April 26, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): America’s ‘60 Minutes’ has been amongst the highly watched TV programs. Recently, it featured the previous chief of a fundamentalist Muslim organization in conversation with CBS reporter, Lesley Stahl. Like, most of the preceding episodes of the ‘60 minutes’, this episode also produced extensive viewership.

This episode of the news magazine had Lesley Stahl in discussion with the former member of the Muslim extremist group. His name is Maajid Nawaz. The formerly terrorist individual uttered that the most important reason behind the increase in home-produced ‘jihadis’ is the ‘narrative’. He went on to explicate that ‘the narrative’ brings to light the discernment that the United States is considered to be at war with Islam and its foremost assignment is the devastation of the Islamic religion.

He conversed about the incident where an American army major executed a shooting binge in Ft. Hood. He explained how these incidents help in catalyzing Muslim extremism.

The startlingly hefty numbers of Islamic radicals, who are comparatively well heeled and who are knowledgeable Westerners, are a bamboozling phenomenon for the intelligence agencies in America.

This episode of ’60 Minutes’ enabled the viewers to get a notion about what actually goes on in the minds of extremists, who have declared a war against the Western states in the name of Islam.
