We need to protect our children from programming
"Conversion to Islam substantially increases the probability of a person's involvement in terrorism."And because it's certainly possible, that's why, as parents, we have to take care of and teach our children why they have to stay far away from Islamists just as much as cult leaders like David Koresh, Scientologists, neo-Nazis, or even Voodoo witch doctors.
Let's take the recent case involving Joel Henry Hinrichs III. While it's not clear to me just now if this was openly discussed, it's very likely that he was influenced by the 3-4 Pakistani students, at least one of whom he was sharing a room with, not just into converting to Islam, as the beard he grew implies, but also into committing an act of terrorism, as he attempted to do. And he also attended the local mosque in that area, which had been attended by Zacarias Moussaoui, one of the 9-11 hijackers.
More of an adult age was Muriel Degauque, the Belgian woman who blew herself up in Iraq. And also Richard Reed, the attempted shoe bomber, and John Mohammed, the serial sniper who murdered several people in Maryland and Virginia. A couple more examples of converts can be found here.
We who really love our relatives do indeed want to protect them from harm's way and the wrong crowd, which is why many parents with concern for their children's future try to protect them from being influenced by gangs or even drug addiction. And Islam too is something we've got to keep our loved ones from being influenced by, because what if they ended up becoming rapists, under the brainwashing of Sura 4:23-24? That's something we'd rather not have occuring either.
And that's why concerned parents would be strongly advised to pay careful attention to, and to teach and advise their children, about why they need to stay away from Islam.
