The problem is lack of education, jobs, and literacy. The people who are recruited into the Taliban and Al Queda are Muslims, but can't read the Quran. The Al Queda religious leaders "translate" the Quran for them, since they can't read it, and tell them that inorder to go to heaven, they must kill non-Muslims. Simply put, this is not what the Quran states. They misguide the people, with no intentions of really teaching them about Islam.
I travel to areas in the Middle East that have areas of high illiteracy and teach the people how to read, so they aren't recruited by the Taliban or Al Queda, and so they aren't told what's not really in the Quran.
What they're doing is not a religious movement, but a politcal one. The Taliban and Al Queda are doing this to further their politcal move, in the guise of it being under "Islam."
