Just when you thought It couldn’t get any weirder, Denmark has now embarked on a “Hug a Terrorist” program.The hope is that a simple act of kindness or affection to a wayward disenfranchised youth (not an Islamist) may turn him away from committing an act of violence. Perhaps a bouquet of flowers may work, too. But before going forward with open arms to “hug the terrorist” you may want to check for knives or a suicide vest.
While the most positive news in the war on Islamic terrorism has come from military successes against ISIS in Mosul and Syria, the overlooked recent failures by authorities to effectively deal with home grown Islamists is a cause for growing concern.
Whether it is by downplaying the threat or attempting to come up with snappy-sounding strategies to deal with the growing list of suspected terrorists “known to the authorities,” the West is struggling to reverse the tide of radicalization, particularly in the prison system. The latest example is the UK’s plan to deal with imprisoned Islamic terrorists by creating “separation centers” that would “…have an individualized care and management plan which sets out realistic, achievable targets, while also taking into account the complex, ideological/political nature of some of the risks that need to be targeted.”
What a bunch of gobbledygook.
