Western logic often believes that the majority of Islamic terrorists were originally born in a moderate Islamic culture, but somewhere along the way, some specific unpopular education or inspiration was dropped on them by a few bad apple jihadists (who are not true Muslims) and turned them into terrorists.
But that is not how Muslim jihadists are created. To be born and raised in a majority Islamic society, one cannot avoid but interacting daily with radical and jihadist views and hate indoctrination. In fact, at least until very recently, those who refuse to do jihad are considered infidels. Even the minority Christian population in Egypt was forced to participate in all the jihadist wars against Israel, or else they would be considered traitors.
The Muslim world was subjected to an electric shock in their mainstream jihadist education after 9/11, when the West started questioning their sacred cow of jihad. But as usual, Muslims who are commanded to lie for the sake of Islam’s reputation had to explain that jihad means an inner struggle and not killing and torturing non-Muslims in Islam’s holy agenda to control the world. Today, the Muslim world is in turmoil and even internal war, because they don’t know how to explain to the West the truth about what they learned over centuries as their pride and centerpiece of their religious education: jihad.
To answer the question of who radicalized the terrorists, the answer is that the whole culture of Islam has constantly radicalized terrorists. Perfectly healthy young men and women were driven by a cruel totalitarian ideology to do the unthinkable in the eyes of the world: they are driven to hate their lives, hate humanity, and abandon their kids for the sake of terrorizing non-Muslims, expanding Islam, and bringing the whole world under a glorious Islamic Caliphate.
There is no escape from the Islamic hate and jihad indoctrination if one lives in the Muslim world. We were all subjected to Islamic hate indoctrination just by hearing mosque preaching and reading Quran commandments to “fight in His cause, and slay and be slain.”

It is also true that not everyone subjected to Islamic radicalization ends up a radical. In fact, it is nothing short of a miracle that in spite of the intense Islamic jihad culture, the majority of Muslims are not terrorists or active jihadists. http://pamelageller.com/2015/12/nonie-darwish-where-were-the-terrorists-radicalized.html/
