You could try a 'Google search' too.
Foreign Minister Alexander Downer says a video aired on Arab television, showing a masked militant with an apparent Australian accent, appears to be authentic.
The footage shows the man holding a rifle and criticising the British Prime Minister Tony Blair over the war in Iraq.
The masked man also boasted about a recent attack that killed United States troops in Afghanistan and he said a group of Al Qaeda fighters carried out the operation.
Mr Downer says while it is hard to tell the man's nationality, officials are trying to identify whether he is Australian.
"He seems to be a native English speaker," he said.
"And, bearing in mind we do have a very small number of Australians who are jihadists, who have joined the jihad movement, who have trained with Al Qaeda, we can't rule it out that it's an Australian."
"He certainly speaks fluent English, he could be British or he could be an Australian.
"Bearing in mind we do have a very small number of Australians who are jihadists, who have joined the jihad movement, (who) have trained with al-Qaeda, we can't rule it out that it is an Australian."
Terrorism expert Clive Williams from the Australian National University said the video appeared to be the work of al-Qaeda, and seemed to be authentic.
The fact the terrorists had used a person with an Australian accent in the message was interesting, Mr Williams said.
"It's probably intended to show the organisation has international support," he said.

ANTI-TERRORISM police trying to identify the Australian linked to the latest al-Qaeda video yesterday contacted the mother of a former soldier who vanished in mid-2001 after travelling to Afghanistan.
Mathew Stewart, a private in the army's 2RAR regiment until being discharged on psychological grounds, has been high on a government priority watch-list since he crossed the Iranian border into Afghanistan on August 4, 2001, a month before the attacks on the US on September 11. He had reportedly converted to Islam.
Sources confirmed last night that Mr Stewart had not contacted his family on Queensland's Sunshine Coast for at least three years.
Mr Stewart was the subject of an Australian Defence Force statement in mid-2002 that listed a 25-year-old man as missing in Afghanistan and believed to have trained with al-Qaeda.
Security agencies in Australia and overseas are making exhaustive checks to try to establish any link between the missing man and the release of an al-Qaeda video this week showing a masked man speaking with an Australian accent.
