A recent study performed by the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) of Great Britain revealed that only 2 of Britain’s 33 deradicalization programs actually work. The main takeaway from the article, not surprisingly to some of us, via Gatestone Institute:
The main reason for the failure of the other 31 programs, according to the Times‘ report on the study, is:
“…that facilitators were uncomfortable dealing with sensitive topics and would often refuse to engage if they were brought up. BIT found that teachers in particular were afraid to bring up matters of race and religion with their students without appearing discriminatory, often causing them to refuse to talk about these topics entirely.”
The two effective initiatives, according to the Times, were “one defying political correctness and tackling difficult issues head-on and the other directly addressing extremism in religious [Islamic] texts.”
For as long as I can remember we’ve been taught that “diversity is our strength”. Yet I challenge you to name one instance, outside of perhaps athletics, where diversity is specifically a strength, an area where we’ve only exceeded from diversity (rather than just do something of equivalent value). More often than not, it appears to be a glaring weakness. Further down in the article:
In Britain, the majority (82%) of the 228 people in custody for terrorism-related offenses espouse Islamist extremism. In August 2017, the EU’s counter-terrorism coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove, said that the UK has more radicalized Muslims than any other European country. He added that Britain “has identified 20,000 to 35,000 radicals. Of these, 3,000 are worrying for MI5, and of those 500 are under constant and special attention.”
Contrary to what they’ll try and teach you these days, Islam is not native to Great Britain. It’s not surprising to me in the least bit that the vast majority of terrorism related offenses are Islamic terrorism. The fact that you even need deradicalization centers in your country should probably raise a red flag or two. And again, it seems to me there is a much greater problem from diversity here than a strength. And we are our own worst enemy with trying to fix it. Fear of appearing racist or bigoted is hampering the only two known initiatives to beginning to address radicalization. The ultimate answer, of course, would be to have stricter immigration laws from the beginning. But that’d be too considerate to the native population. Western civilization can survive with a plethora of ideas and beliefs for anyone to practice, but only within reason. Mass replacement of the native population will inevitably end in bloodshed.
