MEMRI is announcing the launch of its Global Jihad News (GJN) website, which will cover news and developments on jihad affairs, including coverage of terror attacks as well as regularly updated information about individuals, groups, and countries. The GJN will also be the central repository of MEMRI and MEMRI TV reports dealing with jihad and terrorism, and will provide short summaries and excerpts from MEMRI reports.
In addition, the Global Jihad News website will carry the latest information on bombings and attacks from throughout the region, such as the January 1 bombing of a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt. For example, the GJN page features video from jihadist websites of the attack, as well as a report on a fatwa issued one day before the attack by an influential jihadist cleric permitting such actions.
As a GJN subscriber, you will have access to information that you will not find anywhere else – and you will read it before the mainstream media reports it.
The Global Jihad News page is a supplement to MEMRI’s Jihad & Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) project. Since its launch in 2008, the JTTM project has been scrutinizing Islamist terrorism worldwide, with a special focus on the Arab world, Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. By monitoring strategic, tactical, ideological, military, and conventional and non-conventional threats to public safety and security – both imminent and potential – as well as threats to crucial interests and assets of states targeted by terrorism, the JTTM enables those under threat to effectively address and confront these threats. With its constant and ongoing examination of threats posed both by independent terror organizations and by state-sponsored terrorism, the JTTM translates and analyzes material from sources monitored around the clock – among them the 100 most important Islamist sites and blogs.
