Aïcha El-Wafi, Zacarias Moussaoui's mother, makes an interesting point in laying blame for her sons radicalization:
El-Wafi says the British government is partly to blame for what happened to her son. She claims he was a vulnerable man who was embittered by racism when he arrived in London and was indoctrinated by Abu Hamza and radical preachers at the Finsbury Park mosque.

"I went to see Abu Hamza myself. I wanted to understand him, to understand what had gone on. He was a monster. I have never met anyone who preached such hatred. It is him that has destroyed the youth of Europe. The British sentenced him to seven years in prison, but how many children are dead or in prison now because of him? He was their master, he was their teacher. England must bear its part of the guilt because that country allowed Hamza to preach this hatred."
She's right, you know.
