Islamic terrorist networks are using online gambling websites to launder money for attacks

Security analysts have disclosed that Islamic terrorist organizations are using online gambling websites to launder money for attacks on the West. According to Telegraph.co.uk, computer experts in al-Qaeda have created an "online University of Jihad" that is recruiting and training potential terrorists in Britain without them having to risk travelling to camps in Pakistan.

The target audience for this organization is a 17 year old male who has never been in battle but is intrigued by the ideas of al-Qaeda and wants to feel a part of something. Moderate Muslims are encouraged to report any suspicious activity on the forums or gambling sites to the authorities.

I am not quite sure why this is surprising. We in the US have been screaming bloody murder about this for years now, and are awaiting the rest of the global community to jump on board the "Online Gambling is a Tool for Money Laundering" bandwagon. Until we, collectively, act in unison, this activity will continue.
