British Jihadis Are Depressed, Lonely and Need Help, Says Prof

Sarah Knapton, Telegraph, October 15, 2014

Teenagers and young people who flee Britain to fight jihad are just depressed and lonely and should be allowed to return to the UK without being criminalised, a leading professor has said.

Kamaldeep Bhui, Professor of Cultural Psychiatry and Epidemiology, at Queen Mary University of London, said that radicalisation should be treated as a health issue in the same way as drugs or alcohol abuse.

He has found that those on the path to radicalisation are most likely to be educated and come from wealthy families, but feel bored with their lives and socially isolated.

And girls are just as likely to start down to path to radicalisation as boys.

MI5 has said that there could be as many as 500 British fighters in Syria and dozens of women are believed to have travelled to the country to join Isis or marry jihadists.

One man known as “jihadi John” was filmed beheading American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

But Prof Bhui said that many teenagers were suffering from ‘youthful naivetee’ and were quickly disillusioned after travelling aboard to fight.

He interviewed more than 600 people in Muslim communities in Bradford and London to learn what drives Britons to risk their lives in a foreign country.

“Something about them suggests they are disaffected,” he said.

“The group who sympathised were younger, in full time education and generally wealthy. They were more likely to be depressed and socially isolated.

“There is a bit of youthful naïveté . They have romantic fantasies. They have never experienced sharia law or a caliphate before and they get there and it’s not like they thought.”

Prof Bhui found that people who expressed sympathy with jihadi or terrorist ideologies were likely to be well-educated, middle class and come from households earning more than £75,000. And women were slightly more likely to become more radicalised than men.

“We found women were no less likely and they were slightly more likely to have some of those sympathies. There is an increasing epidemic of girls,” he added.

Muslim parents have been warned to keep a close eye on their children to pick up signs of depression or loneliness.

He warned that youngsters who engaged in fantasy worlds or video games, comics or had online alternative identities were at greater risk.

David Cameron has said that Britons who travel to Syria or Iraq to join Islamic State (IS) militants will be treated as “an enemy of the UK” and could be stripped of their citizenship.

Lat month the Telegraph reported how hundreds of al-Qaeda recruits, including Britons, are being kept in safe houses in southern Turkey, before being smuggled over the border to Syria wage jihad. Two British men are already known to have died in the conflict including Mohammed ‘Mo’ El-Araj, 23, from Notting Hill, in West London.

The Prime Minister is pushing for increased legal powers to monitor suspected extremists and said passports could be removed for people attempting to travel abroad to fight.

But Prof Bhui added: “I think it would be a disaster, you criminalising them and disowning British citizens. Some of these kids are young and probably inexperienced and police in Wales took a different stance. They didn’t want to criminalise. I am happy to work with them”

Intriguingly, Prof Bhui found that migrants are unlikely to become radicalised because they are poorer, busier struggling to make a living, and they remember the problems of living in non-westernised countries.

“Those who are having a hard life, who are migrants, are too busy to have fantastic thoughts about attacks,” he said

“They are too busy to form a caliphate. They’ve already experienced adversary,” he added.

And he said that local imams could be crucial to keeping youngsters on the right path.

“A mosque is a protective factor,” he added: “These young people are disconnected from their families, disconnected from origins and when they come into contact, they think they are doing the right thing by connecting in a more orthodox form of Islam.

“I am suggesting that it’s important to have access to forms of orthodox teaching.”

  • If they are depressed and lonely, then they have obviously figured out the solution to their lachrymosity: Go be with people like them.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Britain should deport Prof. Camel-thief Bhui to Syria so he can provide company for the jihadists and they won’t be lonely anymore.

      • The name is likely Bangladeshi, so deporting him to Bangladesh just in time for the next cyclone storm surge up the flat Ganges River delta also seems eminently fair.

    • NoMosqueHere

      He warned that youngsters who engaged in fantasy worlds or video games, comics or had online alternative identities were at greater risk.


      Dear Prof. KamelDeepShi’ite Baba Booey: I grew up reading comics but I never wanted to join a homicidal religious group, such as yours. Do us all a favor and move back to the [expletive deleted] hole from whence you came.

        Obviously violent comics, cartoons, and video games idealizing Jihad are responsible, why, just the other day I turned on Boomerang, the retro-cartoon channel, and heard this:

    Here just walk over there and push this button and instantly all Your problems will be solved.

    • I would be depressed and lonely as well if I had treated women the way ISIS does.

      • Zolicon

        It is not just ISIS that treats Women like that.

        • Quite right; there’s also blacks like Lemaricus Davidson & Co.

          • Zolicon

            I was talking Men in general.

          • Who Me?

            In general I have found that most White men treat women very well. I have never tried to find out how other men treat their women.

          • Zolicon

            Them My Friend You have blinders on to the ways of this world.

            Men treat Women like Their concubines who belong in the Kitchen bare foot and Pregnant.

          • Who Me?

            I should have said “In MY experience White men treat…” In answer to your reply, I must say that SOME men will treat women badly, there is plenty of evidence to prove that, but on the whole if a woman is mistreated, she can pick up and leave her abuser (yes even if she has children) with the whole weight of the legal system behind her. Usually if a woman expects and demands respect from her partner, and returns the same to him, she will get it. I don’t think the majority of men in America have wanted their women barefoot and pregnant since, at the latest 1940. Most young men today have been raised by mothers who had jobs, drove cars, made decisions about everything involving the family. Many were raised by single mothers who did EVERYTHING. They also expect their wives to bring a certain income to the union. She can’t do that if she is chained to the kitchen stove. This of course, means Western men, not Muslim jihidis.

          • I have been married for 8 years, and I treat my wife as if she were my best friend, which in fact she is.

            If you want to tar all men with the same brush, that is certainly your own toxic prerogative, but I don’t own your “stuff”. It’s not part of my life.

          • Zolicon

            ” I have been married for 8 years, and I treat my wife as if she were my best friend, which in fact she is.”

            That is good but do You treat Her like She is Your equal and does She treat You as Her equal ?

          • In my own experience, it is the opposite sex parent’s approach to relationships that sets the tone for that of their children. A fellow who asks for his wife’s opinions on important matters and then accepts her input will raise a daughter who will avoid abusive relationships with men.

            If I hadn’t wanted that level of responsibility, I would have undergone a vasectomy many years ago. A mother who acts trashy enough will eventually convince her sons that all women are trash. Have you listen to rap “music”? It is weaponized misogyny.

            Why do you think that is?

          • Zolicon

            It is because the Alpha Male dominates even the Alpha Female and No I don’t listen to that Rap Crap.

    Here is a cut&paste with some of the finer points of the religion of peace:

    By: Joey Scioli Sr. (Joey The Patriot Scioli) ISLAM….CLEARLY AND CONCISELY EVIL AND VIOLENT!

    The Quran: Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”

    There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of “persecution” (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.” The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.

    Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.

    Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

    Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

    Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.” The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for today’s suicide bombers.

    Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

    Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

    Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-” This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes. It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle. Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption. (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

    Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…” Is pursuing an injured and retreating enemy really an act of self-defense?

    Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

    Quran (8:15) – “O ye who believe! When ye meet those who disbelieve in battle, turn not your backs to them. (16)Whoso on that day turneth his back to them, unless maneuvering for battle or intent to join a company, he truly hath incurred wrath from Allah, and his habitation will be hell, a hapless journey’s end.”

    Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah” From the historical context we know that the “persecution” spoken of here was simply the refusal by the Meccans to allow Muhammad to enter their city and perform the Haj. Other Muslims were able to travel there, just not as an armed group, since Muhammad declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad’s intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until “religion is only for Allah.” According to Ibn Ishaq (324), Muhammad justified the violence further by explaining that “Allah must have no rivals.”

    Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”

    Quran (8:59-60) – “And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy.”

    Quran (8:65) – “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

    Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.” According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam. Prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religions Five Pillars.

    Quran (9:14) – “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

    Quran (9:20) – “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.” The “striving” spoken of here is Jihad.

    Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews. This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in just the next 100 years. Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

    Quran (9:30) – “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

    Quran (9:38-39) – “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.

    Quran (9:41) – “Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if ye but knew.” See also the verse that follows (9:42) – “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them” This contradicts the myth that Muslims are to fight only in self-defense, since the wording implies that battle will be waged a long distance from home (in another country and on Christian soil, in this case, according to the historians).

    Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.” Dehumanizing those who reject Islam, by reminding Muslims that they are merely firewood for Hell, makes it easier to justify slaughter. It also explains why today’s devout Muslims have little regard for those outside the faith.

    Quran (9:88) – “But the Messenger, and those who believe with him, strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper.”

    Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

    Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

    Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story, which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source, tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son.

    Quran (21:44) – “We gave the good things of this life to these men and their fathers until the period grew long for them; See they not that We gradually reduce the land (in their control) from its outlying borders? Is it then they who will win?”

    Quran (25:52) – “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness…” “Strive against” is Jihad – obviously not in the personal context. It’s also significant to point out that this is a Meccan verse.

    Quran (33:60-62) – “If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” This passage sanctions the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder” in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those with “diseased hearts” (which include Jews and Christians 5:51-52), and “alarmists” or “agitators who include those who merely speak out against Islam, according to Muhammad’s biographers. It is worth noting that the victims are to be sought out by Muslims, which is what today’s terrorists do. If this passage is meant merely to apply to the city of Medina, then it is unclear why it is included in Allah’s eternal word to Muslim generations.

    Quran (47:3-4) “Those who reject Allah follow vanities, while those who believe follow the truth from their lord. Thus does Allah set forth form men their lessons by similtudes. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners,” Those who reject Allah are to be subdued in battle. The verse goes on to say the only reason Allah doesn’t do the dirty work himself is in order to to test the faithfulness of Muslims. Those who kill pass the test. “But if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

    Quran (47:35) – “Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,” This very important verse asserts that the Religion of Peace is not to grant peace to the broader society until Islamic rule has been established.

    Quran (48:17) – “There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom.” Contemporary apologists sometimes claim that Jihad means ‘spiritual struggle.’ Is so, then why are the blind, lame and sick exempted?

    Quran (48:29) – “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves” Islam is not about treating everyone equally. There are two very distinct standards that are applied based on religious status.

    Quran (61:4) – “Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way” Religion of Peace, indeed! This is followed by (61:9): “He it is who has sent His Messenger (Mohammed) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to make it victorious over all religions even though the infidels may resist.”

    Quran (61:10-12) – “O ye who believe! Shall I lead you to a bargain that will save you from a grievous Penalty?- That ye believe in Allah and His Messenger, and that ye strive (your utmost) in the Cause of Allah, with your property and your persons: That will be best for you, if ye but knew! He will forgive you your sins, and admit you to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, and to beautiful mansions in Gardens of Eternity.” This verse was given in battle. It uses the Arabic word, Jihad.

    Quran (66:9) – “O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.” The root word of “Jihad” is used again here. The context is clearly holy war, and the scope of violence is broadened to include “hypocrites” – those who call themselves Muslims but do not act as such.

    From the Hadith:

    Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.” Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings.

    Bukhari (52:220) – Allah’s Apostle said… ‘I have been made victorious with terror’ Abu Dawud (14:2526) – The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)

    Abu Dawud (14:2527) – The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

    Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah Muslim (1:149) – “Abu Dharr reported: I said: Messenger of Allah, which of the deeds is the best? He (the Holy Prophet) replied: Belief in Allah and Jihad in His cause…”

    Muslim (20:4645) – “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”

    Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.'” Muslim (19:4321-4323) – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”

    Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.

    Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

    Ibn Ishaq: 327 – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

    Ibn Ishaq: 990 – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.

    Ibn Ishaq: 992 – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.

    REMEMBER: A “”RADICAL”” Muslim Wants To Behead You…..AND A “”MODERATE”” Muslim Wants A “”RADICAL”” Muslim To Behead You!

      It’s a religion of conquest pure and simple, they don’t belong in western society, they are stuck in the 7th century.
      I don’t trust homo’s and lesbians because they define themselves by their sexuality, while there are much more important ways to define ones self, the same with Muslims, they define themselves by their religion. The western countries have become very secular, some would argue too much so, but do we really want to go back 13 hundred years, we know now what a mess the Catholics made of things in the dark ages, the Muslims won’t be any better, probably a lot worse.

    “Teenagers and young people who flee Britain to fight jihad are just depressed and lonely and should be allowed to return to the UK without being criminalised, a leading professor has said.”

    Of course, poor darlings.

    Should they leave the heads they chopped off behind or can they take them home, too?

    Maybe this dork can start a jihadist dating site.

    They certainly need therapy. Dr. Veloc recommends nine grams of lead at high velocity, delivered just behind the left ear.

    The bottom line is they know they don’t belong in England. They can in fact feel the nationalism in the soil. They know they don’t belong. Every human on the face of the Earth, longs to fit in. This is why multiculturalism is so against nature. The entire world has changed into fitting round pegs into square holes. Why are we Whites being made to suffer? What the f have any of us done? All these so called asylum seekers are full of sh**.. First of all, I do not see why this the problem of the poor put upon Whites of the world who only make up a lousy nine percent of the ENTIRE world’s population. The fact that all the failed brown and black races feel compelled to invade our White countries, only underscores the fact that Whites are the superior race. PERIOD. Shucks, wait, I forgot, all races and ethnies are equal. You are damn right they are! So, let these asylum seekers seek sanctuary in China(they have apparently topped our economy) India(hot on our trail to have economic hegemony!) So, why on Earth are European derived nations, and only European derived nations forced into accepting the refuse of the world? Come on! Make China and India accept the sludge of the world. And, the Japanese, and the S. Koreans! Come on! Every single solitary country that has smart people and capitalism, should be forced to take in all the world’s losers! God forbid we make Cuba, or North Korea, or Venezuela take them in. We should though. Paradises on Earth. As a matter of fact, I think all refugees should be sent to N.Korea, or Cuba. Or, stay where you were born.

    If they’re rich, it’s because they’re bored; if they’re poor, it’s because they’re poor (because of racism, obviously). It’s never minorities’ fault when they engage in criminal behavior.

    The disaster would be to let them back in the UK.

    It’s too late for them now, the Marxists have done them in, we are going down the same path.

    Does he not realize that it is mainstream Islam in the United Kingdom that is the primary breeding ground for the radicalization of British Muslims?

    Would anyone have even considered letting British citizens who fought for Germany back into England as if nothing had happened?

    In other words, these offspring of middle-class Muslims are the exact equivalent of the Marxist-chic brats who were infesting the universities of Europe and North America in the 1960s and 1970s.

    I have a couple of “theraputic” choices for them…

    Suicide or being killed by others…

    A good jihadi is a dead jihadi… And, better yet, they are with Allah in Hell !
