The future lies with the children

One of the disheartening trends is the embrace of jihadism by the children of secular (lax or lapsed) Muslims. Here are a few articles: ”New York girl” ”He loved America?” ”Moderate Balkans”

Robert Spencer constantly finds examples of nominal Muslims who, in times of crisis, seek guidance from their religion. What they find is a militant religion that blames others for their plight. Some explain this moment of crisis differently.

We need to ask ourselves: is moderate Islam the solution or merely a phrase that blinds us to the continued problem? If moderate Islam is merely the abandonment of Islam, showing continued respect for the religion will encourage young Muslims to return and discover the true religion.
