Internet Jihadis Respond to OBL's Call

Members of militant Islamist Internet forums immediately responded to the call made by al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in his last audio statement Saturday to distribute certain jihadi literature among youths throughout the Muslim world.

There were dozens of postings containing download links for all the book titles specified by Bin Laden in his tape.

Bin Laden had specifically mentioned a certain website to download the books from.

The website is run by a Jordanian jihadi scholar, called Abu Mohammed al Maqdisi, who was the mentor of slain al Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Musab al Zarqawi.
