In an interview on cyber jihad, he stated: “I see no problem in destroying and hacking anti-Islam websites which are totally against Islam, such as Israeli websites.”

In answer to a follow-up question regarding the permissibility of hacking infidels’ websites, he answered that if these sites call for apostasy and are against Islam, it is all right to destroy them.
