Event Report - ‘La Route du Levant’ – The view from a Jihadist’s Eyes Posted on

In cooperation with Eurobabble

It was an unusual atmosphere in the European Parliament, as two sombre-faced actors marched to the front of a conference room to give an intimate, intense and haunting performance: “La Route du Levant” (“The Route from the Levant”) which has been touring Belgium for some months now. With a name that has Old Testament vibes, it may come as a surprise that Swiss writer Dominique Ziegler  plunges us into a police station interrogation room, where a heated discussion unfolds between a young Muslim convert-turned-Jihadist and a despairing inspector, attempting to dissect this young man’s true motivations.
