23/5/2011 Ongoing Threats to Coptic Churches in Egypt

ICT's Jihadi Websites Monitoring Group

The terrorist attack on the Al-Qiddissin church in Alexandria on January 1st 2011 marked a peak in the inter-religion tension between Muslims and Christians. The attack was preceded by many weeks of threats to carry out terrorist attacks against Christian targets around the world, particularly in Egypt. These threats by Salafi religious clerics permitting the shedding of Christian blood, as well as by official entities of Global Jihad, received extensive coverage and garnered a lot of reaction after they were posted on the Jihadi forums. In October 2010, the “Islamic State of Iraq” organization went as far as explicitly threatening to carry out terrorist attacks against Coptic churches in Egypt.
Since the ousting of President Mubarak on February 11th 2011, a further escalation has been seen which threatens the delicate balance in the relationship between Muslims and Coptic Christians in Egypt. On May 7th 2011, at least 12 people were killed in bloody conflicts between Muslims and Coptic Christians in the Embaba neighborhood in Al-Giza, after a Coptic Church in the neighborhood was set ablaze.
The “Shabakat Al-Mujahideen Al-Electroniya” Jihadi forum, which has recently resumed operations after being inactive for several months, posted an explicit threat to attack Coptic churches on June 2nd 2011. “Asad Al-Islam”, the supervisor of the audio and visual publications department, wrote “A message to the Coptic pigs from the people of the Oneness of God in Al-Kinana [Jihadists' name for Egypt]”.


21/9/2010 Calls to Perpetrate Terror Attacks in Spain During September 2010

ICT's Jihadi Websites Monitoring Group

During the first half of September 2010, a call appeared on the “Atahadi” Jihadi forum, made by one of the surfers to the members of the forum, to attack nuclear installations, which are spread all over Spain, within the framework of what he terms the “Andalus Invasion”.
The responses to this call were diverse. Some of the surfers praised the idea, but others expressed their reservations, stating that attacking the nuclear installations could harm the Mujahideen themselves.
In response to this posting, one of the surfers wrote that such an attack would have to be perpetrated no later than the 24 September 2010. He also proposed, as an additional or alternative target, to attack Barcelona, as this city has very convenient transport, particularly the metro.

ICT's Jihadi Websites Monitoring Group

During the first week of April 2010, several Jihadi forums provided links for the downloading of the fifth issue of the “Al-Mushtaqun Ila Al-Jannah” Jihadi Magazine. The magazine contains a two page article by Ubada bin Al-Samit, titled “The Global Qaidat Al-Jihad organization at the 2010 World Cup”. The author wishes that Al-Qaeda will operate at the World Cup, and especially against teams representing the countries taking part in the “Zionist-Crusader campaign on Islam”.
