See this is the problem. Us vs. Them. Muslims think that the world should and ultimately would convert to Islam, till then everyone is their enemy. But are the Muslims themselves safe? Sunnis hate followers of other religions as well as Shias, Ahamadias etc. so they kill them. Shias too have issues similar. So who is safe. This guy although I don't think would want to kill anybody now but is too radicalised now to the point of no return.

Umer Khan no. there is obviously a moral majority. history has so many examples of the moral majority being rendered irrelevant by a violent minority. there are many populations that have billions of individuals as members... that does not mean we shouldn't speak about the few within such populations who choose to behave violently. we should speak about them. especially if we care about the fact that the demographic most often murdered by groups like isis are other Muslims. not every convo on such topics needs to be jumped on as a #notall moment. #sometimessome ...cuz some is all it takes.

Umer Khan Well I guess you are right, not 2 billion Muslims but see the process has started. The process of making people like Houzefa believe that the Age of Caliphate is arriving, that one day everyone will follow Islam. You see, I am not against Islam or its tenets. But people are fast being doctrined into believing this falsified truth and moreover violance is being carried out in the name of it.

I haven't finished all the episodes yet but wanted to say, I was hesitant to listen to this podcast fearing it would be a lot of fear mongering and contributing to prejudices against Islam. I haven't perceived that to be the case I think, though maybe any coverage of this subject will be to some extent. I appreciated how Rukmini alluded to how actions by the US created ISIS and other terror groups in the first place. (Also as a side note, the music is very good)

I live in Iraq and I'm telling you that America (with it's latest actions) will eventually loss Iraq, unfortunately. If America wants to get democratic Iraq they must support the Kurdish, in my opinion that's the only solution.

First This is amazing podcast Second please be sure that the problem are not only those radicals personal but it's in the Islam itself. Islam allowed Jihad, captivity, killing non Muslims and so on..

Melissa Thank you for your comment Your right, the majority of Muslims are not radicals (like all my family members) but in the other hand they know nothing about ISLAM, my family are Muslims but they can't even read the Qur'an! it true the radicals are very small percentage of Muslims in the world but they are well educated Muslims, all they want is: strictly applying prophet action (like Jihad, slavery, prohibiting woman go outside her house) in there life. So in the summary: 1-you must attack the source of the problem itself not personals. 2- the West world should better study there action in the Middle East and how they going to change it to democracy region.

Melissa thank you for disagreeing politely. I'm not sure how right or wrong either of our perspectives are (so what follows will be mostly my opinion/some spitballing). I don't feel the fact that it is a small minority of radicals, is an argument against reform itself. a very small minority of a billion+ is still a very large number of individuals... there's a correlation here with the concept that revolution can be achieved by a mere 3% of a population... a small minority could also powerfully impact the religion, and the aspects of it that effect culture, for the positive. I have no idea what that would ultimately look like... tho it may already be happening in the many/growing examples of reformist minded Muslims... themselves a small minority with in the billion+. after listening to such individuals I can't help but feel that the discussions around reform are very much a feature in the bigger picture - the when, where, why of radicalization as well as possible solutions. all key talking points in reform discussions. the podcast was done beautifully. I'm on my second go through. I appreciate the open frank presentation that leaves room for listeners like you and me to have our own feelings and come to our own conclusions about the facts. many individuals are probably seduced by radicalization due to the motivators you mentioned; money, power, respect. my conclusion after listening to the pod, is that the initial appeal for Huzaifa has more to do with a desire for belonging/purpose etc. spitball: if he had found that sense of community with minority Muslims entertaining reform instead of radicalization.. or even with a secular group of peers etc, who knows... but I'm suspicious reformist ideas could have positive effect specifically on the fact that the demographic most maligned, marginalized, and murdered by Islamic radicals... are other Muslims... I agree with you on the idea that the root of the problem isn't religion per se. I believe the root of the problem lies in the rationalization of violence in the name of our belief/faith systems...imo this is the base phenomenon ultimately addressed by the podcast. more or less thinking out loud so I'll give it a rest. feel free to respond or pass. thx again for sharing your view.

he is a liar and is a threat, he is not taking responsibility for what he has done and still thinks himself as a victim of the West
