Al-Suwaidan's Twitter page, twitter.com/#!/TareqAlSuwaidan, January 17, 2012. On January 17, 2012, Dr. Tareq Al-Suwaidan posted in his Twitter feed: "I see the need in uniting the efforts of the hackers within the electronic jihad project against the Zionist enemy, and it [i.e. the project] is an effective and important jihad, and its reward is great - Allah willing." On another occasion, he said: "I think that the hackers must pool their efforts in the electronic jihad campaign against Israel... [This campaign is] an important and effective [form of] jihad, and its rewards will be great, Allah willing." Sources: Alweeam.com, January 18, 2012. It should be noted that Al-Suweidan has expressed similar views in the past. In June 2011 he called to wage electronic jihad against Israel alongside armed resistance; see MEMRI TV Clip No. 2980, Kuwaiti Islamist Preacher Tareq Sweidan, Manager of Al-Risala TV, Calls for Armed Resistance and Electronic Jihad against Israel, June 4, 2011.
