The Rich, Educated Jihadis of Bangladesh

The attack in Bangladesh once again raises the question, “What causes jihad?” Politicians and the media often answer this question by claiming that jihad arises from poverty and lack of education. The Bangladeshi jihadis, however, were wealthy and well-educated. It seems we must search for the source of jihad elsewhere. In this video, David Wood examines Muhammad’s claims about martyrdom to understand why rich, educated Muslims would throw their lives away to kill in the name of Allah.

    Good points and well stated – particularly the part about the “snivelling cowards” who serve as our leaders and journalists and cannot, or refuse to, see the connection between Islam and jihad.
