Have a look at this chart on how older vs. younger Muslims in Britain view Islamic issues.
I’m not sure exactly how British generational dynamics map onto the US model or how religious cultural issues complicate things, but to the extent that there’s some parallel to America that’s not just young people – those are Millennials. And if you study that cohort as much as I have, this is exactly – exactly – what you’d expect. More conventional. More drawn to easy answers. Less prone to (or capable of) critical thinking. And so on.
I’d love to hope that the UK challenge – especially with this demographic – was different, but evidently not.
