Engineers & Jihadis / Results: New Zealand’s Flag

Interesting analysis on why so many Middle Eastern jihadis are trained as various kinds of engineers. This is long a correlation that has raised questions over radicalization pipelines, and this is an compelling possible theory explaining the relationship.


Unfortunately for those of us who have been following the drama (and like the new flag design), the people of New Zealand have voted against changing their flag. Polling data suggests that the result is not necessarily a rejection of the design itself, nor a rejection of the idea of changing the flag, but rather a rejection of the expensive and seemingly superficial campaign to do so. Perhaps that leaves hope for the future?
