Internet Jihad Update by Jackelyn Barnard for First Coast News:
JACKSONVILLE, FL– It’s a video showing a room full of children sharing their dreams. They are not excited about being doctors, lawyers or teachers. Instead, the children shout, “We are the nation of Hezbollah. I shall sacrifice my life for Allah.”
A group of children in training to be a mujahideen, or holy warrior. [Actually mujahedin is plural — RS]
Online there are videos of those warriors. One suicide bomber announces he is readying himself to blow up a group of American soldiers.
The video goes on for eight minutes and even shows the explosion. In the background are cheers from those taking the pictures.
The video is just some of the many the First Coast News I-team found on the internet from sites like Youtube and Myspace.
“I think right now we are a ticking time bomb,” says Tom Hayden, a retired Lt. Col Marine, who is also a counter terrorism expert.
Hayden says some of the videos, while disturbing, are online for a reason.
“Something like myspace, probably the most well known, popular website right now, it’s even being used to transmit messages,” says Hayden.
He says there are messages left on the internet for those recruited to carry out another 9/11 type attack. Hayden says those Jihad soldiers are getting messages in chat rooms and on message boards.
