Countering Radical Islam Today

The generational challenge from Islam that Western secular governments will face is that there are schools, many reportedly financed by Saudi interests, which proselytize restrictive and vindictive views of Islam to young students worldwide.

One method of countering this propaganda is to provide a voice for disillusioned former ISIS converts and captives.

Western countries should encourage those people to speak out instead of banning them from returning to their original home.

The threat we will face is from naive youth who believe the ISIS propaganda.

Here is a list from the UN of organizations working to do just that:
