Thabaat and Ribaat forums are dead

Thabaat hosted part of the web presence of Joey Cohen alias Youssef al-Khattab, a New York cab driver and narcissistic punk who busies himself applauding Sunni Islamist terrorism in English, and Samir Z. Khan, a similar punk, also in the USA. But Thabaat also had a sinister Dutch-language component that was in communication with the Islamic Jihad Union and other Pakistan-based Saudi-funded components of al-Qa'ida.

The venerable Francophone al-Qa'ida site Ribaat alias Mourabitoune now goes to the "World of Islam" link collection, whose elements include some serious sites plus some very crude and dishonest ones like Jihad Unspun and Islam Memo.
