Jihadis and all that

So Bob Rae described the PMO staff as "25-year-old jihadis":
"... this government just doesn't have the imagination, political will, or the willingness to let other people do things.
"If they can't control it, if the 25-year-old jihadis in the prime minister's office can't control it, it doesn't happen. and that's what's wrong about this government. That's the pathology I talked about two weeks ago, and that's the pathology that affects everything that moves in this government."
Hrumph, hrumph! Let the pearl-clutching begin about how extremely rude Rae is to call ideological, ignorant young people "jihadis".
Would the term "Hitler Youth" be more acceptable?
