Toronto Sun columnist Candice Malcolm joined today’s show to talk about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s controversial comments on whether or not former ISIS fighters can be de-radicalized and integrated back into the Canadian community.
“We know that actually someone who has engaged and turned away from that hateful ideology can be an extraordinarily powerful voice for preventing radicalization in future generations and younger people within the community,” Trudeau told CTV News.
Malcolm pointed out that ISIS has committed horrifying atrocities including burning people alive, beheading journalists, and persecuting Christians, women and gay people. Should Canadians ever welcome ex-ISIS fighters back into their communities?
Trudeau believes that ISIS fighters — people who committed genocide, burned Christians alive, sold women into slavery, and be-headed journalists — can be an “extraordinarily powerful voice” in Canada. https://t.co/i7cMPjZ51q
