Al-Qaeda site posts Israeli book
Jihad website refers to book written by Haifa University professor discussing role net plays in terrorism
A book written by an Israeli professor has been posted on an al-Qaeda affiliated website.

 

Professor Gabriel Weimann of Haifa University's Communications Department was surprised to find a picture of the cover of his book, 'Terror on the Internet: The New Arena, the New Challenges,' and links to its summaries, on a global Jihad organization's website.

 

"At first it seemed quite strange to me that they would publish my book," Weimann said Sunday, "but then when I read the text in Arabic I understood their motivation."

 

The caption read, "The West's astonishment at our terrorist brothers' use of the internet has led them to write a book."

 

"The paradox is that this organization that goes against the progress of the West is using its most advanced tool as a weapon," added Weimann.
