Palestinian Salafi-Jihadi Website Shuts Down after Being Hacked; Warns against Appearance of Fake Websites Using Its Name

November 22, 2010

The Palestinian Salafi-Jihadi website Jaljalat recently shut down. Its first page – the only part still accessible – now bears a message from the management explaining that, after being hacked by “the leaders of heresy and their helpers,” the site has decided to suspend its activity until further notice. The message stresses that, when the site decides to renew its activity, it will post an official announcement to this effect on the official jihad websites, “in the official and customary ways,” and warns that if a site bearing its name appears without being preceded by such an announcement, it is not authentic, but a decoy created by hostile elements.
