An Israeli expert on terrorism received an unexpected endorsement on a Web site linked to al-Qaida. Haifa University announced this week that references to a book by faculty member Gabi Weimann had appeared on alfirdaws.org, a Web site favored by followers of Osama bin Laden’s international terrorist network. A comment posted on the site said Weimann’s book, “Terror on the Internet: The New Arena, The New Challenges,” demonstrates that “the Western amazement at the success of our terrorist brethren’s Internet use inspired them to write.” Weimann voiced surprise at the mention.
