For Those Who Say the Internet Jihad is No Big Deal

This is a brief post to those who have downplayed the importance of the cyber jihad. I hope it illustrates the connection between cyber jihadis and real terrorists who kill.

Earlier today a Jawa Report reader--someone who the New York Times might flippantly call an "online vigilante"--- came across some disturbing images at an Islamist forum. There were several Google Earth images of a town in Iraq. The images were detailed enough that you could see the buildings and even vehicles.

The images showed the location of U.S. and Iraqi troops and police. Each compound was circled in bright red with a description of what went on inside.

Do you still want to argue that the cyber jihad is no big deal?
