An al-Qaida inspired computer expert who dubbed himself "the jihadist James Bond" was imprisoned for 10 years Thursday for running a network of extremist Web sites and hoarding videos of the murders of Americans Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl. Morocco-born Younis Tsouli, 23, who prosecutors said had uploaded guides to building suicide vests on to the Internet, used the online ID "irhabi007" - the Arabic word for terrorist and the code name of the fictional British spy. With accomplices Tariq al-Daour and Waseem Mughal - who were also jailed Thursday - Tsouli offered advice and motivation to would-be terrorists on a myriad of Web pages run from their London homes, prosecutors said. In opening arguments, raised before the group pleaded guilty, prosecutors detailed message traffic on Internet forums run by the men. One message read: "We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America."
