Terror group is a professional outfit that uses the most sophisticated technology to attract jihadists, experts warns

The terror group Isis is the most sophisticated and professional extremist group which is operating like a multinational company and using the very latest technology to attract would-be jihadists.

Alongside a stream of recruitment videos on social media, the group developed its own smartphone app to spread its messages and turn hundreds of thousands users in to automatic propaganda machines.

Isis even publishes an annual report in which it grimly spells out how many attacks it has carried out and how many people it has killed.

Shiraz Maher, from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at Kings College London, said: “Isis are the coolest, most attractive outfit right now to young people.

They have understood the value of having a strong brand, a corporate identity that people can engage with.”

Messages from apparent British jihadists show they are already under the influence of Isis and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

One said he had ordered his followers to "go back" to Britain.

It said: "@AbuRashashISIS: @AbuHussain101 I my brother intend to go back to #UK under the order of our Ameer Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi #foreign policy,".

The NSA probablygets those texts too but they’re probably ordered to stand down and do nothing about it at this point.

“The terror group Isis is the most sophisticated and professional extremist group....”

.
Wasn’t ISAS trained (and armed) by American instructors in Jordan?

No wonder they’re good in what they’re doing.

When they are finished in Iraq, they will turn around and find and kill their instructors and then sneak across our southern border.

America you have become famous for your stupidity.

Obama is whistling past the graveyard by covering up ISIS and claiming that the whole Iraq problem is a “sectarian conflict.”

It’s not. This is AQ 3.0. They’ve skipped the intervening versions.
