Let the U.S. entirely leave the Arabic/Islamic countries, cut most of the economic connections to those countries or transform them to a decent trade, and abandon all military support for Israel -- and I GUARANTEE that very soon there will be no more terrorist attacks like that of Sep 11.

I doubt it. Whatever the shortcomings of US foreign policy there will always be people who resort to violence. This is a fact of human nature.

The Sept 11th attacks may have been on a scale which had not been seen previously, but that does not mean that there were not terrorists who would have committed such acts if they had the means to do so. If terrorist attacks are getting worse that is probably a reflection of the more advanced technology available to such people. No doubt there will be those who are willing to use nuclear weapons if they ever get the technology.

I doubt that TM is the solution, but a better answer may be found in the spiritual rather than the political world. I doubt that there will ever be a political solution which does not leave some willing to resort to violence, even if current policies exacerbate the situation.
