Many anti-American jihadist Web sites are hosted by servers in the United
States, an Israeli expert said this week.
"Islam makes great use of the Internet," Yigal Carmon, president of the
Middle East Media Research Institute, a pro-Israel think tank in
Washington, told a press conference on Capitol Hill. Carmon previously
served as a senior intelligence official in the Israeli Defense Forces for
20 years and as a top counter-terrorism adviser to Israeli prime ministers
Yitzhak Shamir and Yitzhak Rabin.
Terrorists in all three of the recent botched terrorist attacks -- the
London car bombs, the JFK airport fuel line and the Fort Dix military base
in New Jersey -- were inspired by jihadist Web sites, according to MEMRI.
Carmon said that there are countless Web sites, like the one with a caption
atop its main page saying "Kill Americans everywhere," that are hosted by
American servers in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Texas, Minnesota, Washington
and New Jersey.
