Well, duh. This is islam we are talking about, after all. What with shariah law and the 7th century mentality, why wouldn’t they choose jihad, beliving they get to bang 72 virgins and 28 prepubescent boys in the afterlife?
Extremists are winning the battle for the hearts and minds of Britain’s young Muslims, a disturbing police report warns.
Increasing numbers have become so alienated from mainstream society that they could even lend their support to jihadi terrorism, the study claims.
While most reject violence, many distrust police and are reluctant to inform on extremists.
The report was commissioned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) after last year’s failed bomb attacks in London’s West End and at Glasgow Airport. It is to be discussed at Acpo’s annual conference this week.
In the most comprehensive research of its kind to date, Prof Martin Innes, of the Universities’ Police Science Institute in Cardiff, led a team of researchers which carried out face-to-face and telephone interviews with more than 600 Muslims in London, Birmingham and Oldham.
They found that the radicalisation of young British Muslims was more widespread than previously feared, with “a disturbing proportion” expressing support for extremist elements.
