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...


and this...

Death to ISIS and May God bless America.

Yes Virginia Providing Material Support to ISIS Media Wing al-Fuqan is a Crime

The Local:

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.

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.

Hat Tip: El Grillo.

Cornhole Watch: Donald Ray Morgan AKA Nasser Abdul Raheem

Everyone wave buh bye to Nasser!

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

He's totally 100% dead Jim!

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.

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.

1414546045582_wps_2_baryalei.jpg

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.”

See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.

You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

Actual Real Life Terrorists Notice Houston Baghdadi's American Jihad

This post on ISIS' Arabic forum.

5446a2a02ff764-99694522.jpg
click for larger

And in English for Arabic challenge folks like myself.

bagenglish1small.jpg

bagenglish2small.jpg

bagenglish3small.jpg

I'd say that ups the danger that AbdulRahman Baghdadi poses, wouldn't you.

As you recall in my last piece on Baghdadi I stated this.

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 Star
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.

ahmadconverti1.png


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.

The good news is whomever did it is Dead Jim!
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.

TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.

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.
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.

“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.

He called himself Ahmad LeConverti on Facebook.

There is still a copy in the google cache.

From what I can tell he was a member of an Anti American Facebook group called United Slaves of America.

Gen. Martin Dempsey Cites Importance of Countering Cyber Jihad

Allowing AQ and ISIS perpetual cyber haven on the internet is a bad idea.

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.”

“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.

The cyber Jihad, it really is that dangerous.

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

Or some variation on that here at New Republic:

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.

massacreinsultislam.jpg

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.

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.

An ISIS-affiliated group has threatened to assassinate Twitter employees that close down their accounts.

Users linked to the extremists tweeted a series of messages on Sunday urging 'lone wolves' in the US and Europe to make the firm their target.

One of the calls is believed to have come from Al Musra Al Maqdisia, or The Supporters Of Jerusalem - a Jerusalem-based group that pledged its allegiance to ISIS in February.

Marine Vet’s Viral Post Warning ISIS: ‘Attack Us and There Will be No Mercy’


To all you ignorant Islamic extremist f—-. As I sit here watching you execute women, children and men in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you idiots who think you are so tough. You are scaring a population that doesn’t know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak.
What did Saddam’s troops do when we came to town? Surrendered, twice… All your threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than you could ever understand. In 2012 there were 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? That means there are millions of pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch friends die because you Islamic idiots can’t seem to act like human beings and stop terrorism and violence.

She recently sparked outrage when she posted a picture of her toddler son posing with an AK47 rifle.

Dare, who has urged other young women from London to join her in Syria, is thought to have converted to Islam in her mid-teens.

She locked her twitter account apparently from the publicity she has received.

Jihad In America Cornhole Watch: Ali Muhammad Brown

Ali mohammed brown.jpg
Bitches mug shot

Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, of Seattle, went on a killing spree because of US killing "innocent" Muslims the world over.

SEATTLE (CBSNewYork/AP) – Prosecutors in Washington state filed a third aggravated murder count against a man also charged with murder in New Jersey, alleging the four killings are part of a “bloody crusade” to punish the U.S. government for its foreign policies.

King County prosecutors charged Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, with first-degree aggravated murder Wednesday in the April 27 shooting of 30-year-old Leroy Henderson in Skyway, south of Seattle. Read the rest

He murdered a college student in New Jersey who had the audacity to stop for a red light. He also murdered 2 young men in Seattle and used a "gay site" to lure them. (Where is the outrage from LGBT outlets?)

He could be charged with terrorism. Why this hasn't peaked the interest of more MSM outlets is beyond me, oh wait. Silly me. Islamophobia!!

Mohammed said he killed 4 in Wash., N.J. to gain revenge against U.S."

According to a criminal complaint filed in King County, Brown took responsibility for each shooting and told investigators he carried out the killings to gain retribution for lives lost during U.S. military action in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

"My mission is my mission between me and my lord. That's it," Brown said during a jailhouse interview in New Jersey, according to the court filings. "My mission is vengeance, for the lives, millions of lives are lost every day."

US Intelligence Keep Tweeting #ISIS

A pretty good article on ISIS and twitter here.

Radical Islamists in Iraq are using social media to spread fear and propaganda in a way no terrorist group has done before.

talk2medumbass3.jpg

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 article goes on to explain why intelligence analysts want the accounts up.
The reason? American intelligence officials are monitoring the ISIL accounts, trying to glean information about the deadly group and its strengths, tactics and networks.

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.

All very well and good. But I think they are missing the point of take-downs and counter terrorism phyops.

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?

Khalife Ibrahim Issues Fatwa Against Darth Odie

As some of you may recall, I've been polluting ISIS hashtags in my spare time. Mainly with show tunes. Because Bernadette is like teh hot!

But now, now I can like totally retire.


I would like to extend my thanks to my parents, Corvair, George Lucas and alcohol for making this, the greatest moment of my life, possible.

Give A Hoot Do Pollute

It seems ISIS' CalamityWillBefallUS hashtag terror campaign has fallen victim to so called internet trolls.


There's a bevy of infidels just slinging insults, posting show tunes and impersonating Abu-Omar al-Baghdadi


Oh of course there is still some Anti American propaganda in the feed, and that's where YOU come in. Bury that sh*t where it belongs. Make this the All American Boy From NYC Hashtag.

Yes CalamityWillBefallYOUISIS.

Report: Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov is dead

Unconfirmed for now....get ready for MC Hammer's happy dance

(CNN) -- Chechen warlord Doku Umarov, one of Russia's most wanted men, has died, a Chechen jihadist website said Tuesday.

The Kavkaz Center website said Umarov would be replaced as leader of the Islamist group Caucasus Emirate by Ali Abu Mohammed.

Umarov's forces have claimed responsibility for several deadly bombings, including in Moscow. His death has been reported several times by the Kremlin-backed leader of the Chechnya region, but never before by Umarov's sympathizers.

The report of Umarov's death has not been independently confirmed.

The website did not say when or how Umarov had died. It called him "a martyr."

Someone will update this post with Mr.Hammer when its confirmed...

UPDATE by Rusty: FIRED!

Its not just me.

Somali Memo is a Shabaab favorable propaganda site. Ahmed Godane a specially designated terrorist used the site to release a threat.

Hat Tip: JΞSTΞR™ and several others who spent part of the day pointing out to the provider that they were in violation of the law by providing services to specially designated terrorists and groups by hosting Shabaab propaganda.

Cornhole Watch: Romain of Ansar al-Haqq Forum

http://ansar-alhaqq.net/ is a French Jihadi board similar to the English Ansar al-Mujahideen.

Expatica:

France has arrested the webmaster of a jihadist site on charges of "provoking" terrorism, prosecutors said Thursday just as the government warned hundreds of homegrown Islamist militants were signing up for Syria.

The 26-year-old, identified as Romain, was detained Tuesday for his role as administrator of the Ansar al Haqq website, a "reference" for the radical Islamist movement, and as a translator of magazines put out by militant group Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Paris prosecutors said.

The announcement comes as French Interior Minister Manuel Valls warned that more than 300 nationals or residents were either fighting in Syria's devastating civil war, planning to go or had recently returned from there.

A quick search or traceroute on that site says its registered by Enom to..
ansar-alhaqq.net domain name record
Registrant:

Ahmed Sifaoui
St denis, St denis 93200 FR
Ahmed.Sifaoui@jubii.fr
More here on him at Internet Haganah.

Don't worry Jihadi's I'm sure Ahmed can be trusted not rat on you. ;-) Not like it matters though. Zionists are everywhere!
