Speculation is circulating in Germany that “Muslim youth are a ‘ticking timebomb’ of radicalism,” and for good reason:
A survey of schools in the German region of Lower Saxony has shown that close to 10 per cent of Muslim students have direct sympathies for radical Islamic groups like Islamic State and some even support acts of terrorism. One in three of the Muslim students who responded to the survey said that they would be willing to fight and die for Islam.
This should not be a surprise, as it indicates an Islamic doctrinal link with jihad terror. The Muslim students who possess jihadi sympathies are conditioned from home and mosques to “die for Islam.”
In November, a surprise announcement by Sheikh Nahjan Mubarak al Nahjan, the minister for tolerance in the United Arab Emirates, came that “inadequate surveillance of mosques has led to Islamist terrorism in Germany.”
He added that the problem existed in Germany, France and the United Kingdom, arguing that Muslims were becoming radicalized in mosques where the authorities were not exerting strong enough control.
Monitoring of mosques is long overdue, but to suggest it in the West, as I did in My Warning to Icelanders, renders one “Islamophobic” in the eyes of social justice warriors and Islamic supremacist pressure groups such as CAIR and its affiliates. I branded with this term in Canada by CAIR-CAN (now renamed the National Council of Canadian Muslims), and then thrown out of the Canadian government for my writings about political Islam.
CAIR has been designated a terror group by the United Arab Emirates and an unindicted co-conspirator to terrorist financing in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, the largest terrorism financing trial in American history. That does not seem to be enough to raise eyebrows in the West. It is perplexing that CAIR and other established Islamic supremacy groups remain “go-to” groups in multicultural dialogue sessions, when they should be outlawed. Such groups cover for jihad-preaching mosques and other jihadi misdeeds by exploiting a victimhood narrative under a banner of “racism,” and Western non-Muslims go along to get along.
Stopping the spread of the jihad ideology should not be a complicated matter on Western soil, but due to high-pressure multicultural groups that have hijacked the “diversity” discourse, Western society is losing its way, and its freedoms.
Also among Muslim students in Germany:
Twenty-seven per cent said they agreed with the statement: “The Islamic laws of Sharia, according to which, for example, adultery or homosexuality are severely punished, are much better than the German laws
“Survey: Underlying Sympathy for Radical Islamic Extremism in German Schools,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, January 11, 2018:
A survey of schools in the German region of Lower Saxony has shown that close to 10 per cent of Muslim students have direct sympathies for radical Islamic groups like Islamic State and some even support acts of terrorism.
One in three of the Muslim students who responded to the survey said that they would be willing to fight and die for Islam.
Twenty-seven per cent said they agreed with the statement: “The Islamic laws of Sharia, according to which, for example, adultery or homosexuality are severely punished, are much better than the German laws,” Die Welt reports.
Eight per cent said they agreed with the creation of an Islamic empire or caliphate in the Middle East through the use of force. A further 3.8 per cent said they agreed that sometimes it was justified for Muslims to engage in acts of terrorism to further their goals.
A fifth of the Muslim students agreed that Muslims are oppressed all over the world and they have to defend themselves by force, and 18.6 per cent said that it was the duty of Muslims to spread Islam and “fight unbelievers”.
The results come from a study conducted in 2015 that had previously not been made public. Criminologist Christian Pfeiffer made the data public as part of his own study into the cause of immigrant crime. The authors of the original study point out that only 280 Muslim students answered the survey but added that the results were noteworthy.
Previous studies of young Muslims have shown similar results and attitudes leading some to speculate that Muslim youth are a “ticking timebomb” of radicalism.
Young Muslims have been shown to be extremely open to extremist ideas in recent years with many notable cases of underage Muslims travelling to the Middle East to join the Islamic State or conducting terror attacks in Germany.
In some cases, the underage Muslims are asylum seekers like in the case of the failed bombing of a music festival in Ansbach in 2016.
