islamic violence among petty criminals

It seems to me that the so-called terrorists from Islamic backgrounds are mostly petty criminals.

I'm wondering whether the problem is puritanical, repressive upbringing.

Some few turn to petty crime, which doubtless leaves them with strong feeling of guilt and failure.

At some point, they become self-hating, and feel a need to claim they are not worthless and are, in fact, worthy and meritorious.

So they sublimate their feelings of guilt in a fake act of 'morality', cleansing the Earth of their idea of non-believers.

An expiation, a form of suicide by cop.

Even a form of
"See, I'm not a sinner really, I'm a hero and martyr."

Update: Mark Hecker, director of publications at the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI), has completed a study that confirms abelard's analysis. It will be published on 10 April, 2018.
Original announcement with summary in French.
Summary in English.

"It shows that these individuals are distinguished by a lower level of education and professional integration, a higher degree of poverty, a higher crime commitment, and a closer relationship in the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa than average of the French population." [From announcement, translated from French.]
