Note to readers

September 21, 2013

WordPress, which hosts this blog, appears to have begun running small adds at the bottom of our posts.  Money Jihad does not know who these advertisers are, does not necessarily endorse their products or services, and receives zero share of advertising profits.

This blog has always existed without advertisements, sponsors, or donations; it is a labor of love.  Thanks to hundreds of thousands of readers, 300 subscribers, and 3,500 Twitter followers for joining in the fight to expose terrorist financing.


2011 in review

January 5, 2012

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 44,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Money Jihad blog’s first year

October 12, 2010

Happy birthday, Money Jihad!

Iran’s Mohammad Khatami helps us cut our halal birthday cake!

Money Jihad launched last year on October 12, and the time has flown by!  The blog has been viewed about 25,000 times and readership is still growing.  Thanks so much to all our readers, subscribers, our top referrers (The Religion of Peace, Creeping Sharia, Google, the Dutch website Het Vrije Volk, Jihad Watch for inspiring this blog, and to Shariah Finance Watch both for their support and for their own great work!).  And where would we be without top commenters like Puneet and Sadie?

Periodically we’ve shared site statistics about this blog’s most popular posts.  But on this occasion, maybe it would be better to look back and highlight some of the most overlooked, under-read posts of the year.  These are items that seemed pretty decent at the time, but received few or zero hits according to WordPress stats. 

Let’s just call them “the best of the worst,” and try to breathe some new life into these old bones.


Spreadin’ the word about Al Jihad bi-al-Mal

August 26, 2010

Take heart, dear reader.  You’re not alone in your concerns about the financial jihad against us.  You’re not the only one who wants to follow the money behind the Ground Zero Mosque.  You’re not the only one who wants to know where Al Qaeda gets its financing.  You’re not the only one who recognizes that the Islamists receive most of their funds through taxes mandated by Muhammad, and that Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s “jihad with money” must be resisted at every turn.  The jihadist is being unveiled.  The word is spreading.

As of this week, this blog has been viewed over 20,000 times.  Thank you, Money Jihad readers & referrers!  And thank you, WordPress, for providing nifty little charts and summaries like this:

Mild milestone

January 28, 2010

As of this evening, Money Jihad has been viewed over 4,000 times in the less than four months since we launched.  Thank you to all the readers!  It’s gratifying to see steady and growing readership.

But the best part is that as the word spreads, the lights are shining brighter and brighter on the darkness of terrorist financing.


A thousand and one views

November 11, 2009

Money Jihad blog exposes and explores how jihadists fund their operations.  This journey of discovery was launched, appropriately enough, on Columbus Day just one month ago.

So far, we have fewer posts than Scheherazade had stories, but WordPress’s nifty blog stats show that there have already been 1,001 views of this blog (give or take three).  Take that, Arabian Nights!  Although, in her defense, if Scheherazade were alive today and had the platform of the blogosphere, she would have more readers than Arianna Huffington ever dreamed.

“Money Jihad” blog is turning heads

October 29, 2009

In less than three weeks from its inception, Money Jihad has drawn readers from all over the web!  It was recently brought to my attention that MJ is WordPress‘s featured blog about terrorist financing, and it is the featured blog for Islamic taxation.

Thanks most especially to the wonderful readers and commenters from Jihad Watch–my favorite blog on the Internet–who have educated me on jihad over the years, and who are visiting this gem of a blog today!
