Why Westernized Muslims Become ‘Radicalized’

A new Danish statistical study finds that “Muslims [are] 218 percent more criminal in second generation than first.” While some of these crimes are clearly related to Islam – such as attackson Muslim apostates to Christianity – others, such as rampant theft against non-Muslims, would appear banal, until one realizes that even robbery and plunder are justified by Islamic doctrine– as one U.K. Muslim cleric onceclearly said.

The interesting question here is why second-generation Muslims, who are presumably more Westernized than their Muslim parents, are also more “radical.” Lest one dismiss this phenomenon as a product of economics or some other “grievance” against European host nations, the fact is, even in America, where Muslims are much better assimilated than in Europe, young Muslims are turning to “radicalism.”
