The only thing he gets right is the civil war part of it…..
This line of thinking has been debunked time and again, that jihadis, or those who turn to it, are nothing more than marginalized, out of work normal folks who if only they had been employed, would never have turned to a life of jihad. BS.

A scholar of Islam has warned of civil war across Europe as more young Muslims facing poor job prospects turn to radical groups, it has been reported.
Professor Gilles Kepel, from the Sciences Po in Paris, France, said a growing ‘Jihad Generation’ is likely to continue to carry out terror acts in European cities.
The aim of their terror activity is to both incite hatred towards Muslims and, in doing so, cause further radicalisation among young people, the professor of political science said.
He told the German newspaper Die Welt that this in turn could lead to the point where Europe enters into civil war.
Kepel said the recent terror attacks across the continent were part of a war within Islam rather than between Islam and Western civilization.
The extremists, he said, also want to crush more moderate Islamic opposition.
