Al-Qaeda widely used the Internet to effect social change, boosting fears or influencing political decisions. Terrorism on the Internet is a dynamic phenomenon. Through the internet Al-Qaeda intends to approach three audiences; potential supporters, international society and enemies. For mass media, policy makers and security agencies it is very difficult to use the Internet by terrorist organizations to monitor, partly because use is made of media strategies. There are several reasons why terrorists use the Internet. For instance internet is used for, fundraising, recruiting people, psychological warfare, propaganda and coordination of actions.
