It's not religion, culture or ideology... just unemployment and poverty.

From The Real Global Virus: The plague of Islamism keeps on spreading, Victor Davis Hanson in National Review Online:

[T]he world—if it is to save its present liberal system of free trade, safe travel, easy and unfettered communications, and growing commitment to constitutional government—must begin seeing radical Islamism as a universal pathology rather than reactions to regional grievances, if it is ever to destroy it materially and refute it ideologically.
