Incorrect. Pakistani students tend to be "jack Muslims." The parties are lavish, with lots of booze. All nighters. Lots of Euro and Paki trance tunes. And yet, even with all those seemingly secular traits, there is an element among them who are very receptive to the more radical elements in the ISI and receptive to OBL's Fatwas. Pakistani society is - in a word - bizarre. By the time I went to my first such event, I was already engaged and in my thirties. But at such events, I could clearly see how a much younger, unattached, disturbed, American kid who felt an outsider from mainstream American society could get a whole lot more into it than going to an occasional party. For example, perhaps spending lots of time within the Pakistani clique. Going along with to the mosque. Come Ramidan, maybe a complete loss of all remaining connection to Western culture. Did this perp go through last year's Ramidan as a devout Muslim? This question must be answered.
Another thing to clear confusion. Many of the muslims I know do drink and party. But they also get quite serious about Ramidan. It is bizarre. It also points out the raft of lies that seems to accompany the whole thing. From what I can see, the typical muslim is sort of bipolar. When they are in party mode, you practically forget they are a muslim. When they go into Mecca mode, a whole other personality steps to the fore. Note how Atta and company went out drinking and to strip joints.
