Jeremy Reynalds, a "fundamentalist, right-wing, Bush-loving Christian", according to his own account[1]

Reynalds is described as an 'online terrorist hunter' in the blurb for his book War of the Web: Fighting the Online Jihad (World Ahead Publishing, 2007).[2]


Jeremy Reynalds was born in England and emigrated to the United States in 1978. Jeremy gave his life to the Lord in 1976. He became an American citizen in 1998 and voted in his first general election in 2000. Jeremy founded and directed a small homeless shelter in Santa Fe, New Mexico from 1982 through 1986. He resigned that and started the Albuquerque-based "Joy Junction," now New Mexico's largest emergency homeless shelter, in August 1986. Joy Junction does not accept government funding of any type and is not a United Way member.
In addition to his responsibilities at Joy Junction, Jeremy is also a writer for the Assist News Service ( He has also authored a number of books, "The Walking Wounded" (Huntington House, 1996), "Homeless Culture and the Media," (Cambria Press, 2006), and "Homeless in the City: A Call to Service." (Theatron Books, 2006). Additional information is available about this book at He also contributed to another book in 1999 that dealt with how the media portrays the homeless.[3]

Self Description

"I am a conservative, evangelical, bible-believing, fundamentalist, right-wing, Bush-loving Christian and I also love Israel and the Jewish race. And I believe in free speech - but I want to see radical Islam defeated."[4]

Islamic Media allegations

In an interview on a Canadian website the following is reported:

his search for terrorists took him to, of all places, Yahoo!, the Internet company famous for its powerful search engine. He discovered a Yahoo! Group (essentially an online forum where people can discuss a certain topic) called Global Islamic Media (GIM), a group many now believe that acts as a "mouthpiece" for Al-Qaeda. Incensed, Reynalds started a crusade to have the group removed from the web.
He didn't get a response at first, but a few weeks about the initial complaint, the site was taken down. But a few weeks later, it returned under a new name. Reynalds informed CNN about this and they did a story on Jeremy's war against online terror, but Yahoo! did not respond to CNN's calls.
"Yahoo! seems like a law unto themselves," Reynalds says. "They didn't respond to CNN and they barely responded to me." Why would Yahoo!, he wonders, continue to allow the group to exist? "I am not into conspiracy theories," he continues, "but I find it very interesting that their CTO is an Iranian. What would be the reason for them wanting to keep their service base open to these radically Islamic Yahoo! Groups that aren't even making any money?"[5]
