Michel Moutot / Agence France Presse:Fight Al-Qaeda with satire, ridicule: researchers — LONDON —
Satire and ridicule can help win the fight against Al-Qaeda by stripping it of its glamour and mystique, a team of researchers argue in a report released in London and in comments to AFP. — Beating the Islamist movement …
THAT GIVES ME AN IDEA!:
"Terrorism must be defeated through the deliberate 'toxification' of the al-Qaeda brand; not by making it seem dangerous, but by exposing it as dumb," Jamie Bartlett, one of the report's authors, told AFP.
"Al-Qaeda has to be ridiculed as the equivalent of a middle-aged dad at a school disco: enthusiastic, incompetent and excruciatingly uncool."
Bartlett, together with Jonathan Birdwell and Michael King, published "The edge of violence, a radical approach of extremism" on the website of the London-based think tank Demos on Friday.
The report summarised two years of work in Britain, Canada, Denmark, France and the Netherlands, which included interviews with 58 people convicted of terror-related offences and with 20 radical, but non-violent Muslims.
Researchers also interviewed 70 Muslims in Canada and 75 local and national experts.

Demos was founded in 1993 by former Marxism Today editor Martin Jacques, and Geoff Mulgan, who became its first director.HOW CAN WE REALLY WIN WW4? IT'S SIMPLE:
- WE NEED TO KILL AS MANY OF THE ENEMY AS WE CAN.
- THAT WILL DO THE MOST TO DISCREDIT THEIR IDEOLOGY.
- AND WE NEED TO LIBERATE THEIR WOMEN FROM ISLAMO-MISOGYNY WITH HARSH SANCTIONS AGAINST ALL MUSLIM NATIONS WHICH ALLOW HONOR-KILLING, FORCED MARRIAGE AND POLYGAMY.
- AND WE NEED TO ENFORCE HARSH SANCTIONS AGAINST ALL NATIONS WHICH DON'T ALLOW FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE OF RELIGION - PEOPLE MUST BE FREE TO LEAVE ISLAM; NOW THEY LIVE UNDER A DEATH THREAT.
- THESE ACTIONS AND NOT 'RIDICULE" - ARE WHAT WILL BRING US VICTORY AND ONE BILLION + PEOPLE LIBERTY!
