You’re not going to believe the amount of French Muslim youth that are supportive of suicide bombers. Does this worry you in any way?
The Jewish Press reported that suicide bombing, which it called “probably the most extreme act of terrorism” and compared to the Japanese Kamikaze pilots who crashed their bomb-laden planes into enemy ships in a last-ditch effort to stave off defeat in WWII, is supported by a whopping 42 percent of French Muslim youth.
It drew its data from a November, 2015 Pew Poll that concluded that, although France had the highest percentage of Muslims under the age of 30 that are “consistently the least likely to say that suicide bombing is never justified,” numbers among Muslim youth in the United States aren’t all that much better, at 26 percent.
“In other words, the share who think suicide bombing against civilians can ever be justified, even if rarely, is higher among those younger than 30 compared with those who are older. About a quarter (26%) of younger US Muslims say suicide bombing can at least rarely be justified, 17 percentage points higher than the proportion of Muslims ages 30 and older (9%) who share that view. The age gap is about as wide in Great Britain (18 percentage points) but somewhat narrower in Germany (12 points), France (11 points) and Spain (7 points).”
