No, actually, the religious fundamentalist version of terrorist is even more scarey than the simply greedy or power hungry, in that the former actually believe in their own rectitude, and thus they stop at nothing whereas the latter, akin to werewolves, know they're doing something criminal and hedge their bets for the sake of survival and return on "investment".
