Youth form radical creche

by Carly Crawford from the Herald Sun

Researcher Mustapha Kara-Ali says young people are being exposed to a warped view of Islam in mosques, Islamic centres and even in their living rooms. The former Howard government adviser on Islamic issues estimates up to 3000 Sydney youths are taking in dangerous Wahhabist thought, leaving them vulnerable to radical conversion. Focus group research and meetings suggested Melbourne and Sydney were fertile recruiting zones, Mr Kara-Ali said. "I am suspecting that Melbourne is the other hotspot with about 1000 to 2000 (at risk)," he said.
