In an earlier debate, we looked at the issue of Europeans fighting in Iraq and Syria. More than 6,000 EU citizens are believed to be fighting on behalf of Islamist groups in the region, and senior counter-terrorism experts have long been warning of the threat they could pose if they return.

Some of our readers supported stripping them of their passports so they would be unable to return, whereas others argued that due process should be followed and returning fighters should be prosecuted as European citizens.

We had a comment sent in from Maia, arguing that the problem should be tackled much earlier, with policies aimed at preventing the initial radicalisation of young European Muslims:

citizen_icon_180x180Why deal with terrorists only at this late stage, after they have been radicalised in Europe, then gone and fought in Syria and only when they are coming back? I think we should fight this evil at a much earlier stage – at the beginning, when people are starting to be brainwashed in mosques, for example.

Maia advocates closer surveillance by security agencies of what is being said on social media and in radical mosques, so that radicalisation can be detected and prevented at a much earlier stage.

The attacks in Paris earlier this year have led EU Member States to re-evaluate their security policies. These include enhanced data-sharing measures between Member States, as well as ways to better tackle radicalisation and prevent the supply of illegal firearms.

We put Maia’s comment to Steve Killelea, founder of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). The IEP recently published their updated Global Terrorism Index, which found that the number of deaths from terrorism around the world has increased by more than 60% between 2012 and 2013.

Nevertheless, Killelea argued that it was important to take a measured approach, and policies which were seen to be unfairly targeting groups within society could be counter-productive:

We also spoke to Afzal Khan, a British Labour MEP and Vice-Chair of the Subcommittee on Security and Defence in the European Parliament. He said that he would like to see a two-pronged approach, giving people good employment and social opportunities at home, whilst also working to counter the idealistic notion that Europeans travelling to Iraq and Syria were somehow helping the situation.

How can we prevent the radicalisation of young European Muslims? Let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below, and we’ll take them to policy-makers and experts for their reactions!

    Stop killing Muslims in Iraq! Afghanistan! Palestin! Syria etc. This will stop radicalism! Unless we don’t want to know the truth!

      Radical Muslims kill more Muslims than any western forces manage to do, whether its ISIS in Syria or murderous scum on the streets of Paris.

      Your statement is typical fundamentalist crap that starts many on the road to Radicalism, trying to make out it’s the West v Islam. It is not, it is about people with a perverted vision of Islam and a lot of weak willed idiots who get brainwashed into believing them

    • avatar

      Agree with Paul’s comment and would like to add: I am not aware that the EU is killing people in Syria, Palestine, Iraq; not even sure about Afghanistan. Unless you are speaking in the defence of the Taliban? As far as I am aware, as I have a few Pakistani friends, they want the Taliban eradicated, as they are killing the local villagers (who are also Muslim btw).

    Immediately send those who are radicalising them to Islamic countries. They cannot be refused as Muslims in an Islamic state and if they wish to re apply to return they can do it from their homeland. If it is found a mosque is doing this, then close down the mosque on their deportation. Although this should be unnecessary as the majority should be much happier and more settled in an environment that pleases them. Their families can join them at our expense as they will remain unsettled if their close family remains in Europe and are not with them in their chosen Islamic country.

    • avatar

      The problem with this thought is that it takes as granted that those radicalising are always foreigners with a non EU passport, which is not the case. It also invites to believe that immigrants are the ones who are up to no good.

    By deporting people who are radicalizing them and by strictly regulating the function of muslim education centers and mosques.

    • avatar

      I agree. One step further, ALL muslim operations need to be regulated or removed & eradicated. It is not a conducive religion with all others even at its best. Whether by evil methods ( obvious) or evil methods (deceptive) the muslim goal is to be the only religion on our planet. We encourage this by allowing its practice within our western countries. Any muslim who believes they are peaceful & will always be peaceful are either genuinely deluded or practicing deliberate deceit.

      good idea, then don’t travel to our country for income. stay in your own country recourse we will stop and close all other religions and the churches related in UAE.

      if Islam and Islamic countries are reason behind terrorism, why USA and Israel are supporting jihadies in Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan ?

      why most of your public community are looking for income in our countries?
      why you people are spending vacations in Dubai for leisure

      isn’t it an Islamic country ?

      It’s silly to say that radicalism is caused by EU not being good enough. No one is held in here by force, if someone is disappointed with EU’s hypocrisy or anything else she/he is free to go and find hers/his place somewhere else. It’s as easy as it gets.

      There is no such thing as islamophobia , that word is made up by Muslims when they are defending their other members who are abusing other people – check it out. In Qur’an they have instructions that they must put fear in unbelievers heart and this is exactly what are they doing terrorizing everyone, and if they are criticized then they speak of Islamofobia… I am just waiting when Islamofobia is word for not accepting Mohamed as your prophet.

      I think this is good solution, and very reasonable one… but it will not happen because this is preparation for 3 world war by secret government and EU governments are not doing anything about this question because they want it to reach to the unbearable point when citizens will beg governments to start a war against them. The solution for this problem is very simple, it has nothing to do with racism as some will say, just deportation of immigrants that are criminals, if this is done problem is very easily solved… but they don’t want solution.

    Islamic countries stil live in the Middle ages because of their religion which restrain their progress and civilization. In these countries Islam reigns over the State. All progressive thinking is repressed and destructed. People from these countries come to Europe and expect people here to have their thinking and believes. The problem is that muslims think of other religions as cancer that must be destroyed and infidels must be killed without regret… Such people does not have any place here!

    Most of the so-called radicals are young, children of people who came to Europe for a chance at a better life
    The older generation, many, worked at whatever job they could find, and were able to raise a family, have a life. The younger generation, they have had it relatively easy, too easy. They have had a chance to study, study hard, and better themselves, or learn a trade, but that’s hard work, and it’s so much easier hanging out with what is nothing more than a gang, getting by day aftet day, on what mom and dad provide, and waiting for a miracle from Above; in other words, they’re just slackers in a gang. And what should we do: give ’em a job and tell them to get a life. And put them to shame before their own parents and wider community. Everybody else is coping, dude. So cope.

    Europeans need to accept that their secular belief system, supposedly derived from Enlightenment values, is not only internally inconsistent but is actually based on a deliberate lie. Europeans did not found colonies in order to enlighten natives, they did so to rape, pillage and seize territory and resources through violent conquest. This process continues today. Europeans need to understand that their best possible hope is for a gradual decline until their standards of living are comparable with the other 4.5 billion inhabitants of this planet. Only then, when Europeans are self-reliant on their own resources rather than seeking to plunder them from elsewhere, will the “Muslim problem” be resolved. Actually, it’s not a Muslim problem at all but a basic justice problem. Stop living according to a bogus “value system”, stop raping and pillaging in foreign countries and relying on cheap immigrant labour to support your “God given” right to a higher standard of living. Hey presto! No more immigration! No more foreign wars! No more “Muslim problem”!

    • avatar

      Thomas, did you read the question of the debate? “How to prevent the radicalisation of young EUROPEAN Muslims?” The debate is about young people born and bred in Europe becoming radical Muslims. It is not about people coming from elsewhere in order to bomb Europe. The people that come here as immigrants exactly come because they have a positive picture of Europe, not because they hate it. And the truth is that a lot of Muslim countries receive aid from the EU. It sounds more like you have come here in order to express your own hatred and any excuse will do.

    • avatar
      Paul X

      Thomas is clearly having a laugh if he thinks if Europeans lower their living standards to that of second or third world countries then all the problems in the world will go away..and what exactly are the US & China going to be doing whilst Europe reverts to the dark ages?

      ..and for your information Thomas there is currently more “rape, pillage and territory seizing” being carried out in the name of Islam by ISIS and Boko Haram then anywhere else on the planet..that is the “Muslim problem”

    The problem with Muslim extremists is their primitive, violent response to anything they consider wrong or unacceptable. This is because their religion calls for murder, “holy war” and revenge any time that a Muslim feels hurt in some way and it is all deemed approved by God because so it is written in the Quran – a very convenient excuse! This is the root of the problem. As long as their belief system accepts killing as just, honourable and desired purpose in life, there will be more radicalised Muslims. This is why there need to be European laws that incriminate specifically Christianophobia and inciting to violence against non-Muslims through calls for jihad or martyrdom. The idea that killing is great, God wants it and he will send you to heaven when you murder “non-believers”, needs to be CRUSHED decisively through concrete legislative measures and penalties, not just general ones. Muslims need to understand that blood revenge is the wrong way to react in Europe when you are hurt by someone’s actions. Also Sharia law needs to be banned as a means to distribute justice in any community in Europe. If anyone wants to follow Sharia, they can move to Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, for example, and never come back. There is no excuse for inaction – we cannot tolerate violence and murder based on religious beliefs! There has to be a strong message to any Muslim who considers coming to Europe and those who are already here – Sharia law, jihad and fatwas are a criminal offence in EU; any incitement to hatred and violence towards non-Muslims is a serious crime that will result in immediate deportation of non-EU citizens without the right to return, cancelling the European passports of those with dual citizenship and deporting them for life, or at least 20 years imprisonment of those criminals who have only EU citizenship. We are not talking about intolerance to Muslims here. We are talking about intolerance to hate crime based on religion. These are two different things and no one should feel guilty for any strict laws introduced against religion-inspired violence!

    Europe must follow it’s path of tolerance and freedom os cjoice and speech and those who live in it must follow/defend these vision because they’re our european background as a culture independent of being atheist, christian, islamic, jewish or what ever!

    Those who are incapable of accepting this are not apt to live in Europe and as so should be expelled from it.

    Probably this would be considered as an fundamentalist reaction but if those who do not accept/comprehend our ways are incapable of accepting that others may which to live in a different way, why then must We change in order to, better, accomodate them?!

    Emphasize on education and teaching kids HOW to think, not WHAT. Teach about religion in schools just like history and literature are taught. Teach young people that there are, and were, a lot of different religions in the world and that the religion of their parents isn’t the only one. Teach them about the different religious mythologies and belief systems around the world. Teach them about the consequences of zealotry – the Crusades, Jihad, The Inquisition, the witch hunts. Teach them that knowing is different from believeing Teach them to seek out knowledge and evidence, explore, learn and understand. And then to think on that knowledge and evidence and make conclusions based on that. That is the only way to permanently reduce fanaticism and zealotry among young people and ensure a more tolerant and rational society in the future.

    This planet is the only home we all know. Boundaries were created by mankind, if we believe in God, he, she or it, is guilty for the creation of different races; people are guilty for the creation of all religions to divide this world. Sharia law and scary clothes worn by Muslims must be banned, it’s offensive for women’s dignity, also for men who can’t wear skinny jeans according to rules issued by ISIS. Islam is not a religion of peace, Muhammad wrote that they, Muslims, must kill those who give up Islam. Massive deportation is a partial solution for this plight, nuke Mecca is full solution; history has shown those countries behave better as colonies.

  27. avatar

    People tend to radicalise when they feel they are outsiders. And it’s not only about social policies, it’s about everything. Clever integration policies should help, and closer surveillance of potentially or already known as radical spaces, too. If you ban a headscarf thinking you are granting freedom to Muslim women, you don’t make a devoted Muslim woman who wears a scarf by her own conscious choice, nor her family happy. This is just an example. Europe, even though very secular and free, is still very much regarded as a Christian club. So this is worth a thought.

    Well, it is a well-known problem…young men in their 20’s looking for a purpose in their lives and making suicide thoughts… and here is where the hate preachers come in: why not kill yourself and benefit my own cause as well? The problem of alienation of 2nd and 3rd generation immigrants is not only amongst Muslims. Having spoken to mixed-race people, I have heard them say that they feel ghettoised and discriminated against because of where they are from or even where one of their parents is from, which is obvious by their appearance. The stories I have heard were heart-breaking and I think the problem is far deeper than what meets the eye. It is very easy to say that integration and education are needed but if this has not been achieved so long the question is, is it something achievable and if there was no plan to integrate those people, should they have been allowed in?

    • avatar
      catherine benning


      It is not because of where anyone is from or for any physical attribute they may have, it is because of the overriding alien lifestyle a person is forced to share if you live with a culture and in a society that is so different from your own. And this stands for both ends of the spectrum.

      A person who comes from a culture where, say, the mutilation of children or those born with a pigment difference is seen as quite acceptable to annihilate and eat, cannot feel too comfortable in a European society where that kind of behaviour is abhorred. Likewise, in Europe living beside or in a community involved in this witchcraft practice can bring on the urge to flee at a pace unknown before the arrival of such a people. Especially when your own culture is too fearful to investigate such communities as it may be seen as racist to do so. The only sure way to safeguard yourself and family is to get away from it as quickly as your legs can carry you.

      This is part one. There is three parts to this documentary from Dispatches.


      So it isn’t simply the followers of Islam that is leading to the fear of the British people. It is the fact that our government is willing to allow it to take place rather than being seen as racist.

    The only way to do this thing is promoting a common european policy on integration. All muslims (but all non-Europeans) must feel the belonging to a unique Country, a unique civilization. I think we must ask them an opening of their communities to the political and social life of the city. The local administrators must ask them and demand the participation of the community’s members to social and political life of the city but also of the Nation and also of Europe.

    It takes a comprehensive project. There was an important and thorough observation of the relation between radicalism and economic strife:
    Austerity and Anarchy: Budget Cuts and Social Unrest in Europe, 1919-2009
    I think the major problem is the economic structure in Europe is unsustainable, or rather, benefits very few. Not neccessarily the rich ones as proposed by radical left, but the chosen few. It protects the International corporate interests against SMEs, protects organized labour with the unemployed. Some radical change should be made.

    And of course there is the right wing notion of culture shock. Muslims or not if they don’t respect the core value of the EU there should establish a formal proccess of from reprimand to deprivation of their citizenship, which should be addressed due process and legaly with no secrecy. This also provides us lenient access to effective weapons against radicalism since they are non-citizens.

    Third, invest Africa for sustainable growth. Fighting radicalism with fights will eventually starve entire Europe, not only France. And we get shitty country like Russia in the end.

      Adding more people to an EU population means that the wealth must be distributed among more people, causing GNP per capita to decrease. Isn’t that the dilemma with the much criticized EU (im-migration-enlargement) model, the resultant tougher economic times and a hostile political directed EU social/family/child support policy? We are living in a “period of technology, automation & robotics” with less demand on (menial-unskilled) labor!

  45. avatar

    Nothing can be done, how about that? Nothing that wouldn’t involve compromising basic values, that is. Heck, even some of the christian churches around are trying to question equality for women/gays ea all the time.

    Religion (or regressivism as I sometimes call it) is the problem here, there’s too many people that continously seem to want to turn back the clock, because some fantasy book supposedly says what a paradise it would be if we did so. Almost anywhere in the world when some group is being denied rights, 99% of the time it seems religion is involved in some way or another, and usually on the ‘deny them rights’ side.

    It is high time that we made it very clear that we do not accept rules and laws dreamt up by 1st or 7th century desert-dwellers. ‘Freedom of religion’ as a concept has to go and be replaced with ‘freedom from religion’. A rigid separation of religion and state and to make it clear to new immigrants on entry that this concept cannot be questioned. And if they don’t like it they can always go to Iran or Saudi Arabia.

    With rights come responsibilities, and those that don’t want the responsibilities, shouldn’t be given rights. So all the hate preachers should be stripped of citizenship and deported immediately, instead of being protected by ‘human rights conventions’ or whatever. Those radical priests often were expelled from their home countries for being too radical, but here they get away with calling themselves refugees? No that should not be accepted.

These groups are fighting against each other , but instead should turn thier attention to the instigators in washington, thats where the problem lies . The usa corporate govement doesnt care about its own people so it certainly doesnt care what happens in the middle east, for them its just bussness. Anybody ever wonder why isis has new equipment and the latest weapons from israel???
    The usa seeds hate and mistrust for financial gain, so we need to start looking at the root of the problem and thats in washington.
    Like i said the corporate goverment of the usa have been playing these games for years.
    Now they have russia and iran in thier crosshairs , and there will be another false flag in ukraine sooner or later , and yes the russians will get the blame time after time .
    The world needs to look at the architechs of deception.
    The american warmongers would love to see war in europe, they are doing thier best to create one for financial and corporate gain.
    The problem of radicalisation everywhere could be prevented if the world would just wake up and look at the root of the problem and that lies in washington.
    The american corporate dollar is based on oil and weapons, not people ,do the math…..!
    Dont let the american banksters fool you, they are a nasty bunch..and masters of deception….!

    You can’t because you have to respect religion. Religious groups organize all kind of madness and you can’t tell anything because you are against God and not tolerant . If you want to do some kind of crime than is excellent to use religious groups , they offer you perfect protection. I have very good experience with it .

    Human kind is facing a very difficult problem from now to the next years ’cause I think there’s no solution for it. According to numbers, deaths by terrorism all around the world increased 60%. So, in my point of view, you face fanatic muslims and start a global war or you do what they want and the concept of “democracy” and free expression as we know it in the urban occidental modern world vanishes. Neither are good. Any other solution?

Unfortunately they are not, the only ones who, send freedom, justice, equality, prosperity, peace and human rights, to hell. Others, before them, have done an excellent job in destroying those values globally. Any radicalisation is simply the result of “certain” policies followed up to now.

    It’s highly honorable that we’re fighting against ISIS to support the civilians living in their reach. But it could be misunderstood as a fight against the sovereignty of those involved countries. This could mobilize living syrians or iraqis in europe to join ISIS or other terror groups. I think not that bombs and weapons could solve the problem itself. It maybe will slow down the advance of ISIS, but only Muslims themselves could solve the problem, I’m afraid.

    send them back to their countries and colonize them again till they learn how to be civilized, ruling them with an iron hand but at the same time with total rights, I mean, no democracy, no freedom of speech, of press, no political rights, no democracy for them. But giving them an excellent life standard, education, and culture, forbidding the practice of Islamic religion, burn to the ground their cult centers, send civilized settlers there, encourage the mix between western/civilized men and native women from that countries. Apply to mistreaters of women the same punishments that they apply to women. Take all their petrol to Europe. Encourage atheism or civilized religions.

Those who preach and want radicalisation should be sent back to their home countries.

    First place certainty in European concept and own values manifested through actions of welfare, making more equal societies less hietarhical if any hierarchy at all. Then more certain predictive daily life. Certainty and changes that are inclined to personal growth and being part of community also in hosting communities. Chaos in hosting communities and alienated society system raise anxiety and uncertainty in all people. Answer to that on individual level is getting away from own inner challenge but stick to the outside infused order even when this includes violence. Guess same maneveur space are using all extremist group. Chaos in society is fertile soil. When intensifying repression instead values and consiousness we are creatures to preserve development of nature cycles not artificial alienated processes. Urban areas to be regreen and common infrastructure where people are meeting through daily activities like logistics and suburbian living.
    On individual level or group level respect, raising values of Green Europe, respecting other clothes , belief systems, prophets and speaking language, culture. So as hosting community to minority and vice versa.

    Get down to earth and more realistic for all hierahical.elite classes and community get the chance to develope on consiousness.

    Ignoring less consioussed sctions of repression that serve as provocations for conflicts no matter how are dressed under the freedom of speech or vmedia manipulating. Give people opportunity to think with their clear mind and balance. This requires health food standards, clean drinking water, health urban suburbians and open access to education, integration of knowledges from various areas including religious system and respect spiritual aspect of the living person.

    Fear is born of doubt. Fear escalates our cauldron of actions to over accumulate and that moment when enough is enough, the cauldron will crack and shatter beneath the pressure of all actions contributed. Extremities become the demise. Thus we need to channel all actions respectively to those areas they belong to, not there where they do not.

    Individualistic Trinity of Negativity is ignorance, negligence and desperation. In order for us to understand out actions we need to maintain the balance between tolerance, integrity and confidence. Education is a key and knowledge is the lock. To channel our behaviour into correct cauldrons, we need to use the keys and open the locks of body and mind so that we won’t have to lean on those measures which have us suffer unnecessary fates.

    The majority wants the minorities to get well integrated, but they don’t do so much for it. When emigrants move into their neighbourhood, the locals move away.With work integration is also a big problem, they don’t try to be friends with them etc. So what do you expect when the majority acts like this?? The result of it, the minorities get more grouped, isolated, acting and thinking differently. On the other hand minorities coming from very different backgrounds are more hard to integrate due to a different mentality and life style.

    If there are only 4000 people from an EU of 500 million people, I’d say that’s really not that much. Regardless how much we popularize and support values such as tolerance, liberty, diversity and the likes, there will always be forms of radicalism. There was never a period in history, even European history, completely free of it. I would say it’s unstoppable, and I would also wager that more crackdown on radical thinking groups will eventually lead to more homegrown terrorists, not less. But again, if only 4000 people are fighting for ISIS out of an EU with some over 500 million citizens, that’s not even 0.001% of the population being convinced enough. The number is acceptable, and it is proof that the current European culture of freedom and tolerance actually does work to some extent.

    Radicalisation has many seeds. I think the most important are these next :
    – poorety, which lead to despair
    – religious. Islam is multiple and the easiest to understand is radical islam. Moreover, everybody highlights more the difference between Islam and Occidental philosophy than our similarity.

    the second seed could be resolved with giving a strong structure to islam in europe, which highlights the likeness and gives an interpretation in adequation with us and ex-worshippers. Parralelly, the radical ways must be considered as sect.

    – Western countries have created “immigration projects” with no continuity or any educational support for people coming in from a very different society;
    – Western countries with high unemployment rates continue bringing in Muslim immigrants;
    – Muslim clerics are allowed to preach politics with high radicalization results;

    So, which one shall the Western countries tackle first?

    The question is : wich policy do we have to implement to prevent radicalisation? I’ll tell you :
    – Improve the situation of immigrants.
    -Fight against job discrimination.
    -A global plan to restore growth, employement and quality of life in some suburbs.
    -Have the courage to take the decision of bringing justice to all the people of the Middle-East – yes it is also true for Egyptians and Palestinians

    Radicalisation of any group in a population is usually the consequence of uninformed, misunderstood, and most importantly unrecognized groups of people. This polarised society will produce more conflict and eventually marginalises individuals. Solving it is a complex matter, deportation, frontiers and anti-EU propaganda won’t solve this. It will only make matters worse.

    Sir Isaac Newton once said: “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. The more we try to prevent actively, the higher opposition there will be. I don’t think European culture actually needs active preventive methods against radicalism of this sort. The living standards of Europeans, the security in our countries, our way of life, all these should be proof enough that our civilization works. There will always be the odd bloke turning to ISIS or the next Islamic terrorist group, and I don’t even think we should strive to stop that. We should, obviously, keep doing what we’re doing in trying to foil their plans, but that’s about it. Anything more will just make it worse.

    From my experience as a Portuguese child who lived in France: there is a deep conflict between family values and school and society values. Values from school weren’t accepted at home and family values weren’t accepted at school so my ideas were rejected by all. It is so hard to live your childhood in such a world. That was 35 years ago and I still feel it in all my bones. But it makes me understand the psychological processes of all those lost children. They are inhabited by fear and hate.

    the way to stop is to first to understand them. Most of the radical muslims are individuals who don’t have education, health, food, water, clean air and a roof. Some of them are also bored so they see joining a teroristic group as fun, others got in it because of the social pressure. Whatever reason it is (maybe the best answer would be that they are like that because of the factors in their surroundings) the best we can do is does save people from their own surrounding and doesnt include isolation, better integreation into the society.

    • avatar

      Valentina, I don’t think you yourself understand them very well though. The people that blew themselves up in London, all had jobs, families and the guy that beheaded someone in Syria on camera had grown up in London and his family was still receiving benefits from the British state, even though they had moved back to Kuwait. The ones I read about also had other minor convictions before that, so it really looked like they were career criminals whose crimes had just escalated in severity. I realise, this is not going to be a popular post, but personally, I cannot be bothered to understand anything about them. This is an imported problem, as far as I am concerned and has very little to do with out culture and society. The best way is to keep them out.

    Those adults making wars today learned intolerance-hatred-violence with their parents-people-culture who didn’t care about what they were teaching to their children.

    Training of a child to become terrorist

    islamic schools in Britain teaching hate and segregation to young muslims.

    “The most dangerous terrorist groups in the world have the intent and capability to carry out attacks against the European Union and the West in general. ”

    EUROPOL – TE-SAT 2015
    “Terrorist acts caused the death of four people in the European Union (EU) in 2014, while European citizens continue to be kidnapped and killed in conflict zones abroad. These facts demonstrate the ongoing threat to the security of EU citizens and interests, which has been particularly exacerbated by the conflict in Syria and Iraq”

    TE-SAT 2014
    “The majority of EU Member States continue to consider religiously inspired terrorism as a major threat, as evidenced by the significant increase in the number of arrests. Two attacks and several disrupted plots in 2013 illustrate this threat. AlQaeda and like-minded terrorist groups abroad continued to encourage self-organised attacks within the EU aiming for indiscriminate casualties.
    With regard to LEFT-WING and anarchist terrorism, the number of attacks and arrests increased compared to previous years. RIGHT-WING extremists may exhibit violent and intimidating behaviour, BUT DO NOT GENERALLY EMPLOY TERRORIST MODI OPERANDI. An exception to this rule in 2013 was a series of four attacks in the UK carried out by one individual. “

    The EU has succeeded in destroying itself by creating and importing a disgruntled islam extremist population among its youth of Arab and North African descent. There is no fixing of this as long as the EU goes hand in hand with Saudis, supports rebels (that switch sides quicker than you can say NO) that in the end turn out to be jihadist, and as long as the EU does not acknowledge that Islam is the problem. Islam has no place in our society until it declares itself non-political, peaceful and loving to all humans. The bigotry and violence promoted by Islam results so far in refugees raping all over European refugee centres, attacking to OUR way of living and constant intolerance towards Christians, Buddhists, etc. The fact that Paris banlieus saw celebrations yesterday by Maghreb youth makes it clear: this fusion between Western civilisation and Islam does not work. The horse of Troy finally unleashed its secret army of warriors. Islam warriors.

Finance a “european muslims for peace” campaign. 2. Social conditions and oportunities. People turn to extreme views when they feel they have been wronged by the establishment…europe must do it’s best to provide chances to educate and help. 3. History…tell it like it is. Any misdeeds and crimes commited against foreign nations in the past should be aknowledged and be in history books. They should know they are dealing with a state that is fair, unbiased and truthfull to its citizens. The truth will win them over.

Did you know that the shooters of Charlie Hebdo were Algerian? Typically they were french citizens because Algeria was a french colony…you don’t suppose history may have been a contributing factor to their radicalism? If everything is brought to the light and evetyone knows everything then radicals will have nothing to reveal against europe and young europeans, muslim or not will not be easy to convert with their lies and religious BS.

    I think that we should mainly focus on the causes of radicalisation of young European muslims. The main reasons for radicalisation are frustration with society, discrimination, no money, no job, etc. If you look at situation for young people in the banlieus in France, it is not surprising that at least 1000 have joined ISIS and other jihadist groups. The same holds true for Tunisia, where over 3000 of its citizens have joined these groups. The youth unemployment is sky-high in these countries and many don’t see a future. This makes them very vulnerable for the influence of criminal gangs and radical islam.

    In Saudi-Arabia there is a very successful deradicalisation program in which young radicals get a job (or education, which leads to a job), a house and a wife to start a family. On top of this, they also get classes in which they study Islam more closely and learn that the non-violent interpretation of Islam prevails over radical Islam (Jihad). If we do this, these young people have something to live for.

    Simple: To combat extremism fed by imams, close all non-official mosques, install imams in the official ones that need to preach in a national language which is not arab or Turkish and that must have the nationality of the country where they preach, and export all foreign imams back to their country of origin. To combat any extremism after that: jail and judge, and expulsion in case of dual nationality. All other cases that still cause issues: ensure that legislation allows to deal with them in a proper manner without allowing them to enter society ever again. If this still doesn’t solve it, forbid the religion of hate alltogether.

      Education is not the problem; people wanting to be educated, and furthermore listening, is. In addition, the problem lies in aggressively secular agendas, which do not favour religious discourse from an earlier age and instead make the whole topic of religion a taboo and something separate from reality, and from education, and this leads to people finding their own way later, which is fine, good even for many, except for a smaller percentage that when searching for something deeper in life end up heading way off on a tangent because they read the wrong sources and/or listen to the wrong people.

    no we can’t because sauid arabia pays tons of money to suport sharia law outside of their country. All what european countries are doing is “playing nice” with the oil supplier. In America all sharia law imports was banned as UNCONSTITUTIONAL and therefore banned imports of any religious laws into american system. They dealt with it, EU will be destroyed by not doing so. And thats not by the fascists or conservatives but actually by the regressive leftists. If EU can’t defend its values, the human rights and everything its stands for then maybe they should reconsider – muslim sharia culture with no respect to human rights whatsoever OR European Union and Human rights

    My opinion is that the State should have a strong impact on the conduct of the citizens living within its borders. Ghettos should be avoided by fixing quotas on ethnicities in schools, public housing, sport and recreational centres and so on so forth. A reintroduction of obligatory military service for all citizens would greatly help, as it would favour the mixing of different social classes / ethnic and religious groups. Radicalisation should be also hardly repressed, because preventive actions help but sometimes fear is the only efficient deterrecnt for human missbehaviours..

    In my view, the best way to prevent the rampant in religious extremism is to stop sending our children religious school at a very early age. When children become old enough to understand what region meant to them and their society let them learn it. Also this should be controlled by government. The class room should be open to authorities to make sure that the education is being given in a right sense.
    We all should follow Tajikistan. We should teach our children to respect the culture of the country where we live in. We should teach our children that religion is for the well being our human, not the other way round.

      And introduce proper religious education back into schools so that young people can receive open-ended religious education instead of the choice only being between secular-agenda or overtly Islamic schools.

    Send them out of Europe, all of them to their motherland then close the EXTERNAL borders, work for an european unity with CIVILISED PEOPLE … Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims…

    Stop promoting the politics of elitism, segregation, polarisation and systematic racism. Ever wondered why it is so easy for a terrorist group to brainwash French and Belgian citizens? As the general statements are the easiest to make, it is convinient to blame it all on the religion. Turn the scenario the other way around IF KKK was brainwashing Arab Christians in Arab countries, some of them would adhere if they faced segregation, polarisation and racism on daily basis.

    You are kidding, right? To me, it looks like young European muslims are radicalised in the same way as young Europeans became socialists a few decades ago. Furthermore, messages like the one shown at the photo are also found in the behaviour of socialists, nationalists and even media.

    it’s interesting isn’t it that if someone decides to become a neo nazi and has a meeting place on and off line to propogate those ideas there would be outrage, but coming to the west, assuming you can still force your daughters and wives to be covered up, sent off to an arranged marriage and suggest that anyone who disagrees with you should be executed..is sort of ok because it is someone’s culture? No. If I were to go to the middle east i would wear a headscarf (as many female western journalists are seen to be doing when they report from there), and as woman i don’t mind the simple head scarf, but i think there is a thin line between religious tolerance and the assault on womens’ rights that is tolerated. Either we value these freedoms in the west or we don’t, if we do, then those are rules, if you want to live those are the rules. I think being a bit more clear about these boundaries would give a voice and support to muslims who also don’t like these things, would allow deportation to become a real possibility for those who disobey rules on gender equality and who incite violence, it would also actually increase tolerance and decrease the fear that people have around their muslim communities. I am old enough to remember morrocans in italy who wore jeans and teashirts, muslims in britain who simply wore a head scarf ect., jesus what’s with all these ruddy uniforms?

    You can’t, they care nothing for your values or western society. To believe you can change them is blind stupidity.

    What we could do is set an example… For instance we could impale the Pope and all the cardinals on St Peter’s square and then put a sign up saying “He who worships any religion shall be impaled like our own.” Then nobody will put in a claim for racism… it will be pure european equality…(we already visit Italy and Greece for Roman and Greek mythology we could do the same with the Vatican) and this will never be an issue anymore…
    And if people want to be religious they can go to America, or Israel or Saoudi Arabia or Iran where all the extremists like themselves live… and bomb each other happily ever after…
    So we can go back to what we do best… watch and comment

    According to Malala, not criticizing islam, being careful about what we say and showing that we accept muslims:
    “The more you speak against islam and against all muslims, the more terrorists it will create. It’s important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it. If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism. It will radicalize more terrorists. So it’s important they show harmony toward muslims and say they are accepted in this world…”

    Invading another countries such as Irag and ahganistan and killing civilians make people want to revenge.

    Find the source of who is funding them and deal with those people directly. Find the source of money for ISIS and sanction any country buying ISIS oil and supporting or profiting from supplies sold to them. Actively support peace in the middle east. All EU member states to stay out of the politics of all middle east countries, condemn violence in all its forms by all countries, not selectively.

    You can’t prevent the radicalisation of something that’s radical by nature. It’s like asking how can we make communism or nazism more peaceful regimes

    Islam has to fix it. They have to change their imperilastic strategy. Sometimes they expand peaceful, sometimes by terrorism. Fact is, that they expand. This is behind it. Realise what they want.

    Enemies of freedom, go to hell; and let us delete the religions. Better renounce on God than have to see these lunatics destroy our wonderful united Europa! Other places can make their own rules except a couple of things: death penalty of all kinds and torture that sadly are used in our western homelands.I don’t consider the USA to be my homeland, but I am a western european, who wants to be able to be, live and work anywhre in Europa, he wants.

    It is never too late. We need to make them integrate into society. More sports in schools would be a good start. They also need more education about what it means to be a European. We went down the road of intolerance once and it led to a world war; lets not do that for a third time.

    Saying that the European Culture must be respected, and so the primary law they must respect is the european. We respect the other cultures, mainly when we travel to other countries, and they must respect our culture. They can use symbols of the religion but the burka must be forbidden in all public places, except in religious celebrations or “special” dates.

    Hi. How to stop radicalisation in Europe? Easy. Be a Europe that stands for something rather than the appearance of something. How is anyone supposed to be inspired by contradiction?! If certain ministers say that the U.K “is a Christian country” and want to be taken seriously, and so too other ministers in Europe, and the general population, who say they desire unity and peace, and similarly, be taken seriously enough for others to be inspired, then they need to give practical examples of such desires, and instead of picking and choosing the Christian bits that are politically convenient to pick, the requirement is there to be confident in such assertions, and choose all the moral and ethical bits, not on the basis of them being convenient – when is Christianity ever convenient in the worldly sense – but in the belief that therein is the way forward to a more peaceful co-existence. Then, and only then, will there be less aggressive opposition. Leaders ought to be confident in what they believe and not be contradictory. To make bold and daring statements is going to bring a negative reaction unless people believe that what such and such a person said is what they really believe; otherwise, it leads many believing that they are being lied to, they are being undermined, they are being patronized, or being side-lined. And a small percentage of those are going to be weaker-minded fundamentalists.

    If Europe really desires peace and unity, and freedom of thought and conscientious living, then there needs to be the room for religious dialogue, equal between Christians and other religions, with atheists included, instead of a militantly over-secularized Europe, dressed up in its politically-correct language apparel, with so-called ‘equality’ as a name-badge, whilst being aggressively de-humanizing, and anything but ‘equal’. Oh, the irony.

    Hi. How can people be inspired by contradiction? Contradiction does not foster inspiration but rather a whole bunch of unhelpful feelings. Contradiction creates a world where people feel isolated, attacked and on edge, preyed upon, and not listened to. And it is the public who pays for this because we are the ones who end up being targeted on the one side by crazy-minded fundamentalists and on the other by political spin-doctors and their media puppets. So Europe needs to set a better example…

    – this is called: taking the plank out of one’s own eye first!

    To inspire people, Europe needs to stand for something, not just the appearance of something…

    When it does, then maybe young people will not seek out or listen to evil sources in the first place, ever, no matter who or where they are.

    When politicians speak about virtue and goodness but then do not make laws that stand for what they preach then no one believes them because people sense in their hearts that there are contradictions even when they can’t understand why.

    The environment you nurture feeds those whom you are responsible for.

    Laws based on ethics and morals that are only selected out of convenience – power; money – and do not follow the truth-line all the way through will always be contradictory and succeed only in building a world of confusion and chaos.

    And herein lies the irony: Europe is supposed to stand for ‘equality’ and yet the very system of rule-making that states equality is the very system that is succeeding in achieving the diametric opposite. Because of contradictions based on convenience. If people desire a unified Europe then these contradictions surely cannot remain. I’ll list a few contradictions:

    – We are all ‘equal’ and yet babies in the womb do not have outright protection and an equal right to life.

    – We are all ‘equal’ except that people who are sick, aged or lonely can be let go, they are expendable, apparently, and legally allowed to commit suicide?!

    – We are all ‘equal’ except that Religion is not taught in schools. The choice is either Islam or no religion, for the most part, instead of across-the-board, open-ended religious education, which ought to include Christian teaching; in other words, Atheism is apparently real life and those who practice religion are just following a hobby?! Wrong. All religious people – Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims – would concur that religion is life. So who made non-religious people more important? I thought we were all equal!

    – We are all ‘equal’ except that people are not valued by the very fact we are human but rather how productive we are. You see, are disabled people valued as equal? Are they ‘equal’ only when they manage to get up a step on their own or even reach the Olympics? Or are they valuable because they bring out the best in people; they make people care; they are human like everyone else; they are fine and lovable as they are, without having to perform well?

    The contradiction is the brand of ‘equality’ that is flashed in people’s eyes as some kind of badge of certification, when in REALITY, this ‘equality’ badge is just a bad marketing advertisement that is hiding a horribly de-humanizing contradiction.

    Europe needs to go forward without playing the blame game, without contradictions, without making excuses, and then maybe everyone, even would-be fundamentalists, will be inspired enough to live vaguely healthy and happy lives.

    More surveillance of muslim organistions and groups, forbidding the external non European funding and communication of muslim groups, less shyness in taking action (convict them when they do something and there is proof) a mandatory, government overseen revision of the muslim religious materials (Koran and such), active integrationist policies as opposed to tolerance. No burkas, no beard, no traditional rags, no prayers in the daily life for instance at the job.
