Does this estimate include the young Islamists?

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists

Submitted by TruthAloneTriumphs (India), Oct 9, 2008 at 00:10

Well, this seems to be a very conservative estimate. There is a huge number of radicalized youngsters from diverse countries like central Asian former soviet republics, north African republics, middle east, south Asian islands who although seek education in modern/ western university tradition, but have an irrational rabid anti-US, anti-Israel, anti-democracy, anti-secularism worldviews. They don't read books other than Koran & Islamic history; they idolize the return of Islamic Caliphate and are full of delusion about the righteousness and truth of their religion, its contribution to scientific & technological innovations.

These misguided brainwashed people are also willing to fight & kill for the sake of their religion. Their stupidity is only matched by their enthusiasm to project false notions of Islam. The growing number of videos glorifying Caliphate, Pan–Islamism, Jihad, Mujahedin, Conversion, Nazis, hate speech fraudulent miracles of Koran, Terror bombings etc…on You Tube is a testimony to this fact.

I would request Dr. Daniel pipes to take some time to view/research extensively about these videos & viewer comments/responses and write a piece on how the battle of Al-Taqeya is being waged through misinformation propaganda on You Tube. This will not only give remarkable insights about changing perceptions and radicalization among youth, but also serve as timely reminder on vigilance about an insidious adversary.
