Online GIMF Jihadi Had Thousands of Propaganda Videos

Wait, you mean that after watching thousands of hours of jihadist propaganda, that one might actually be tempted to become a terrorist?

Said Namouh, known by the online jihad community as "Nashraf", was the Canadian face of the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF), a group we've been keeping tabs on for some time. While not officially a front for al Qaeda, GIMF independently produces videos in support of the global jihad in a variety of languages. The group also raises money for al Qaeda.

Ottawa Citizen:

The national security squad of the RCMP seized thousands of explicit terrorist videos from Sad Namouh's computer after he was arrested in Quebec on a charge of conspiring to detonate an explosive.

The 34-year-old Moroccan-born permanent resident of Canada allegedly planned with Mohammed Mahmoud, 21, an Austrian, and other people whose names have not been made public, to detonate an explosive in a public place "to cause death, serious injury or massive destruction."

As we've noted over and over again, Mohammed Mahmoud is a known online associate of Charlotte, North Carolina blogger Samir Khan. How do we know?
