They are assimilating the discourse from other sources. Mosques and religious leaders in particular have been closely associated with the rise in terrorism and methods of brainwashing. For instance, Kepel (2004b: 256) argues that ‘the first stage of brainwashing occurs at the hands of a pietistic salafist imam’. Similarly, Rashid (2005) claims that ‘the simple reason is the terrifying brainwashing suffered by most of the Arab youth at the hands of “religious clerics” and particularly at the hands of the extremists with backward views’.
