That's an interesting point. The thing is, though, if you're already Muslim I can't (politely) think of a better word than radicalisation. Losing one's marbles? Going nuts? I mean you can't just watch the news and think yes, that's a good idea. We need to kill non believers and believers too until we get our way. There has to be some form of persuasion and brainwashing or radicalisation would seem the most appropriate descriptors.

Maybe it was a red bus with a big lie on the side. :hysterical:

I see thw term used a lot on here, wonder how many of them are Muslims?

Labels seem very popular, not sure if I understand this one.

Our country is responsible for her. The inconvenient truth is she's right.

Weirdly, I sort of agree with you (and this lady you reference). There is some responsibility there.

However, I'm also more than happy to see she doesn't benefit from anything the UK has to offer. Whether that be the inside of a prison cell, freedom or whatever.

If she was radicalised in the U.K. may be one should have a closer look at her family, school etc. You can't hold a country responsible if her family? are at fault or her teachers. Look at the local mosque where she perhaps used to pray. Don't hold a whole country responsible.

I agree - this is how I read Paulry's comment in fairness, that there is a responsibility locally / surrounding her / through her influences.

This is weird. We agree on something.

Speaking of the atmosphere at home, this can't be helpful in any way.

Ultimate Airsoft Range said it provided targets of other public figures, citing Donald Trump, Adolf Hitler and Justin Bieber as examples.

I preferred the "Thanks for not joining ISIS" Mothers Day cards on Etsy.

Same here. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if my (adult) son had given me that card I'd have laughed.

It's pretty rank and I'm disappointed to see this in the area I used to live in :(

Seems reasonable.

Or maybe the retirement cards - "WOW - Forty years on the job and you never joined ISIS!"

I'm sure they do.

But none of them are related to a domestic UK problem with radical, violent religious groups, are they.
