<p style=”margin-bottom: .0001pt; line-height: normal;”>Economical situation plays a huge role in radicalisation and integration. If the politicians do not create legit and legal ways to accommodate to the need of the market and the new migrants, the new migrants would find illegal ways, and sometimes harming and dangerous, to make some money to stay alive. We do need more discussions among different ethnicities and religions but those things should also be guided and supervised by experts who could provide mentoring and advise to the troubled young.</p>

<p style=”margin-bottom: .0001pt; line-height: normal;”>Finding more experts who have real-life experience in the mental health. Amal does not have any experience and Eulaila has had a couple of years of practice in the field. I did feel that Amal&rsquo;s presentation was one-sided and bias presentation (and I wasn&rsquo;t alone in thinking so) as she blamed everything on the locals or government and simply making things white and black, while things are much more complicated in real life. We should also be more careful how we address people when we give examples, I think saying &ldquo; Tholani just because he&rsquo;s black and fat does not mean he is criminal&rdquo; is very offensive and inappropriate to say. The same way about Rahim when he was told &ldquo; You&rsquo;re not a terrorist just because you&rsquo;re a muslim&rdquo;. And I was not the only one who felt that this was not appropriate at all.</p>
<p style=”margin-bottom: .0001pt; line-height: normal;”>I think the Imam was somehow trying to spread his views of Islam instead of telling us of how people integrate in Italy. I would have loved to hear his story living here and learning and mingling with the community instead of hearing his views. But on the other hand, how can someone talk about being inclusive and accepting of other religions when he does not consider Shia as Muslims? I think his views were very basic and childish and out-dated and did not expect such strong opinions from someone who&rsquo;s been living in Europe for 26 years.</p>

<p style=”margin-bottom: .0001pt; line-height: normal;”>I think showcasing the migrants to a huge group of participants from the UK was a bit inappropriate and in a way humiliating. It reminded me when I was in Turkey and a group of journalists come and take photos and videos and talk to us. I would definitely drop the port visit and double check why it was OK to take photos and videos of minors?</p>
