Good News: Annual Conference for Terror Supporters in Chicago Set to be Bigger than Evah!

I usually don't link HuffPo, but this post is so out of character that I'll make an exception to the rule. It's a week old, but the analysis of how radical pro-terror groups such as Hizb ut-Tahrir America use social media networking to spread their message makes it a must read.

Here's your teaser:

The radical Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) will host a conference in Chicago on July 11 to hype the virtues of an Islamic state ruled according to the strictest interpretation of Islamic law. The group launched an online social media campaign to promote the event; one that serves as a prime example of how extremists are able to expose the mainstream to their ideology....

HTA is part of a worldwide organization, Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), which works towards the establishment of an Islamic state (Khalifah) in a Muslim country. Once a government and a military have been installed, it intends to spread Islam to the rest of the world. HT condones violence against Western troops in Muslim countries and advocates the eradication of Israel, but has so far maintained a non-violent approach to its objectives.

9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is a former HT adherent.

Read the rest.

Here's their YouTube advertisement. Eerie.

Thanks to Kenny.
