Education goes hand in hand with economic development. It has always been the poor and uneducated that are the victims of religious zealotry.
The battle cannot be won on the fields of philosophy and scientific truths. We (the developed world) need to provide economic aid with specific terms to focus the funds on secular education. Even it is with Countries we don't share political or ideological beliefs with.
At the risk of sounding overly solcialist, it;s time to share the wealth, for our own sake as mch as theirs.
