How `jihadization' of younger Muslims in the West is increasing

Two items today for your attention, Joshua's Army members. They both essentially corroborate the increasing radicalization of Muslims in dar harb.

The first one comes from Canada, where Canada's Canada's intelligence service came out with a study that concludes that the jihadization of Muslim youth in Canada is a 'rapid process'.

This study, released under Canada's Access to Information Act, was done by the CSIS in an attempt by the Canadian government to understand why and how some Canadian Muslims became involved in terrorist plots.

The study concluded that younger Muslims are being radicalized by what it referred to as `extremist preachers' who are focusing on a Western 'war on Islam'.

The report notes that younger jihadists are now often getting their inspiration online from spiritual leaders who are "available 24/7. The transformation from radical to jihadist can be a very rapid process."

At the other end of the pond, a study found that younger British Muslims are far more likely to hold radical, pro jihad views than their parents or grandparents .

The study found that 40 per cent of Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24 want to live in Britain under sharia law, compared to about 17 per cent of those Muslims aged 55 and over. Which means that they favor legally mandated discrimination against women, homosexuals and non-Muslims, and dominance in society by Muslims.

The survey, carried out by what the BBC refers to as `the centre-right Policy Exchange' of over 1,000 Muslims from different age groups in the UK also found that:

* 71% of over-55s compared with 62% of 16 to 24-year-olds feel they have as much, if not more, in common with non-Muslims in Britain than with Muslims abroad

* 19% of over-55s compared with 37% of 16 to 24-year-olds would prefer to send their children to Islamic state schools

* 28% of over-55s compared with 74% of 16 to 24-year-olds prefer Muslim women to choose to wear the hijab

* 3% of over-55s compared with 13% of 16 to 24-year-olds admire organisations like al-Qaeda that are prepared to fight the West

If any Americans feel that this is merely a problem for Canadians and Europeans, take a peak sometime at what the Saudis are teaching here in our own back yard at the mosques and madrassahs they fund and control.
