Blankely on Islam

WaTi is excerpting Tony Blankley's new book on Islam this week. In this morning's part one, he compares Islamist tactics to Nazi tactics in the 30s, and has some recommendations for Europe. Here's an interesting point I'd never considered: the bin Ladens of the world, in order to recruit, focus on driving a wedge between young people and their parents.
Just as the Nazis reached back to German mythology and the supposed Aryan origins of the German people, the radical Islamists reach back to the founding ideas and myths of their religious culture. And just like the Nazis, they claim to speak for authentic traditions while actually advancing expedient and radical innovations. The Islamo-fascist mullahs encourage young Muslims not to turn to their parents for guidance on choosing a wife (or wives). Nor are young Muslims to be guided by parental or community disapproval of making an individual commitment to jihad. They are allowed to drink alcohol, shave their beards and commit what otherwise would be judged immorality in a Muslim -- in order to advance jihad.
