Website Hosted By NJ Company

I guess Samir Khan's "How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" isn't reaching enough jihadis?


On April 21, 2013, the Salafi-jihadi website Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad (MTJ) posted a fatwa encouraging the dissemination on jihadi forums of content relating to the manufacture of explosives.

The fatwa, by Sheikh Abu Mundhir Al-Shinqiti, was issued in response to a query by reader "'Omar Al-Dalimi" about the home manufacture of explosives. Claiming to be a member of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), Al-Dalimi asked if he was permitted to publish via "the brothers' forums," that is, jihadi forums, some exclusive content in his possession pertaining to the manufacture of explosives.

Al-Dalimi said that his content was sought after by other forum members for the purpose of jihad, but that he was concerned that if such content was posted openly on jihadi forums, other undesirable members, who he says are Shi'ites, could also access it and benefit from it. Al-Shinqiti responded by encouraging Al-Dalimi to disseminate his content freely over jihadi forums so that the "mujahideen and their supporters everywhere can benefit from it."

It is noteworthy that the MTJ is hosted by Interserver.net, which according to its website is a New Jersey company located at 110 Meadowlands Parkway, Suite 100, Secaucus, NJ 07094. The toll-free office number is 1-877-566-8398, and regular office number 1-201-605-1440.

Following is Al-Dalimi's question, followed by Al-Shinqiti's answer:

Six days after the Boston Marathon Bombing and this is published on a website hosted by a US company.

Surprising? Nope, not at all.
