Abstract: Individual terrorists are frequently behaving seemingly absurd, e.g. by carrying out suicide operations, while activities of the terrorist organizations as a whole often seem to be conducted in a very effective way. These facts caused many researchers to regard the leaders representing the organizations like rational entities, while the followers are supposed to be just obeying and, hence, to be irrational.
