26 July 2016

In this guest contribution for Die Welt, EFD Programme Director Ahmad Mansour talks about the terrorist attack which occurred on a train in Würzburg (Germany) in July 2016. There is no such thing as ‘fast-track’ radicalisation, Mansour argues. The will to commit a terror attack doesn’t simply manifest from one day to another. Radicalisation is a process that is facilitated by certain mindsets which are often deeply rooted in religious beliefs, such as believing that life is merely a trial for the afterlife.
