Jihadism on the web

In the past decade a wide variety of counter-terrorist measures and actions have been taken to ensure that jihadist organisations are left with fewer possibilities to target the West. Nonetheless, the appeal of the jihadist ideologies adhered to by these organisations remains as great as ever.

These ideologies continue to inspire and incite particularly young Muslims worldwide to violence. The Internet has become the most important medium for the dissemination of these ideologies.
