Britain's home-grown terrorists (letter)by Alan W. CreekNews Weekly

Dermott Kelly asks why do home-grown Muslim terrorists occur in Britain (Letters, News Weekly
, July 8, 2006).
The answer is quite simple. First, the male establishes himself with a job and accommodation. He then, through family members back home, arranges for a prospective wife (usually a cousin) to come out.
The wife stays at home (while he goes to work and does the shopping, etc.) and she makes no attempt to learn English. The children grow up with Arabic, etc., as their first language and therefore do very poorly at school.
They leave school early with no qualifications or language skills and are virtually unemployable and, as such, are fertile soil for Muslim extremism.Alan W. Creek,
