Wordpress Hosted Terrorists Announce Media Campaign to 'Infiltrate' Infidel Websites, Support al Qaeda in Iraq

The Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) has issued a call for the online Islamist community to infiltrate Muslim & non-Muslim websites and post propaganda in support of the al Qaeda front group, the Islamic State of Iraq. The publication in support of the Islamic State of Iraq was posted in Arabic, German, French, and English.

MEMRI:

Recently, the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) announced a new comprehensive media campaign titled "The Battar Media Raid to Defend the Islamic State [of Iraq] (ISI)," [1] whose declared purpose is to repel the intensive campaign against the ISI by Arab and Western media agencies and to stop the increasing military campaign against the ISI by Sunni organizations in Iraq.

In a message titled "The Battar Media Raid: How to Participate? How to Help? What Is My Role?" the GIMF announces the beginning of the campaign and provides a detailed description of the campaign's goals and ways of accomplishing them, including infiltrating non-Islamic forums for the purpose of posting pro-ISI propaganda.....

If, however, you do not possess this expertise... there are other matters you can [promote]: for example, posting matters related to the raid in most [jihad] forums... posting [material] in non-jihad forums, posting in non-Islamic forums such as music forums, youth forums, sports forums, and others. Anyone who undertakes to post the material must look into the [appropriate] manner of spreading [the material for each type of forum]... The way in which members of music forums address one another differs from the way members of jihad forum address one another."

The following poster was also posted at the GIMF website.

The symbol at the bottom left hand corner is that of GIMF, but that is the flag of the Islamic State of Iraq--the al Qaeda umbrella group-- on the bottom right.

The GIMF has long been a target of The Jawa Report. The online community of cyber jihadis, based in Germany, uses the internet to spread Islamist propaganda. They have dozens of websites, and even a web based television station. While not officially connected to al Qaeda, there is no doubt that they constitute the largest pro-al Qaeda propagandist organization in the West.

GIMF has been involved, on the propaganda side at last, in the kidnappings of German hostage Hannelore Marianne Kraus and her son and in the hostage taking of Fox News reporters Steve Centanni & Olaf Wiig.

GIMF, it would seem, has a working relationship with Islamist terrorists all over the world. Including al Qaeda in Iraq.

We have mentioned these bastards dozens of times, most recently by Howie who believes it was GIMF that was behind the latest spam attack on The Jawa Report. As previously noted, the blogging platform of choice for GIMF happens to be Wordpress. This is their German website, hosted by wordpress. And yes, I'm positive this is their official website, since I was able to track Die Zeit's request for an interview, later broadcast on German TV, to a conversation the journalist had with GIMF in their comment section.

Oh, and Howie grabbed this screenshot from the GIMF publication mentioned by MEMRI above

When Yahoo was notified that they were hosting a GIMF website which openly supported al Qaeda, they had the class to take that website down. But Wordpress? Not so much. After several posts about Wordpress hosting GIMF webpages, with all the complaints that come with such posts, nada on Wordpress's end. Don't even get me started on the Google owned blogspot and all the terrorist supporters over there.......

Thanks to Gerald and Howie for the heads up. Gerald's comments about winning the propaganda war are also important.

*websites of known terror organizations, terrorists, or those acting in their name
**Few terror supporters actually say, "we support terrorism" and these blogs are no exception. What they do is define terror in such a way as to exclude every organization listed by the U.S. State Department as specially designated terrorist entities. Most of these blogs, though, openly support terror organizations such as al Qaeda in Iraq, the Islamic Courts Union of Somalia, or the Taliban.
