Canada needs a better approach to dismantling Islamist networks

In a recent Toronto Sun post, Candice Malcolm declares the need for a better approach to dismantle Islamist networks.

Her column thoughtfully differentiates Muslims from Islamists from jihadists.

Malcolm notes “Muslims are individual followers of the Muslim faith; their beliefs are private and in the public realm, they embrace secular values and Western institutions, while Islamists, by contrast, are Muslims who do not separate politics from religion. They want to impose their fundamentalist doctrine of Islam onto our society to create a Muslim theocracy governed by Sharia Law.”

How are jihadists different and why do we “need a better approach to combat these cultural institutions that recruit, radicalize and spread a hateful ideology throughout our communities?”

‘Deprogram’ radical Islamists. How?

The end of 2017 not only marked another passing year but, also, marked the victory claimed by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi over ISIS. Candice Malcolm explains, in heimages-7r Toronto Sun column, that defeating ISIS on the battlefield was accompanied by militants fleeing the country to infiltrate Europe and the West.

Malcolm notes that “unlike traditional wars, the war against jihadist terrorists is happening through covert measures,” which is further destabilizing  “a region already inundated with millions of displaced migrants.”
