Twitter employees are the latest victims to fall foul of ISIS aggression as the social media giant finds itself threatened by an alleged terrorist sleeper cell in North America.
The terrorists of ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, are very successful in promoting their genocidal goals on social media, a platform they have been using for a while to recruit new fighters from around the world to their organization.
Over the past few days, the Al Musra Al Maqdisia ISIS cell, among others, encouraged followers to act as “lone-wolves” in the fight against Twitter for hampering the Jihadists by closing down some hate-filled Twitter accounts.
The New York Daily News reported that the groups has threatened to “bring the war” to Twitter as it attempts to intimidate the multi-billion dollar company through tactics similar to those used by Hitler in Nazi Germany, basically “do what we want or we’ll kill you.”
Using the hashtag “#TheConceptOfLoneWolfAttacks”, one tweet declared:
“The time has arrived to respond to Twitter’s management by directly attacking their employees and physically assassinating them!! Those who will carry this out are the sleepers cells of death.”
While another hateful tweet noted, “Twitter management should know (sic) that if they do not stop their campaign in the virtual world, we will bring the war to them in the real world on the ground.”
ISIS really wants the social media sites on board as it continues with its conquest of imposing Sharia law on the world at large, hence their violent threatening reaction to the fact that some people don’t like the totalitarian nonsense they peddle, let alone their modus operandi when it comes to beheading those who they consider to be enemies.
In fact, it is thanks to sites like Twitter that ISIS were able to recruit American and European Muslims to join it in its ethnic cleansing war in Syria and Iraq.
Even though ISIS isn’t thought to have as substantial a foreign network as Al Qaeda, the threat of “lone wolf” attacks is still a very real one, security experts have warned.
Ironically, the Twitter account where the threats against the company’s employees originated has been suspended or shut down completely.
