Who are we kidding here?
Any supposed “expert” or “scholar” who attempts to lecture any of us on the jihad being waged around the globe using terms of ”violent extremism” and ”radicalization” and no mention of valid islamic texts that fuel it, need to be shown the door.
Then the same pro-UN article contains this pearl:
- The UN can promote better assimilation of minorities; alienation is considered by many counterterrorism experts as an accelerant to radicalization.
Europe has thrown itself into the cauldron of multiculturalism and with devastating effects. That said, the Swedes, who are the poster child of failed multiculturalism have gained a seat at the UN security council, systematically refuse to change course, assimilation of minorities (muslims) is not on the horizon.
‘Extremism can’t be defeated on the battlefield alone’

Between the US-led coalition’s rapid closing in Mosul and Raqqa and the recent return of families to their homes in a liberated Fallujah, the past few months have been a turning point in the global war against Isis.
It took unprecedented focus and commitment for these breakthroughs to materialize. But although international forces have gained major ground, we are still losing the greater war against extremism.
Attacks in Nice, Istanbul, and, most recently, New York sadly reaffirm that extremists are winning the war of ideas. In all three accounts, marginalized individuals acted alone on Isis’s commands to brutally kill the so-called infidels. Again, even in our successes, we fail to address the root causes of the radicalism that allowed Isis to first raise its flag over Fallujah in 2014.
An unprecedented level of commitment
There is a lesson here. Extremism cannot be defeated on the battlefield alone. We must defeat the ideologies that fuel it. Indeed, for civilization to hold its ground – to truly win against Isis and extremism everywhere – what is needed is an unprecedented level of commitment to eradicating the sources of – and inspiration for – extremism and mitigating the process of radicalization.
