Yet another indication of the emerging trend of building a knowledge-driven cyber jihadist community, are such online archives with localized to Arabic standard security and hacking research papers, ones you definitely came across to before, or may have in fact written by yourself. As I've already discussed this trend in previous posts, it's a PSYOPS strategy in action, one that's aiming to improve the overall perception of cyber jihadists' ability to wage their battles without using software and web services of their enemies. Whether the investment in time and resources is worth it is another topic, what's worth pointing out are the efforts they put into localizing the content in between adding the standard propaganda layer, and later on, building a community around it.
