al-Qaeda's on the web
Al-Qaeda has intensified it's indoctrination to the offspring of Muslims migrants in the west. This of course is to incite terrorism and create a 5 column within the homelands of what it see's being the enemy.
With programs such as freenet they would have autonomy, as its hard for authorities to hack into their network, so I expect they are also using such a service. But that's another issue, the main point is the factor British and US servers are being used to spread the word of al-Qaeda. I can not understand why most of these sites are not shut down.
Where as an effort by the west was made to take the fight to the terrorist, the terrorist are using western technology to bring back the fight to us. By indoctrination of young Muslims in the west.
RIYADH (AP) — Increasing numbers of English-language Web sites are spreading al-Qaeda's message to Muslims in the West.
They translate writings and sermons once largely out of reach of English readers and often feature charismatic clerics like Anwar al-Awlaki, who exchanged dozens of e-mails with the US Army psychiatrist accused of the shootings at the Fort Hood military base in Texas.
The US-born al-Awlaki has been an inspiration to several militants arrested in the United States and Canada in recent years, with his Web-based sermons often turning up on their computers.
"The point is you don't have to be an official part of al-Qaeda to spread hatred and sectarian views," said Evan Kohlmann, a senior investigator for the New York-based NEFA Foundation, which researches Islamic militants.
"If you look at the most influential documents in terms of homegrown terrorism cases, it's not training manuals on building bombs," Kohlmann said. "The most influential documents are the ones that are written by theological advisers, some of whom are not even official al-Qaeda members."
