"Itsemurhapommittajien motiivina ”globaali paha”
Terrori-iskujen taustalla on harvoin selkeä poliittinen päämäärä. Tekoja ruokkivat ahdasmielinen yhteisö ja internet."

"The history of suicide bombings since the early 1980s demonstrates how
such attacks have generally achieved attackers’ near-term strategic goals, such as forcing withdrawal from areas subject to attack, causing destabilization, and demonstrating vulnerability by radically upsetting life routines. In Lebanon, Hizballah (Party of God) initiated the first systematic contemporary suicide attack campaign in 1983, killing hundreds of U.S. and French soldiers in coordinated truck bombings and compelling the United States and France to withdraw their remaining forces."
"In sum, there is no evidence that most people who support suicide actions hate Americans’ internal cultural freedoms, but rather every indication that they oppose U.S. foreign policies, particularly regarding the Middle East. After the 1996 suicide attack against U.S. military housing at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, a Defense Department Science Board report stated, “Historical data show a strong correlation between U.S. involvement in international situations and an increase in terrorist attacks against the United States.”24 U.S. intervention in Iraq is but the most recent example. A United Nations report indicated that, as soon as the United States began building up for the Iraq invasion, Al Qaeda recruitment picked up in 30–40 countries. 25 Recruiters for groups sponsoring terrorist acts reportedly told researchers that volunteers were beating down their doors to join."
