Red on Red: Anonymous Declares War on Jihadis

I can already feel the weeping and gnashing of teeth in the online jihadi community, many of whom use the Anonymous' Guy Fawkes mask as an avatar. Many Islamists see leftwing activists as fellow travelers in their war against Western values. This should be fun:

Some members of Anonymous have vowed to avenge the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris by taking down jihadist websites.

A video uploaded to the web by the group's Belgian wing also promises to scrub social networks of accounts promoting violent jihad.

This is win-win, all around: more time going after the real fascists, less time going after the imagined.

Update: Ooops, thanks to Rich
