NSI & DOOD Radio interviews Victor Guembes
Terrorists and Jihadists are recuiting our children!
Terrorism is alive and well and threatening our very existence and lifestyle. Unless you have been living under a rock you are also aware that homegrown terrorists seem to be emerging everywhere throughout the Western world.
What do we really know about the roots of terrorism and how it has been able to grow unnoticed for decades by most law-abiding people. There isn’t a country in the world today that is safe from terrorism and from extremists. These extremists have a distorted agenda and want the world unified and controlled by radicalized Islam. All other religious beliefs, whether they are Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or any other kind of worship are unacceptable to jihadists.
Today we all live with the constant threat that these violent fundamentalists are planning some kind of hideous attack on ordinary citizens. People from all over the world wonder about their safety when they attend large public gatherings.
Are our children safe?
As our children return to school, are you worried about who their friends are? Keep an open mind and remember that between middle school and college, young people are very susceptible and easily led astray. Terrorists recruiters have infiltrated our entire society and are looking for those who are vulnerable, unhappy, struggling in school, while trying to find purpose and meaning in their life. It is always shocking when we discover that one of our own children has become radicalized and has been brainwashed by one of these fundamentalist groups who want to destroy the very essence of our lifestyle. Warning signs can range from subtle to drastic changes in attitude or personality. This is the time we have to be most vigilant whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. It is normal for kids to pull away from their parents as they mature, however if they are living under your roof keep a watchful eye out for peculiar behavior of any sort
Is Prison adding to the growth of terrorism in the US?
Another segment of our society that is extremely vulnerable to terrorism and fundamentalism are people who are incarcerated. In our prisons inmates are exposed to gangs and live in an environment of gangs,hate, and anger. Prisoners are extremely vulnerable to home grown terrorism. What are they learning while they are in jail? We all know that rehabilitation does not happen in our currently broken prison system. Having said that, what happens to these people when they are eventually released and paroled? No job, no money, no skills. The world has moved on and they have not. It is a dangerous mix.
Where do their sentiments lie? Undoubtedly most of them return to a life of crime. The most frightening thought is the possibility that many of them have been radicalized while incarcerated.
