By Jessica Stern Published Sept. 21, 2004 8:00 p.m.

Lecturer at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, Jessica spent six years interviewing religious terrorists in Pakistan, India, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Indonesia, and the U.S.. Along the way, she discovered what causes someone to become a religious zealot and how terrorist leaders cultivate followers with emotional, spiritual, and financial rewards. Using terrorist motivations as her basis, she explains why the war in Iraq could not have played out better for terrorists if bin Laden had scripted it himself. Read her manifesto to learn why.
