Poverty one of the biggest contributors.

Reader comment on item: God and Mammon

Poverty is not the only reason why some religious scholors can so easily brainwash young Muslim youth against west, however we must not deny that it no doubt is one of the biggest contributors to international terrorism. I totally disagree with this Hindus' (Bharti) comments, who has commented above, that power is only motivator for Muslim youth to turn to voilence and militancy. I don't agree with this Iranian guy with masters' degree either. Why mention your Master's degree here Sir. Are you looking for a job as spy in CIA against Iran or something. Well you might then want to contact them directly instead of posting your resume on this site?

People who want to see an end to terrorism (especially Christians) should be very careful in selecting their partners when dealing with war on terrorisom - not accepting anyone as their partners and friends - persons/state who are conducting attoricities against Muslims Partnering with Hindus who are conduting attrocities on Muslims in India (killing them with knives for decades now and Indian controlled media doesn't even allow international press in some areas) and a few Iranian Muslims (who are lured by western lifestyle and would do anything to succeed in west) will infact hurt their genuine cause. No genuine Muslim will favor killing of innocent people but neither do they support killng innocent Muslim by HIndus in India.
