Information on Marketing Terrorism
The Palestinian and Islamic terrorist organizations make extensive use of the written and electronic media to market and encourage terrorism. Every organization has its own media developed to market terrorism. They have radio and TV stations, newspapers and online capabilities. Hamas and Hezbollah are prominent in the field and have satellite TV channels. Al-Qaeda also has a well-developed media network.

The terrorist organizations around the globe have become adept at using the information revolution of the past decade and make massive use of the Internet to market terrorism. They can market terrorism without fear of censorship, using laws of freedom of expression, overcome geographic obstacles and circumvent the difficulties raised by various governments. Using the Internet to market terrorism enables them to achieve many objectives. They explain and justify their terrorist activities, collect and transmit information, increase their organizing capabilities, glorify their image, recruit and instruct operatives, etc.
