I think the major reason for terrorism is the disefranchisement of many person from the political system.Many persons feel that they exist outside of the system and consequently this is how they register their dissatisfaction . In the case of terrorism in the middle east the terrorism is unique .This is a case of two governments attacking each other because they believe that each is occupying territory that they believe is religiously significant to them.This is how they believe they are being oppressed In the case of terrorism against America ,persons in the middle east are registering their disgust with americas involvement in the middle east.there is also a religiuos component to it.Many are annoyed at the fact that America ,a christian sate is getting involved in Islamic sates in the middle east

I think that lack of proper education is a part of increasing terrorism - people live in a narrow-minded state of perception because they do not receive proper education about individuality, about human rights - they do not grow and mature into people who sympathize and empathize and end up blinded by their own loss and hatred. The solution would probably by proper instruction/education - so they can learn to think for themselves and not follow in blind faith the people who live in hatred. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

sorry. i dono't think any of the reason you listed in your question is the real resource of the terrorism. the poorest people i think is the person lived in some of the Africa contries. But have you ever heard any terrorism attack was launched by these poor people? Politic or religion is the true reason of the terrorism indeed, i think. you can find the shadow of religion in 911 and you can find the politic shadow in the Mumbai attack. if the barrier between the diffrent religions have not been moved or if the greedy politicians have not been vanished, i don't think the terrorism will dispered.
