"The final victory in the war on terror depends on a victory in the war of ideas, much more than the war on the battlefield. And the war - not the war, I don't want to use that terminology. The engagement of economies, the economic transformation, the transformation to modernity of a whole bunch of countries that have been avoiding the future. And that future's coming at us like it or not, in the context of terror, and in the context of failed states, and dysfunctional economies, and all that goes with that."

I'll help you out, Mock. It means the causes of terrorism are more than just differences in religion. Economic subjugation, joblessness, backwardness, hopelessness, the feeling that the world "is leaving you behind" all have a hand in leading a young man to believe that the best he can do in life is to blow himself up.
