#1 Take a look: Sakina Security Service (via Alexa). Click around; it's mainly indistinguishable from a low-rent international security services firm. Then there's the "Ultimate Challenge" link:

THE ULTIMATE JIHAD CHALLENGE

THE ULTIMATE JIHAD CHALLENGE IS A TWO-WEEK COURSE IN OUR 1,000-ACRE STATE OF THE ART SHOOTING RANGE IN THE UNITED STATES. DUE TO THE FIREARMS LAW OF THE UK ALL SERIOUS FIREARMS TRAINING MUST BE DONE OVERSEAS.

Sakina security services provide an instructor development course for the students who want to make a career out of this specialist training.


I hesitate to characterize this as "terrorist training" solely on the above basis, without interviewing any "graduates", but it's the kind of thing that could easily serve as a cover (or even just a front).

#2 Whoa. I somehow missed the "Links" button, which clearly links to sites like "Jihad in Mindanao". That's good enough for me: talk about operating right in the open!

#3 There are two links buttons, one of which is busted - guess it goes to the decoys. The real one is the one in the upper right corner. It has not only the "Jihad in Minanao" link ("Abu Sayyaf need you"), but the "Hezb-e-Mughalstan," "Ayoh Jihad" (a click through to "Jihad in Chechnya"), a link to Harkat-ul-Mujaheddin (Kashmir Killer Korps), and Call of Islam - always such a pleasant read.

#4 Oh, almost forgot: the company bills itself as "Islamic threat management"...
