"Satiren är ett effektivt vapen mot islamismen"

Ur vårt husorgan Andover Advertiser
hämtar vi en intressant analys:
Satirical films like Chris Morris's Four
Lions should be used as a weapon
to undermine homegrown terrorism,
according to a study.
Groups like al Qaida must be "de-
glamorised" and shown to be
"incompetent, narcissistic and irreligious",
a report from think tank Demos said.
the film from the creator of Brass Eye,
which depicts a hapless gang of would-
be suicide bombers, should be used to
show jihad is not "cool", the report said.
The study, including interviews with 58
violent radicals, found young Muslims
are drawn into terrorism for the same
reason gang members and football
hooligans are attracted to violence.
The authors said a typical recruit is
likely to have little in the way of
religious upbringing and a poor
understanding of Islam.
They said the "Islam is Peace" message
was not working and should be dropped.
The Edge of Violence report is based
on a two-year international study which
involved interviews with radicals, young
Muslims and experts.
It found that, unlike peaceful radicals,
terrorist recruits were less likely to
take part in political marches, less
likely to go to university, and more
likely to be unemployed.
The report found both violent and
non-violent radicals experienced social
exclusion but violent youths were more
likely to see Islam as a religion which
followed "just war" principles.
The report involved research in the UK,
Canada, Denmark, France and Holland.

islamister i Storbritannien, som vill
