A social network site for jihadists?

By Adam Levine

The advantage and attraction of social networking isn't lost on the jihadist community, apparently. New postings on the Ansar al-Mujahideen Arabic forum have been discussing a proposal by one contributor to create a Facebook-like site for jihadists, according to SITE Intel Group, which monitors jihadists activities online.

The idea has surfaced as various jihadi sites have mysteriously gone dark, leaving some to speculate whether there was a covert takedown by a spy agency.

In a posting, the user identified as Rakan al-Ashja'i notes that the terror adherents depend on different online forums and social networking sites for posting propaganda and discussions.

"What I am hoping is to program an application that would spare them using all of that and also attract hundreds and thousands of new brothers to work in this field," the jihadist posted, according to a translation provided by SITE. "It will register their memberships, then they need only enter and publish what they want in all the sites and forums underneath with the click of a button."

"We will benefit from the ideas in Facebook a lot, Allah the almighty willing," al-Ashja'i said.

The posting says the one-click would save time and allow for instant republishing on multiple jihadist sites.

"Most of their time is spent in searching for new sites and creating memberships and adding them to their list, instead of wasting time in publishing on the same site always," the jihadist said. "Also, it will be fun and it will attract more brothers to work in publishing."

The idea was met with mostly tepid interest, although it got some enthusiasm, according to responses translated by SITE.

"If I could make a social networking website with the same capabilities and everything like Facebook when it first appeared - it is a very good idea," wrote a user identified as Muhannad al-Balqani. "It would be a social networking website independent from spies and agent media."

One jihadist, who goes by Abu Hakim, said there could be a technical issue, because "the publishing sites will deal with this site as spam."

Another jihadist warned of the difficulty of turning the idea into reality because "programming is a wonderful science, but it needs a lot of work and to engage your brain 200%."

Al-Ashja'i does not seem put off by the concerns. "It will never be a big obstacle and we can pass it," he wrote in response to one criticism.

    Islam is the root of the problem. Muslim clerics, devout Muslims and Islamists are responsible for the violence, terrorism, hatred and discrimination around the world. These devil' worshipers transform ordinary people into irrational beasts capable of committing the worse atrocities without experiencing remorse or guilt. These guys are colluded with Muslim monarchs and leaders, thanks to their satanic Islamic religion, monarchs/leaders seized their countries wealth and natural resources (oil) entirely for themselves, they can have hundreds of concubines and all the sexual pleasures and exert absolute power over their people. In retribution to their allegiance , monarchs grant Islamic clerics well paid jobs such as judges, police, administrators, inquisitors, executioners, etc where they can impose and extend their diabolic Islamic system on their citizens and eventually around the world otherwise Satan can take away their privileges.

    When I seen the Heading I thougt it was about Christian Embassy. I was wondering why they need anymore than being locatedin the Pentagon on Naval Vessels at sea, the Embassy in Iraq with complete access and all paid for by the millitary. I prefer Washing DC, as corrupt and degenerate as it is, to the one they prefer. Jerusalem! What I cant figure out is why an over a 450 Billion a year Industry needs part of our millitary budget and millions more from a Federal Faith Based Charity Fund. A program that is a part of Homeland Security and gets free transportation of their bodys, and biales to pass out in Islamic nations and get free meals and a place to sleep.

    Israel is a proven terrorist state, that has carried out aggressive actions against their own allies, not to mention innocent civillians.

    White phosphorous... Bomblets in lebannon..

    And AIPACS enourmous influence in American politics.

        The whole rant is a lie. YOU are a lie, whatever your name is. In its entire existence, Israel has not harmed a single innocent civilian, has never used "white phosphorous" or bomblets in Lebanon, and does not in any way influence American politics.
        But what IS undisputed is every terrorist action committed in the past 50 years was carried out by muzzies.

    I think we should encourage this... Terrorists can create a log on account, including their name, address and phone number... should make it easier for us to track them down... Maybe the US should create the website for them. Makes sense to me. Stupid Jihadis, how dumb do you get... oh wait... dumb enough to believe they're going to heaven after murdering people and committing suicide at the same time.... Huh, funny, last time i checked, both of those acts will send you straight to hell.

      This is what I detest. You are absolutely right about the need to track down jihadists and some toehr things, and then you have to bring heaven and hell into it. They do not exist. If they do, they are irrelevant, as this is a political issue. For me, the issue is I do not want my children, their children and so forth to have to deal with these nuts. They've been tolerated for over a thousand years and it's time to tell them they they must reform or be destroyed.

    I'm tired of getting deployed, fighting an winnable war, and being a part of a society that is so overly PC. I guess it's easy to judge when 98% of the US population is civilian and probably never had to kill another human being during war. It's easy to call us monsters for claiming non combatant casualties and causing massive collateral damage. We were asked by the public to go to war. So let us go to war. We are not a force designed for occupational and policing. We are a machine of destruction. A lethal force designed to deliver fast, powerful, decisive blows to the enemy.

    I say we turn the middle east to glass. I'm tired...

    The SITE work is simply no more than a double standard effort. Does the SITE track down the deception, lies, violent acts committed by government agencies like CIA and the military as welll?? Enough of this hypocrisy and double stanards. You will never get rid of a vice if your are doing it yourself. You will never be succcessful in combating the so-called "Jihadist terrorist networks" if you can not dismantle the similar operations carried out by the US Government and its allies. Lessons have never been learned.

    US & its allies always mistakenly and arrogantly believe they are superior; they are more civilized than Muslims although history proves that it was the Americans and Westerners who started and used the most lethal weapons and wars and inflicted the greatest injuries, death and destruction on humanity.

    The US and West will Never Live in peace as long as they manufacture weapons of mass destruction and produce weapons to sell to the world, particularly the developing countries.

      We need a world jihad against neocons. These end time cults invading USA politics calling to bring about the events to meet the goals to setup the end time to come so that the messiah can returns. These endless wars are just that! THEY ARE ENDLESS! If you read the NEocon warbooks written by christian war fanatics they want USA to invade Syria and Iran and any place that has any Biblical relevance and oil. Then when the middle east is weak enough then the christians will want the neocons to land grab from Syria and Iraq and Lebanon. So we are looking at another 40-50 years of more wars and P.N.A.C. has built their policy around these neocon ideologies which will also mean USA will burn the Constuitution to bring USA more in line with UN thus world goverment will be complete. I tell you now this is a SATANIC ploy. A lie that even the BIBLE WARNS us against the new world order. To decieve the very elect is what SATAN has done and they say they do it for the love of Jesus/GOD.

      Neocons and their warring evangelical christian buddies will surely burn in hell for going against the wishes of the Bible.

    well some guy invented dynamite and now we have the nobel peace price because those of the military mindset misused nobel's invention , because dynamite was invented for the sole purpose of building roads and building in rock and for minning purposes .
    nobel was so disgusted when his invention was wrongfully used against mankind as a weapon to murder that it is reported that if he had known he would loose control of its intended use he would have kept the knowldge of the invention to him self and never released it to the world.

    well now with the invention of the computer and high tech gizmos social media is not so social , infact it is becoming a weapon , everything from our interact card to our cell phones to gps and computers can now be used as a weapon against humanity.
    so knowing what we know now just how great of an idea was it to invent the computer that has lead to this techno world where threats conspire from many different groups against us . everything from skinheads to jihadist to hacking to personal ID theaft to military electronic jamming to guiding missiles to drones to monitoring our every day life both private and public ?
    no matter how promising something seems in the begining is quickly twisted into a dark side of destruction.

    so the nobel peace price gives a new light into our future as to what appears to be a benefit will most likely be used against the very purpose it was intended for.
    from a dark CLOUD TO A CLOUD OF HOPE ! MAY THE CLOUD OF HOPE PREVAIL AGAINST THE UGLY DARK SIDE !

      There are a few flaws to your theory. If not Nobel, then someone else would have invented dynamite. If not us then someone else would have invented computers. The human appetite for power is what turns these tools to weapons. As a matter of fact I think it's good to be able to engage the jihadists directly online. If based on our beliefs they are all brainwashed, then this is a good opportunity for us to try to un-wash their brain.

      @Fred Phred
      Here are some more hobbies/opinions/beliefs that you could write on Muhammed's fb page:
      In qu'ran, he said 'Do you not see how Allah has created the seven heavens one above the other, and made the moon a light in their midst, and made the Sun as a lamp. [Quran-71: 15-16]
      And He completed the seven firmaments (heavens) in two days and assigned to each heaven its command; and We adorned the lower heaven with lamps (Sun), and rendered it guarded… [Quran- 41:12]'
      According to these two verses, the moon lies in the middle of the seven heavens, and the Sun and stars (lamps) lie in the lowest heaven. Therefore muhammed thought that the moon is further away from us than the sun and the stars! This definitely came from god
      When asked where does the sun go at night, Muhammed said 'it goes into a murky water and sits on its throne, then asks allah for permission to come out in the morning'. LOL. [Then Prophet replied, “After setting, the sun remains prostrated under Allah’s Aro’sh (Allah’s throne) and waits for Allah’s command for rising again in the East.”] Sahih Bukhari Hadith. I never knew that the sun was under allahs throne at night! wow!
      Another thing he said was that women are deficient in intelligence to men. From Quran: "If they party liable is mentally deficient, or weak, or unable Himself to dictate, Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her. " – Quran Chapter 2:282
      This clearly shows that Islam regards women inferior to men. That's why under Sharia (Islamic) law, two women are needed to make up one male witness.
      And yes u pointed out beating wives is cool and one of muhammeds great hobbies! "a man must not be asked why he beat his wife." – Quran sura 4:34
      Also muhammed thinks that women are permanently ill: "They question thee (O Muhammad) concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness, so let women alone at such times and go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loveth those who turn unto Him, and loveth those who have a care for cleanness." – Quran chapter 2:222
      So Islam and Muham_mad considers menstruation an illness? I guess women are cured of their illness after they stop menstruation. Another great fb opinion by muhammed can be added from this!
      Many more muhammed fb opinions/hobbies can be made by just reading the obviously stupid stuff in the quran!
