Electronic Jihad

An excellent piece from the Jamestown Foundation on the rising call for electronic attacks in the name of jihad.

With the proliferation of other terrorist activity on the internet, this seems entirely logical to me. Plus, the meme already exists for malicious hacking, as it has been getting increasingly popular for some time now.
Individuals and organizations learn they can get a significant return of investment on internet attacks, without much initial investment to begin with. Identity Theft is a very good example of this, but denial of service attacks as a method of systems disruption would also be easily conducted, effective, measures.
