The fact that muslims that are among the affluent in the west, doctors and other professionals have participated in terror attacks citing koran and hadis defeat the argument that it is poverty and illiteracy which breed muslim violence.

Any ideology that manufactures hate the way islam (koran and hadis) manufactures hate towards non muslims can and will be used to justify violence. The problem indeed is with islam. Let us face and accept this reality.
