On Dangerous Ground

The ABC’s Four Corners screened a documentary called Dangerous Ground last night on young Muslims which, like pretty much every other documentary on young Muslims, focused on the range of social problems and issues that a particular demographic of Muslim “yoof” in Sydney face. As per usual, a warning was issued by one of the Muslim social workers that if “something” isn’t done, “you’re going to see a generation of young people who have so much hatred and so much anger and so much frustration within them – and when that happens you’re on basically dangerous grounds..”

It’s the old ticking time bomb thesis as discussed by Baybers in his seminal post on the subject.

The documentary can be viewed online at the ABC site.
