This world is full of unanswerable questions and uncertainties. But occasionally, some truths are plain as day. I mean, do we even have to consider whether ISIS are the bad guys? Sure, they do what they do because they think it’s the right thing, but that doesn’t make them any less of a destructive force. In one of the group’s latest video rants, ISIS threatens Facebook and Twitter CEOs.
A subdivision of ISIS called the Sons Caliphate Army recently released a video criticizing Mark Zuckerberg’s and Jack Dorsey’s efforts to remove terrorist accounts from their social media websites, eventually threatening them and making a show of it.
Taking pride in their hacking skills, the terrorist groups claimed to have hacked 5,000 Twitter accounts, 10,000 Facebook accounts, and some 15- Facebook groups. They continued by saying that they have these accounts to ISIS supporters, and that if Allah wills, all the remaining social media accounts will be distributed among true believers.
Somehow making the entire video a laughing matter, despite the real threat the terrorist group poses, was the fact that during the video there were badly doctored photos of Zuckerberg and Dorsey with fake bullet holes in their faces, making it seem like a bad joke made by a 12 year that just discovered MS Paint instead of a threatening video from the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world.
It’s very likely that the video came as a result of Twitter’s and Facebook’s attempts to remove any and all content that is pro-terrorism from their websites. Twitter alone has removed over 125,000 accounts since the summer of last year. Both companies are also promoting that anyone detecting activity related to terrorism report the account.
This has obviously gotten some ISIS knickers in a twist, as the Sons Caliphate Army sub-division of the terrorist group made this video threat. Neither Twitter nor Facebook are planning to deem the terrorists with a reply, as according to a Twitter spokesperson, the type of threat in the video has become so common that it’s basically their everyday lives.
In a very short presentation of the video, here’s what the terrorist groups had to say: They bashed the attempts of the Twitter and Facebook CEOs to suspend their accounts, saying that they are certainly doing this at the behest of their crusader government.
They continue trying to make fun of their efforts, saying that they’re completely out of ISIS’s league. They claim that for every account suspended they manage to hack ten in return, and that their names will soon be erased from history, Allah willing.
