Our fifth graders are being taught outright lies. An award-winning teacher claims that poverty and overpopulation are 'root causes' of terrorism.
But in the world of Islamic extremism, they take a more realistic approach.
The first article is written by an American, about an American fifth grade teacher. The second comes from the major English language daily in the Middle East, written by a Muslim. Of course I agree with the Arab News when it comes to terror analysis?!
Root causes explanations for terror are absurd and scientifically unfounded. I posted two articles on this earlier. No scientific study links poverty to terrorism. Most of the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attackers were from privileged families. Osama Bin Laden is a very wealthy man. What you will find among terrorists is a belief in Salafi (Wahhabi) Islam, or another radical school.
