This chapter begins with an overview of extremist websites. It identifies terrorist organizations worldwide that maintain websites; the typical content of these websites; and their target audience. It then discusses how extremist websites use the Internet. A major goal of these groups is to communicate, recruit, plan and coordinate, network, raise funds, gain publicity, and promote propaganda. One example of online content that employs many of these goals is the online magazine Inspire produced by al-Qaeda supporters.

Keywords:   Internet, social media, extremist websites, extremist groups, al-Qaeda
