Posted on 01/23/2012 2:13:04 PM PST by Cindy
SNIPPET: "While these various elements of the jihadist network are distinct, the Internet brings them together, especially at the grassroots level. Videos, websites and online magazines indoctrinate aspiring militants in the jihadist ideology and provide a forum for like-minded individuals and groups."

USA vs Dotcom et al [Megaupload]
SNIPPET: If youre going to continue to engage in a criminal venture even after you know that the US Department of Justice is actively investigating you, you might want to think twice about continuing to use email to plan how you will circumvent the law.
“Cyber : MegaUpload and, the other media”

SNIPPET: “What a busy day on the Internet.
Megaupload has been an endless source for media from As-Sahab, al-Furqan, Global Islamic Media Front, Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Shabaab, and and the likes.”
“Poor Reza [it’s a social network disease]”

SNIPPET: “Reza has caught a case of the Yahoodi Cooties.”
SNIPPET: “Reza for his part is talking tough, and seems to think I’m an idiot. What he has failed to consider is that getting him and his friends to talk was one of the objectives of this exercise. And I’m not actually an idiot.”

SNIPPET: “Don’t think these bastards are all in Iran, or that all who are in Iran are untouchable.”
“The IRGC’s cyber soldiers and their fat paychecks”
(January 8, 2012)
SNIPPET: “In scanning the various Persian reports and blog posts about this issue some familiar names come up, including Cyber Hizballah, Hizballah Cyber Army, and the Coordinating Council for Islamic Revolution Cyber Activists.
Not only are these guys being paid excessively high wages, but they are being paid to hangout on the Internet that is considered too sinful for ordinary Iranians to be allowed access to. Their funding coming from the IRGC, there is evidently little if any oversight regarding the size of the budget and what it is being spent on.”

Danish citizen arrested in Morocco, terror charges
(Posted February 8, 2012)
SNIPPET: Kafapresse (Arabic) names him Thami Najib, but an educated guess would point to the following Facebook account, which belongs to a high level member of Danish Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
SNIPPET: And our boy identifies with Anonymous Morocco

“OOPS, MY FACEBOOK FRIEND JUST JOINED AQ”
SNIPPET: “Cabdulaahi Ahmed Faarax has a lot of friends on Facebook. More than 400 in fact. So what will those friends — many of whom live in the United States — do now that Al Shabab, the Somali militant organization to which Faarax belongs — has officially merged with Al Qaeda?
It’s not like they shouldn’t have known already. Al Shabab is, after all, a designated terrorist entity and dozens of Americans have been indicted for various activities on Shabab’s behalf. And the organization’s leaders already publicly swore allegiance to Osama bin Laden and after him, Ayman Al Zawahiri. “

SNIPPET: “Reckless doesn’t mean not dangerous.
Quite the opposite. They may fail spectacularly, or be wildly successful. One thing I believe we can count on is that they will take risks, act swiftly, and burn as many assets as they have to along the way in order to do what Khamenei wants.”
