NEW YORK -- Al-Qaida-linked terror groups and their sympathizers have in recent months made a big splash on the Internet, making it their communications channel of choice.

They're benefiting from free discussion boards, e-mail accounts and other online forums for propaganda, recruitment, fund-raising and even planning.

If law enforcement has done little to squelch these outlets, it's only in part because of the difficulty of catching moving targets. More importantly, these online soapboxes can provide investigators with crucial leads.

I hope law enforcement keeps a close eye on these sites.

all I gotta say on this is that, my bad arabic has translated a little of this, but that aside, I know a VAST number of folks that speak Arabic, Urdu, Hindu, and any number of any of the languages spoken by the Jihadis. They can't hide behind language.

Umm, Hindu isn't a language, i'll take that as a typo for Hindi.
Won't terrorists be using Urdu or Arabic?. India's Hindu are more likely to be targets of the terrorists than join them.

They do keep tabs on them, and they are a good way to find out what is going on in their sick world.

>>Umm, Hindu isn't a language<<

I know. I know many a Patel. They speak like 45 different languages. I just label the bulk of them as "Hindu".

I personally know about 5 different languages...all of them are aweful cept of course my English (and I know how to use a semi-colon, go figure).

I know about 200 words in arabic...common ones. I can pick them out of a graphic or a sign. Usually gets me a meaning. Transliteration however isn't always the same.
