Husein Hamdani is also tied in with major counter-radicalization organizations in the USA and UK.
There is a lot to read about him at Point de Bascule here and here. If you can at all, please take the time and read these links.
A news report on him here from today on Quebec TV
Here he is talking about doing ‘dawa’ (Islamic proselytization) and using many of the common deceptions muslims use such as quoting ‘no compulsion in religion’ and not quoting “he who changes his islamic religion, kill him”
Here he is being praised for helping defeat ‘radicalization’ as opposed to funding and promoting it, which is what it looks like he may have actually been doing, from the Globe and Mail.
It’s interesting that he describes having the Koran in one hand and a stick in the other as one of the possible alternatives for bringing the unbelievers to Islam. It’s just not the most effective option under current conditions.
