#BDS_Fail: Al-Qaeda using Israeli company for secure email

I don't know whether we should laugh or cry about this one. Al-Qaeda is using an Israeli company for secure email services.
Al-Qaida’s media wing, Al-Sahab, has begun using an Israeli company in order to secure its communications.
The Middle East Media Research Institute discovered that the group was using Safemail, which according to its website “is owned and operated by Secure Information Technologies Ltd., which is a privately owned company registered in Israel and with offices in Israel, the UK and Japan.”
The company describes itself as: “The most secure, easy to use communication system. It includes encrypted mail system with collaboration features and document storage functions.
Always accessible at any time from anywhere!” According to the MEMRI report, released on April 25, “Al-Qaida’s Embrace Of Encryption Technology – Part II: 2011-2014, And The Impact Of Edward Snowden,” the al-Qaida media wing announced on April 9 that an open interview of Maulana Asim Umar, the head of al-Qaida’s Shari’a Committee in Pakistan, would take place.
Questions would be received in Urdu, Arabic, English or Pashto at either a Yahoo or Safe-mail email address, said the announcement.
Since 2007, the report said, al-Qaida began using encryption technology in order to protect its communications from breaches of its websites by Western government agencies.
Following the disclosures by former US intelligence computer professional, Edward Snowden, Western governments have noticed that the group has changed its communication methods.
 You don't think Israel is tapping into that 'secure' email, do you? Heh.
