So the desire for money and power has nothing to do with it? If these jihadi fuckheads are so righteous in their cause, why do they justify the murder of other muslims who have nothing to do with the west? Why do they always have foreign, NON-WESTERN, backers that keepem around for so long? I am not saying the west is blameless but many early posts are worded in such a fashion that it insinuates the west is soley if not completely to blame for terrorism, which is asinine. So ok, no bombings in the west without foreign influence, I'll giva ya that. But what about bombings in the ME itself? Look no further than post Soviet Afghanistan. The west didn't meddle in their politics or try to form a government. The warlords turned into fucking children and fought amongst themselves.
