    Some years back, when I was working at the Institute for Counter-Terrorism, I wrote a paper as part of an assessment of whether Jihadis were predisposed toward the use of chemical weapons. The study concluded that the jihadi movements were more similar to cults than they were to traditional terrorist organizations, and were far more likely to resort to non-conventional weapons than were earlier types of terrorist organizations.
