Since I cannot get ahold of the video, is there any reason to doubt whether the words attributed to Araji are actually his (e.g., the audio is mis-matched with the video)?

Are the videos frequently used to discredit opponents -- since Araji's alleged statements in the video contradict the statements he made to McClatchey's reporter?


The video looked pretty authentic to me, he looked like he was saying what I heard him saying, but I'm no expert on that technical authentication stuff.

This raises a good question and a tough one - I don't know how to make these videos available to interested people without actually hosting them, at which point I would actually be disseminating jihadi videos with all the attendant complications. Linking to the jihadi forums directly is not something I like to do anymore, for various reasons. Maybe I could upload them to YouTube or something, but then it's back to being a conduit for the videos. Any suggestions?


Several years ago I was working in in a country with poor laboratory services and we often had to carry over patient samples (blood, sputum) to be analyzed in U.S. laboratories. At first we "smuggled" them in small icepacks, but after a while we got an NIH permit. After that it was a lot less stressful.

If someone wanted to host jihadi videos, he should probably set it up with DHS in advance, have a fairly strict registration protocol (permanent email addresses and affiliations), and note prominently that the IP addresses of people who use it are being monitored by the authorities etc. Sounds like a hassle to me, but someone might want to do it. If it weren't certain to give the Daniel Pipeses and Martin Kramers of the world something to pontificate about I'd say MESA should sponsor it.

Islam has been Hijacked from all of the Good muslims by the Religious Zeolot fundementalist terrorist pigs! and the worst part abou it, that Even Moderate and Normal muslims never speak up to condemn the stupidity and shame the jerkoff zeolts put on us.
