Beirut just added Cyberterrorists to the list of terrorist who use it as a safe haven. This poor city never learned how to turn away a twisted mind or an ugly face.

Ibtekarat (translates into: Inventions) - A web hosting company based in Beirut was mentiond in an article about cyberwarfare (Inormation Week). The article lists this company as a host for Al-Jinan domain used by Islamic Jihadists and cyber terrorists to spread bomb making information and Electronic Jihad programs to teach other Jihadists how to target certain IPs (sites that they don't like) for attacks.

You name the terror, you're very likely to find it in Beirut!

Ever thought that perhaps they don't have adequate internet connections in those tight ass countries? Of course they would base the server in Lebanon because compared to the other countries, it is alot better service. I once made a cruel joke at this Syrian friend of mine who was visiting the Middle East.. Syria, Jordan, Lebanon etc... and she got on MSN saying "Heyyyyyyy guess where I am?"
To which I replied, "Okay, well judging by the fact that you are on the internet, using electricity...hmmm that places you in....Lebanon"

And I was right of course, but the reasoning wasn't so correct lol
