We just want the Foley family to know the Jawas are doing what we can. May James RIP.
And it seems the world is finally coming around to our view that Islamic Terror Propaganda is something to be fought actively. We've noticed that providers, especially Google has been more cooperative in removing ISIS propaganda lately. Since Obama has acted in Iraq. Good for them. Not only are they taking down the Foley Murder videos they are erasing all traces from Google's Cache.
But lets get one thing clear, this is NOT President Obama's fault.
Evil people do evil things. ISIS are evil. We must fight evil. Its that simple.
And I also want to thank all those others across the web who are fighting this release.
There's more work to be done on this.

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?

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."

Shabaab Loses Twitter
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The flagship Twitter account of al-Shabab, Somalia's al-Qaida-linked terror group, was closed Friday for the second time this year, less than 24 hours after a U.S.-based terrorism expert reported violations of Twitter's terms of service.Thanks to....
The closure comes only days after al-Shabab claimed a failed assassination attempt against Somalia's president and tweeted that the next time the president wouldn't be so lucky.
Al-Shabab uses Twitter mainly to make claims of enemy kills and to spread its view of events in Somalia and East Africa. A United Nations report on Somalia released last month said U.N. experts believe the person running the English-language account is a British member of al-Shabab.

Thursday Afettat Kamal was arrested after threatening Mons written three teachers Antwerp. It turns out that the man is a bosses Sharia4Belgium, this movement of Salafist extremists. The Montois was also present on the Internet where it broadcast videos, photos and extremist texts. He lived quietly in the floor of Roeulx.This isn't the first time the long time terrorist supporter has been arrested. He's also a long time nemesis and troll here at Jawa Report.
Before yesterday, the Antwerp police went to Mons to stop Kamal Afettat. The man threatened three teachers of kindergarten and primary school in Antwerp.
In summary, in June, a scandal in Antwerp school. Several rumors of abuse of children enrolled in "From Blokkendoos" grow the business to close its doors and send their children on holiday earlier. An investigation was opened.
From the beginning, Kamal Afettat interested in the case, we specify our colleagues from Nieuwsblad. He contacted the parents involved and publish the names of teachers mentioned on his blog, Censored31. He did not stop there as he threatened the ladies on their Facebook profile.
We feel a very personal and heartfelt satisfaction each and every time he is subjected to a full body cavity search.
He's been running posts about supposed child abuse by Belgian officials for some time now. With several, in this reporter's opinion, to be attempts at blackmail. Repeatedly threatening to publish damning photo evidence "Unless".
Its one of his Anti-Semitic Khinspiracy theories. Belgian authorities have repeatedly investigated and found no wrong doing.

Heartbreak Co-Conspirator in Jihad Jane Case Can't Pray in Irish Prison Because of the Porn
An Algerian man jailed in Ireland and wanted by the United States on terrorism charges filed a damages suit against the Irish state on Tuesday, saying his prison conditions were "not even suitable for animals".Oh the horror, if anyone has, you know, contact with some of Damache neighbors, ask them to put this one up for us.
Ali Charaf Damache is wanted by the FBI for conspiracy in a foiled international plot to murder a Swedish cartoonist whose depiction of the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog caused outrage in Muslim countries.
"Cork Prison is not even suitable for animals," Damache, 47, told the High Court. "There was a television and radio (in my cell). When I practiced my prayer they (cellmates) deliberately put the volume up (and) they put pictures of naked women on the wall. I can't pray in a place where there are naked pictures..."
Damache said he had been unable to wash before prayer and handling the Koran, as his faith requires, and was usually allowed to shower and change his underwear just once a week
Also I hear there is a rumor he's keeping hashish in his rectum. Better check that.
Damache was convicted in the Jihad Jane plot. Another accomplice Jihad Jamie (aka Jamie Paulin-Ramirez married Damache upon her arrival in Ireland only to find that Damache was only interested in the Muslima as a sex slave.

Canadian Terrorist Chiheb Esseghaier's Facebook Jihad
That is until Facebook got bad press from Walid Shoebat, now suddenly they decide maybe they'll take it down.
World Net Daily reported late last night the publication of al Qaeda terrorism plans on the Facebook page of Chiheb Esseghaier, the Tunisian man suspected of involvement in the thwarted attempt to derail a Canadian train. The picture above is a screen shot of that Facebook page taken by Walid Shoebat, a Palestinian former Muslim who is now a Christian. Esseghairer's Facebook page was removed shortly after Shoebat took the screen shot.Hats off to Walid for taking down yet another Facebook terrorist.
The World Net Daily story says, “At the top is a detailed flowchart on al-Qaida’s plans, command and control, and methodology – from leadership to cell creation,” Shoebat explained on his website. “His favorites include several links to some of the most notorious terror groups including a Facebook dedicated for the famed Abu Mus’ab Zarkawi. On that Facebook page, it gives a glimpse of the al-Qaida recruitment in the Levant (Syria).”

Facebook Bans PFLP
press spokesman of the PFLP General Command of the management of the social networking site "Facebook", closed all accounts of the Front for the second time within a year, without any legal justification.
No legal justification? Actually for the period the PFLP was using Facebook, Facebook was in violation of the law for providing material support for a specially designated terrorist entity.
PFLP is considered a terrorist organization by the United States, European Union, Canada, United Kingdom and Israel.In their stereotypical style the PFLP promptly blamed the Jews and threatened to file suit for damages.
The PFLP has generally taken a hard line on Palestinian national aspirations, opposing the more moderate stance of Fatah. It opposes negotiations with the Israeli government, and favours a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The military wing of the PFLP is called the Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades. The PFLP is well known for pioneering armed aircraft hijackings in the late '60s and early '70s.
File suit for damages? See the terrorists consider their web presence an asset. These Assets should be seized and frozen, intelligence exceptions should be few and far between.
Its seem that since the Boston Bombing and the beheading in London the policy has begun to shift. Shame it took that.

The CIA Likes To Watch
U.S. intelligence operatives covertly sabotaged a prominent al-Qaeda online magazine last month in an apparent attempt to sow confusion among the group’s followers, according to officials.Its a bit early to be spiking the football on this methinks. Cause I dare say in its history Jawa Report has disrupted more terrorist propaganda than the entire federal government ever has, and that's taking into account that since Obama took office taking out online terrorist websites and videos with terms of service complaints has become much more difficult. Way more difficult than under the Bush administration.
... “It’s obvious if people are calling for crazies to murder a U.S. citizen, why wouldn’t you stop it?” said one former official, recalling the debate in which National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith B. Alexander argued on behalf of disruption.
In that case, the administration decided against action, in part because the CIA preferred to use the site to gather intelligence. In subsequent debates, the danger of an imminent threat “really made the difference” in terms of whether to disrupt issues of the magazine, according to a former administration official.
Its almost as if someone is protecting terrorist websites and propaganda afraid that they'll miss something? But as we've seen allowing unlimited, unmolested terrorist propaganda to spread creates more terrorists than you can watch.
Its time the word was put out that if you host the propaganda of or advocate for a specially designated terrorist entity that you WILL BE TARGETED, DISRUPTED and prosecuted. Its also time to let providers who knowingly provide services to specially designated terrorist groups that the cost will be far more than what they earn by providing these services.
Of course there are certain high level forums where the intelligence value may outweigh the cost of a takedown. But for the vast majority of terrorist propaganda this is simply not true. In such cases what intelligence can be gathered should be done quickly, followed by offensive countermeasures to remove, disable, disrupt and humiliate the lower level terror propaganda.
The benefits, less terrorists being radicalized online, the rest of the cats herded so to speak. The downside, breeding resistant pests. Serious players will harden their sites and redouble their efforts, which yields a list of serious players.
See how this works?
Yes we can limit and thwart the propaganda of al-Qaeda. The problem is, for the most part we don't.

Pakistan's Terror Group (LeT) Upper Income Recruits
From the "let's pump more money into Pakistan to help the poor little ole impoverished from joining Lashkar-e-Tayyiba" files:
[MoneyJihad]Far from being impoverished orphans, the young men recruited by Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) tend to be among “the best and brightest” of Pakistani society, according to a study released last month by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point based on biographies of 917 LeT members.h/t meankitteh1
The findings severely undercut British Prime Minister David Cameroon’s position that Western development aid to Pakistan improves education and reduces poverty which in turn prevents extremism.
The foreign aid is not preventing terrorist recruitment, some of the aid is stolen by Pakistani elites, and some of the aid is given to terrorist groups through Pakistan’s ISI spy service. There is no longer any justifiable reason to continue transferring taxpayer money from the West to Pakistan.

San Antonio, TX: Accused Alleged Hezbollah Member Referred To As God Of Death...
Update on my previous post regarding a lying sack of alleged 'ex' Hezbollah shite who tried to get a sensitive DoD position.
This is disturbing, is so many ways: [Prosecutor]Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”"
In the defense's version, Wissam Allouche was a former linguist for the U.S. Army who ran a gas station in Northeast San Antonio as he became an American citizen.Allouche was a Israeli POW:
But to counterterrorism officials, Allouche, 44, belonged to Hezbollah, falsely claimed to be a U.S. special forces officer during visits to Fort Sam Houston, and even tried to hook up with women at the post, possibly to gain access to sensitive information.[...]
For more than three years, the task force has been investigating Allouche, and even used an undercover person to record conversations with him, authorities said.
The FBI raided his then-home in Universal City in 2011, and found documents which they claim he fabricated to falsely show he had security clearances, membership in U.S. special forces and Defense Department intelligence units.
“He admitted on tape that he was a member of Amal and that he was a commander of Hezbollah,” prosecutor Mark Roomberg told the judge, who agreed to keep Allouche behind bars pending trial.
Roomberg also claimed Allouche admitted “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”[...]
Army Criminal Investigations agent Jeff Cram, a member of the task force, testified that an investigation revealed Allouche's ties. And, Cram said, Allouche was seen by at least two people at Fort Sam dressed in U.S. military uniform displaying insignias from special forces.Continued below:
See another profile of the allahdouche here
He also boasted to women on base of being in the special forces, Cram testified.Wow, just wow.
While Orr argued that it could have simply been flirtation, Roomberg and Cram alleged a “honey pot” or a “honey trap” situation — recruiting someone into espionage through a romantic relationship.
“So being flirtatious would give him access” to sensitive information? Roomberg asked.
“Yes, sir,” Cram responded.
Cram also testified the task force received eight photos from a source showing Allouche during his days with Amal and Hezbollah. In them, he's holding assault rifles or rocket propelled grenades, Cram said.
“He was given at least three aliases,” Cram testified.
One meant “god of death,” Cram said, adding that Allouche was also known for “acting crazy or acting dangerously.”
If convicted of lying in his naturalization forms, Allouche faces up to 10 years in prison, and his citizenship would be revoked. He faces up to five years for the charge of lying on security-clearance forms.

US Treasury Targets Iran’s Nuclear and Missile Proliferation Activities
You can read it all at Internet Haganah
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury is taking action today against 20 individuals and entities for their involvement in Iran’s nuclear and missile proliferation networks and Iran’s continued attempts to circumvent sanctions. These networks are responsible for moving supplies and providing essential services to Iran’s clandestine nuclear and weapons programs. These actions are designed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime by tightening sanctions against Iran’s energy sector and exposing key proliferation related networks that span the globe from Europe to Asia.Meanwhile, missiles stand ready in Israel with the the mad mullah's names on them.
“As long as Iran continues to pursue a nuclear and ballistic missile program in defiance of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions, the U.S. will target and disrupt those involved in Iran’s illicit activities,” said Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen. “We will continue to work with our international partners to intensify this pressure and tighten sanctions on Iran’s energy sector as it provides much needed financial support for the Iranian regime’s proliferation activity.”
Fourteen of the entities and individuals being designated today are part of Iran’s international procurement and proliferation operations. These designations are being made pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13382, which targets weapons of mass destruction proliferators and their supporters. The designations focus on entities and individuals supporting previously designated entities within Iran’s proliferation network as well as Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Naftiran Intertrade Company (NICO), and Iran’s Ministry of Defense for Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL). These organizations are at the center of Iran’s continued proliferation activities. Today’s designations include companies supporting IRGC attempts to clandestinely ship illicit cargo around the world, including to Syria. They also target the Deputy Defense Minister and Dean of Malek Ashtar University, who is responsible for significant contributions to Iran’s missile program, as well as companies and individuals supporting Iran’s nuclear program.
