Al-Qaeda Website Resurfaces
By SITE Institute
Published in: SITE Institute
March 23, 2003

The SITE Institute has been able to track down the new location of the ?Al-Neda? website, which after a brief period offline, has resurfaced on a server based in Michigan that al-Qaeda has hacked. As the SITE Institute reported yesterday, the main al-Qaeda controlled website had been hacked by the U.S. government in an effort to dismantle communication between terrorist operatives who might use the site as a means to coordinate attacks. Al-Neda is the website for the Center for Islamic Studies and Research, the mouthpiece of al-Qaeda. The government has tried several times to shut down the website, but with limited success. Al-Neda is at most offline for a few days, before being transferred to another unsuspecting server. One of al-Qaeda?s most important websites, it regularly issues the al-Qaeda leadership?s latest communiqués, exhorts individuals to violence, and disseminates other vitriolic propaganda. New posts on the website invite people to retaliate against American targets, justifying terrorist attacks on the war in Iraq. There are links to the latest images of the war, including graphic pictures of casualties. Another new post maintains that a significant al-Qaeda attack that the group has been promising for some time will occur in the near future. For more information on the website, please contact the SITE Institute.
