Released Tuesday, 30th May 2017
Good episode? Give it some love!
Marijuana could be driving young Islamists to terrorism! It sounds extraordinary but Salman Abedi the Manchester bomber, and many other Islamist extremists, as well as high school shooters, were habitual users. How does this tie in to how we fight Islamist extremism? Nick Margerrison, standing in for Jon Gaunt, spoke to Tom Nichols, Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College in Rhode Island.
Before that, are our children being taught to sympathise with Islamic extremists? A new book in UK schools recommends children as young as seven write "a letter to a terrorist" to help understand their motives. This book, Talking About Terrorism, and published just weeks before the Manchester attack, calls terrorism "a type of war". How dare this filth be published in our schools? Nick spoke to Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education.
