Whither the jihadi forums?

"Whither the jihadi forums?"

SNIPPET: "There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me.

These are the forums three:

• al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered "active" if only because they just joined the forum.

• al-Shmukh, a forum with a long history that includes connections al-Qaida core. Current membership: 14,327.

• Ansar al-Mujahideen Arabic Forum, which was stood up with the assistance of at least one individual with bona fide connections to al-Qaida core. Current membership: about 10,000.

Some conclusions and some speculation:

1. There are far fewer jihadi activists on the Arabic forums than there used to be. With each round of shutdowns a portion of the membership never comes back (they had probably already become inactive).

2. A portion of the jihadi community globally bypasses the forums entirely, and instead relies on Facebook and Youtube. This seems particularly true of Western jihadis, the HVEs.

Top Arabic Jihadi forums, 05 June 2011
INTERNET-HAGANAH.com ^ | June 4, 2011 | n/a
Posted on June 4, 2011 4:30:34 PM PDT by Cindy

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

Posted on February 14, 2011 2:16:36 PM PST by Cindy

“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.”

“PMW Bulletins
Little Red Riding Hood and The Martyr’s Wedding in PA kindergarten”
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Aug. 15, 2011

SNIPPET: “A Palestinian kindergarten ceremony included a play performed by children named The Martyr’s Wedding alongside a play from the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Palestinian Media Watch has documented the frequent use by Palestinians of the term “wedding” to refer to the death and funeral of “Martyrs,” in keeping with the Islamic tradition that the Martyr for Allah marries 72 Dark-Eyed Virgins of Paradise:

“’The Birds of Paradise’ kindergarten held a nice graduation party... The ceremony included beautiful performances... one of the most outstanding was a play from the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and another performance named ‘The Martyr’s Wedding’, delighted the audience by the role-play of the children, whose acting depicted the reality of roadblocks, children, occupation soldiers, and the children’s death as Martyrs. This charm caused the audience to cry, as the children’s performance was accompanied by the playing of nationalistic songs.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 2, 2011]”

Wednesday, August 17 2011, 4:19pm EDT
By Tara Fowler, Entertainment Reporter

SNIPPET: “An internet jihadist has issued an assassination threat against late-night host David Letterman.

The threat was made by a frequent poster on a site where Al Qaeda messages often appear first online in the US, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The individual apparently took offense at a joke made by Letterman on his CBS talkshow, in which the comedian made light of the death of accused terrorist leader Ilyas Kashmiri.

The online commenter wrote: “Is there not amongst you a Sayyid Nosair al-Masri (may Allah release him) to cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever.

“He showed his evil nature and deep hatred for Islam and Muslims, and said that Ilyas Kashmiri was killed and he joined bin Laden. We ask Allah to paralyze his tongue and grant the sincere monotheists his neck.””

“Member of Jihadi Forum Calls to ‘Cut Off the Tongue’ of David Letterman”

SNIPPET: “On August 17, 2011, a member of the jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam using the handle “’Omar Al-Basrawi” (’Omar from Basra, Iraq) posted a message calling on American Muslims to assassinate late night talk show host David Letterman. The post, titled “To the Muslims in America – Isn’t There a Sayyid Nosair among You to Chop Off the Tongue of this Hateful Jew?” read: “I have seen with my eyes and heard with my ears one of the scum of the Jews, one of their pigs, mocking the leaders of the mujahideen. It is the hateful David Letterman, an American Zionist, who hosts a comedy show called ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’”

http://www.makingsenseofjihad.com/2011/08/from-londonistan-the-perfect-video.html

“From Londonistan: the perfect video”

SNIPPET: “The following video was available on Archive.org for years (but not now). It is perhaps the perfect “jihad” video. It features four primary players of the Global jihad movement sitting/standing on a dais together — filmed in an effort to raise money for the Chechen jihad. It’s 48-minutes long, in Arabic and English; it features “stars” of the movement, and includes a bit of recent history. It is a perfect example of how jihad media was used in fundraising and recruitment before 9/11, and it provides some much-needed historical continuity in the current study of the origins of the jihad media phenomenon.”

SNIPPET: “The video epitomizes 90s-era Londonistan: a cultural, theological, and entrepreneurial milieu that was the heart of the global jihad movement. Some analysts say the jihad went global after 9/11. Still other believe it happened after Bin Laden’s 1998 fatwa. I believe that the “Jihad” went global once it established itself in London in the early 1990s. A group of Salafist-jihadi exiles thrived under UK’s lax policies toward “dissidents,” exploting both the government’s disinterest and commonplace Western freedoms - religion, speech, etc. In this global stew, Londonistan became a safehaven with limitless freedom and cash. It became a proving ground for a global mindset.”

SNIPPET: “There you go. A little bit of recent history, with some provocative statements by Londonistan’s professional provocateurs. Much has changed in London since the 1990s, but that history hasn’t been written yet, and we’d be short-sighted if we thought we knew everything that needed to be known.”

“Feds: Threat of Al Qaeda Terror Attack on 9/11”

By BRIAN ROSS (@brianross) , RHONDA SCHWARTZ and RICHARD ESPOSITO
Sept. 8, 2011

SNIPPET: “At least three individuals — one believed to be a U.S. citizen — entered the U.S. in August by air with the intent to launch a vehicle-borne attack against Washington D.C. or New York around the anniversary of 9-11, according to intelligence officials. As news of the information became public authorities began weighing whether to raise the national threat level.

The suspected terrorists are believed to have embarked on their journey to the U.S. from Afghanistan, according to one senior official taking a route that took them through at least one other country, possibly Iran.

One official added that at least two rental trucks — one from Penske and one from Budget — were being sought nationwide. The Budget GMC truck and the Penske GMC both were missing from locations in Kansas City, Missouri. It was not immediately known if that search was connected to the plot.”

“Truck Thefts Raise Awareness of Terror Threat”
Monica Evans, edited by Jason Vaughn
6:22 p.m. CDT, September 8, 2011

SNIPPET: “KANSAS CITY, Mo.— Kansas City, Missouri, Police went on alert after nine box-trucks were stolen from two different rental companies over the past week, and they say that this weekend’s 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks is giving them reason to be concerned.”

SNIPPET: “Police say they discovered that the stolen trucks were not intended for terrorist acts, but detectives say the thieves certainly had something illegal in mind.”

SNIPPET: “Two people have been arrested in connection to the thefts, and police say that more victims may be involved.

While police say the metro isn’t under a credible terroist threat, Michael Corwin, the commander of Homeland Security for the KCPD says he would like everyone to be on the look out for suspicious activity.

“If there is a backpack sitting some place where it normally wouldn’t be sitting, a box truck sitting some place, a van, whatever it may be, it’s about suspicious behavior,” said Corwin.”

“NYC on alert after ‘specific, credible’ threat of 9/11 car-bomb attack”
By LARRY CELONA
Last Updated: 6:29 AM, September 9, 2011
Posted: 2:16 AM, September 9, 2011

SNIPPET: “A “specific” and “credible” terror threat against New York and Washington, DC, was revealed last night — involving three men who entered the country last month from Pakistan and were instructed by al Qaeda to detonate a car bomb on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, law-enforcement sources told The Post. The information, which came from chatter picked up overseas by the CIA, said the attack would occur on the 10th, 11th or 12th, the sources said.”

SNIPPET: “NYPD officials have also been briefed in recent days about three men who were arrested in Ottawa with 2,000 pounds of stolen explosives, as well as two men captured in Berlin.

Cops are checking whether those arrests are connected to the possible anniversary attack, sources said.”

“Authorities hunting for three Al Qaeda thugs who may be planning strike on 9/11 anniversary: sources”
BY ROCCO PARASCANDOLA, ALISON GENDAR AND MIKE JACCARINO
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS

Originally Published:Thursday, September 8th 2011, 8:09 PM
Updated: Friday, September 9th 2011, 3:42 AM

SNIPPET: “Officials are focused on three “seasoned” Al Qaeda operatives who most likely were personally dispatched by the organization’s new chief, sources told the Daily News.”

SNIPPET: “Because the three would-be terrorists have common names, cops have been unable to pinpoint their exact location, sources said.

The operatives are allegedly targeting transit hubs with car bombs - and not a chemical attack or so-called nuclear-laced “dirty bomb.”

Intel also suggests the Al Qaeda operatives were planning the strike for Sunday, the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.”

“Authorities piece together clues from flight logs over 9/11 threat”
From Susan Candiotti and Barbara Starr, CNN
September 10, 2011 11:20 a.m. EDT

SNIPPET: “New York (CNN) — Two of the three suspects believed to be involved in a potential 9/11 anniversary plot against New York or Washington are of Arab descent and traveled to the United States last week, according to a U.S. government official.

Authorities are operating under the assumption that two of the suspects have arrived on U.S. soil, and have been piecing together clues gleaned from flight logs and manifests, among other sources, said the official, who declined to be named.

A third plotter is believed to be have traveling in Europe, though it is not clear whether that person has arrived in the United States, the official said.

American spy networks had intercepted communications of an attack from an al Qaeda operative in Pakistan, derived from a source who has provided accurate information in the past, official say.”
