Islamic Terrorist Come From Anywhere

A report by Manchester University found that "terrorist hotbeds" in the UK do not exist. In their study they found that Muslim terrorists are as likely to come from areas with small Muslim populations as large ones. The report says:

The assumption that 'Muslim terrorists' are most likely to reside in places with high proportions of Muslims is unfounded and should not be used to inform debate or strategies to tackle terrorism.
What this really means, is that radicalisation of Muslims is not a localised problem, but it something that is going on anywhere where there are Muslim people living. Essentially, what the report says is that those attempting to radicalise Muslim youth can do so anywhere, and are doing so anywhere. Just remember the cyber Mosque and Omar Bakri's internet recruitment.
