The tiny nation of Morocco produces too many suicide bombers for its size. Its government launched an unusual program to train women, instead of men, to attack the problem.
The link explains that Muslim women have access to family discussions more freely than Muslim men. If a mother, for example, thinks her son is slipping into fundamentalist thinking she can contact one of the women from this program. The women go into the home and discuss Islam with the son.
Candidates for training in this program must have memorized half of the Koran to be accepted. There are several times as many women who apply for the training than are accepted.
When we think of “Muslim countries” we do not think of governments who would fund such an anti extremist program. But, the government or Morocco is paying for women to have this training.
Conservative branches of the faith teach that to be a good Muslim, one needs to fight its enemies. The women in the program point to passages in the Koran that make this directive at least questionable if not false.
Like parts of Christianity, part of Islam teaches that only men are qualified to preach and teach the faith. This can place a barrier to these women entering the homes of problematic families. The Koran teachers need to be tenacious.
Many other governments approach the problem as one of law enforcement. While law enforcement plays a role persuasion at the community level can be important as well.
