Islamist Rag Makes Campus Debut

The hardline-Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir recently launched its first magazine in Sydney to be distributed on university campuses. The plan for the publication, Idialogue, has terrorism experts concerned about the potential infiltration of universities by radical groups seeking recruits.
“It is precisely the tactic that Hizb ut-Tahrir used in the UK when they wanted to establish a jihadi network,” said Carl Ungerer, director of the national security project at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is not only targaeting Australia. The use of a magazine, Ungerer points out, is part of a global trend employed a “dissemination device,” as well as a revenue-raising tool.
