#Jihad: More Jihadists Using Twitter to Spread Violent Propaganda

But when we use Twitter to confront the violent teachings of the Qur'an, we're called "racists," "bigots," and "Islamophobes."

FoxNews—Twitter is the new frontier for jihadist propaganda, according to an extensive review of more than 75,000 tweets in a leading counterterrorism journal exclusively reviewed in advance of publication by Fox News.

The article, called "Tweeting for the Caliphate," was authored by independent academic investigators Nico Prucha and Ali Fisher. It will be available on Tuesday in the CTC Sentinel, a journal published by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point. It explored the Syrian opposition group Jabhat al-Nusra and its established links to Al Qaeda as a case study (in Syria, the Assad regime is said to allow social media activity, in part so that government officials can monitor the traffic).

"Twitter has become the main hub for the active dissemination of links guiding users to digital content," the report found, adding that a new generation of jihadists now engages in attacks after extensive exposure to online propaganda. "These jihadists decided to engage in physical violence after being active within the virtual dominions of al-Qa'ida where exposure to the media had an impact on their personal lives and understanding of religious conduct."

Increasingly, investigators found Al Qaeda web forums are buying into social media and promoting their official Twitter accounts on their main web pages. It is not uncommon for videos, linked to jihadist tweets, to get upwards of 5,000 views. (Continue Reading.)

what's amazing is that the Islamists believe they are better than the INFIDELS (S 3:110) yet they use Jewish cellphonees, Infidels tweets, infidels cars, infidels planes, infidels computers, and just about everything invented from the infidels in the last 2 centuries! Now they are learning from their mistakes in the past from using infidel technology? I guess the pigeons and camels were to slow for them? I can see why they are mad & insane, because their "religion"/cult prohibits them from advancing in contributing anything positive to human society!!!
