    CAIRO: Images of dead, wounded and traumatized Russian children being carried from the scene of a rebel school siege have horrified the Arab world, prompting forthright self-criticism and fresh concern about an international backlash against Islam and its followers. Arab leaders, Muslim clerics and ordinary parents across the Middle East denounced the school siege as unjustifiable. Some warned such actions damage Islam's image more than all its enemies could hope. Even some supporters of Islamic militancy condemned it, though at least one insisted Muslims were not behind it. ``Holy warriors'' from the Middle East have long supported fellow Muslims fighting...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A top fund-raiser for an Islamic charity with alleged links to terrorism testified Monday he believed the donations were used only for humanitarian projects, and asked to be freed while he fights deportation. Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan, 44, a founder of a mosque in Anaheim, was arrested on immigration charges last month as federal authorities unsealed an indictment against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, charging the Texas-based charity funneled millions to the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Hamdan's detention has sparked protests by Southern California Muslims who see it as an unfair pressure tactic to get...

    Monday, November 18, 2002 HOMELAND INSECURITY Are 'jihadists' infiltrating U.S. military? Low-security positions could be used by potential terrorists By Jon Dougherty -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2002 A disturbing pattern of infiltration of lower levels of the U.S. military by would-be Islamist jihad warriors is emerging, cautions one analyst of military affairs and terrorism. The Defense Department heavily screens all personnel competing for high-security positions involving nuclear weapons and military intelligence. Before applicants are ever allowed inside those small elite circles, they are subjected to rigorous background and criminal checks, as well as comprehensive psychological evaluations. The reason is obvious: Only...

The AEJT seeks to bring down all Web...
