UK: Poverty breeds 007 Terrorism

* The old myth that poverty somehow breeds terrorism is one again being debunked: another child of privilege, a diplomats son, was Al Qaeda’s top cyber terrorist. Hacking into government websites and spreading jihad prop around the globe: Younes Tsouli, 23, an IT student at a London college who became infamous as “Irhabi 007,” working with Al Qaeda to develop a worldwide internet network of constantly shifting web sites.

Younes Tsouli, 23, an IT student at a London college, used his top-floor flat in W12 to help Islamist extremists wage a propaganda war against the West.

Under the name Irhabi 007 — combining the James Bond reference with the Arabic for terrorist — he worked with al Qaeda leaders in Iraq and came up with a way to convert often gruesome videos into a form that could be put onto the Web.


Key role: Younes Tsouli waged war against the West on his computer

Videos he posted included messages from Osama bin Laden and images of the kidnapping and murder of hostages in Iraq such as American Nick Berg.

His capture led to the arrest of several Islamic terrorists around the world, including 17 men in Canada and two in the US.

Credit Cards and Terrorists

By Dennis Lormel

As Imam Samudra sits on death row in Indonesia nearing his execution date for masterminding the Bali Nightclub Bombings in 2002, we should remember him not just as a murderous terrorist but also as a technology savvy computer expert. It’s in that latter role we should be concerned about his legacy. He is a poster child for the epidemic credit fraud terrorists confront us with. The magnitude of this problem was reinforced by Younes Tsouli, also known as (aka) Irhabi or Terrorist 007,and his two associates, Waseem Mughal and Tariq Al-Daour. These three al-Qaeda linked individuals pled guilty in the United Kingdom (U.K.) on July 2, 2007, to inciting terrorist murder via the internet. Like Samudra, they did not merely use the internet as a terrorist propaganda, communications and recruitment tool; they masterfully used it as a mechanism to perfect their cyber fraud skills. We should be extremely concerned by this. It is a threat to our National Security.

  1. I get so tired of the word ‘islamic’.

    Let me see – what is an islamic? Well, they are muslims. So, why all of a sudden are we using the word ‘islamic’? To distinguish between the violent ones and the non-violent ones? The jihadists vs the non-jihadists? Well, if one reads the koran – they are just muslims doing their duty to their allah and the ‘moderates’ are to support them because they are the holy ones.

    Shirk is the only sin of a muslim – all else is a-ok.

    Muhammad explained that the “blood of a Muslim…cannot be shed except in three cases: in Qisas [retaliation] for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims.” So adultery, apostasy and revenge are the only justifications for taking a life. Verses 153 and 161 repeat that Islam is the straight path. Koran – the Chapter called ‘Cattle’.

  2. oh – I should have explained this a little further – ‘Qisas [retaliation] for murder’ That only means if a muslim murders another muslim for no reason (say, collateral damage while killing, or trying to kill, kufir).

  3. Yeah, Bin Loser sure is poor, being part of Saudi Arabia’s biggest contruction company. I can see why he’s a terrorist.
