CYBERTERRORISMO - e-Jihad, la guerra santa elettronica
La guerra degli hacker è già oggi parte regolare dei conflitti regionali, religiosi, etnici, dal Medio Oriente a Taiwan. I contendenti lanciano attacchi ai siti avversari. Un gruppo definitosi Pakistani Hackerz Club, per esempio, ha recentemente colpito il sito dell’American Israel Public Affairs Committee rimpiazzando l’home page della potente lobby filoebraica con frasi anti Israele. Gli stessi pakistani, inoltre, si sono inseriti nel database del sito, impossessandosi del numero di carta di credito dei settecento sostenitori e inviandoli via mail a 3500 membri dell’Aipac per vantarsi del loro exploit.

Arab Information Project
We are studying the social, cultural, economic and political life of advanced communication and information technologies in the Middle East and in the "Middle Easts" overseas.

Internet and the State: The Rise of Cyberdemocracy in Revolutionary Iran
It was not long ago, in the not so long history of information and communication technology (ICTs), that the Internet was hailed as an emerging new democratic medium to undermine authoritarian regimes. Whether considering the increase in competence of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) on a global scale or the effect of information on local politics, cyberspace, understood as a digitally constituted means of communication, provided an exciting new frontier where political power manifested itself in a radical democratic way.
The Spatial Politics of Leisure: Internet Use and Access in Tehran, Iran
A regular column featured in the now-defunct liberal Iranian newspaper, Azadegan, written by Hossein Derakhshian, focused on the Internet. It was a combination of answers to questions and reports of technological developments, but occasionally addressed social points as well. These social points included concerns over economic stagnation, language constraints, and the lack of Internet availability outside of Tehran (Azadegan, January 11, 2000:9, and January 15, 2000:9). In one column in particular, Derakhshian wrote coyly, "Have you ever thought about the connection between this Internet column and the Politics page? The less said on this topic the better...." (Azadegan, January 3, 2000) Without saying anything directly, Derakhshian was alluding to the complex politics of Internet use in contemporary Iranian society.

Muslim Networks, Muslim Selves in Cyberspace: Islam in the Post-Modern Public Sphere
Anderson Jon W.
This paper examines how Muslim presences have emerged on the Internet and the role of religion - specifically, Islam - in this sphere. The paper looks beyond demographic expansion to its more social characteristics. Three stages or phases of this emergence may be identified: much as technological adepts were followed by officializing strategies, those in turn have been overtaken and surpassed in using the Internet by activist but distinctly moderate Islam, for which the Internet seems peculiarly congenial.
