Julia Kristeva: “how can anybody be jihadist?”

Fighting against radical evil entails not only the incarceration of jihadists – although this is a necessary response – or a social response – just as necessary – such as helping youths from these neighborhoods escape from poverty. The fight against radical evil requires even more that we be attentive to the adolescents’ diseases of ideality and unbinding and that we respond to their need to believe so that the seductiveness of religions will cease to be a threat to humanism.
