Terrorists Taking Up Cyberspace

Web sites have become inexpensive, easily accessible tools for giving
instructions to operatives and raising funds. The service providers for
some of these sites are based in the United States.

By CHARLES PILLER, Times Staff Writer

    A car bomb shattered storefronts in Netanya, a seaside resort town
in northern Israel, and wounded 60 diners and shoppers on the evening of
Jan. 1. There was one fatality--the bomber himself.
     The group behind this blast didn't call a TV station to claim
credit. Instead Hamas, the Palestinian organization that sponsors acts
of terror against Israel, posted a note on its Web site.
     It turns out that the Internet--inexpensive, open and accessible at
any time from anywhere--is an ideal tool for terrorists.
