in response to reader comment: Terrorism per capita

Terrorism is result of the fight between the rich and the poor...

When I first read this statement by Harrak, I assumed that he was reacting as a Muslim apologist. But after giving it some thought, I realized that he is on to something. You see, Osama bin Laden went to war against the Americans because he is, well very poor. After all he was only worth 300 million dollars when he began his war against civilization.

Now lets consider Muhammad Atta the Egyptian Muslim who led the 9/11 attack on New York. Again, as the brilliant strategist Harrak pointed out, it's a fight between the rich and the poor. He only had a degree in Architecture from a university in Egypt and was studying for a PHD in Urban Planning in Germany, and of course his father is a poor millionaire lawyer in Egypt. And 15 out of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from one of the poorest nations in the world, you guessed it, Saudi Arabia. Why many of the Saudis are only worth millions rather than billions of dollars. So now everyone should understand why there is so much conflict between Muslims and the rest of society; the poor Muslim millionaires are fighting for their fair share of the world's wealth.
