Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is the same age as those on the streets of Tehran. He comes from a privileged, indeed spoilt, background, as do they. And he appears to have been "radicalised", just as they have been. Why is this "radicalised" rich boy so much less acceptable than the others? And has anyone bothered to check by whom - which is to say, to what end - the other rich boys and girls have been "radicalised"?
