Voice of the Caliphate
Voice of the Caliphate is allegedly a special broacast issued weekly by "The Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaeda mouthpiece" (SITE Institute). Voice of the Caliphate is yet to make its debut on the world scene yet it made its first appearance not via a broadcast on Al-Jazeera or the slew of other websites on which messages from Islamist groups are usually carried, but through the website of an organization called Search for International Terrorist Entities (SITE).
The appearance of this report coincided with the breaking of the US soldiers trading photographs of Iraqi dead for porn scandal. Reporting on the Al-Jazeera correspondent Taysir Alony's conviction in a Spanish court, the website quotes some laudatory comments from "VOC" to imply guilt and takes for granted Alony's alleged role in "helping to finance al-Qaeda by acting as a courier for the group during reporting work in Afghanistan".
