Social Networks & The Online Jihad
World Threats.com ^ | October 26, 2011 | Posted by Candice Lanier

Posted on 10/31/2011 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."

Top Arabic Jihadi forums, 05 June 2011

Posted on June 4, 2011 4:30:34 PM PDT by Cindy

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
INTERNET-HAGANAH.com ^ | February 14, 2011 | n/a
Posted on February 14, 2011 2:16:36 PM PST by Cindy

“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.”

“DHS to set up policies for monitoring Twitter, Facebook
Homeland Security is working on guidelines to protect U.S. citizens’ rights while it looks at social media sites”

By Sharon Gaudin
November 1, 2011 04:54 PM ET

SNIPPET: “The DHS, whose mission is to protect the country from terrorist attacks, isn’t actively monitoring Facebook or Twitter. However, when the agency receives a tip about a potential threat, agents will scour public sites for information.”

SNIPPET: “Kerravala noted that it’s a good reminder for everyday social network users to be aware that what they post is often available for the public to see.

“You know that a lot of this information is being seen, maybe watched and maybe even archived,” he added. “Information doesn’t go away once it’s posted.””

“Deleting Online Jihad on Twitter: The Case of British Jihadi Anjem Choudary – Tweeting for the Caliphate and the Conquest of the White House”
By: Steven Stalinsky*

SNIPPET: “As part of their online media strategy, jihadi groups have in recent years begun using Western websites and technologies – uploading videos to YouTube[1] and to the Internet Archive,[2] creating official Facebook pages,[3] and tweeting news flashes from the jihadi fronts. Jihadis have come to depend on free web hosting, where content can be uploaded anonymously, reliably, and at no cost.[4]

Headquartered in San Francisco, California and with servers in San Antonio, Texas, Boston, Massachusetts, and New York, Twitter – the online social networking and microblogging service – is increasingly being used by terrorist organizations and their media outlets, and their online followers are growing in number. Twitter’s Terms of Service include some “restrictions on content” but do not mention terrorist groups.[5]

One of the many jihadi groups now utilizing Twitter is Al-Qaeda and its followers.”

“DHS, FBI Find ‘No Evidence’ of Public Water Utility Hack”
By Chloe Albanesius
November 23, 2011 02:14pm EST

SNIPPET: “The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI on Wednesday shot down reports that a cyber attack recently took down a pump at an Illinois public water utility.

“After detailed analysis, DHS and the FBI have found no evidence of a cyber intrusion into the SCADA system of the Curran-Gardner Public Water District in Springfield, Illinois,” a DHS spokesman said in a statement.”

“Illinois Water Utility Pump Destroyed After Hack”
By Chloe Albanesius
November 18, 2011 05:28pm EST

SNIPPET: “Joe Weiss, managing partner at Applied Control Systems LLC, said in a Thursday blog post that cyber scammers hacked a Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) software vendor and stole customer usernames and passwords. During the hack, however, the SCADA system was powered on and off, burning out a water pump, he said.

Department of Homeland Security spokesman Peter Boogaard said officials were investigating the incident.”

“Water-pump failure in Illinois wasn’t cyberattack after all”

By Ellen Nakashima, Friday, November 25, 1:53 PM

SNIPPET: “A water-pump failure in Illinois that appeared to be the first foreign cyberattack on a public utility in the United States was in fact caused by a plant contractor traveling in Russia, according to a source familiar with a federal investigation of the incident.

Investigators analyzed log files and connections to foreign Internet protocol addresses within the utility’s computer system, said the source, who was not authorized to speak for attribution. “No indictors of malicious activity were found” in the computer system of the Curran-Gardner Townships Public Water District in Springfield, the source said.”

shuratulmujahideen.blogspot.com/2011/11/they-desire-to-put-out-light-of-allah.html

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2011

SNIPPET: “After the arrest of our brother Muhammad Yusuf, who is also known as Jose Pimentel, for allegedly planning to set bombs off in New York and recruiting other brothers to do the same, of which is all lies aimed at scaring Muslims from using the internet and social networks for speaking the truth, Joseph Lieberman sent a letter to google calling on them to put in measures to restrict those who support the Mujahideen in using blogger as a platform to speak the truth.”

SNIPPET: “Due to America’s useless bureaucracies often its only until they receive a hard smack in the face do they realize they have any enemies. Often their only help comes from Jewish vigilantes such as the likes of forum.internet-haganah.com. The members of this forum spy on supporters of the mujahideen and collect information about them and their activities and give it to their governments who then make the arrests. I have found some of the blogs where they discuss their recent activities and share information between themselves.”

SNIPPET: “Their blogs and forums are open and as they keep an eye on us so should we keep an eye on them. Anyone who visits their site should use tor or any other software that hides ip adresses. If anyone can infiltrate their forum and gain their trust and in doing so gain information on them and expose it, they should do so. I understand this might be difficult but simply by saying this, if Allah wills, mistrust and suspicion for each other may enter their hearts. When they gather information on the supporters of the mujahideen, be it about their youtube channels and friends, blogger profiles and blogs or their facebook accounts, they share it among themselves by posting it on their forum (forum.internet-haganah.com). If any brother or sister is to come across this, make sure that you inform those who are being spied on so they may delete their accounts and start up new ones or at least so they may be more cautious.

It is expected that there will be some symbolic changes made by google after Joseph Lieberman’s request. It is quite possible that as they have been deleting videos of the mujahideen on youtube they will start deleting blogs that support the mujahideen. If that is their intentions then they have allot of work to do. I have noticed that youtube have recently slowed down in deleting Mujahideen Media videos as there is just too many to delete. My advice to the brothers and sisters is to spread the media of the Mujahideen as fast and as far as possible taking advantage of all social networks including blogger, youtube, twitter, wordpress and paltalk. Finally and most importantly make dua for our brothers and sisters who are kept locked up in the prisons of the kufaar around the world, may Allah help them to escape.
