Let´s hope that the families of these young men can turn this tragedy into something positive that can hopefully prevent other young men to fall into the same trap. They can start by stop revolving their lives around Saudi funded mosques and focusing on opooling their resources to create secular youth programmes that can address the needs of their youth and help them do better in society. I also hope that lazy parents stop using the masjid and dugsis as a baby sitter, the masjids these days are obviousy not better than street gangs...

Hi INSEARCH

Mate, that is wishfull thinking because I just found out that here in Melbourne these same Wahabi sheikhs have succeeded in obtaining public funding through the backdoor by the pretence of teaching Somali children their mother tongue, the Somali Language. The madrasas has been re-named Somali Community Schools where children as young as 5 years old are taught to memorise the koran and learn the intrepretation of the Wahabi sect on a daily basis. As soon as these kids finish their schooling and instead of completing their homework and getting someone to help them with it, they are crammed into the family car and shuttled to the madrasa aka Community School and will spend there till 8.30 p.m on a daiy basis. How could these kids succeed or, focus with their education when their daily routine involves 11 & 1/2 hours of studying? It borders to child cruelty.

Well, well, well. Look who came out of hiding. The soon to be ex-muslima herself.
You used to hide your hatred for Islam by masking it as hatred for arabs and arab culture. Nowadays you don´t seem to bother.
What do you mean by "secular" youth programs? Are you suggesting that Islam itself is failing these kids? You basically want to de-islamize Somali youth by introducing them to godlessness. You really have issues with religion, especially with Islam. There´s no greater ugliness than a Somali who has become gaal.

@ Nasro, the article is about the Somalis in Minnesota whose sons, newphews, siblings and friends were recruited to join Al Shabaab in Somalia. Do you have any opinions about the subject or any ideas on how to prevent other youngsters from falling into the same trap? Stick to the topic, because the supposed apostacy of a random poster (me) whom you´ve never met isn´t relevant to you in anyway.

@ Sheikh Voodoo: Similar trends are visible here as well and the results manifest themselves in poor academic performance. You see kids who can recite long passages of the Quran by heart, and still struggling with 5th grade at the age of 15. The parents start panicking 1/2 way through the 8th grade, when they realize that their kid won´t graduate elementary school.
