#Cyberpeacefare #CSpan Book Interview Inside Jihad #Dr Tawfid Hamid

EXCERPTS/QUOTES:

- "How Radical Islam Works - How to Defeat It

- Author was completely radicalized through: brainwashing-suppression critical thinking, use of hell fire, sex deprivation, desire to go to paradise meet with 72 women up there - it was bizarre - things that happened in my mind.

-Now using technology - remote control bombs - internet - social media.

-Need to talk about solutions not just about problems.

-Military has role but not real solution; like Doctor trying to treat symptom of disease versus disease itself.

-Disease is radicalism - fighting terrorism in brain attacks in the mind.

- Sees huge hope in use of technology - the internet social media.

- Modern interpretation of Koran - violent text - not just religion, but also thinking brain that leads to radicalism. If use internet social media - correct and proper content can change minds of many people and we can save the world from disaster."

(Author makes good sense from direct experience. Agree, need to Counter-Brainwash Radicalization through authoritative modern day teaching of the Koran to Counter Radical Interpretations/Teachings in schools/madrassas. Might Carnegie consider hosting social-media Interfaith Interoperabiity Dialogue Forum of leading religious leaders and scholars to counter ISIS propaganda ? Also, wonder whether social media moguls would be interested in supporting such a forum ?

Comment by Valentine Olushola Oyedipe on January 3, 2016 at 4:51pm

This is a must read book to read by all.The mind is the real thing to contend with; quoting Christain D.Larson"That a man can change himself...and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide-awake to the power of right thought".Given this quote, there is no gainsaying that, interfaith interoperability, teaching in school/madrassas,using cyber personal power/social media are the timely approaches to awaken the minds of men to power of right thoughts which all stake holders must not shy away from the unshirkable responsibilities.

As such, no one part/sub-system of the global whole should hesitate to take the bull by the horns at this crucial time.There is indeed hope in the use of technology because the connectivity is real as our entire existence today revolves around technology.This is evident in the relationship between social change and technology.Values , attitude, beliefs and perceptions can change as they are strongly connected to the  mind.Let us  work on the mind and save the world from disaster.Our actions yesterday are reactions of on today,and our actions today will be the reactions of tomorrow.

In the wake of the Hungarian parliament's vote to allow the executive to rule by decree, Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reflects on the call by some to expel Hungary from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization--on the grounds that the country no longer upholds the liberal-democratic values that should form the basis of the security association.

Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss these scenarios and also touch on how the virus has affected the Democratic primary, in which Joe Biden now has a commanding lead.
