Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau argued in an interview to air next week that a reformed Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS) terrorist can evolve into “an extraordinarily powerful voice for preventing radicalization,” an endorsement of programs he has promoted to reintegrate veteran jihadists into Canadian society.

The end-of-year interview with CTV will air in full on December 29, but the outlet published snippets of Trudeau’s responses to a variety of questions on Friday. Asked about the potential to rehabilitate Canadian citizens who traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State, the prime minister said, “There’s a range of experiences when people come home.”

“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,” he argued.

CTV notes that, in promoting rehabilitation for these individuals, Trudeau is contradicting Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, who recently expressed pessimism at reforming jihadist individuals with battleground experience.

  1. The lack of self awareness [in opinion] is strong with this one.

    Never in my now 5 decades of life have I seen, heard, read of such an out of touch simp, soyboy, SJW, virtue signaler and hater of his own nation and identity as with Justin Trudeau. If he was still only a part time drama teacher and/or ski board instructor it would be bad enough. But as PM of Canada and likely a c-sucker of George Soros and his globalist, leftist minions, well J.T. scares the HELL OUT OF ME and he should do the same to you all as well.

    Um Mr. PM, returning jihadists SHOULD BE ARRESTED AT POINT OF RETURN, TRIED AND TOSSED IN PRISON FOR LIFE! In fact by being treasonous against their own country, the DEATH PENALTY should enacted to any of those who are convicted.
