Education and Poverty do not adequately explain the growth of Terrorism. While Terrorism through the ages was associated with Political demands, the current Terrorism is strictly Religion based with followers wanting to use religion by injecting it into Politics and the political structure. The demands of this kind of Terrorism is that it impinges and infringes on the Civil and Human Rights of the population and like a Cancer destroys society, taking a heavy toll on innocent lives in the process. The use of Religion as a tool to try and control people, stop their empowerment and use it for Power grab is dangerous. It is dangerous because it acts as an opiate to create illusion and delusion and derail the process of rational thinking.
