-Government Research: No Clue Why Folks Become Terrorists?

by Dr. D ~ March 30th, 2016

?s $Economic? Cultural? Socio/Psycho? Education?

 The Obama administration has spent millions on research trying to determine why folks become terrorists. All sorts of cultural and economic reasons along with sociological and psychological factors have been put forth as possible causes but each one has ended up being discounted. Here’s a link to a New York Times article claiming that the government has no clue what causes folks to become terrorists:

What turns people toward violence — and whether they can be steered away from it — are questions that have bedeviled governments around the world for generations. Those questions have taken on fresh urgency with the rise of the Islamic State and the string of attacks in Europe and the United States. Despite millions of dollars of government-sponsored research, and a much-publicized White House pledge to find answers, there is still nothing close to a consensus on why someone becomes a terrorist.

After all this funding and this flurry of publications, with each new terrorist incident we realize that we are no closer to answering our original question about what leads people to turn to political violence,”

Marc Sageman, a psychologist and a longtime government consultant, wrote in the journal Terrorism and Political Violence in 2014.

The same worn-out questions are raised over and over again, and we still have no compelling answers.”

Response: Really, they have no clue?

Interestingly religion does not seem to be part of the research. Yet most of the terrorists currently plaguing the West and around the world say that they are motivated by their understanding of Islam and the Quran. Meanwhile the Obama administration is going out of its way to find possible alternative factors that are the ‘real’ causes for terrorism which do not include the ‘Religion of Peace.’

The researchers have been frustrated because many of the socio/economic/psychological/cultural factors might apply to the few leftist radicals and right-wing militia types but fail to explain the largest percentage of terrorists who are Muslim. Nor does any of the research explain why radical Islamic terrorist groups like ISIS are supported by more than 80% of the Muslim population in the Middle East and in North Africa.               *Top
