abject failure of “deradicalization” programs.
ANSA noted that “Alfredo alias Muhammad Santamato, 42, was flagged as a potential threat, perhaps using his truck to target civilians as in recent attacks in Nice, Berlin, London and Stockholm, police said.” But relax: “his license has been confiscated and he now has to report to police while doing a special course aimed at erasing his Islamist beliefs, sources said.”
De-radicalization programs have been implemented elsewhere, notably in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia’s deradicalization program is worse than a failure: terror analyst Paul Sperry wrote in the New York Post last November that “counterterrorism experts have long suspected Saudi Arabia’s ‘rehabilitation’ center for terrorists does a poor job of de-radicalizing jihadists. But a Saudi detainee at Guantanamo Bay now reveals it’s actually a recruiting and training factory for jihad.”
