Since I started Jihadology almost thirteen months ago, it has always been a side project of mine that I do in my free time. Unfortunately, this summer, I will not have the free time to maintain the website. I will be continuing my Arabic language study at Middlebury College, where there is a language pledge. Meaning it is completely full immersion and therefore, I will not be allowed to speak, write, read, or listen to anything except for in Arabic. Therefore, I will be unable to update this website in English. In the course of thinking about how I could get around this, I thought maybe I could continue this website in Arabic during the summer, but I do not believe it would be feasible since I will be extremely busy and I do not want to take away from my learning (which will hopefully allow for an even better website when I complete my study). Therefore, between June 7 and August 7 this website will go dark. Sorry for any inconveniences. I look forward, though, to the day when I return at the end of the summer and able to continue this website. I will still have access to email during the summer (since the program knows it is nearly impossible to completely shut out English language influences with todays technologies), so if you have any inquires, questions, or comments I will still be reading my emails: azelin [at] jihadology [dot] net. That said, my goal is to follow the spirit of the language pledge, which is why this website is going on hiatus.
Thank you for the continued support and I hope everyone has an enjoyable summer.
