The sidewalks where terror breeds

This Christian Science Monitor article is extremely informative. It discusses radical British Muslims, how they become radical and what they think of terror and jihad. Frightening.

The preacher, who calls himself Abu Osama ('Father of Osama'), is one of a new breed of British radicals thriving at the margins of London's Muslim community. Young, independent, and streetwise, they are preaching in urban slang outside the confines of Britain's mosques. They are helping teens and 20-somethings beat drugs and alcohol. And they are inspiring a new pool of impressionable young Muslims to consider killing their fellow Britons. These radical bands constitute a small fraction of London's 1 million Muslims. But their freewheeling ideology - hardened in the jihadi echo chambers of cliques like Abu Osama's - is creating a new subculture within Britain's Islamic community. So far, the growing influence of these informal, maverick groups has gone largely undetected - and unchecked.
Read the whole thing. While there are individuals like this in the U.S., they are not nearly as prevalent as in Briton. Of course we have a smaller percentage of Muslims to begin with, but more importantly we have succeeded in integrating people better than most of the European nations. Still, it doesn't take to many to cause serious problems, especially if they can link up with an organization that can provide technical expertise.

interesting...I always thought these kinds of radical circles were more prevalent in the U.S. then Britain. But your post illustrates the support radical Islam is gaining in Europe. Something in me tells me "serves the bastards well!" but as a human first and Jew second,I'm very sorry this is going on and as a result civilians are getting hurt.
