Jihad videos on GWU servers

The New Yorker:

From a very long article on The Terrorist Web, in reference to the March 11 train bombings in Spain and subsequent capitulation of the Spaniards to terror, an interesting reference to George Washington University:

"The Internet jihadis now cover themselves by stealing unguarded server space. Jihad videos have recently been discovered on servers belonging to George Washington University and the Arkansas Department of Highways and Transportation. "

Stealing unguarded server space? NPR once had a feature that noted that 10% of the student population at George Washington University is Muslim. I wouldn't be surprised if the videos were posted using IDs and passwords issued by GWU.

Islamic groups hit curriculum at ISA - The Washington Times: Metropolitan - August 02, 2004

Islamic groups hit curriculum at Saudi school - The Washington Times: Metropolitan - August 02, 2004

I had previously noted the Islamic Saudi Academy's decision not to build another campus in Loudon County in the July 8, 2004 posting on Northern Virginiastan. Now comes news that Alexandria lawyer and politician Kamal Nawash and CAIR - of all organizations - are urging ISA to withdraw a textbook from its curriculum. Read Robert Spencer's desconstruction of this effort at Jihad Watch.

The Washington Times notes that Nawash's law firm once represented Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi (AKA Abdurahman Alamoudi) and that Nawash unsuccessfully ran for political office on two occasions. Nawash blamed his most recent political defeat on the attention focused on him through Daniel Pipes' weblog.
