No, Mr. Kerry: Poverty Doesn’t Produce Terrorism — Islam Does

Written by Pete Parker on January 21, 2014

Secretary of State John Kerry is not only a scathing liberal and traitor to his fellow soldiers–but he is also a blithering buffoon.

During a meeting last week with Vatican officials in Rome, Kerry spouted the following absurdity: “poverty, which in many cases is the root cause of terrorism or even the root cause of disenfranchisement on this planet.”


Kerry’s statement defies the following reality: 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden was worth an estimated $300 million.

Yeah, that’s right–$300 million!

Bin Laden–whose father was a construction magnate in Saudi Arabia–never knew the meaning of the word poverty. The terror kingpin was raised in the lap of luxury as a child, and never went wanting.

In fact–his fellow 9/11 hijackers/jihadists were all reared in upper-middleclass households. These Islamo-thugs were all well fed, clothed and educated by their parents. Not a one was ever a homeless beggar forced to scavenge through garbage cans for food.
Yet whenever the issue of poverty is discussed–despite the above mentioned facts–Kerry (and his ilk) never fail to mention that it is the leading producer of global terrorism.


So, if poverty isn’t to blame for terrorism–what is? ISLAM!

Osama bin Laden stated on numerous occasions that he was simply following the way of the Prophet Mohammed. Bin Laden often praised Mohammed for leading 72 military campaigns to violently liquidate the “pigs” and “infidels.”

In fact, bin Laden’s favorite Koranic passage was Sura 9:73 which reads: “O prophet! strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them. Their abode is hell, and an evil destination it is.

Bin Laden would often be heard reciting this passage just prior to, or just after, a terrorist attack in which innocent life was savagely eradicated at his behest.

Remember: not one major school of Islamic jurisprudence has ever (at anytime) condemned bin Laden’s use of this passage to justify his reign of terror and mayhem (including 9/11).

And why not? Because if they condemned bin Laden–they would have to condemn the very person Sura 9:73 was written for–Mohammed.

After all–Mohammed shed more innocent blood than even bin Laden.

In the final analysis–despite what the blithering buffoon says: poverty doesn’t produce terrorism–Islam does.
