- An Islamic jihadist website, Islamic Socialist NetWork (ISN), based out of the U.K. was found on Tuesday where Muslims in the U.K., Australia, and Canada posted cash bounties on some operators of counter-jihad bloggers and Facebook users for speaking out about Islam.
On their website, photos of Facebook page administrators on “Wanted” posters wereposted along with cash rewards in various amounts of up to a million dollars for personal information such names and addresses of where the operators reside.
The web site was first revealed by Schuyler Montague of Sharia Unveiled, an educational organization that teaches the truth about radical Islam, Sharia law, and history, while they were researching a story on the recent removal of Counter-jihad pages by Facebook.
Montague said, “While researching our story yesterday on the recent removal of Counter-jihad pages by Facebook, we uncovered some very disturbing information. In an attempt to locate the source of the Islamic onslaught against the freedom of expression, we ventured down the rabbit hole of Islamic hate… and what we discovered when we got there, tucked away in a dark corner, was a website operated by a terrorist organization called the Islamic Socialist Network.”
“It appears that the Islamic Socialist Network has created a “Hit List” of Counterjihad webpages to attack. And, if this wasn’t bad enough, we discovered this hit list also extends to the administrators of these web pages, as well.”
On the Islamic Socialist NetWork, one of the Jihadist posted, “Islamic socialist network has just started to name some of the most paranoid and filthy website who use [sic] “divide and rule strategy” in order to stop the message of Islam which is for all people, for those who love it like Muslim comrades and for those who are interested in this religion. This is a message for all people as well as all Muslim brother [sic] and sister (comrades).”
Then they placed a quote that said, “The goal of Islamic community [sic] is defeating their enemy. The unity of Islamic community [sic] is the first step to reach this goal.” The comment was in reference to Qur'an (3:151) "We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve"
One of the web site operators who has a $500,000 bounty threat launched against him is Jeremy Silbert, creator of the Ban Islam Facebook page, which was removed recently by Facebook due to complaints by ISN. Since that time, Silbert has since posted a video explaining his side of the story and his thoughts on having a death threat against him.
“The implications and intent of this terrorist organization and their website should be very clear. To offer such high amounts of money reflects their seriousness, their willingness to do harm and obvious financial backing with deep pockets,” Montague said.
“How many other sites are out there doing the same thing or worse? We are taking this very seriously.”
Last night, the owners of Sharia Unveiled, who were able to capture many of the threatening photos and posts, were successful in removing the threat pages on the Islamic Socialist NetWork web site and those pages were suspended by their web-host for “Violation of Terms of Service.”
While jihadist’s are targeting educational websites and Facebook pages concerning the dangers of radical Islam, yesterday, it was reported that since 2012, an Islamic jihadist propaganda Facebook page titled, “Behead those who disrespect our Prophet P.B.U.H” had been up and running without much notice until Jihad Watch uncovered it.
The P.B.U.H page was subsequently reported to Facebook administrators but has not been removed, although complaints have been filed.
