    Default Wake Up: counter-radicalisation

    A BBC News interview of a grassroots community activist, Jahan Mahmood, from Birmingham (UK), on countering the Islamist message; which is not always helped by the BBC's coverage and officialdom's stance:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBx7jmzxXJg

    The interview (under 5 mins) was in June 2014, following the BBC broadcasting an ISIS recruitment video throughout the day. The last few minutes are very direct and foriegn policy is mentioned as a contributor to radicalisation.

    Some of the themes raised appear in other threads and my posts.

    An article with updates on grassroots activists fighting extremism, one of whom is Jahan Mahmood (cited above).

    The sub-title:
    While David Cameron urges Muslim people to do more to fight extremism, volunteers such as Jahan Mahmood are working tirelessly to steer young people away from a destructive path – and doing it much more effectively than the government’s own highly distrusted counter-terrorism scheme
