Directors Maajid Nawaz and Ed Husain met with terrorism expert Marc Sageman and the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) Intel division on 17th September 2008.

 

The meeting was a thorough and frank exchange of ideas. Some high priority issues were identified:

 

1) The nature of Jihadism’s relationship to Wahhabism and Islamism.

 

2) The need for a survey of the differences between UK Muslim communities and US Muslim communities.

 

3) The nature of governmental engagement with Islamists, and legal versus civil remedies.
