Economic Jihad

No surprise, really, Jihadist terror organizations have set economic terrorism as their new target. They intend to paralyze Western economies, the United Sates in particular, claims Prof. Gabriel Weimann at the University of Haifa. Prof. Weimann monitored websites hosted by terrorist and terrorism-supporting organizations and concludes: “For the Jihadists, the present economic crisis signifies an ideal opportunity and platform to leverage a economic terrorist campaign.”

Over a number of years, Prof. Weimann surveyed public and encoded websites run by Islamic terrorist organizations, forums, video clips, and practically all the information related to Islamic Jihad terrorism that is flowing through the network.
