    Australian Wildfires Could Fuel 'Forest Jihad' Terrorists, Experts Say
    Terrorism experts suspect Muslim extremists are watching closely, too — and taking note of the devastation.

    While Australian authorities have revealed no evidence linking the wildfires to extremists, terrorism experts say the large death toll, the huge swath of destruction and the massive financial blow to the country are proving to Islamic terrorists that arson can be a highly effective — and simple — tool of holy war.

    In November, an extremist Web site called on Muslims to launch a "forest jihad" in Australia, Europe, Russia and the United States. The posting, which quoted imprisoned Al Qaeda terrorist Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, said setting forest fires was legal under "eye-for-an-eye" Islamic law.

    "Scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels' forests when they do the same to our lands," the posting read.
