Can terrorism ever be eliminated?

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 Since 11 September 2001, it is often pointed out whether terrorism can ever be eliminated. In my opinion, terrorism never comes to an end for the following three reasons.
 The first reason is that it is impossible to eradicate religion. A main cause of terrorism is the different beliefs and religions. Terrorists act based on religious beliefs. It is impossible to eliminate terrorism unless we can eliminate religion.
 The second reason is that it is impossible to please everybody in every religion. A main cause of terrorism is the feeling of resentment and grievance. Terrorists act based on political motives. Their intention is to make the world a better place. It is impossible to eliminate terrorism unless we can please everybody in every religion.
 The last reason is that it is impossible to eradicate crime. Terrorism is not only religious vandalism but also everyday violent crime. For example, taking hostages and demanding a ransom from the government amounts nothing less than terrorism. It is impossible to eliminate terrorism unless we can eradicate this kind of crime.
 As I mentioned above, I believe that terrorism will never be obliterated because it is impossible to eradicate religion and crime and to please everybody in every religion.

いつも大体私は肯定派の意見を書くことが多いのですが今回は否定派の意見です。
ただ3番目の理由はちょっとわかりにくいですね。
