To think that by donating to charity and becoming a “Charity Warrior” is going to actively combat global terrorism you must be deluded. It is
about so much more than money, many of these people believe that they are locked in a holy war. They don’t care how much money you’re going to
donate to their villages for some of them “we” are evil incarnate and it is their duty form God to kill as many of us as possible.
Sure charity is important, it is important to give to the people plagued by war to provide them with help and to build infrastructure however this is
not what combats terrorism. Many terrorists in parts of the world are motivated by ideology, not money or material wants. Sure there are many who join
groups such as the Taliban and other groups because they have been forced into joining as they will provide them with an income or threaten them with
violence. But for the most part when it comes to the likes of Al-Qa’ida its all about ideology above all else.
The type of charity you are talking about its much better suited to area’s such as Nigeria with Boko Harama or possibly other impoverished African
states where the recruitment of child soldiers is common place. However your idea is really not all that applicable with Middle Eastern terrorism.
Combatting terrorism involves so much more than charity and money, nice idea, but flawed
