Western Travel Warnings May Contribute to Terrorist Acts on Kenya Coast

The New York Times published on 23 February 2015 an article titled "A Catch-22 in Kenya: Western Terrorism Alerts May Fuel Terrorism" by Jeffrey Gettleman. 

The argument goes that as Western countries issue travel warnings to avoid the coast of Kenya, it decimates the tourist industry, resulting in increased unemployment and joblessness.  Youth unemployment is said to be a major driver of radicalization.  This leads to even more terrorism.  Read the article and judge for yourself.
