Yes it is, modern political Islam is mainly a desi momin/Pakistani product, but it was watered by Oil moneys all these decades, and now it is a monster.I think Oil is the single largest contributor behind political Islam and Islamic terrorism.
I mean look closely into the Middle eastern countries like KSA, Iran, Iraq what do they even have other than OIL? No Arable land, No Vegetation, no Tourist industry, no industry.
Once the OIL dries we will see their real aauqat
Arabs were Socialist Authoritarian 50 years ago.
Up until recently Turkey was secular and used to surpress influence of Mullahs and Islam.
The Iranian Shah again wanted to suppress the Mullahdom and Westernize his country.
Afghanistan was on its way to become Communist.
No pious Arab monarchies having Oil money === no epidemic of Jihad today.
