Fareed Zakaria pinpoints in a Newsweek article:
"Like all ideologies, radical Islam is a phenomenon of the educated class."
He searches for the adrenalin of terror:
Radical ideologies of hate and violence have often seduced disaffected young men searching for some great cause. Forty years ago they would have embraced Leninist revolutionary dogma, with Che Guevara as the bin Laden of his day. Today, for Muslims, it is a violent interpretation of Islamic fundamentalism.
And how to win the battle:
In a battle of ideas, no one bullet will win. We must present a positive vision for Muslim societies, be seen as a friendly and progressive force by them and thus strengthen the moderates and liberals.
