Al-Qaida number two leader Ayman al-Zawahiri's video statement about President-elect Obama, 19 Nov. 2008
The world's financial crisis appears to have energized Islamic militants and their supporters.

Al-Qaida spokesman Adam Gadahn released a video last month saying the terror network hopes to use the financial crisis to inflict a "crushing defeat" on what he calls the "enemies of Islam."

"In terms of al-Qaida's propaganda,投诉频发 莫让售后服务拖了家电下乡后腿-搜狐数, for at least the past six years - they have constantly hit on the issue that they will bankrupt us. So, consequently they see recent global economic events as providing proof of the effectiveness of their strategy. That may be completely divorced from reality, but, unfortunately, propaganda does not have to be true to be believed," he said.

On one Web site monitored by the U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group,晚间新闻, a user says, "now is a golden opportunity. If America is hit now, it will never survive,Tag Heuer Kirium, unless God permits it."










Hoffman, of Georgetown, says al-Qaida also has become skillful at moving money around without relying on bank transfers. 

"There is not much taking credit for it, but there is a lot of, 'this is what America and the West has brought upon itself - this is God's retribution on the West," he said.

Levitt believes Western nations will not cut back on anti-terrorism efforts during the economic crisis because the primary responsibility of government is to safeguard its citizens.

Levitt says the West should do more to combat what many analysts call al-Qaida's increasingly sophisticated propaganda machine.

"It is also what I think al-Qaida counts upon, that in an era of global economic downturn,Mont Blanc Sport Lady, that inevitably the worldwide struggle against terrorism may be clawed back, and that this may provide al-Qaida with exactly the breathing space and the opportunity to further consolidate its revival, and carry on its terrorist campaign," he said.

Groups that monitor terrorist Internet traffic have seen a flurry of messages on al-Qaida-linked Web sites that gloat over the West's economic difficulties, and urge militants to take advantage.

Hoffman says countries combatting al-Qaida should not let the financial crisis pressure them into cutting spending on counterterrorism. 

Analysts say al-Qaida appears to be trying to capitalize on the global economic crisis. They say traffic on al-Qaida-linked Web sites indicates terrorist sympathizers see the financial turmoil as punishment for al-Qaida's enemies. VOA's Michael Lipin has this report from Washington.

"We do need to get more involved in the battle of ideas, and we do need to be much more focused on shutting down the radicalization portals, whether they are online or elsewhere, and getting our message out...frankly, of all the counterterrorism operations and activities we are engaged in, this is where we are weakest," he said.

Terrorism expert and professor Bruce Hoffman of Georgetown University in Washington says al-Qaida has long sought to destroy the West's way of life, rather than try to win a conventional war. 

They say al-Qaida also profits from its affiliation with Afghanistan's Taliban movement, which raises tens of millions of dollars annually from illegal production and export of opium.

Matthew Levitt of the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Affairs agrees that al-Qaida is using the financial crisis as a propaganda tool.

Both analysts say al-Qaida has not suffered financially in the current economic crisis, because the group continues to draw funding from wealthy donors.
