For the Prime Minister Manuel Valls "any social, sociological and cultural excuse" not to be sought for terrorism. The implication is explained apologetically. A useful rhetoric to put under the carpet the real issues and impose a leak warrior before. ---- Portraits of terrorists or those party are trained in Syria in recent weeks in the press, show that there is not a single factor in these courses. Some are and some ex-offenders or offenders, past-es or not by the prison. Still others live in situations of precariousness and social exclusion, so that there are also individuals considered "integrated" among terrorists. ---- Despite these differences, which calls by reading the biographies of these gangsters is first the chaotic course of most of them and they. So-called "radicalization" trail mix often to crime course and marginalization, or enroll in precarious paths favorable to the adventurism of any kind. A melting pot of all that produced the French capitalist society as social fragilities or exclusions.

But the social conditions are not enough to explain the path that lead to terrorist violence. They are only ground on which grow the seeds of terrorism, whose growth depends on the concrete experiences in which individuals are immersed.

The experiences of dehumanization

What are the actual experiences leading individuals to commit such acts? This is first of the wars waged by the French Government in a number of countries and the rhetoric of the clash of civilizations that finds some resonance among vulnerable people, who leave and are built into the experience of war.

It is then religious indoctrination in meeting which, like any cult phenomenon, promises light in exchange for total submission. Religious ideology is a ferment in a powerful stigma context. But while attention is focused on this dimension it is worth emphasizing that religious radicalization does not necessarily lead to terrorism and that it can do without. This radicalization is often a secondary pretext in terrorist course.

Finally, another important element, not least of which is the same product security policies. Indeed, a significant part of radicalization courses were built in connection with the prison experience, which is primarily a dehumanizing experience in which jihadism becomes a way of upgrading. While it is relatively quiet, proselytization of radical Islamism and warrior performs a social function in jail. People say "radicalized" in prison are often those who find themselves in a prison environment disaffiliated organized in a "professional" and hierarchy based on a scale of manhood. In this universe, the prisoners who "radicalized" are often those who find themselves excluded from the prison order, too timid, not part of good bands (for living outside major urban peripheries).

Therefore, you can expect that the "solutions" proposed by politicians, that is to say more war and more prison are solutions firefighters and arsonists revert to reinforce the vicious circle.
