SNIPPET: "MADRID Spanish police on Tuesday arrested a suspected member of Al Qaeda who was key to the terror group's Internet propaganda and recruiting operations, officials said.
The suspect arrested in the eastern city of Valencia "administered one of the world's most important jihadist forums", dedicated to recruiting and indoctrinating Islamic terrorists, Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said.
The name of that forum and the suspect's name were not given, only his initials, M.H.A. He is Jordanian-born with Saudi citizenship."
SNIPPET: "The suspect worked at home "8 to 15 hours a day" for al-Qaida and for two offshoots, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the minister said."

SNIPPET: Mudhar Hussein Almalaki, el cabecilla islamista detenido esta semana por la Guardia Civil en Valencia, había propuesto a Al-Qaida asesinar al expresidente José María Aznar y al exsecretario general de la OTAN Javier Solana como castigo por los crímenes cometidos contra los musulmanes.
SNIPPET: El pasado 22 de marzo, dentro de las webs y foros yihadistas que controlaba también hizo exaltación del Mohamed Merah, el asesino de Toulouse.
Almalaki, según la Guardia Civil, además distribuyó entre más de 70.000 usuarios de la web manuales sobre ataques terroristas y envenenamientos masivos.

The story identifies MHA as Mudhar Hussein Almalaki, and notes Almalakis involvement in the infamous Hit List that was developed on the al-Shmukh forum and copied over to the Ansar al-Mujahideen Arabic forum. For background on that see:

SNIPPET: “There are some good reasons for allowing at least a few jihadi forums to operate.”
SNIPPET: “However, there are limits to our ability to exploit all the intelligence opportunities a forum may present. To put it another way, jihadi forums contribute to future terrorism in ways that are unpredictable and/or beyond our ability to control. This would be the view held by those other government agencies who prefer to seek out and destroy forums and to take down forum activists.
For my part, I can live with keeping online those forums we have sufficient access to monitor and resources to manage. Having said that, a few topics occur on jihadi forums from time to time that should not be tolerated. One is weapons of mass destruction, by which I mean CBRN not Federal statutory WMD. Another is assassination, specifically discussions whose express purpose is the nomination of candidates for assassination, and the collection and dissemination of information about the proposed targets.”
SNIPPET: “In it dozens of individuals are marked for death. Targets include the executives of a number of American defense contractors, some European billionaires, and a reasonable sampling of Jews and other Zionists and/or Neo-Cons, among others. Also targeted is the entire civilian and military leadership of the US Department of Defense, as illustrated by this:
The red line having been crossed, what is to be done?”

You’re welcome Sunken Civ.
Thank God we like the music.
How dare they!
Need the clapping hands crowd...anyone?
I'll bet when they caught him he was Andelus!
Or am I being Andelusianal?
If you need an explanation, you don't belong here.
With any luck he’ll lead to the take down of more of his kind.
I agree and I hope that it will happen.

“In search of al-Qaida’s naughty librarian [Muhdar Hussein Almalki]”
SNIPPET: “The indictment of Almalki is available here:
It includes his known online aliases, but they are transliterated from Arabic to Spanish, so they need to be re-rendered as Arabic.
A quick search through my jihadi forum archives for occurrences of one of his aliases, Sami123, returned over 1,500 records.”
