ABSTRACT
Chapter 10 of the book "Global Community: Global Security" is presented. It discusses the cultural and psychological causes of suicide terrorism in Iraq and Palestine. It relates that poverty and low education are not characteristics of most suicide bombers. It suggests that the U.S. occupation of Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the dissatisfaction with their own governments bred revenge among its people and resulted in a large pool of volunteers who were willing to die for the sake of Allah.
