YouTube & Muslims Against Crusades – another match made in hell

A friend alerted me to a fantastic article that continues to connect the violent jihadi movement to YouTube.  (H/T Andrea.)  The article is very thorough, and details how the terrorists use YouTube to spread their cult of violence and what types of groups are using it.  This nugget, to me, was extremely interesting…

November 2011: MAC Banned In U.K., MAC Website and Twitter Accounts Are Shut Down – But MAC YouTube Channels Continues

On November 9, 2011, the U.K. Home Office banned MAC; membership, holding meetings, or wearing clothing or “articles” to show support for the organization are now criminal offenses punishable by up to 10 years in jail. The official announcement of the ban, on the Home Office website, read: “Terror organisation proscribed: The Home Secretary Theresa May today laid an Order proscribing Muslims Against Crusades effective from midnight tonight. She said: ‘I have today laid an Order which will proscribe Muslims Against Crusades from midnight tonight. This means being a member of or supporting the organisation will be a criminal offence. I am satisfied Muslims Against Crusades is simply another name for an organisation already proscribed under a number of names including Al Ghurabaa, The Saved Sect, Al Muhajiroun and Islam4UK. The organisation was proscribed in 2006 for glorifying terrorism and we are clear it should not be able to continue these activities by simply changing its name. “

Following this official announcement, the MAC’s website and Twitter account were shut down. However, the MAC YouTube page (youtube.com/user/MACrusaders) as well as the YouTube page of its leader Anjem Choudary (youtube.com/user/anjemchoudary) remain active.(emphasis mine)

Now how is it that Twitter can act so quickly to shut down the terrorists, but Google/YouTube just pussyfoots around the subject? Maybe Twitter needs to teach the folks over at Google/YouTube a thing or two.

I’m also curious as to where MAC’s website was hosted.  Surely not Blogger or it would most likely still be around as well.  According to the Jawa Report, it was hosted in Canada – we may all Stable Hand & the Jawa Report readers to thank for the fact that MAC’s site is no longer there rather than the U.K.’s Home Office.  But who’s keeping score?

Infiltrate this!

The morons over at  Shura al Mujahideen fee Junubu Afarika (South Africa) are all a-twitter over their “brother” Jose’s arrest on terrorism charges and the implications it might — and should — have for muslims “speaking the truth” on social networking forums.  Of course the well-documented transgressions committed by poor ol’ Jose are all false.   *insert ginormous eye roll here.*  Of COURSE they are always innocent!  LOL!

As a result they are looking to “infiltrate” and “keep an eye on” anyone who is countering their BS – specifically mentioning Internet Hagannah and Operation YouTube Smackdown.

When they gather information on the supporters of the mujahideen, be it about their youtube channels and friends, blogger profiles and blogs or their facebook accounts, they share it among themselves by posting it on their forum (forum.internet-haganah.com). If any brother or sister is to come across this, make sure that you inform those who are being spied on so they may delete their accounts and start up new ones or at least so they may be more cautious.

Oh nooooooes!  They are gonna watch us!  Run for the hills!  Hey boneheads – if we didn’t want you to see it, you wouldn’t know it was there — just sayin’!

Funny that they are all worried about the implications of the arrest.  Probably because they are guilty of promoting terrorism at their site as well.  And who do you think helps them out?  Yep!  You got it!  Google/YouTube.  Their blog is on Blogger — the free Google blogsite.

And their videos, linked and embedded at their Blogger site are hosted, of course, at YouTube.  Here’s a connect-the-dots series of screen caps so you can see for yourself.  Clicking this link on their sidebar:

Will take you here:

Not surprisingly, it’s a video hosted at none other that YouTube.

And yes – you can see on the statistics for the video that it was unloaded on 11/26/11 and embedded on 11/28/11.

You can also see the search topics by which people using YouTube found the video — which means that presumably YouTube/Google should be able to use their own search filters to find it as well.  And if they were truly serious about removing terrorist videos from YouTube, they would.  The hypocrisy is stunning! Google really needs to change their slogan.

Pimentel, “Jihad Princess”, Google and Joe Lieberman

So, we established yesterday that Jose Pimentel aka Muhammad Yusuf was a YouTube user — specifically mujahidfisabillilah1.  Today his website, http://www.trueislam1.com/, has been removed as has his YouTube account.

Possibly this is in response to Joe Lieberman’s demand for better ways to police Google’s Blogger platform, which is where Pimentel’s blog was hosted.  (Well THERE’S a surprise – NOT!)  Lieberman is asking for is a flagging system so that readers can bring terrorist websites that are hosted at Blogger to their attention.  Right now, if you see an offensive site, you can send an email to Google complaining of terms of service violations, etc.  It exists.  All Mr. Lieberman wants is to make that process a little easier.  Oh.  And he’d like Google to actually state explicitly that terrorist content is against their terms of service.

“Through your updated YouTube standards, Google has affirmatively stated that terrorist content will not be permitted on some of your sites. I strongly believe that Google should expand that standard to include your other platforms.”

Pimentel hooked up with “Jihad Princess” at YouTube.  He promoted her YouTube channel at his Blogger-hosted website.  He also posted video lectures — hosted for free at YouTube — from well known terrorists like Osama bin Laden, Aw-Alaki and others to his Blogger website.  He even credited YouTube user “Jihad Princess” with helping him figure out how to use the Blogger format.

He said most of the photos on his site came from her and that she told him how to use the Google site Blogger — where she describes herself as “an islamic jihad enthusiast.”

Her profile is accompanied by a photo of a woman peeking out from a hijab. On another site, she says she was born in Yemen but lives in the United States.

No doubt the FBI and Homeland Security are already checking her out. — which might be why she’s been deleting stuff left and right.  Sort of like closing the gate after the cows get out.

A lot of people seem to be jumping on Mr. Lieberman  accusing him of only caring about it because it gets him in the spotlight.  Maybe.  But that’s beside the point.  My question is this:  how many arrests, how many almost terrorist events, how many demonstrable terrorist “hook-ups” are going to have to happen before Google is liable as an accomplice?  If they don’t do everything in their power to prevent their services being used by the terrorists, then they ARE complicit.

Was Jose Pimentel a YouTube User?

In what has become “same-old same-old,” another would-be bomber has been arrested in New York.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m glad they got him.  But what’s become monotonous is his story.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

A convert to radical Islam who was inspired by the late Yemeni-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, 27-year-old Jose Pimentel was planning to target police, postal workers and returning armed services personnel with small home-made pipe bombs, according to New York police authorities.

According to authorities, Pimentel, who had lived almost all his life in the US, had become a follower of the US-born al-Awlaki, who rose to become a top figure in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and was killed in a US drone strike in Yemen last month. They said Pimentel had tried to contact al-Awlaki directly, but never got a response.

And where do you think is the easiest place to hear al-Awlaki lectures?   YouTube…  but of course!  The terrorists have their videos hosted for free, set up their little terrorist websites for all their little terrorist buddies, and then link to or embed the videos –hosted for free– on their sites so their little terrorist buddies can get all jazzed up and get violent.  Lovely!
C’mon YouTube – it’s about time to man up.  How many more of these guys are going to get nuts before you remove this stuff?  Seriously?  What does it take for you to agree it’s a threat?
….
UPDATE:  I was more on target than I knew!  I found a link to his blog, which currently is still online.  (here:  http://www.trueislam1.com/). I expect that it will be taken down soon – already it appears that there are some broken links to photos.  (?)  But I took a few screen caps of interest.
This is the header of the site – check out the other websites he recommended.  I’m sure the FBI is checking them out too.  Below, you can see the kinds of things that adorned the left and right sides of his blog — little boxes with videos of his favorite terrorists.  There are numerous one and I took several caps.  You can see a couple samples:
And – what’s that?? He was a YouTube user??  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Are we shocked?  I think not.

Brats at “Don’t Marry A Soldier” not worthy of a soldier’s love

It’s a good thing that the military men I know will do their jobs and protect the idiots anyway.

Most disgusting web post I have seen in a very long time…Don’t Marry A Soldier.

My answers back… a few reasons to marry a military man….

1. Suicide rates of males in the US –> 19.8/100,000.   Suicide rates in the military –>  20.2/100,000  Yep, it’s higher.  Pardon my eyerolls at the SLIGHT difference.

2. Military men are good fathers and they teach their children what it means to be a man of honor.

3. Military men are as “whipped into shape” on the inside as they are on the outside.

4. A military man is more interested in helping the underdogs of this world than in appearing politically correct to a bunch of wussy war protesters.

5. Military men provide well for their families.

6. You will move a lot!  But you will be part of a huge family of people who know what it’s like – a brotherhood and sisterhood like no other!  What an adventure!

7. Military men show by their actions that the least among us are worth saving.

There are so many absolutely shallow, disgusting things said on that site – and if you believe what’s there to be the truth, you are not worthy to marry a military man.  God bless the military men (and women) of our country who do their jobs so whiny babies like the ones at the website linked above can post their snotty posts.

Fred Phelps went down to Mississippi, looking for trouble…and found it!

It’s been a rough few weeks for the Westboro Baptist Church and Phreddy-boy.  First, th3j35t3r took their little websites offline – and at last check they are still “TANGO DOWN.”  In frustration, Phreddy’s inbred “church” claimed that they themselves had taken the sites down to “reboot” them.  That’s one heck of a LONG reboot!  LULZ!

So now the good people of Mississippi have found out how to deal with these addle-pates.  On Saturday USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, who was killed in action in Afghanistan April 7, was buried in Brandon, Mississippi.  And ol’ Phreddy and his inbreds decided it’d be great fun to show up and harass the grieving family.  But the residents of Brandon has other ideas.

From an Ole Miss Sports Message Board via The Hayride:

A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.

Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.

Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.

A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.

BWAAAAHAHAHAAA!!  You gotta LOVE those southern patriots!  I can just hear them in their best Foghorn Leghorn impersonation saying in a deep southern drawl: “You just get on up outta heah and don’t you evah come back!  You heah me, boy?”

Here’s to you, boys!

Its a southern point of honor
You got a get right in on the action
You can hear the outlaws holler

Facebook Jihadis

I received an item today from another member of the YouTube Smackdown crew.  I am usually more centered on YouTube and how that entity facilitates violent jihadis, but I could not just let this pass without sending it on for more attention.  It seems that Facebook is doing their part to contribute to the violence also.  I do not have permission to use the name of the person from whom this was originally received, so I will redact that portion of their email.

It is time to shame facebook for their continued inactivity in preventing terrorists from using their platform!  It is time to publicly call them out.  There are many of us who spend our individual free time “reporting” pages, to no avail.  Facebook must do a better job of keeping terrorists and their supporters from using facebook to promote their agendas and activities!  Please help.

Here is a SMALL list of sites that I regularly “report.”

YouTube: The Bart Simpson of Radicalization

So I got a hit today on a Google Alert I have up that went to the New York Times.  Holding my breath, because I didn’t harbor much hope that the piece would be balanced, I clicked the link and was transported to their site and an article titled “Radical Cleric Still Speaks on YouTube.”  As Andrea would say “NO SH!T SHERLOCK!!”  Ok, I’ll give them a couple points for trying, but seriously – President Obama has given the nod to taking Awlaki out whenever or wherever possible, but we can’t get him off YouTube – why? exactly?  Because we want to protect his free speech rights?  As Rusty said “I can drop a bomb on Osama bin Laden, I just can’t take away his microphone?”  Hello people!  The dude is a certified terrorist and gave up his rights to free speech when he chose to join the minions attempting to implement sharia law.

From the NY Times:

…members of Congress last year appealed to YouTube to remove calls for violence by Mr. Awlaki, the militant American-born cleric now hiding in Yemen, and in an announcement reported around the world last November, YouTube agreed.

End of story?

Not at all. A quick search of YouTube today for “Anwar al-Awlaki” finds hundreds of his videos, most of them scriptural commentary or clerical advice, but dozens that include calls for jihad or attacks on the United States.

I can just hear Andrea jumping up and down and screaming.  She (along with undhimmi, the Jawa Report and others) has been documenting the games played by YouTube with the video numbers ad nauseum. ARGH!

The article goes on to cite quotes from YouTube about just how much video is uploaded and how impossible it is for them to police and the old standby “we rely on our community” blah blah blah to police the site.  But here’s the rub:

The system has prevented YouTube from succumbing to the otherwise inevitable flood of pornography, which is directed to reviewers by software that scans uploaded videos for flesh tones. Computers also give priority to the review of videos with a high “flag-to-view ratio,” suggesting that many viewers are upset about it. Software bumps to a low priority videos that have previously been reviewed, as well as those flagged by users who have a record of, say, objecting to every Justin Bieber video.

So if I, as a user of YouTube’s services, object to every Awlaki video, or every video that features a coalition soldier being blown to smithereens, my flags are given a low priority by their software?  How is that relying on their community?  More like ignoring the segment of the community that actually takes the time to flag videos.

Additionally, this sounds like some pretty sophisticated software.  Something that, I don’t know, intelligent should easily be written to, say, remove every video that has Awlaki associated with it.  Hmmm…. interesting thought.

The variety and volume of Mr. Awlaki’s YouTube material makes it more difficult than might be supposed to decide its fate. Should his sermon on what makes a good marriage come down? His account of the final moments of the Prophet Muhammad? His counsel on the proper diet for a good Muslim?

Such material does not violate any YouTube standard.

What about the executive order that is supposed to prevent US interests from aiding and abetting terrorists in any way whatsoever, including by offering them services for free?  Oh wait – I don’t suppose that’s the standard they’d like to discuss.

It may be that the crowdsourcing that drives YouTube, its reliance on the masses, becomes the ultimate answer to violent messages on the site, more than company censors. Anti-jihad activists with names like the YouTube Smackdown Corps patrol the site constantly, flagging what they consider to be offensive material.

At a site called Jihadi Smackdown of the Day (“Countering the cyber-jihad one video at a time”), the links for past YouTube videos of Mr. Awlaki now usually lead to a standard message: “This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy.”

But if the people who flag more often are given a lower priority, just how will that work?  I think we’ve just been given a clue to what’s going on behind the wizard’s curtain, and, as I suspected, it’s about like confronting a couple of 7 year old Bart Simpsons over a broken lamp.

And while everyone’s pointing at everyone else, the environment remains ripe for the radicalization of yet another once-A-student-in-high-school-turned-Al-Shabab-wannabe.  At what point is enough enough?

Extradition approved: Judge disregards Julian Assange lawyer’s whining

First Julian Assange’s lawyer was whining that some information about his client was leaked to the media and that he didn’t want his client suffering a “trial by media.”  (Quite rich, for a man who made his millions by leaking secret documents to the world, eh?)

And now this…. When fighting extradition, Assange’s lawyer first tried the tack of saying that what his client did in Sweden would not be considered rape in Britain and then claimed that extraditing Assange to Sweden would be violating his Human Rights, because once in Sweden, he may further be extradited to the United States to face charges for leaking diplomatic secrets which could possibly result in the death penalty.

But the judge – a wise man – would hear none of that according to this story at the DailyMail

Announcing his decision, District Judge Howard Riddle said extraditing Assange to Sweden would not breach his human rights.

He also disagreed with defence lawyers’ claims that what Assange is accused of doing would not actually amount to rape in this country.

And he dismissed the argument that the whistleblower would not receive a fair trial, despite a certain amount of negative publicity surrounding the case.

So it will probably go to appeal in the next seven days or so.  Of course Assange’s lawyer, Mark Stephens, is parlaying this into a charge that Europe needs a unified system of justice.  These libs and their lack of respect for the right of a country to make and enforce it’s own laws is astounding!

And ok – on a personal note – who lets a man out of the house dressed like this?

Seriously dude!  Somebody get that man a gift certificate to the Image Coach, stat!!

YouTube Jihadi Mohammed Gul Gets 5 years in Her Majesty’s Prison

He’s young – I’m sure the old boys who’ve been in a while will love having him around.

From Undhimmi.com:

A ‘YouTube terrorist’ who put Islamic extremist videos online is jailed for five years.

Videos included images of Osama bin Laden, bodies of children and a coalition Jeep being blown up
Police say conviction is one of the first for spreading terrorist publications via the internet

A law student dubbed the ‘YouTube terrorist’ who posted Islamic propaganda on the internet after becoming radicalised was jailed for five years today.

Mohammed Gul was ‘pouring petrol on the fire’ and his actions could have spurred others to commit acts of terror, the Old Bailey heard.

Gul, 23, of  Hornchurch, Essex, who has since graduated, was found guilty of five counts of disseminating terrorist publications following a retrial at the Old Bailey.

Word to the wise:  you think that just because you post inflammatory stuff on the internet and don’t actually, you know, kill anyone yourself that you’ll get off Scot free?  The wheels of justice grind VERY slowly it seems – especially to those of us who are taking notice and documenting what you do.  But it looks like the law enforcement agencies are seriously paying attention finally!

So who’s next?  Smackdown Crew has dozens of potential candidates.  And we’re considering every one of them.  If you’ve been engaging in similar activity, maybe you should quit while you’re ahead.
