"Invading Facebook: Theory And Practice"

"Invading Facebook: Theory And Practice" December 17th, 2008 | Jihadi media, propaganda

SNIPPET: "That’s the title of a post last week by Faloja member `Umar `Abd al-Hakim in Syria. `Umar believes that Jihadis have successfully penetrated Youtube and it’s now time to more directly market their materials to the masses. To this end, he gives an overview of Facebook and why it will be useful for Jihadi propagandists. To get the ball rolling, `Umar and others announced a campaign yesterday, “Aid Invasion2″ (Ghazwat al-Nusra2). Below is a summary of `Umar’s introductory post, followed by the announcement of the campaign.

Note that the Facebook invaders believe the propaganda front is outside of the Jihadi forums, a point I have made repeatedly. Moreover, this is not an attempt to replicate the social networks that exist on the forums; the members of the campaign want to exploit existing networks of people who are hostile to them and presumably they will adopt new identities once they have posted their material. Additionally, `Umar believes this is a solution to the recent closure of prominent Jihadi forums and channels of media distribution. Finally, the structure of the Nusra2 campaign organization is interesting: compartmentalized and hierarchical.`Umar’s “Raiding Facebook: Theory and Practice”:"

SNIPPET: "I’ve called this campaign “Ghazwat al-Nusra2″ (Aid Invasion2) because we are aiding our brothers on the forums: Hesbah, Firdaws, Boraq, and Ekhlaas."

It’s amazing how people in the dangerousu world today naively post their photos on Facebook and let an extended network know know about themselves, their families, and every time they have a flatulent moment.

Jihadist Group Trying to ‘Invade’ Facebook Gets Shut Down
FoxNews.com ^ | Friday, December 19, 2008 | Joel Mowbray
Posted on December 19, 2008 4:35:43 PM PST by Joiseydude

A quickly growing jihadist group that used Facebook to spread its radical message has been shut down by the popular Web networking site after FOXNews.com alerted the company to the group’s activities.

Facebook blocked the group, Fursan Ghazawat Alnusra — Arabic for “Knights in Support of the Invasion” — Thursday evening after the group swelled to about 120 members in just over one week.

The group had been exhorting its members to wage “Jihad to aid the religion of Allah and his Prophet.”

“ACTION ALERT: Fox News Finally “Covers” the Issues On Facebook (only to pat itself on the back for taking down one tiny Jihadist group)”

SNIPPPET: “For 10 months, thousands of JIDF activists have been sending thousands of emails to hundreds of media organizations about the problems on Facebook. We have also been reporting hundreds of antisemitic and pro-Jihadist Facebook groups, thousands of times. Today, one mainstream news organization FINALLY touched upon the problems on Facebook.”

Facebook Fail
December 22nd, 2008 | Uncategorized, propaganda

Nusra2 announced yesterday that its Facebook raid was a failure. Over 120 people signed up but the group was shut down after only 2 days. Somehow, the statement says, the mainstream media got wind of what was happening and Facebook took action. Nevertheless, two new groups have formed, one in English and the other in Arabic.
