There is a growing gap between Saudi’s large youth population and the aging monarchs. The majority of the population is under thirty and the youth culture has changed radically under the influence of satellite TV, the internet and social media. Young people are longing for more freedom, especially for women, and do not want to be restricted by the religious police. There is also a considerable degree of youth unemployment which leads to widespread social discontent. These factors could drive young people toward radical Islam. On the other hand, social discontent is not new and has been bought off with large sums of money in the form of allocations. Social dissatisfaction has been there for at least twenty years, including the civil disobedience of for instance women driving. Moreover, the internet revolution has also reached Islamic leaders: several imams have twitter accounts and are being followed by many. The number of Christian converts from Islam and other religions is increasing, along with their boldness in sharing their new faith.
