The lazy charge that "Islam appeals to poor youth" comes from some empirical study you have at your finger tips? I have known many Moslems and few of them were poor either as youths or as adults. The 9-11 hijackers were very well educated. The bankers son that attempted the Christmas Day ass bomb was not poor. People that don't agree with me are not stupid, poor and hopeless - they just don't agree with me.
