The Parents of Terrorists?

I wonder what the parents of terrorists say about their children's actions.

What could they point to as the reason why their children target innocents and create terror?

How would they teach us with regard to combatting the pain and suffering terror causes?

What would they tell us about how things might have been different for their children?

How has this terror affected their lives and the lives of those close to them?

How can we best parent and teach our young children so that they don't grow up to hurt and harm innocent people?

So much suffering is outside of our impact, but perhaps this is one area we can understand better in order to make positive change.
