WTF ? WTF ?....Support for Isis stronger in Arabic social media in Europe than in Syria

Support for Islamic State (Isis) among Arabic-speaking social media users in Belgium, Britain, France and the US is greater than in the militant group’s heartlands of Syria and Iraq, a global analysis of over 2m Arabic-language online posts has found.

In what is understood to be the first rigorous mass analysis of those for and against the world’s largest jihadist organisation, Italian academics found that in a three-and-a-half month period starting in July, content posted by Arabic-speaking Europeans on Twitter and Facebook was more favourable to Isis than content posted in those countries on the frontline of the conflict.

In Syria, Isis appears to be dramatically losing the battle for hearts and minds with more than 92% of tweets, blogs and forum comments hostile to the militants who have rampaged through the east of the country and western Iraq, seizing large tracts of territory and declaring the establishment of a religious state.

The jihadist militants are known for operating a slick propaganda machine – managing online distribution in order to successfully evade content controls, piggybacking popular online conversations and galvanising thousands of global supporters into spreading their message.


Pope calls for interreligious dialogue to stop terrorism

Pope Francis, currently visiting Turkey, has called for interreligious dialogue "so that there will be an end of all forms of fundamentalism and terrorism."

The Pope said fighting hunger and poverty, rather than military intervention alone, were key to stopping Islamist militants carrying out "grave persecutions" in Syria and Iraq, referring to the Islamic State.

Speaking at the start of a three-day trip to Turkey, Francis said "terrorist violence" showed no sign of abating in Turkey's southern neighbours, where Islamist insurgents had declared a caliphate and persecuted Shi'ite Muslims, Christians and others who do not share their ultra-radical brand of Sunni Islam.

"It is essential that all citizens - Muslim, Jewish, and Christian - both in the provision and practice of the law, enjoy the same rights and respect the same duties," the Pope stated.

Francis faces a delicate mission in Turkey, a majority Muslim but constitutionally secular state, in strengthening ties with religious leaders while condemning violence against Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.

Why can't they convene a 2nd grand jury ?

I believe the governor could apply a special prosecutor... If he wanted to.

McCullough obviously wanted these results so he put on his own mini trial.

French Muslims Urge Brothers to Kill Westerners for Allah.

In a new ISIS propaganda video, three French jihadis have urged the 'brethren' to kill the enemies of Allah.The ISIS video featuring the French nationals calls on the Muslims in the Western countries to 'poison' the food and run over the Westerners with their cars.

French ISIS fighters in a new video has urged Westerns to poison the food and water of the local civilians as act of jihad.

"Kill them and spit in [sic] their faces and run over them with your cars. Do whatever you are able to do in order to humiliate them, for they deserve only this."


ISIS Executes Prominent Syrian Female Politician, Brands her 'Traitor' for Opposing Militant Group

Reports out of Syria claim that a prominent 'outspoken' female politician was executed by the ISIS after the Sharia court found her guilty of 'espionage.'

Saada Al Ahmad was one of the leaders of "Al-Harakat Al-Sha'abiyya Al Qawimiyyeh Al-Massaanda", a political group that was actively working in Raqqa to unify the Syrian citizens and to bring the violence in the country to an end, reported Al-Masdar Al-'Arabi.

It is reported that Al Ahmad was increasingly motivating people to come together to form a democratic government. She also had spoken out against the 'Islamist' movement in the country, which was causing much blood-shed.

She was reportedly arrested by ISIS several months ago, but the details of her being 'alive or dead' was mostly undisclosed until recently, when the Islamic State militants started posting pictures of her body claiming that she had been executed for 'espionage.'


Hamas leader Mushir al-Masri described the slaughter as a 'heroic act'

In a statement, Hamas praised the synagogue attack as a 'heroic act', saying it was a 'response to continued Israeli crimes, the killing, desecrating al-Aqsa (mosque),' a reference to a recent incident at the holy site. It also called for a continuation of 'vendettas'.

Hamas leader Mushir al-Masri said that the slaughter of the worshippers was a 'natural reaction' to the death of 32-year-old Palestinian bus driver Yusuf Hasan al-Ramuni, who was found hanged in his vehicle on Sunday.

Police said there was no evidence of foul play, blaming his death on suicide, with their findings backed up by a post-mortem.

Both the Israeli and Palestinian pathologists who performed an autopsy at the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute, agreed that it was a suicide.

But colleagues and family said there were signs of violence on his body, claiming he was murdered.


France: At least 1 Frenchman in Islamic video

A 22-year-old French convert to radical Islam appears in a propaganda video showing a beheaded American aid worker and the deaths of Syrian soldiers, a Paris prosecutor said Monday.

Prosecutor Francois Molins identified the man as Maxime Hauchard, one of at least three young Europeans believed among the cold-eyed fighters on the video as the extremist Islamic State group tries to portray itself as an international movement.

Molins said Hauchard has been on the radar of French authorities since he left for Syria in 2013 and another Frenchman could also be among the fighters in the video but it was too early to tell.

President Barack Obama confirmed the slaying of American aid worker Peter Kassig after a U.S. review of the video, which also showed the mass beheadings of more than a dozen Syrian soldiers.

The overwhelming majority of Islamic State fighters are from the Mideast, but the extremist group is trying to cement its claim on an Islamic empire straddling Iraq and Syria. Europe appears to be a fertile ground to find Islamic State supporters, with officials saying thousands of young Europeans have headed off to jihad.


ISIS: Young Human Rights Activists Beheaded by Sharia Court.

Two human rights activists aged 19 and 21 were beheaded in Derna, in eastern Libya, where jihadists have sworn allegiance to ISIS and imposed Sharia, or Islamic law, local media said Tuesday.

The two activists were reportedly supporters of renegade general Khalifa Gaftar who fights extremist groups alongside the army. The two victims are Mohammed Battu and Sirak Qath, who were abducted on November 6. Their bodies were found Tuesday by residents in Derna.

The city is controlled by the Islamic Youth Council, which has set up an Islamic tribunal and already carried out executions.(ANSAmed).
