The Internet has enabled revolutions in the Middle East and changed the way people communicate. It has also become a tool for hate groups and terrorists. A new report by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles suggests that the problem is worsening.
Rick Eaton, a senior researcher for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, points to some of the 15,000 websites scrutinized in this year's "Digital Terrorism and Hate" report. He says Internet forums offer a wealth of information for would-be terrorists.

By Damian Inwood, The Province January 21, 2011
A B.C.-wide warrant has been issued for a 44-year-old Burnaby man who threatened to blow up a North Vancouver mosque in June.
And staff at a book publisher with offices below the mosque at 351 Lynn Ave., said Wednesday they feel they should have been notified by RCMP.
RCMP say Mark Jenner failed to show up for court Jan. 12 on a charge of uttering threats.
