Default 4 Short Video Clips by Formers

Four short video clips where ex-radicals give their stories: three British and one German; three Muslims and one fascist.

One of them, Shahid Butt, I know slightly, as a former Jihadist radical, with a very mixed history; with history in Bosnia and Yemen. His voyage away took years. His video is available on YouTube: or the main website of ConnectFutures (linked below).

There are several online references to his story; this one is fair and in one place points out his account about the Yemen is contested:

ConnectFutures is a small, Birmingham based company, led by two women and their website states:
Our Formers project aims to tell the stories of four former extremists in their own words. These include a mixture of both former ‘Islamist’ as well as former ‘far-right’ violent extremists.

One day I will merge this into the main thread on radicalisation:
