I like this.. I really do...

But can you imagine.. during the holidays here in the US...

Like on christmas, the whole family gathered around the TV, watching the parade...

Then a commercial like this comes on telling you are your family... "dont blow yourselves up"

I like it, I really do

It just seem incredibly odd that in the modern world we need a commercial to tell people not to blow themselves up in the vicinity of others

Please don't think I am being snarky as I understand and respect your point of view...

But... an honest question to you if I may?

how would you go about it then (taking into consideration your culture and country and if the situation was similar to the Middle East and all else up until now has failed to help eradicate militant terrorism?

Thanks in advance



I think you may have mis-read my post.

I wasnt saying anything bad about the method, or the video. I stated I like it, I think its a good Idea.

I was just taking a step back and looking at everything as a whole and sort of saying..

Man.. is this what we have come to as a species? Where we have to run commercials telling people not to blow themselves up?

Its just sad this is where we are at, thats all. I dig the commercials.

I share your thoughts, it's a #ing shame, adverts saying don't murder other people.
Only savages would need such an advert.

I'm not sure anyone has mentioned this, but it's been confirmed in interviews with British intelligence officials that they have been creating "viral" videos to to try curb the tide of radicalization in England. According to them, it was pretty successful as well. This could be a continuation of the same program, or an offshoot. Either way, its a good step in the right direction. To keep a long story short, they picked up on a lot of the language and messages that were used in videos that were created to radicalize Muslims, and turned the message around using the same types of messages.
Here's a good podcast episode on it. The Power of Words: An Interview with Sven Hughes

This isn't directed at terrorists, c'mon.

You think education and reformation regarding terrorism is a few month affair? It's a generation and longer affair. This is for the younger generation. To help teach the young, and perhaps sway a bit older lost folks who might consider joining a terror cause, to think otherwise. This will take a long while to come to terms with. They have to start somewhere. Education is the best way imo, you are not magically going to fix the problem any other way.

I'm still astounded there are people here who think punishing innocents related to a terrorist is a clever fix to the problem. Not only will that not fix the problem, it's a disturbing and sickening premise. Sins of the father huh? So sad to see some people regressing.

Nice song, I like it.
The whole video I was expecting them to persuade him to give up on terrorism and then for all of them to cheerfully go and stone an adulterer girl.

This is an interesting approach but I am not convinced of its efficacy.

People are coerced into violence by quotes from the quran that seem to support that type of action. This is due in part to the life long indoctrination that the quran, the word of allah, is intransigent. So show them verse that says instead of 72 virgins they will incur the wrath of allah for murdering the innocent who tell all.

Part of me is quite skeptical though. Children are routinely enslaved, raped, and ultimately murdered already. There doesn't seem to be any fear of reprisal from allah for that...

Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the imam to interpret the word of allah. As long as there is a human link in the chain between the word of allah and the ears of the faithful the possibility of the message being corrupted remains.

A load of rubbish

All a whitewash

They have been killing each other since the birth of Islam

They killed the prophet and it's family too

This is just to appease the lefties in the west

Is that the same kid in the image? The same Syrian kid that they used as propaganda? He looks uncannily similar, if it isn't him.

I wonder how long it took to put that makeup on him both times. I am sure the second time around would have been a bit faster.
