Hacker Group Anonymous to ISIS: We Will Hunt You Down

The Islamic State has made a powerful enemy on the web: Anonymous.

The hacktivist group has released a list of over 1,000 social media accounts, email addresses, and recruitment sites used by the Islamic State to recruit new members, all of which have been “exposed and destroyed.”

#OPISIS, the name of Anonymous’ anti-ISIS campaign, has been around for a while, but intensified after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. Back in June, Anonymous told Forbesabout its plan to target countries that have been accused of funding ISIS:

“We plan on sending a straightforward message to Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and all other countries that evidently supply ISIS for their own gain.”

Anonymous’ war against ISIS hits the terrorist organization right where it hurts: On social media.

ISIS didn’t rise to prominence because it had the most guns. It rose to prominence because of its social media strategy, a campaign that began when it took Mosul and captured the world’s attention.

This is a terrorist group that thrives on its public image. It has its tendrils in Twitter, where it has an audience that disseminates messages establishing their brutality and omnipresence.

This image of an alleged ISIS member in front of the White House is not only meant to create fear, but also to inspire would-be followers into joining. The message is clear: ISIS is everywhere. ISIS is powerful. ISIS is infiltrating the United States.

AnonThe heart of ISIS’ power is in its social media campaign. Which is exactly why we need Anonymous.

Describing themselves as Muslims, Christians, Jews, and people from all walks of life, Anonymous is the antithesis of ISIS, and they have proven to be most effective at dismantling ISIS’ social media wing.

How ironic that they were once called “cyber terrorists.”

Anonymous reminds everyone that ISIS does not represent Islam, and reminds ISIS that there is no safe place for them on the Internet:

“Remember, the terrorists that are calling themselves Islamic State (IS) are not Muslims. ISIS, we will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails, and expose you. From now on, no safe place for you online.”

UNITED NATIONS ACTION TO COUNTER TERRORISM

Posted by :) on February 12, 2015

UNITED NATIONS ACTION TO COUNTER TERRORISM

All too often we are reminded that terrorism continues to inflict pain and suffering on people all over the world. Hardly a week goes by without an act of terrorism taking place somewhere in the world, indiscriminately affecting innocent people, who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Countering this scourge is in the interest of all nations and the issue has been on the agenda of the United Nations for decades.

Eighteen universal instruments (fourteen instruments and four amendments) against international terrorism have been elaborated within the framework of the United Nations system relating to specific terrorist activities. Member States, through the General Assembly, have been increasingly coordinating their counter-terrorism efforts and continuing their legal norm-setting work. The Security Council has also been active in countering terrorism through resolutions and by establishing several subsidiary bodies. At the same time a number of programmes, offices and agencies of the United Nations system have been engaged in specific activities against terrorism, further assisting Member States in their counter-terrorism efforts.

To consolidate and enhance these activities, Member States in September 2006 embarked upon a new phase in their counter-terrorism efforts by agreeing on a global strategy to counter terrorism. The Strategy marks the first time that all Member States of the United Nations have agreed to a common strategic and operational framework to fight terrorism. The Strategy forms a basis for a concrete plan of action: to address the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism; to prevent and combat terrorism; to take measures to build state capacity to fight terrorism; to strengthen the role of the United Nations in combating terrorism; and to ensure the respect of human rights while countering terrorism. The Strategy builds on the unique consensus achieved by world leaders at their 2005 September Summit to condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
