The image was jolting: within the posting from the jihadi message was a photograph of a charred American corpse hanging upside down from a bridge over the Euphrates. But as disturbing as the image was, it was the sponsor of the page displaying the image that caused me the greatest concern. Right there on the screen beside the desecrated body of the American was an advertisement for the J.C. Penney Customer Appreciation Sale!

Do You Yahoo!

Al-Qaeda does.

American advertisers many be the (unwitting) source of much of al-Qaeda's propaganda funding.

Let me know if you want on or off the cyber-jehadi ping list.

It is important to understand that these companies are not intentionally supporting terrorism – but it is happening all the same.

They are not "supporting" terrorism. They are buying run of the site ads.

The lady is a tad hysterical.
