Heh: Ansar Mujahideen English Forum Run by Dutch Muslims

Well, you learn something new every day. Islam in Europe has the English translation of a Telegraaf expose of our old friends:

Ansar Al Mujahideen one of the most important propaganda mouthpieces of al-Qaeda worldwide - is carefully watched by security services, also in the Netherlands. Sources confirm that the website is not only facilitated by the Dutch, but also financed in the Netherlands. The website publicizes official announcements by al-Qaeda.

Intelligence sources confirm that the English part of the website is run by a dozen Dutch Muslim extremists, including several women. Those Dutch members were formerly the driving force behind the now-defunct Dutch extremist website Thabaat, which was tried to members of the Hofstad Group.

Interesting. And the Samir Khan, Inspire magazine connection?
The secret services are concerned about the increasing use of Dutch on the site, which is responsible for publishing the 'Inspire' Jihad magazine, in which al-Qaeda recently took responsibility for sending bomb-packages from Yemen.

In the last three editions of the Jihadist magazine, intelligence servcies saw indications that Dutch were also responsible for the composition. Geert Wilders was threatened in teh second edition of Inspire.

READ THE REST. Just some food for thought for AMEF watchers ....

UPDATE: Aaron has background information on Thabaat here. I'll also remind readers that one of the many iteration's of the Inshallashaheed blog was located on Thaabat.
