Western Jihadists

SITE’s Western Jihadists service provides vital information about the process by which online recruitment takes place in western countries, including location, motivation, demographics, and information about well-known jihadi recruiters.
The service includes summaries and analyses of significant discussions and information found on selected Western-oriented jihadi forums and social media platforms. The service regularly covers threats and incitements, as well as conversations and artifacts revealing recruitment appeals, migration methods, and other important information not typically included in official jihadist communications. The full spectrum of jihadi and terrorist groups operating in western countries are covered, including: ISIS, AQ, along with their affiliated western groups and media outlets in Syria, Iraq and other locations. (e.g.: AlRisalah Media, GIMF, Furat Media)

Jihadist forum members discussed the role of Western Muslims in the global jihad and exchanged motivational quotes, among them a sentiment attributed to slain Yemen-American jihadist ideologue Anwar al-Awlaki that Muslims in the West have the option to either join with jihadist groups around the world or follow the lead of Nidal Hasan and carry out an attack in their home countries.
