Jihadis Online: A Few Thoughts
Society For Internet Research ^ | JULY 5, 2011 | S.O.F.I.R.

Posted on 07/24/2012 3:24:56 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: "I. When considering the matter of jihadis online, remember that most of what we think we know is based on analyses of the comments made by an handful of vocal activists. The vast majority of jihadis online, be they on forums or social networking sites[i], say nothing. Skillful translations and insightful analyses by definition tell us little about this potentially lethal yet silent majority."

NOTE The following text is a quote:

Worldwide Caution

July 18, 2012

The Department of State has issued this Worldwide Caution to update information on the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world. U.S. citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness. This replaces the Worldwide Caution dated January 24, 2012, to provide updated information on security threats and terrorist activities worldwide.

The Department of State remains concerned about the continued threat of terrorist attacks, demonstrations, and other violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests overseas. Current information suggests that al-Qaida, its affiliated organizations, and other terrorist organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics including suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings.

Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. Examples of such targets include high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, and other tourist destinations both in the United States and abroad where U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during holidays.

U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Extremists have targeted and attempted attacks on subway and rail systems, aviation, and maritime services. In the past, these types of attacks have occurred in cities such as Moscow, London, Madrid, Glasgow, and New York City.

EUROPE: Current information suggests that al-Qaida, its affiliated organizations and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. and Western interests in Europe. European governments have taken action to guard against terrorist attacks, and some have spoken publicly about the heightened threat conditions. In the past several years, attacks have been planned or occurred in various European cities.

MIDDLE EAST and NORTH AFRICA: Credible information indicates terrorist groups also seek to continue attacks against U.S. interests in the Middle East and North Africa. For example, Iraq remains dangerous and unpredictable. U.S. military forces were withdrawn as of December 31, 2011 but the threat of attacks against U.S. citizens, including kidnapping and terrorist violence, is expected to continue. Methods of attack have included roadside improvised explosive devices, mortars, and shootings. Terrorist organizations continue to be active in Yemen, including al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). A U.S. citizen was attacked and killed in Taiz on March 18 and the press reports that AQAP claimed responsibility. Security threat levels remain high in Yemen due to terrorist activities there and the U.S. government remains highly concerned about possible attacks against U.S. citizens, facilities, businesses, and perceived U.S. and Western interests. U.S. citizens have also been the targets of numerous terrorist attacks in Lebanon in the past (though none recently) and the threat of anti-Western terrorist activity continues to exist there. In Algeria, terrorist attacks occur regularly, particularly in the Kabylie region of the country. In the past, terrorists have targeted oil processing facilities in both Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Some elements in Iran remain hostile to the United States. U.S. citizens should remain cautious and be aware that there may be a more aggressive focus by the Iranian government on terrorist activity against U.S citizens.

The events of last year’s Arab Spring, which affected many countries in the Middle East including Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Syria, resulted in civil unrest and large-scale protests and demonstrations. U.S. citizens are warned that demonstrations intended to be peaceful can escalate into violent clashes. U.S. citizens are also reminded that demonstrations and riots can occur with little or no warning. U.S. citizens are urged to avoid areas of demonstrations if possible and to exercise caution if within the vicinity of a demonstration.

AFRICA: A number of al-Qaida operatives and other extremists are believed to be operating in and around Africa. In February 2012, the emir of U.S-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization al-Shabaab and al-Qaida’s leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, announced the alliance of the two organizations. Al-Shabaab assassinations, suicide bombings, and indiscriminate attacks in civilian-populated areas are frequent in Somalia. The terrorist attacks in Somalia in late 2011 against the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and African Union (AU) peacekeeping forces in Somalia that have killed numerous civilians in various districts around Mogadishu, as well as at least 17 attacks involving grenades or explosive devices in Kenya over the past year, highlight the vulnerabilities to terrorist attacks in East Africa and around the world. Additionally, the terrorist group al-Qaida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has declared its intention to attack Western targets throughout the Sahel (which includes Mali, Mauritania, and Niger). It has claimed responsibility for kidnappings, attempted kidnappings, and the murder of several Westerners throughout the region, including southern Algeria. The loosely organized group of factions known as Boko Haram continues to carry out significant improvised explosive device and suicide bombings in northern Nigeria, mainly targeting government forces and innocent civilians; attacks have increased since their attack on the UN building in the capital of Abuja last year. The President of Nigeria declared a state of emergency in certain areas in response to activities of extremist groups.

U.S. citizens considering travel by sea near the Horn of Africa or in the southern Red Sea should exercise extreme caution, as there have been armed attacks, robberies, and kidnappings for ransom by pirates. Merchant vessels continue to be hijacked in Somali territorial waters, while others have been hijacked as far as 1,000 nautical miles off the coast of Somalia, Yemen, and Kenya in international waters.

The U.S. government maritime authorities advise mariners to avoid the port of Mogadishu and to remain at least 200 nautical miles off the coast of Somalia. In addition, when transiting around the Horn of Africa or in the Red Sea, it is strongly recommended that vessels travel in convoys and maintain good communications at all times. U.S. citizens traveling on commercial passenger vessels should consult with the shipping or cruise ship company regarding precautions that will be taken to avoid hijacking incidents. Commercial vessels should review the Department of Transportation Maritime Administration’s Horn of Africa Piracy page for information on maritime advisories, self-protection measures, and naval forces in the region. Review our International Maritime Piracy Fact Sheet for information on piracy in the southern Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden, and the Indian Ocean.

SOUTH ASIA: The U.S. government continues to receive information that terrorist groups in South Asia may also be planning attacks in the region, possibly against U.S. government facilities, U.S. citizens, or U.S. interests. The presence of al-Qaida, Taliban elements, Lashkar-e-Taiba, indigenous sectarian groups, and other terror organizations, many of which are on the U.S. government’s list of Foreign Terror Organizations (FTOs), poses a potential danger to U.S. citizens in the region. Terrorists and their sympathizers have demonstrated their willingness and ability to attack targets where U.S. citizens or Westerners are known to congregate or visit. Their actions may include, but are not limited to, vehicle-born explosive attacks, improvised explosive device attacks, assassinations, carjackings, rocket attacks, assaults, or kidnappings.

Such attacks have occurred in a number of South Asian states, including Pakistan, where a number of extremist groups continue to target U.S. and other Western citizens and interests, and Pakistani government and military/law enforcement personnel. Suicide bombing attacks continue to occur throughout the country on a regular basis, often targeting government authorities such as police checkpoints and military installations, as well as public areas such as mosques, and shopping areas. Kidnappings of U.S. citizens are also on the increase. No part of Afghanistan should be considered immune from violence, and the potential exists throughout the country for hostile acts, either targeted or random, against U.S. and other Western nationals at any time. Elements of the Taliban and the al-Qaida terrorist network, as well as other groups hostile to International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) military operations, remain active. There is an ongoing threat of kidnapping and assassination of U.S. citizens and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) workers throughout the country. India continues to experience terrorist and insurgent activities which may affect U.S. citizens directly or indirectly. Anti-Western terrorist groups, some on the U.S. government’s list of designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, are active in India, including Islamist extremist groups such as Harkat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami, Harakat ul-Mujahidin, Indian Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed, and Lashkar-e Tayyiba. Terrorists have targeted public placesin Indiafrequented by Westerners, including luxury and other hotels, trains, train stations, markets, cinemas, mosques, and restaurants in large urban areas.

CENTRAL ASIA: Supporters of terrorist groups such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, al-Qaida, the Islamic Jihad Union, and the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement remain active in Central Asia. These groups have expressed anti-U.S. sentiments and may attempt to target U.S. government interests.

Before You Go

The Department of State encourages U.S. citizens living overseas or planning to travel abroad to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). When you enroll in STEP, we can keep you up to date with important safety and security announcements. Enrolling will also make it easier for the Embassy to contact you in the event of an emergency. You should remember to keep all of your information in STEP up to date; it is particularly important when you enroll or update your information to include a current phone number and e-mail address.

U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance, be aware of local events, and take the appropriate steps to bolster their personal security. For additional information, please refer to “A Safe Trip Abroad”.

U.S. government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert. These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public services to assess their security posture. In those instances, U.S. embassies and consulates will make every effort to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens abroad are urged to monitor the local news and maintain contact with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

As the Department of State continues to develop information on potential security threats to U.S. citizens overseas, it shares credible threat information through its Consular Information Program documents, including Travel Warnings, Travel Alerts, Country Specific Information, and Emergency Messages, all of which are available on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website at http://travel.state.gov/. Stay up to date by bookmarking our website or downloading our free Smart Traveler iPhone App for travel information at your fingertips. Follow us on Twitter and the Bureau of Consular Affairs page on Facebook as well.

In addition to information on the internet, travelers may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or, from other countries, on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday, Eastern Time (except U.S. federal holidays).

Al-Qaida’s online forums go dark
UPI ^ | Published: April 2, 2012 at 2:37 PM | n/a
Posted on April 2, 2012 4:31:33 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) — A blackout of al-Qaida’s main Web sites is in its 11th day, and officials think the forums may have been brought down in a cyberattack.

While no one has claimed credit for disabling the sites...”

SNIPPET: “The loss of information typically confuses and frustrates the readers of the Web sites.

“It leaves the rank-and-file to guess which messages and which messengers are genuine al-Qaida, and provides undercover operators with new opportunities to disrupt the movement,” said A. Aaron Weisburd, senior fellow at the Homeland Security Policy Institute.”

“Social Networks & The Online Jihad”
World Threats.com ^ | October 26, 2011 | Posted by Candice Lanier
Posted on October 31, 2011 1:38:14 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “In July, the British government warned that Al Qaeda’s exploitation of social networking websites is on the rise.”

SNIPPET: “The massive and multifarious network of websites and social media has presented a challenge to authorities in trying to combat it. Additionally, civil liberty concerns have conflicted with government efforts to spy on communications.

Reducing terrorist activity on social media sites has been particularly difficult because users have adopted new forms of communication to conform with the new formats. Many Arabic speakers on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other sites use Arabizi, a form of colloquial Arabic written in the Latin alphabet and numbers. This allows the use of a standard English-language keyboard for typing messages. There exists, however, no standard version of Arabizi. It varies from country to country, even among groups within countries and is affected by differences in dialect.”

SNIPPET: “Note: PWP stands for PassWord-Protected, meaning that a login is required to view - let alone participate in - discussions. Since some in the audience don’t understand the significance of this, allow me to spell it out: if only members can read the forum, then anyone observed reading the forum is a member. They have zero deniability (they couldn’t have accidentally “wandered into” the site), and they had to make the effort to join (an expression of intent).

While the goal here is to present a range of sites, the fact is that the jihadis themselves have largely coalesced at Shmukh and Ansar Arabic.”

“TOP TEN JIHADI FORUMS, AS OF 14 FEBRUARY, 2011”

SNIPPET: “Assembled with the help of my dear brothers in Fateh al-Islam (and their minders in the Syrian intelligence service). The [PWP] notation indicates the site is password protected. There’s nothing worse than the mournful wailing of analysts, graduate students, and reporters who find themselves locked out of their favorite forum. Join early, join often, save important discussions as you find them, try not to say anything too embarrassing, and if you’re a civilian, make some effort to let your friendly neighborhood secret police know that you’re a good guy, not a bad guy, so they don’t have to waste time and money investigating you. Forums are not just websites, they are battlefields, and spectators are not particularly welcome by any of the combatants.”

“Terrorist worked in Scottish pubs to bankroll suicide bomb attack in Stockholm”
Jul 21 2012 By Paul O’Hare

SNIPPET: “A TERRORIST took part-time jobs in Glasgow pubs to bankroll a suicide bomb attack.

Algerian Nasserdine Menni worked hard, spent frugally and gave the impression he was saving for a better life – but the truth was far more sinister.

On December 11, 2010, the fruits of his labour – and his illegal benefit claims – made headlines around the world.

At 4.48pm, a car bomb rocked a busy street filled with Christmas shoppers in Sweden’s capital Stockholm.

It was followed 12 minutes later by a second blast as his close friend Taimour Abdulwahab detonated an explosive vest strapped to his torso.”

The Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei first got to grips with Twitter and now he has decided to have a go at photo-sharing on Instagram.

Retro-style pictures of the veteran religious figurehead have appeared on his Twitter account apparently posted by him.”

Hide files within files for better data security (within executables)
Inderscience Publishers ^ | May 9, 2011 | Unknown
Posted on May 9, 2011 12:16:03 PM PDT by decimon

Using executable program files to hide data with steganography

Steganography is a form of security through obscurity in which information is hidden within an unusual medium. An artist might paint a coded message into a portrait, for instance, or an author embed words in the text. A traditional paper watermark is a well-known example of steganography in action. At first glance, there would appear to be nothing unusual about the work, but a recipient aware of the presence of the hidden message would be able to extract it easily. In the computer age, steganography has become more of a science than an art.

Those intent on hiding information from prying eyes can embed data in the many different file types that are ostensibly music files (mp3), images (jpeg), video (mpeg4) or word-processing documents. Unfortunately, there is a limit to how much hidden data can be embedded in such files without it becoming apparent that something is hidden because the file size increases beyond what one might expect to see for a common music or video file, for instance. A five minute music file in mp3 format and the widespread sampling rate of 128 kilobits per second, for instance, is expected to be about 5 megabytes in size. Much bigger and suspicions would be aroused as to the true nature of the file, examination with widely available mp3-tagging software would reveal something amiss with the file’s contents. The same could be said for almost all other file types.

However, one group of files that vary enormously in size and are usually rather difficult to examine in detail because they comprise of compiled computer code are executable, or exe, files. These files tend to contain lots of what might be described as “junk data” of their own as well as internal programmer notes and identifiers, redundant sections of code and infuriatingly in some senses coding “bloat”. All of this adds up to large and essentially random file sizes for exe files. As such, it might be possible to embed and hide large amounts of data in encoded form in an exe file without disrupting the file’s ability to be executed, or run, as a program but crucially without anyone discovering that the exe file has a dual function.

Computer scientists Rajesh Kumar Tiwari of the GLNA Institute of Technology, in Mathura and G. Sahoo of the Birla Institute of Technology, in Mesra, Ranchi, India, have developed just such an algorithm for embedding hidden data in an executable file. They provide details in the International Journal of Internet Technology and Secured Transactions. The algorithm has been built into a program with graphical user interface that would take a conventional exe file and the data to be hidden as input and merge the two producing a viable exe file with a hidden payload. The technology could be used on smart phones, tablet PCs, portable media players and any other information device on which a user might wish to hide data.

Friday, August 10, 2012

SNIPPET: “LONDON — They’ve been called “megaphone jihadists,” radical Muslims who take to the streets of Western cities demanding Islamic sharia law.

It’s a rising movement in Europe that also shows signs of growth in America.

Meet Anjem Choudary”

SNIPPET: “Choudary’s public support for jihad against British troops keeps his group on the radar of the country’s intelligence services.

Some of his followers have been arrested on terrorism charges.”

SNIPPET: “But Choduary gives no guarantees whether that will be the case. For now, he’s encouraged by the Islamist regimes coming to power as result of the so-called Arab Spring and takes it as a sign that his goal of a global caliphate is inevitable.”

WASHINGTON —

SNIPPET: “Choudary is the leader of Islam4UK, a group recently banned in Britain under the country’s counter-terrorism laws. He wants Islamic Sharia law to rule the United Kingdom and is working to make that dream a reality.

While Islamic radicals in the United States usually prefer to speak in more moderate tones while in public, masking their true agenda, Choudary has no such inhibitions.”

SNIPPET: “Choudary says his group is merely following core Islamic teachings and that Islam is much more than a religion.”

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: While guys like Yarahmadi may be in Iran, there are many more like them out there, they are all on Facebook, and they are not all in Iran. You can sit there and say “gee, that’s too bad” or you can you join the hunt. The country you help may be your own, because this isn’t about being nice to persecuted Iranian college students - however much one might sympathize them. It is about defending the rest of us from Khamenei and his legion of thugs who, even without nuclear weapons, represent a serious threat to our national interests and security.”

 Treasury Issues General License to Aid Iranian Earthquake Victims

8/21/2012

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the issuance of a temporary general license to ease financial transactions related to earthquake relief in Iran.  Since the August 11, 2012 earthquake that hit northwestern Iran, the United States has made it clear that it would offer assistance to the Iranian people as they recover and rebuild.  The Iranian government has not accepted the U.S. offer of assistance, but non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have been assisting in the relief efforts. To assist their efforts, OFAC issued a temporary general license today, which authorizes, for the next 45 days, NGOs with 501(c)(3) status to collect funds to be used in direct support of humanitarian relief and reconstruction activities in response to the earthquake. The general license is a demonstration of the Administration’s commitment to supporting the Iranian people affected by this tragedy, and responds to the American people’s desire to provide immediate assistance.  

Under the general license, which will remain in effect until October 5, 2012, an NGO can transfer funds up to $300,000 during the 45-day period to Iran to be used for humanitarian relief and reconstruction activities related to the earthquake response. NGOs interested in transferring more than $300,000 during the 45-day period may apply for a specific license.  It is important to note that the general license specifically forbids any dealings or involvement with individuals or entities designated for support for the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction or terrorism, such as the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), as listed on the Treasury Department’s List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List).

Donations of food and medicine to Iran already do not require a license from OFAC.  These donations, when intended to be used to relieve human suffering, are exempt from the sanctions on trade between the U.S. and Iran, as long as the donations are not being sent to the Government of Iran or any Iranian individual or entity on the Treasury Department’s SDN List.  For all practical purposes, such donations to the Iranian people, including transactions needed to ship permissible donations, can occur without a specific license from OFAC.

He is a leading authority on the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda, and the global Islamist movement.

Whither the jihadi forums?
INTERNET-HAGANAH.com ^ | August 1, 2011 | n/a
Posted on August 1, 2011 1:10:28 PM PDT by Cindy

http://internet-haganah.com/harchives/007413.html

“Whither the jihadi forums?”

SNIPPET: “There are currently only three jihadi forums that are sufficiently active and well-connected to be of any interest whatsoever. Why we claim to be on the verge of defeating al-Qaida while simultaneously watching passively as they use these forums to regroup and regenerate is beyond me.

These are the forums three:

• al-Fidaa, a forum created by al-Qaida core. That it is directly linked to al-Qaida by definition moves it to the top of the list. Current membership: 2,462, all of whom can be considered “active” if only because they just joined the forum.

• al-Shmukh, a forum with a long history that includes connections al-Qaida core. Current membership: 14,327.

• Ansar al-Mujahideen Arabic Forum, which was stood up with the assistance of at least one individual with bona fide connections to al-Qaida core. Current membership: about 10,000.

Some conclusions and some speculation:

1. There are far fewer jihadi activists on the Arabic forums than there used to be. With each round of shutdowns a portion of the membership never comes back (they had probably already become inactive).

2. A portion of the jihadi community globally bypasses the forums entirely, and instead relies on Facebook and Youtube. This seems particularly true of Western jihadis, the HVEs.

Former British MP George Galloway Accuses Israel of Al-Hariri’s Assassination...
MEMRI TV ^ | July 26, 2011 | Al-Manar TV (Lebanon)
Posted on August 1, 2011 6:43:13 PM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis

Following are excerpts from an interview with former British MP George Galloway, which aired on Al-Manar TV on July 26, 2011:

George Galloway: I support the government of Lebanon’s rejection of the fake indictment [for the Al-Hariri assassination]. I know it is fake because we are now into the third incarnation of the identity of the criminals who killed the marrty Rafiq Al-Hariri. The first accusation was against Syria. The second accusation was against Hizbullah. Now all the hostility against the Syrian regime is coming back, and we are returning to accusations of the Syrian regime and of Hizubllah.

This inquiry looked everywhere, except the most obvious place – Israel. Israel was the only country with any interest and any benefit to gain from the assassination of the martyr Rafiq Al-Hariri. They are the ones who had the capability to do so, they are the ones who had the motive for doing so, and they are the ones who had the criminal record for doing so. How many hundreds of people has Israel killed in Lebanon? Assassination squads of people landing on the beach, and people planting bombs of one kind or another…

When this inquiry refused to lead in that direction, I knew it was a fake inquiry. This was a lynch mob, as they say in the Untied States – when people used to go looking for a black man to hang, when people used to go looking for a black man to hang, irrespective of who committed the crime. But this process and all these individuals are completely discredited.

[…]

Don’t get me wrong – I have never been in my life, and I am not now, a supporter of Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi. I don’t like or admire Al-Qadhafi at all, but NATO is worse than Al-Qadhafi. If the Libyan people allow an imperialist base to be created in their country, they will not just be going back to the days of the stooge king whose flag they are flying now in Benghazi, but they will be allowing a base for a conspiracy against the revolution in Egypt and Tunisia, and a reconfiguration of imperialist interests in the region.

[…]

“Densus 88 Arrests Suspected Terrorist in Raid”
Yuli Krisna & Farouk Arnaz | August 31, 2012

SNIPPET: “Arcamanik Police chief I Ketut Adi Purnama identified the suspect arrested in the raid as Maman Kurniawan, said to be a computer expert from Karawang, West Java.

“We have reason to believe it is part of a terrorist network,” Ketut said.

Ketut said investigators seized two computers belonging to the suspect and a book titled “Perang Akhir Jaman,” or “End of Days War.”

A Densus 88 source told the Jakarta Globe that Maman, who also goes by the name Ashaburayatisud, is linked to terrorism suspect Rizki Gunawan.

“We suspect that [Maman] is a hacker,” the source said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak.

Rizki is also a computer expert and reportedly hacked into a multi-level marketing firm and raised Rp 5.9 billion ($618,000) to support terrorism activities including the bombing of a church in Solo last year.”
