Brotherhood put lost boy Neil Prakash on path to jihad

The day Australia’s most wanted terrorist became a Muslim he knew almost nothing about Islam. Neil Prakash neither read nor spoke Arabic. His understanding of the Koran was drawn from YouTube clips and a handful of conversations he’d had with a couple of friends.

Yet once he stood to recount the solemn lines of the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of belief, he was immediately embraced by his new brothers — the motley members of a fringe group known as Al Furqan

    The contrast to Judaism, which is extremely difficult to convert into and extremely easy to drop out of, is quite telling. Islam is about raising an army of young men. That’s all.
