Meanwhile, somewhere in the UK, another jihadist is born. I documented the birth of one particular jihadist in my BBC3 film My Brother the Islamist . The film charted my attempts to reconnect with Rich, who happened to be my stepbrother, to try to understand the new world he had become a part of. Ultimately the shared journey drew us closer together, but a year later he would be arrested for attempting to join the Taliban in Pakistan ...

The idea that violence is gender-based is widely held, but sadly female pacifism is just another myth Just six months ago, counterterrorism officials announced their next initiative for preventing young Britons enlisting to fight in Syria: recruiting Muslim women as amateur detectives. At this point, it was estimated, between 200 and 366 British nationals had volunteered for Islamist duties.
