Man’s search for meaning and the roots of terrorism by Stuart Chesner, The Times of Israel, January 26, 2016

Terror is somewhat correlated with poverty, however many terrorists are products of middle class educated families.

[….] Many terrorists are religious, however here too we err if we assume that religion is the cause of terrorism. I suggest that the underlying cause of terrorism is an educational/ideological system that glorifies murder as the ultimate expression of human meaning.

Israel has weathered longer and harsher waves of terrorism. Israeli leaders must keep things in proportion, and reject calls for “massive retaliation” that will not truly improve security and could make things worse.
