Title: The interaction of religion and terrorism
Author: Tarlow Peter
Abstract: Abstract This article addresses the interfacing of religious ideology and terrorism. It examines religion as a form of political motivational ideology. The author asks if terrorism is caused by lack of economic or political opportunities, a theory often presented by both Western politicians and media or if terrorism is more ideological in nature or a mixture of the mundane with the ideological. The article asks next-world oriented religions may have a higher proclivity toward political violence. The article questions the validity of the use of the term religion for nonChristian and Muslim faiths and compares both eastern and western faith systems. Key Words: Religion, Terrorism, Tourism, Cosmologies.
