    I'm sure that the inflammation of Islam is the result of a combination of complex issues.

    1. USA and Israel role in the Islamic world. Remember that Islam wasn't so lively just 30 years ago.

    2. The accumulation of wealth through oil production.

    3. The future impacts that the lack of water, food and oil will bring.

    It's also a pre-apocalypse tension combined with contemporary imperialism.

    It's not just a rich/poor issue. Many Islamic extremist leaders come from wealthy (or at least upper middle class) families and have enjoyed an education. Take Bin Laden, for example. IIRC, many - if not all - of the 9/11 hijackers had attended university. Aside from that, I tend to agree with AWAR's post. It's a combination of factors that have allowed a revival of Islam's universalist aspirations.
