The town of Dewsbury in West Yorkshire is punching above its weight when it comes to producing Jihadists:
Set in a quiet corner of West Yorkshire, on first glance the former mill town of Dewsbury looks perfectly innocent.
But bubbling away under the surface of the thriving community is a deep-rooted problem with hardline Islamic extremism.
Home to Talha Asmal – the 17-year-old boy believed to be Britain’s youngest suicide bomber – Dewsbury is also where two of Britain’s 7/7 bombers lived, including the man who masterminded the attack, Mohammad Sidique Khan.
7/7 refers to the July 7, 2005 subway bombings in London that killed 52 civilians.
Of course, the shocking thing about this story is just how unshocking it’s become. Is anyone surprised anymore when some small UK village hosts its own hardened jihad cell? It’s simply the reality of modern Britain.
