Recently, Lawrence sidestepped this issue, so I thought I'd try again.

The issue: Is Islamic Terrorism merely a question of ideology, or is it also a 
response to experiences and perceptions in the real world?

To place the question within the context of our recent discussions, the issue 
resolves around whether war on Iraq has led to less or more Islamic terrorism. 
Lawrence argues for less. Others, including myself, argue for more.

Whilst there is further evidence to bring to the discussion, I'd like to ask 
Lawrence to state clearly that he agrees with the outline of the issue as it is 
laid out. If not, what exactly he believes the issue to be.
