BusinessWeek offers this interesting take on the social condition of the Muslim youth in Britain. According to the article, "with Muslims underrepresented in politics and with few role models in wider British society to follow, some young Muslims are doubtless alienated. At a time when overall British unemployment has been the lowest in decades at about 5%, joblessness... among Muslim youths is 22%. British Muslims also rank at the bottom of the tables in school degrees, quality of housing, and other indicators." One Muslim argues, "They are alienated: They don't know how to socialize." On the other hand, a successful Muslim businessman notes, "I don't recall anyone asking me about religion. That is how insignificant it is."
