Anonymous has just struck a massive blow against ISIS recruiting efforts. Hacktivists recently took control of dozens of Twitter and Facebook accounts that had been openly used by ISIS to expand their influence and recruit new members.
The above video explains the attack was coordinated by “Muslims, Christians, Jews” alike. They are “hackers, crackers, Hacktivist, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy next door… students, administrators, workers, clerks, unemployed, rich, poor.” They are also “young, or old, gay or straight… from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity. United as one, divided by zero.”
An important point made by the video is that “the terrorists that are calling themselves [the] Islamic State (ISIS) are not Muslims.” Anonymous further directs a threat to ISIS itself:
We will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails, and expose you… From now on, no safe place for you online… You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure… We own the internet… We are Anonymous; we are Legion; we do not forgive, we do not forget, Expect us.
The following are some of the Twitter handles that had been brought down by Anonymous and RedCult team in #OpISIS are listed below:
Julian Robles is my name, a human being born February 19, 1988 to a Puerto Rican family in San Diego, California. As a child I lived and traveled to many places including Puerto Rico, southern United States, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, and now Morocco where I currently am. My parents have always painted, sparking my interest in landscapes and far away lands, as well as the beauty of the dance between light and dark.
My life has brought me into a spiritual journey, broadening and expanding my perspective. Through my own experience and synchronicity, or as some would say "coincidence" (a matter of perspective), I've chosen to follow my passions for photography, travel and spirituality. In hopes of sharing my experiences with you and the world, as well as developing an avenue for value exchange
