ISIS vows war against India, slams Modi


New Delhi: The Islamic State or the ISIS has vowed to expand its war against India where, it says, a movement of Hindus is growing that encourages killing beef-eating Muslims.

The threat is made in the ISIS’ manifesto Black Flags from the Islamic State, released online on jihadist platforms on Tuesday, reported The Indian Express.

The ISIS manifesto cites apocalyptic religious prophecies which talks of a global war that will precede the return of the Mahdi, or redeemer, who will rid the world of evil and pave the way for the day of judgment.

“The Islamic State would now expand beyond Iraq and Syria”, Black Flags states. “It would now expand into… India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan [and several other countries]”.

First time in its brief history, the ISIS has analyzed the political situation in India, noting that “a movement of Hindus is growing who kill Muslims who eat beef. The people who fund these organisations want to grow a huge following of Islam-haters who can turn into potential recruits for future wars in their countries”.

It adds that “President Narender Modi [sic.] is a right-wing Hindu nationalist who worships weapons and is preparing his people for a future war against Muslims.”

“They have a political wing for the propaganda to get more recruits and armed militias who can start a terror campaign against their number 1 enemy—the Muslims,” the book states.

The book states that the Paris attacks were based on the 26/11Mumbai attacks, DNA reported. A chapter says:

“In the centre of Paris, some Mujahideen holding AK-47s copied the (2008) Mumbai attacks’ style of shooting through the window of a Cafe bar (where alcohol and food were served), then the people fell on the floor, so they threw a grenade into the building.”

The ISIS book claims that future Islamic State wars “will rage in every country, and this is why there is over one and a half billion Muslims in the world. They will fight the New World Order in every land and every place. The peak of this war against the New World Order will be the battle against al-Dajjal (the Antichrist)”.

“You will be sucked into the New World Order if you stay in your comfort zone and accept submission to the oppressors, or you can emigrate, and fight to defend your religion and your life.”

Talking of its strategy, the ISIS states that it would indulge in “hit-and-run tactics and then go into hiding so [the world] can waste millions or billions of Euros on 100,000+police, investigators, and it can shut down its major cities and lose its money”.

Future terror attacks by ISIS fighters, it states, “will make groups in the West attack Islam and the Muslims in Europe forcing Muslims in the West to pick up weapons and start to fight back to defend themselves too. Then a jihad will begin in Europe like it did in Iraq, and this book gives guidance.”

The book, interestingly, is full of miracle stories “witnessed by ISIS members.”

The ISIS fighter Abu Abd ar Rahman at-Turki, the book states, charged at the enemy, saying “I am seeing the hoor! I am seeing the hoor!” He was shot by a tank shell, “yet he was still reassuring the brothers and would always raise his vision upwards telling them that he is seeing the hoor coming, and that they should keep firm because this is the path of jannah (paradise).”

“We smelled musk coming out of him and saw peace on his face. This smell of musk from the mujahidin would be something that was smelt regularly.”

Facebook, Twitter Urged to Do More to Police Hate on Sites

Tech giants Facebook, Twitter and Google are taking steps to police terrorists and hate groups on their sites, but more work needs to be done, the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Tuesday.

The organization released its annual digital terrorism and hate report card and gave a B-plus to Facebook, a B-minus to Twitter and a C-plus to Google.

Facebook spokeswoman Christine Chen said the company had no comment on the report. Representatives for Google and Twitter did not immediately return emails seeking comment.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Wiesenthal Center’s associate dean, said Facebook in particular built “a recognition that bad folks might try to use their platform” as its business model. “There is plenty of material they haven’t dealt with to our satisfaction, but overall, especially in terms of hate, there’s zero tolerance,” Cooper said at a New York City news conference.

Rick Eaton, a senior researcher at the Wiesenthal Center, said hateful and violent posts on Instagram, which is part of Facebook, are quickly removed, but not before they can be widely shared.

He pointed to Instagram posts threatening terror attacks at the upcoming World Cup in Moscow. Another post promoted suicide attacks with the message, “You only die once. Why not make it martyrdom.”

Cooper said Twitter used to merit an F rating before it started cracking down on Islamic State tweets in 2016. He said the move came after testimony before a congressional committee revealed that “ISIS was delivering 200,000 tweets a day.”

Cooper and Eaton said that as the big tech companies have gotten more aggressive in shutting down accounts that promote terrorism, racism and anti-Semitism, promoters of terrorism and hate have migrated to other sites such as VK.com, a Facebook lookalike that’s based in Russia.

There also are “alt-tech” sites like GoyFundMe, an alternative to GoFundMe, and BitChute, an alternative to Google-owned YouTube, Cooper said.

“If there’s an existing company that will give them a platform without looking too much at the content, they’ll use it,” he said. “But if not, they are attracted to those platforms that have basically no rules.”
