Poverty and terrorism


Al Qaeda itself avers that poverty does not a terrorist make. They seem to be experts in the terror line of work, so maybe we should  listen to them and end the clich of  poverty being the root cause of terror.
AL—QAEDA is secretly recruiting affluent, middle—class Muslims in British universities and colleges to carry out terrorist attacks in this country, leaked Whitehall documents reveal.

A network of 'extremist recruiters' is circulating on campuses targeting people with 'technical and professional qualifications', particularly engineering and IT degrees.

Yesterday it emerged that last week's London bombings were a sophisticated attack with all the devices detonating on the Underground within 50 seconds of each other. The police believe those behind the outrage may be home—grown British terrorists with no criminal backgrounds and possessing technical expertise.
