Children are free from suspicion and manipulable

In this interview with Abendzeitung München, EFD Programme Director Ahmad Mansour discusses the case of a twelve-year-old who allegedly planned a bomb attack on a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen, Germany. This recruitment of children by terrorist or criminal organisations is not a new phenomenon, Mansour explains. Children have been in the focus of Islamists for years, be it Hamas or the Taliban.

Islam expert refers to Salafism as ‘an ideology of violence’

Educators are left absolutely unprepared by their professional training to deal with the issue of Salafism in schools, EFD Programme Director Ahmad Mansour explains in this interview with Neue Westfälische. We must invest into preventive measures to enable the teachers to recognise radicalisation through means of rhetoric, behaviour and mindset.


Interview

The ideology is stronger than a pseudo-state

In this interview with jetzt.de, EFD Programme Director Ahmad Mansour cautions that the recent chalking up of military victories against Isis should not be equated with progress in the battle against the groups’ extremist ideology. We must continue all the more to fight Islamist radicalisation, Mansour urges, as followers of the ideology are increasingly prevented from leaving the country, raising the potential for attacks in Germany.
