03 August 2009 "TOP TEN" LIST OF JIHADI FORUMS FOR 03 AUGUST 2009
It's been almost a year since a failure of truly epic proportions brought down the most significant websites of the global jihad, on or about 10 September, 2008. A year before that failure, the same sites were the target of a citizen-based effort to drive them off of the Internet. This 2007 campaign against the jihadi forums had the effect of encouraging the creation of a number of new sites, while other forums (e.g. al-Hanein) loosened their membership requirements. The net result was that the events of 2008 found the web of jihadi sites more resilient in the face of calamity than they might otherwise have been. Here now is my currently list of the Top Ten such sites. In this case I have ranked them roughly according to their significance, but the ordering is still somewhat arbitrary: The most active sites are not necessarily the most significant in terms of content, the sites with the most members may have a great many inactive members still on the rolls, the older sites may not be entirely jihadist in nature, and so on.

“THE TAJDEED FORUM IS BACK ONLINE”
SNIPPET - QUOTE:
For the record:

“PINING FOR THE FOUR FORUMS*”
SNIPPET: “* A reference to the four forums most central to al-Qaida’s online operations, which went away on or about 10 September, 2008.”

FORUM STATUS UPDATE 12 SEPTEMBER 2009
At the moment, roughly half of the top sites are down, and half are up. Why that is the case is a mystery to me.
as-Ansar (Arabic): Down - “Under reconstruction”
al-Faloja: Down - “Suspended”
al-Ma’ark: Down - “Suspended”
Ana al-Muslm: Up
al-Shmokh: Down - They ask for your prayers as they try and restore the site (which appears to have been deleted from their server).
el-Shouraa: Down - unreachable, no DNS

“FORUM STATUS UPDATE 13 SEPTEMBER 2009”
SNIPPET: “I’m not going to keep posting updates - most of the sites that are down will recover, eventually. Of course, if their recovery takes too long, they may be accused of being spies upon their return.”

“GREAT JIHADI WEBSITE MELTDOWN OF 2009”
SNIPPET: “Here’s a review of the situation as presented in posts on the surviving forums.”
Thank you Jet Jaguar for the bump.

“WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT, ALFIE?”
SNIPPET: “Congressional Quarterly is currently trying to figure out what Internet Haganah is. I gave them my best shot at an honest, complete, and direct answer, but I’m not sure they quite get it. For the rest of you:”
No, I don’t know anything new about those terms.
I somewhat remember ozook or something similar and the 16 and 14 with an S., but I thought those went away with tsouli.
A different number (not related to the above) ON THE INTERNET:
INTERNET-HAGANAH.com: "IT'S AS GOOD AN IDEA AS ANY..." (SNIPPET: "...just keep in mind that the first, second, and third ranked people are all together on the same small set of websites - the article implies that everyone online is a wannabe, and that is demonstrably false.") (November 2, 2009)

“WHITHER THE AS-SAHAB BRAND?”
Good morning Cindy!
Seeing the “TOP TEN LIST” made me think immediately of David Letterman. 8^)
Dave may not be a terrorist, but I do wonder whose side he’s on some times!
Good morning Airborne.
I never watch his show, but he does seem to be making the news.
Oh well, his 15 minutes of “news” fame, I guess.
Funny how that ESPN analyst got fired so quickly for having an affair, but Letterman still has a job even though he was having multiple affairs with his staff underlings!
Seems like the media have a self-imposed news blackout on his trysts, including the rumors of a “sex room” right there at the studio, and rumors of divorce talk from his wife.
Typical liberal double standards.
