Judge rejects ‘Defensive Jihad’ argument in Abdullah al-Muhajir (José Padilla) trial
This article speaks of “’defensive jihad,’ which differs from terrorism because it is meant to counter aggression against Muslims and does not threaten innocent people.” Which sounds great, until you realize that some Muslims believe that no non-Muslims are innocent, and that unbelief itself is an act of aggression. When self-proclaimed moderate groups take up these contentions and refute them, their moderation will be beyond question. But not until then.
“Judge Rejects ‘Defensive Jihad’ Argument,” by Curt Anderson for Associated Press (thanks to all who sent this in):
MIAMI Jurors who will soon debate the guilt or innocence of Jose Padilla and two other men on terrorism support charges cannot consider whether their actions were justified by Islamic law, a federal judge ruled.
U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke agreed Thursday to a request from prosecutors to instruct the jurors that each of the men can be convicted even if they “may have believed that the conduct was religiously, politically or morally required, or that ultimate good would result.”
Jurors are expected to begin deliberations after closing statements Monday and Tuesday. Padilla and co-defendants Adham Amin Hassoun and Kifah Wael Jayyousi are charged with being part of a North American support cell that provided finances, supplies and recruits to al-Qaida and other Islamic extremist groups.
A cornerstone of the defense during the nearly three-month trial was the idea that Islamic teaching provides for legitimate “defensive jihad,” which differs from terrorism because it is meant to counter aggression against Muslims and does not threaten innocent people.
But Hassoun attorney Ken Swartz said his closing argument will not focus on whether violent actions might have been justified. Swartz said he plans to emphasize that any money or supplies provided to overseas groups was meant for humanitarian assistance.

“Worldwide Internet, Al Qaida
Exposing on-line Jihadists”
By Judi McLeod
Friday, August 10, 2007
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “When it comes to capitalizing on the Worldwide Internet, Al Qaida has shot up to the top of the list in the savvy category.
Jihadists working the Internet are prolific, so much so that they could easily borrow a line in popular use during the Cold War: Theyre everywhere!
In six years I have bookmarked some 6,000-+ Jihadist websites and the list is still growing, says Archangel, code name for an online Jihadist-tracking expert.
Finding terrorists in cyber space has become a popular pursuit on the Internet with scores of cyber sleuths up late at night searching on-line for terrorists while their families sleep.”
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Terrorists dont just recruit on-line, they use the Internet to fund terrorism and to disseminate propaganda.
What is to stop them from sabotaging Western websites?”
ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Jihadists are capable of that kind of cunning.
Meanwhile, cyber sleuths hunting terrorists on-line are a valuable tool in the ongoing International War Against Terrorism.”

14 suspects detained for ties to al-Qaeda in Iraq leaders
BAGHDAD, Iraq Coalition Forces detained 14 suspected terrorists Thursday and Friday around central and northern Iraq during continuing operations to remove senior leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
Coalition Forces conducted three precision raids in and around Baghdad. Thursday, ground forces captured an individual suspected of leading an al-Qaeda in Iraq car bombing cell. Friday, Coalition Forces captured a suspected terrorist with ties to senior terrorist leaders in Baghdad. Near Taji, ground forces captured an alleged weapons facilitator working for al-Qaeda in Iraqs emir of the northern belts around Baghdad and detained two additional suspects.
In Salah ad Din province, Coalition Forces also targeted senior leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq during three operations Thursday and Friday. During a precision raid Thursday west of Balad, Coalition Forces detained one suspected terrorist while targeting an individual associated with the al-Qaeda in Iraq emir of northern Iraq who allegedly facilitates the movement of terrorist leaders. Five suspected terrorists were detained during operations Friday near Balad and Samarra targeting the al-Qaeda in Iraq communications network and an al-Qaeda leader known to conduct car bombings, kidnappings, assassinations and extortion.
Based on information from suspects detained earlier in the week, Coalition Forces conducted an operation Friday targeting al-Qaeda in Iraq senior leaders and their associates in Mosul. The ground forces detained three individuals with alleged ties to the terrorist leaders.
Al-Qaeda is feeling the pressure of our operations, and were relentlessly pursuing the top levels of terrorist leaders, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson. We will continue to target and then capture or kill the terrorists who direct and conduct brutal attacks against Iraqis.
