Channel 4 Doxes @ShamiWitness (Bumped/Updated) : Mehdi Masroor Biswas
On The Run/Hiding in Mommy's Basement/ Busted!)
Fro those of you who don't know, ShamiWitness is a total asshole ISIS supporter who claimed on twitter to be in Syria aka Sham. He liked to talk shit about how brave he was.
The most influential pro-Islamic State Twitter account to be followed by foreign jihadis - Shami Witness - is shut down after a Channel 4 News investigation uncovers the identity of the man behind it
He spent his mornings, afternoons and evenings sending thousands of tweets of propaganda about the Islamic State militant group, acting as the leading conduit of information between jihadis, supporters, and recruits.
His tweets, written under the name Shami Witness, were seen two million times each month, making him perhaps the most influential Islamic State Twitter account, with over 17,700 followers.
He has until now been able to remain anonymous, avoiding questions about his motives and his central role in the Islamic State's propaganda war, but a Channel 4 News investigation can today reveal that the man operating the account is called Mehdi and he is an executive in Bangalore working for an Indian conglomerate.
LOOOOOL ShamiWitness has deactivated his Twitter!!!!!!!!! He lives in Bangalore, India!— Leith Abou Fadel (@KeepingtheLeith) December 11, 2014
You lose Shami!
Update: They are dropping like flies!
Update ShamiWitness unmasked.
Mehdi Masroor Biswas
Update: It appears Mehdi has skipped town.
BENGALURU: Senior Bengaluru police officials said that a search is on for the man who is suspected to have operated ISIS's most successful Twitter account, @ShamiWitnes.
The officials, speaking to TOI on condition of anonymity, said that the man may have fled the city. They added that the cyber cell, however, is still trying to get leads on him.
Bengaluru city commissioner MN Reddi on Friday said that the task of investigation has been given to the central crime branch.
The man, who was identified as Mehdi, works with a multinational advertisement firm in the city and lives with his family here.
More here at Mashable:
One of his Twitter followers was a 23-year-old British man named Iftikhar Jaman from Portsmouth who went to Syria to fight for ISIS. Jaman was killed while fighting in Syria in December last year. Afterward Mehdi tweeted about Jaman that: "you bros talked the talk, walked the walk."
The Washington Post has reported that ISIS draws 1,000 new foreign fighters into its rank every month from more than 80 countries.
According to some jihadi experts, two-thirds of foreign fighters for ISIS who are active on Twitter followed @ShamiWitness.And the Times of India.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had prior information that a man from Bengaluru was running the ISIS Twitter handle and was in the process of getting more details.Time Magazine...tsk tsk tsk. He's being Probed LOL.
Arib Majeed, an ISIS recruit from Kalyan who was deported from Turkey, had told NIA about the Twitter handle during interrogation.
Arib had also told NIA that he had heard the Twitter handle was being run by a man from Bengaluru.
During investigation, NIA stumbled upon an identity, Mehdi Mehboob Biswas, who was purportedly running the handle.
China..... its like no where is safe, I mean you think the Turks are going to pass up the chance to probe Mr. Shami?
But some analysts stressed that the account was also followed by Middle East experts and intelligence agencies, which could gain precious insight into the Islamic State propaganda machine:That's total, but well intentioned (says Howie as he looks down his nose) , BS! Everything there is to learn about Shami has been learned already. I can assure you. His demise is a great blow to ISIS online network. Its strikes fear into the hearts of the ISIS supporters, it disrupts them.
Well intentioned Channel4 likely deals unwitting blow to intel agencies that were obviously tolerating #ShamiWitness for monitoring purposes— د. كريستوفر ديفيدسون (@dr_davidson) December 12, 2014
Intel is useless if its not acted upon, morons like @dr_davidson, proponents of the watch and gather only policy adhere to a losing strategy as demonstrated by ISIS ability to recruit with impunity. One only need to log on to twitter to see the size of its failure. And today one only need to logon to see the success of the disruption of the ShamiWitness node.
These non-English/Western language campaigns for IS, which have generally continued unabated, unsurprisingly attract less attention because the media focus on social media is on recruitment of Westerners. Overlooking the Arabic side of IS’ foreign fighters recruitment base and contingents risks missing out on a big part of the story of IS’ growth.I would argue that one of the reasons we have such an issue is a failure to disrupt that has let the problem fester, at one level on the internet. Then you have the cell phone networks in the Middle East which has taken the place of much of the old Jihadist Internet of which the Twitter Jihad reflects at it uniquely straddles both the internet and cell phone networks.
Ultimately, the fundamental problem we face is that there is simply too much IS material being disseminated too rapidly for Twitter and social media to catch up to crack down comprehensively, for all the ‘degradation’ of IS’ official capacity to propagate on Twitter. This would seem to be the price of the world of open access social media. Hopefully, the Muslim world within in particular can develop counter-narratives.
He told Channel 4 News today that he feared police would kill him and that he did not keep guns in his home in a bid for his safety.Nothing wrong? Except that Mehdi facilitated murder and the rape and destruction of two nations and cheered on ISIS as it committed genocide against the Yazidis, Kurds and Shia.Mehdi: I have a suspicion when that the police, when they come to arrest to me, they might try to kill me then they would say I tried to attack them.
I want to state clearly that I won't resist arrest when the time comes. I don't have any sort of weapons with me. I have no intention of resisting.
Simon Israel: Why do you think they might come to arrest you?
M: They are saying in the media there's an actual manhunt right now. They might take more than 24 hours.
SI: But do you think you have done anything wrong?
M: No I haven't done anything wrong. I haven't harmed anybody, I haven't broken any laws of the country. I haven't raised any war or any violence against the public of India. So no.
Nope nothing wrong with that, if you look at the world with ISIS colored glasses, Islam commands Muslims to the rape and destruction of Muslim lands.
The fallout continues...
Update 12/13/14: Its over, Shami is in the slammi.
LOL! Delete! Delete! Delete!
Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Runa
A radical Luton Muslim mother-of-six who dressed her young son as a Mujahideen fighter and urged her Facebook friends to become suicide bombers has been jailed for more than five years.Hat Tip: Creeping Sharia.
Runa Khan, 35, of Maple Road West, was determined to radicalise her own children and friends into fundamentalist Jihadism in a campaign of hate on the internet and at home.
He jailed her for five years and three months, saying only her guilty plea had saved her from a maximum prison term.
The judge said since her arrest, Khan had admitted to probation officers and psychologists that she is committed to the promotion of suicide bombing, beheadings, stoning, and amputation under Islamic Law.
‘Your conduct was no reckless but intentional – the more extensive the spread of your message the better’, he added.
‘You appear to have no insight in the effect of radicalising your children, having selfishly placed your ideology and beliefs above their welfare in your priorities.’

Fantastic News! Online Jihad So Huge Intelligence Agencies Can't Keep Up
Counterterrorism experts agree that the danger posed by returning jihadists is significant: already radicalized before they joined groups like the Al Nusra Front and the Islamic State (IS or ISIS), they are now well-trained in the practice of terrorist warfare. Unlike most Westerners, they have overcome any discomfort they may have previously felt about killing or confronting death. Chances are, they've already done it.That good huh?
But now some experts – and returning jihadists – say ISIS "sleeper cells" are already embedded in the West. So-called "Jihadi Hunter" Dimitri Bontinck told the UK's Mail Online last month that "influential sources" had informed him of such cells, and warned that they were "preparing to unleash their war on Europe." And an ISIS defector reportedly told a Scandinavian broadcaster of similar sleeper cells in Sweden which were, he said, "awaiting orders."
The presence of these cells should not come as much of a surprise. More surprising is that Europe's intelligence agencies hadn't spotted them earlier. In part, this could be blamed on the intense focus on dealing with returnees, a problem that has left some intelligence and law enforcement agencies stretched thin: in June, for instance, Dutch intelligence agency AIVD admitted it "could no longer keep up" with the jihadists in the Netherlands.

Here Here Good Man!
Jester and I spent some time discussing if they murdered Syrian pilots were "willing martyrs" because it just seems so odd that people would go silently, willingly to the grave.
Its an observation that I've seen several times, including from Gerald at Internet Anthropologist.
A thought supported by the John Cantlie videos.
But my observation was that since the Mujahideen Sura Council days in Iraq the norm is not a kicking and screaming victim. The murders are often banal, with the victim either doing the Thorazine Shuffle or so broken by previous mock executions that they have lost all will to resist and welcome the relief that death might bring from the daily torture and abuse.
And for you Muslims out there reading, remember when you spoke of the brutality and torture of Saddam, Well ISIS IS SADDAM, with one AQI figurehead on top.
So if you want the days of Saddam back, the days where anyone including his own Sunni brothers that opposed him were murdered in cold blood, be proud because no one wanted to resurrect his tyranny, but that is what you have now done with your support of ISIS.
I leave you with Jester's link showing the probable location of the latest ISIS murders...

Yes Virginia Providing Material Support to ISIS Media Wing al-Fuqan is a Crime
Spanish police on Thursday have arrested at least ten people on charges of glorifying terrorism and denigrating its victims on social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.Hat Tip: El Grillo.
Those arrested included people who had posted online messages sympathizing with groups including the Basque terrorist group Eta, Al Qaeda and the now disbanded left-wing, Catalan nationalist group Terra Lliure, Spain's El Mundo newspaper reported.
The arrests in locations across the country are the second stage of Operation Spider — Spain's first dedicated operation against cyberterrorism — with the first phase in April netting 21 arrests.
The issue of abusive online political message came to the fore in Spain in the wake of the murder of Isabel Carrasco, a politician with Spain's ruling Popular Party, in May.
Shortly after the killing, a 19-year-old Spanish man was arrested for sending out threatening tweets authorities believed were an attempt to justify her murder.
"Put them (the politicians) in a row, or side by side, and give me an AK-47 (machine gun) and you'll see how I get rid of these fascists," the young man allegedly tweeted.
"Damn that's how you do it. Let's kill all of them," the man from Spain's Valencia region wrote in another tweet.
*Jawa Report has known all this for quite some time. We've elected not to run it up to this point for the safety of Adam and his family, especially for his wife's family.

Cornhole Watch: Donald Ray Morgan AKA Nasser Abdul Raheem
A North Carolina man who was featured in a Nightly News story last month about foreign fighters attempting to join the fighting in Syria pleaded guilty on Thursday to terrorism charges.
Donald Ray Morgan pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
Morgan, 44, was initially held on the gun charge after his arrest at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Aug. 2, shortly after he arrived on a flight from Frankfurt, Germany. The terrorism charge was added Thursday, and he pleaded guilty to both charges.
Morgan admitted that he tried, unsuccessfully, to travel from Lebanon to Syria to join ISIS. He also admitted posting pro-jihadist messages on social media and, as prosecutors put it, conducting an interview with an freelance journalist "to express his support for ISIL/ISIS and violent terrorist activities."

Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck
AUSTRALIA’S most senior Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of Kobane, his friends have claimed.See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.
Authorities were working last night to verify reports that Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Australians. The former drug-abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.
Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.
Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Baryalei’s demise were true.
“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an online interview with The Australian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”
You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

Actual Real Life Terrorists Notice Houston Baghdadi's American Jihad
click for larger
And in English for Arabic challenge folks like myself.
I'd say that ups the danger that AbdulRahman Baghdadi poses, wouldn't you.
If the Muslim community in Houston cannot foster and guild him correctly onto a better path, then someone else will. He will meet a real terrorist or group online who will take advantage, give him that place he is seeking and attempt to influence him to do something really extra stupid and/or dangerous.so it appears that at least one of my fears if founded. Given yesterday's events in Canada I don't think we can afford to just let Jihadis run around.
After all Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau was being watched, but the authorities thought his only crime was the not really a crime crime of aiding the dissemination of al-Qaeda propaganda in a context of support for al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Its this context that we have said for years justifies the fighting against the propagation of terrorist materials by groups that have declared open war on the west and are also a specially designated terrorist group.
This is not banning "information" as some suggest, rather it is disabling the enemies propaganda outlet. To deny the enemy a den, where they become more radicalized and prone to act out their Jihad on innocents.
Which is right where we are with Adam "Baghdadi" although he openly declares allegiance to IS and spreads messages of support, which by the way are a specially designated terrorist group, but we wait and wait for the "real crime".
I fear pretty soon we're going to get a real crime.
This is the product of the watch only policy on online terrorism. An ever, growing, ever more radical, and ever more radical group of terrorists grows unchecked. With the end result being real world terrorism.

Breaking Two Canadian Soldiers Run Down in Apparent Domestic Terror Attack (Update: Radicalized Muslim Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau Killed By Police in Attack) (Update II: One of The Canadian Soldiers Injured in Terrorist Attack Dies of His Injuries)
al-Qaeda and ISIS has been asking for acts like this in various online magazines and videos.
Toronto StarThe good news is whomever did it is Dead Jim!MONTREAL—The suspect in a hit-and-run that injured two Canadian soldiers in Quebec — an incident identified as a possible terror attack — is fighting for his life in hospital after being shot several times by police.
The shocking incident, which occurred at about noon Monday in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, also sent the two Canadian Armed Forces personnel to hospital with one fighting for his life and the other having suffered minor injuries, according to the Quebec provincial police.
The two soldiers were reportedly walking through the parking lot of a shopping centre located less than three kilometres from the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, the French-language university run by the Department of National Defence, when they were run down by a driver.
A police chase ensued and the car drove into a ditch after the driver lost control of the vehicle, police said.
Witnesses who spoke with the TVA network Monday afternoon said they saw a man emerge from the flipped vehicle that was lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The man had his hands in the air and was walking toward police when at least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The witnesses said they heard up to seven gunshots.So we're not really sure of the motive, the knife may have been the reason officers opened fire. Normally I might be skeptical of trigger happy police but in this case, meh.
TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the two injured pedestrians were members of the military but said it was too early in the investigation to comment on suggestions it may have been a terror attack.We'll know more about motive once the dead perp is identified, it would however fit with recent threats against any nation who opposes ISIS.
Hat Tip: Life Freedom Family.
Update: Confirmed stiff was a terrorist.
The driver of a car who rammed two Canadian Forces members near Montreal before being shot dead by police was known to counter-terrorism authorities who believed he had become radicalized, the RCMP said on Monday as they continued to investigate the possible terrorist attack.He called himself Ahmad LeConverti on Facebook.
“This individual was known to federal authorities including our Integrated National Security Investigations team in Montreal who along with other authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized,’’ the RCMP said in a statement. The force declined further comment.
The 25-year-old, known as Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, allegedly hit two members of the Canadian Forces as they were walking in a strip mall just outside St-Jean-sur-Richelieu at about 11:30 a.m. Police chased the man more than four kilometres until his car flipped into a ditch.
The man then exited his car, allegedly holding a knife, and police opened fire, seriously injuring him, said Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Joyce Kemp. He was transported to hospital, but police later confirmed he had died.
The suggestion the incident was an act of terrorism was first raised in the House of Commons by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said he was aware of the “extremely troubling” reports and that authorities were investigating.
From what I can tell he was a member of an Anti American Facebook group called United Slaves of America.
Our prayers go out to the family and to all of Canada.
Also my apologies that your loss for standing with America against ISIS has gotten little or no notice in the American press.
I didn't hear it on NPR, I don't see it on CNN, I don't see it on ABC, CBS. no not even FOXNEWS.

Gen. Martin Dempsey Cites Importance of Countering Cyber Jihad
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, characterized the risk of Americans coming back to the United States after fighting for Islamic State in Syria or Iraq and launching an attack as “significant.”The cyber Jihad, it really is that dangerous.
“Given what they’ve already demonstrated in terms of brutality and utter disregard for human life, other than those who adhere to their ideology, whatever weapons system they would have in their possession – there’s no doubt that they would use it, including weapons of mass destruction,” he said.
Noting that military officials have been in close contact with both the U.S. intelligence communities and U.S. law enforcement, he said the risk of those in the U.S. becoming radicalized would increase until ISIS’ “momentum is reversed” and U.S. authorities are able to counter their ability to recruit and put out propaganda on social media and the Internet.
So in my book "Counter" means offense and disruption of AQ and ISIS internet activities. Not just collecting blips to fill up a cloud of hard drives.

if ISIS Isn't Islamic The Pope Isn't Cathlolic
s ISIS slaughters its way though Syria and Iraq, it became inevitable that we’d hear from apologists who claim that ISIS is not in fact “true Islam,” and that its depredations are due to something other than religious motivation. Those motivations, say the apologists, are political (usually Western colonialism that engenders resentment), cultural (societal tradition), or anything other than religion.Like Rusty once said, Islam is what Muslims believe it is, so to the extent that Muslims in ISIS and those who support it believe it represents Islam, it represents Islam. Its that simple.
These apologists, of course, which now include President Obama, are motivated by a desire to avoid criticizing religion at all costs—especially Islam.....
Actually, what people like Obama, Paul, Volsky, and Jenkins consider “true” faith is this: “faith that promotes the kind of behavior that I like.” So, as do all believers, the apologists pick and choose from scripture the dictates that they find congenial, ignoring the bad ones.

US Intelligence Keep Tweeting #ISIS
Radical Islamists in Iraq are using social media to spread fear and propaganda in a way no terrorist group has done before.The article goes on to explain why intelligence analysts want the accounts up.
Fighters from the Islamic State (also known as ISIL or ISIS) have shared Instagram pictures of gory executions, and have posted YouTube videos showing a beheading while tweeting "This is our ball. It’s made of skin #WorldCup." Seemingly without break, their Twitter accounts spew a mixture of carnage and preaching, peppered with weird jokes and gruesome taunts.
And American officials want them to keep it up.
An employee with a major social media company told Mashable that U.S. intelligence officials approached the company and asked that the ISIL accounts not be taken down, despite the often bloody and threatening content.
The reason? American intelligence officials are monitoring the ISIL accounts, trying to glean information about the deadly group and its strengths, tactics and networks.All very well and good. But I think they are missing the point of take-downs and counter terrorism phyops.
Social media "is one of the many sources" American analysts monitor when "assessing the fluid ISIL situation," a U.S. intelligence official told Mashable on condition of anonymity.
"Whether or not it makes more sense to be trying to quash this kind of communication so they can’t get their message out, intel folks would always want them to have it more open," said Jason Healey, a founding member of the Pentagon's first joint cyberwar unit and now director of the Atlantic Council's Statecraft Initiative.
True there should be a balance between counter messaging and quashing the message. But after you have gathered all the intelligence on a person with that handy dandy thingy called the Save Button and fed it into your little analysis tool. From that point forward what is the balance of harm done vs. intelligence gathered? You have the his network mapped. Now the user is gaining prominence and credibility. He's recruiting, he's promoting the terrorist message. And you're doing what? Watching a slow motion train wreck?
And that's where I get off the intelligence train, The article makes it sound as though all intelligence analysts think this. That's true of the majority. But the majority's bread and butter is always more info. They don't want to miss one valuable byte. I don't want to say their only motivation is money, but they are making a living and like most humans they want to make the money and gather intelligence the easiest way possible.
Anyone who has spent time building a social network or website knows, when a takedown happens and you have to rebuild that network or website the replacement rarely if ever achieves the reach and popularity of the original network.
So there's a point to counter messaging, takedowns, and psyops. Remember once you gather that initial picture of a network, from that point forward the balance of harm vs good in leaving an account diminishes while that user's credibility and reach increases.
Its a huge pain in the ass for the online Jihadi and quite an annoyance to intelligence analysts. People are basically lazy and the analysts don't want to go through the pain of relocating a particular subject and remapping his new online system any more than the Jihadi wants to start over from scratch. But you have his network saved remember. He'll come back and reestablish his network connecting with what he considers the most important nodes first. So that in itself tells you a lot about his community. On the downside he'll try to harden his online presence and become a more resistant user.
In my opinion the watch and do nothing policy fails in the long run. Are Jihadis being created and recruited faster than you can watch and gather intelligence? I think the last few years in which the watch only policy has garnered favor makes clear the answer is yes. Islamic terror is spreading faster and faster around a much larger community. Although its main presence has left the internet for the most part in favor of Middle Eastern cell phone networks.
Takedowns and psyops do however serve a purpose. They show your dominance in the online battle space and hurt the credibility, reputation and reach of your target.
Now I would never suggest that we set intelligence totally aside in these matters. It must by necessity always come first. But neither does a takedown necessarily have to be harmful to intelligence. Lets take the example of Revolution Muslim. Was the loss of several of their websites targeted by Jawa Report really that much of an obstacle?
Was the loss of the al-Buruj website, several of their backup and reconstituted websites a problem when it came time for law enforcement to go after the members of that radical group?
Thanks to the handy save button thingy, no. We've NEVER went after any target without first doing the obligatory due diligence.
The fact that Zack Chesser, Younnes Abdullah Muhammad, Yousef al-Khattab and several other members are now sitting in federal pound me in the ass prison is the proof in the pudding so to speak. Look at that network now. At one time the leading Jihadi online network in America now relegated to send second hand posts of Younne's letters to an obscure, unnoticed and unpopular website.
Revmos days of preaching Jihad and terrorism in America ARE OVER!
Now I'm not naive enough to think that the exact same strategy that worked on the domestic group will be enough to work on the huge overseas group ISIS.
And the US does do counter messaging on social media.
If through intelligence we can locate an AQ propagandists phone and send a Hellfire his way. I'm all for it. To what extent we can counter and disrupt ISIS and other terrorists messaging though psyops and takedowns we should. So long as we've used that save button thingy first.
The intelligence analysts will grumble a bit, about having to, you know, work. But behind the scenes I think they also cheer for a good PWN or takedown as well.
Will adding more spyops and takedowns to the mix be enough, well I'm pessimistic now? Online terrorism has grown to such an extent, whereas in the beginning it was a fairly small community, these days the targets are too numerous to mention. Could we have stopped it? We'll never know but anything that would have slowed it down or deterred followers and recruits could have helped. Its a bit late now, despite our repeated warnings and advocacy of a stronger online response.
I feel the advocates of the watch only policy bear a bit of responsibility for that, for now the Genie is truly out of bottle, we're paying a huge price for them to never miss a byte of data, no?
