The Islamists amongst us: rehabilitation or indefinite detention?

Dec 1, 2019 by

by Archbishop Cranmer:

“Enough is enough,” said Prime Minister Theresa May in the wake of the Islamist slaughter of seven innocent people on London Bridge in June 2017. “We must not and cannot pretend that things can continue as they are,” she explained, and she went on to talk of the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism, that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism”. There had been far too much tolerance of extremism, she said, and an antidote was more urgent than ever: “It will only be defeated when we turn people’s minds away from this violence, and make them understand that our values, pluralistic British values, are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate.”

Usman Khan, disciple of Anjem Choudary and convicted terrorist, has killed two more people on London Bridge. He was out of prison on licence, wearing a tag so he could be monitored. He had served just half of his time, and the law (as it stood at the time of his sentence) afforded him the luxury of mandatory parole, as it did with Choudary, who was released last year. There is no parole board to persuade or dupe into believing that they have repented of their evil ways: liberty was their statutory right. Despite Theresa May’s overtures of urgency and intolerance of the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism”, Usman Khan was free to attend a Cambridge University conference at London Bridge, where he killed two more innocent people.

As many as 70 convicted terrorists released from prison could now be plotting London Bridge III in their quest to establish the British Caliphate.

How do you “turn people’s minds” away from their evil Wahhabi ideology, when they are persuaded it is the path to righteousness and glory? How do you “make them understand” that our heretical values and blasphemous beliefs are superior to their sacred revelation? How do you teach devout Islamists that “pluralistic British values” are a better way of life and a surer path to salvation than the example of their prophet Mohammed?

How do you open their minds to the possibility that Mohammed was wrong?
