Good Terrorist, The

A former Islamic fundamentalist changes from a hateful and spiteful jihadist to a free citizen who renounces violence.

Eight days after the gruesome murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, the Netherlands witnessed a failed terror attack by Islamic fundamentalists. Jason Walters and Ismael Aknikh were arrested by Dutch Special Police after a 14-day siege of their flat. Jason was sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment at the Terrorist Unit prison in Vught, but over this period underwent a transformation from hateful jihadist into a man of peace.
