Euro-radical Islam

Swung by a book store where I saw a Foreign Affairs article titled Europe's Angry Muslims. You can't read it online, but that's OK, the piece is mostly a hurried jumble of assertions. Instead, check out this report, Bearers of Global Jihad? Immigration and National Security after 9/11, which is clearly the source of the article in Foreign Affairs. I haven't read the whole ~150 pages, though I did jump down to the figures and data collection appendix. The point that I found unsurprising, though still concerning, is the prominence of Euro-Muslims in these jihadi movements (that is, second generation+). The unfortuante santorum of the Euro-Muslim cultural interface? Perhaps. So where's the clean-up crew?
