Debka.com writes that their sources allegedly picked up “a special Internet announcement” originating from “Osama bin Laden’s followers“. The message is said to be about an “electronic Jihad” supposedly actived at 11th November 2007:

On Day One, they will test their skills against 15 targeted sites expand the operation from day to day thereafter until hundreds of thousands of Islamist hackers are in action against untold numbers of anti-Muslim sites.

Roehr.com specifies several reasons why this announcement does not sound credible and concludes that it is nothing but a hoax:

I call this to be a hoax – a poor attempt by war lovers and anti-Muslims to “prove” the dangers of the Muslims. A PR stunt.

I tend to believe that Kaj’s arguments sound plausible enough. Ergo, it is rather a hoax than anything else.
