Islamist Websites and Their Hosts Part I: Islamist Terror
Organizations
By Marie-Hélène Boccara*

Introduction

The post September 11 war on terrorism has increased Islamist
organizations' dependence on the Internet, making it a vital means of
communication and indoctrination for both Islamist organizations and
for the infrastructure of Al-Qa'ida supporters. As a result of
Islamist websites often being tracked and in some cases hacked, or
shut down by their Internet Service Providers (ISPs), the Islamist
organizations have also become increasingly dependent on chat rooms
and message boards for communication.

The following list of 25 Islamist websites and message forums, the
first in a series of reports, includes website affiliations, IP
addresses, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and information about
their registrants. [1] The entries are categorized by ISP location.

The IP addresses and hosts included in the list were valid as of July
16, 2004. [2]
