1. Thanks, watching it now.

we should Work more broadly to reduce civil conflict in the middle eastern and Islamic regions of the world. I can't emphasize enough how important instability is to an organization like Isis. You take away from instability, you take away sectarianism, you take away sub-state social tensions, and you're literally pulling the rug from under Isis's feet...and other Jihadi organizations.

We should encourage on an international and regional level, more dialogue and mediation and engagement between states who are currently fixed within a kind of detrimental sectarian dynamic, as hard as that might be.

Finally, we need to encourage, and this might be slightly controversial, we need to encourage a safe space within the middle easter region, but arguablly also in the west. We need to encourage a safer space for a healthy dynamic debate on sensitive issues. And by that, I/m kind of trying to imply that Islam as itself, or maybe even moderate forms of Islamism, could be a viable alternative to violent Islamism.
