73. why do you assume the "poor" in question have to be the actors?
these middle class people are outraged in part over the treatment of other muslims by former colonial powers, the US and their Israeli allies.

most suicide bombers (you do consider them to be terrorists?) are poor. To carry out an international plot like the one in the mythical 9-11 bombing story requires that the actors be plausibly in place. It is unlikely that a poor, dislocated Palestinian, for example, would plausibly be in the US to study.

Your argument that since all terrorists are not poor then poverty has no role in international terrorism is illogical.
