The Latest Excuse for Jihadist Antics (So That No One Actually Has to Use the Word "Jihad")

"Teen immigrant angst".

Update: Speaking of angst, both teenaged and older, Bruce Bawer writes about how they're dealing with it in Norway:
It just keeps coming, the propaganda. A new wave every day. Poured out by ideologues determined to flood the truth – to drown it out – in wave after wave of lies.  
“Norway isn’t becoming less Norwegian because it’s changing,” a  man named Salimi cheerfully reassured Aftenposten the other day. Salimi – who came to Norway 37 years ago and was in on the founding of SOS Racism, the Anti-Racist Center, and various other enterprises and activities, including a well-known annual food festival in Oslo – described today’s Norway with enthusiasm as a place where immigrants and natives are gradually and peacefully adapting to one another, each embracing the new and mysterious aspects of each other’s cultures. Although “extremist Islam and Islamophobia” represent threats to these marvelous developments, noble and well-meaning Muslims, Christians, and Jews, working together on the basis of “shared universal values,” are striving with increasing success to forge a harmonious multicultural society founded on mutual respect and acceptance.
Blah, blah, blah. 
"Shared universal values"--sounds like something Insp. Ricky Veerappan of the York Regional Police's "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Bureau" might have said.

Of course, what is happening in Norway is not _sui generis_. It is happening all over the West, though the ethnicities involved differ from place to place. Our governing classes everywhere have convinced themselves--wrongly, in my opinion, though that does not make things better for us peasants--that they'll be able to control the "vibrant" ethnic or racial minorities (for now) that they are importing and/or empowering.

They should all watch the beer garden scene from _Cabaret_ before they proceed any farther in their project to "elect a new people" . . . though, come to think of it, they are so self-deluded, either because of ideological zealotry or plain old venality, that they won't think it has anything to do with _them_.

All that multicultural/diversity crap is part and parcel of Western decadence/civilizational ennui. In that sense, it is a lot like the Weimar decadence one can see in Cabaret, the rot that gave rise to to Hitlerjungend singing "Tomorrow Belongs To Me."
