Jihadists Broaden Reach by Launching English-Language Forums, Blogs

Written by Memri


From MEMRI, December 4, 2007 No.1777
As part of their efforts to reach and influence non-Arabic-speaking audiences, Islamists have set up English-language pages on existing Arabic-language forums, and have also launched jihadist blogs in English. [1]
An examination of the content of these forum pages and blogs suggests that they are aimed at various audiences in the West, inter alia to influence Western public opinion on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, to enlist support for jihad among Muslims living in the West, and even to encourage these Muslims to carry out martyrdom operations.  Please Click here to read Memri's report and see examples of these blogs.
