ABSTRACT

The current research is a part of a broader investigation on patterns of political involvement of Diaspora Internet communities. The study has compared the Internet content of three religious groups (Muslim, Jewish and Sikh) with an attempt to reveal certain cultural and religious codes that bring the potential terrorists to use the Internet as a tool for mobilization and coordination of their actions.
