"Translated from the German by Christopher Sultan."

PHOTO CAPTION: "A growing community of German-speaking Islamists has developed on the Internet. Aiming to find new recruits, they glorify jihad and call for attacks on Germany. A new study warns that such online propaganda might foster a new generation of terrorists."

SNIPPET: "International terrorist groups like al-Qaida recognized the importance of the Internet for recruiting new supporters early on."

SNIPPET: "Intelligence services can also take advantage of the anonymity of Internet forums to deliberately plant false information or obtain insider information."

“Salafist preacher and Internet activist indicted in Germany”
September 13, 2011

SNIPPET: “Ibrahim Abou-Nagie, a salafi/jihadi preacher very active online, has been indicted in Cologne, Germany. Abou-Nagie, together with Abu Dujana of Bonn, operate as Die Wahre Religion (The True Religion). They are cited in multiple cases including those of the now-deceased Bekkay Harrach, and more recently Robert M. (arrested with an associate attempting to enter Britain whilst in possession of jihadist materials including Inspire magazine), not to mention Arid Uka, the Frankfurt shooter:”

By Jeremy Kirk
October 17, 2012 02:19 AM ET

SNIPPET: “But the lesson isn’t to withdraw from the Internet, which could invite other problems, such as impersonators. “You should choose what you expose really carefully. But you can’t put nothing up there,” Temmingh said.”

SNIPPET: “Looking away, not caring, or hoping for the best are not viable options in fighting terrorism (in general) and the global jihad (specifically). Terrorism must be fought head on 24/7 and preventing terrorism is far better than just reacting to one terror-related event after another.” -Cindy (July 1, 2011)

SNIPPET: “”You must understand that the internet is the primary communication tool/propaganda tool/recruiting tool/fund raising tool for the global jihad. Once you understand that; then you should not be surprised at all that the jihad is in the same country you reside in.” -Cindy (July 10, 2007)

SNIPPET: “I. When considering the matter of jihadis online, remember that most of what we think we know is based on analyses of the comments made by an handful of vocal activists. The vast majority of jihadis online, be they on forums or social networking sites[i], say nothing.

“Al-Qaeda posts online recruitment adverts offering training for suicide bombers to target the US, Israel and France”

SNIPPET:

“-Advertisements ask for volunteers to get in touch via e-mail with details about their own experience
-Posted on a variety of jihadist forums”

By JILL REILLY
PUBLISHED: 21:07 EST, 6 June 2012 | UPDATED: 21:08 EST, 6 June 2012

SNIPPET: “Adverts have appeared on several jihadist web forums, offering to recruit and train potential suicide bombers.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is offering training for suicide bombers to target the US, Israel and France.

The advertisements ask for volunteers to get in touch via e-mail with details about their own experience and proposed targets, and were posted on a variety of jihadist forums, including Al-Fidaa, Shmoukh al-Islam and Honein.”

Al-Qaida’s online forums go dark
UPI ^ | Published: April 2, 2012 at 2:37 PM | n/a
Posted on April 2, 2012 4:31:33 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) — A blackout of al-Qaida’s main Web sites is in its 11th day, and officials think the forums may have been brought down in a cyberattack.

While no one has claimed credit for disabling the sites...”

SNIPPET: “The loss of information typically confuses and frustrates the readers of the Web sites.

“It leaves the rank-and-file to guess which messages and which messengers are genuine al-Qaida, and provides undercover operators with new opportunities to disrupt the movement,” said A. Aaron Weisburd, senior fellow at the Homeland Security Policy Institute.”

“Social Networks & The Online Jihad”
World Threats.com ^ | October 26, 2011 | Posted by Candice Lanier
Posted on October 31, 2011 1:38:14 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “In July, the British government warned that Al Qaeda’s exploitation of social networking websites is on the rise.”

SNIPPET: “The massive and multifarious network of websites and social media has presented a challenge to authorities in trying to combat it. Additionally, civil liberty concerns have conflicted with government efforts to spy on communications.

Reducing terrorist activity on social media sites has been particularly difficult because users have adopted new forms of communication to conform with the new formats. Many Arabic speakers on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other sites use Arabizi, a form of colloquial Arabic written in the Latin alphabet and numbers. This allows the use of a standard English-language keyboard for typing messages. There exists, however, no standard version of Arabizi. It varies from country to country, even among groups within countries and is affected by differences in dialect.”

SNIPPET: “Note: PWP stands for PassWord-Protected, meaning that a login is required to view - let alone participate in - discussions. Since some in the audience don’t understand the significance of this, allow me to spell it out: if only members can read the forum, then anyone observed reading the forum is a member. They have zero deniability (they couldn’t have accidentally “wandered into” the site), and they had to make the effort to join (an expression of intent).

While the goal here is to present a range of sites, the fact is that the jihadis themselves have largely coalesced at Shmukh and Ansar Arabic.”

“TOP TEN JIHADI FORUMS, AS OF 14 FEBRUARY, 2011”

SNIPPET: “Assembled with the help of my dear brothers in Fateh al-Islam (and their minders in the Syrian intelligence service). The [PWP] notation indicates the site is password protected. There’s nothing worse than the mournful wailing of analysts, graduate students, and reporters who find themselves locked out of their favorite forum. Join early, join often, save important discussions as you find them, try not to say anything too embarrassing, and if you’re a civilian, make some effort to let your friendly neighborhood secret police know that you’re a good guy, not a bad guy, so they don’t have to waste time and money investigating you. Forums are not just websites, they are battlefields, and spectators are not particularly welcome by any of the combatants.”

Two Most Wanted Terrorists Named
Third Man Sought for Questioning

11/14/12

Two individuals—one a United States citizen who allegedly provided support to a foreign terrorist organization, the other wanted for his alleged role in the overseas kidnapping of an American—have been added to the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.

A third man wanted for questioning in connection with providing material support to terrorists has been added to our Seeking Information—Terrorism list.

Podcast: Most Wanted Terrorists
Most Wanted Terrorists

Omar Shafik Hammami, formerly from Alabama, has reportedly been a senior leader in al Shabaab, an insurgency group in Somalia. Al Shabaab was designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department in 2008; it has since repeatedly threatened terrorist actions against America and American interests. Hammami allegedly traveled to Somalia in 2006 and joined al Shabaab’s military wing, eventually becoming a leader in the organization. Hammami—who has been indicted in the U.S. on various terrorism charges—is believed to be in Somalia.

Raddulan Sahiron, a native of the Philippines, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the 1993 kidnapping of an American in the Philippines by the Abu Sayyaf Group, designated a foreign terrorist organization in 1997. Sahiron, believed to be the leader of the Abu Sayyaf Group, was indicted on federal hostage-taking charges and may currently be in the area of Patikul Jolo, Sulu, Philippines.

Seeking Information—Terrorism

Shaykh Aminullah is wanted for questioning in connection with providing material support to terrorists…with the aid of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (designated a foreign terrorist organization in 2001). Among other activities, Aminullah allegedly provided assistance, including funding and recruits, to the Al Qaeda network; provided funding and other resources, including explosive vests, to the Taliban; and facilitated the activities of anti-coalition militants operating in Afghanistan by raising money in support of terrorist activities. He is believed to be in the Ganj District of Peshawar, Pakistan.

The FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List was created in October 2001. We subsequently created the Seeking Information—Terrorism list to publicize our efforts to locate terrorism suspects not yet indicted in the U.S.

In addition to the beneficial aspect of worldwide publicity, individuals named to the Most Wanted Terrorists list must:

Have threatened the security of U.S. nationals or U.S. national security;
Be considered a dangerous menace to society;

Have indicated a willingness to commit or indicate to commit an act to cause death or serious bodily injury; prepare or plan terrorist activity; gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; or solicit funds or other things of value for terrorist activity;

Have provided material support such as currency or financial services or assistance to a terrorist organization but do not necessarily have to belong to that organization;

Be subject to lawful detention, either by the U.S. government based on an active federal warrant for a serious felony offense or by any other lawful authority; and

Be the subject of a pending FBI investigation.

Individuals on the Seeking Information—Terrorism list are being sought for questioning in connection with terrorist threats against the U.S. Unlike those on the Most Wanted Terrorists list, these individuals have not been indicted by the U.S. government.

If you have information about any of these men, please submit a tip or contact the nearest FBI office abroad or in the U.S.

“Jerusalem bus driver charged with spying for Hezbollah”
By GABE FISHER November 25, 2012, 1:05 pm 2

SNIPPET: “The State Attorney’s Office on Sunday indicted Jerusalem resident Issam Hashem Mashahara for spying on behalf of Hezbollah. The 38-year-old Israeli-Arab bus driver is a resident of Jabel Mukaber, an Arab neighborhood of East Jerusalem.”

SNIPPET: “The next day, he met the agents again and was taken, blindfolded, to meet a computer expert. Mashahara allegedly received encryption software — designed to look like a children’s DVD — in order to keep in contact with the organization upon his return to Israel, and about $1,500 in cash to aid him in carrying out his espionage activities.

Back in Israel several days later, he purchased a laptop and, per his instructions, set up a special Facebook account to continue his activities with Hezbollah.”

Social Media, Terrorism Connect Too Well
SFGATE.com ^ | Published 1:16 p.m., Saturday, December 1, 2012 | Janine Zacharia
Posted on December 5, 2012 12:51:07 AM PST by Cindy

SNIPPET: “Social media is no longer simply a fun way to share updates on the harmless idiosyncrasies of our lives. It can undermine national security, and there ought to be a more robust discussion between the Bay Area technology world and Washington on what to do about it.

Cyber-terrorism, especially the potential for electronic tampering with U.S. industrial or military installations, is a paramount national security threat that Washington is working to forestall. We’re all working to protect our accounts from hackers. But the cyber-threat getting far less public attention involves the social media networks we use every day and the potential they have to trigger an unexpected crisis.”
