Yes, there are already several good sites about theosophy. American HQ 
even has internet radio.
The next step is promotion. I think that all of us should widespread 
information about these sites. (Not through internet only but through 
printed and other media too).
It's about English sites.
As for other languages, we have to create sites in our own languages 
it there's still no any.
Another way is creating CDs with contents of the sites, as there are 
many people in certain countries who have computers but no or very 
limited internet access. And one CD is cheeper than a book, moreover, 
they can be recorded one by one, no big quantities at once and big 
budgets are required.

I think it's useless to tell them. Not only theosophists hold this key 
(regarding jihad).
Muslims, at least those who are learned, know this well.
Recently I was at the lecture of V. Porohova, a russian woman who has 
adopted Islam and translated Quran into the Russian (high islamic 
authorities approved this translation).
She and her husband, who is an arab from Syria, also said the same 
thing about jihad and also that Quran doesn't approve violent 
convertion to Islam.

There's a better method: to laugh at the terrorists, thereby making 
their job less romantic.
During the World War Two many comic movies were made about Hitler. Why 
don't they make the same about terrorists? Due moderm media they would 
make the greater impact than then.
