ISIS Publishes Detailed Guide on How to Use Services Like Craigslist to Lure Non-Believers to Their Death

Rumiyah gives the reader a green light, ensuring that luring a non-believer, under false pretenses, in an effort to murder them is “divinely approved” by Allah.
Large-scale terrorist attacks are advocated by the magazine, which states that “the scenario for such as attack is that one assault a busy, public and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar (non-Muslims) who are present.”
It goes on to say:
“Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response.”
“Ideal target locations for hostage-taking scenarios include nightclubs, movie theatres, busy shopping malls and large stores, popular restaurants, concert halls, university campuses, public swimming pools, indoor ice-skating rinks, and generally any busy enclosed area, as such an environment allows for one to take control of the situation by rounding up the kuffar present inside and allows one to massacre them while using the building as a natural defence against any responding force attempting to enter and bring the operation to a quick halt.”
“Similarly, characteristics of a good target location include low light conditions, as it grants one the ability to manoeuvre between the people, taking advantage of the confusion and killing as many of the kuffar as physically possible.”
Rumiyah also suggests that if an ISIS soldier is unable to obtain a gun legally, they can always ram-raid hunting or military stores in order to acquire a firearm. Rumiyah indicates that the objective of taking hostages in “lands of disbelief”, such as Australia and the U.S., is to “create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can until Allah decrees his appointed time and the enemies of Allah storm his location or succeed in killing him.”
One of the main purposes of terrorist groups using the Internet is recruitment. On Tuesday, a former Guantanamo Bay inmate was detained in Bordeaux, France as part of a terror crackdown. Sabir Mahfouz Lahmar was one of six suspects arrested for allegedly being part of a French ISIS recruiting network. But, this is not Lahmar’s first go round with the system–he was freed from Gitmo in 2009 after France agreed to accept him. Lahmar was one of six Algerians detained in Bosnia in 2001 on suspicion of plotting to bomb the US embassy in Sarajevo.
So, what’s being done about the continued proliferation of terrorist activity online? Last Friday, world leaders agreed to ramp up the heat on social media giants, in response to the backlash against the spread of online terrorism. According to The Mirror:
“The G7 group issued an unprecedented order telling Internet outfits like Google, Facebook and Twitter to ‘act urgently’ in developing new tools to block violent content.”
The joint statement represented a significant win for Theresa May at her first G7 summit. The PM has led the charge against online terror, first as Home Secretary and then as Prime Minister – and now has other world leaders on her side.
British officials said US President Donald Trump and new French President Emmanuel Macron proved key allies at the summit in Sicily, pressing other leaders to back the plan.”
The G7’s joint statement:
“The internet has proven to be a powerful tool for terrorist purposes. The G7 calls for communication service providers and social media companies to substantially increase their effort to address terrorist content.”
“We encourage the industry to act urgently in developing and sharing new technology and tools to improve the automatic detection of content promoting incitement to violence. And we commit to supporting industry efforts in this vein including the proposed industry-led forum for combating online extremism.”
Demanding that businesses take certain measures in order to help fight terrorism has not always been well-received by businesses. And, there’s always the issue of infringing on civil liberties, so the future of the G7’s plan is uncertain.
The U.S. military, however, has shown some improvement in countering the digital operations of ISIS.
