Time For The British Police Arrest ISIS Trolls And Other Existential Threats
ISIS is spending some of its time trolling the UK and the USA.
The Mirror leads with news that British-born Nasser Muthana has tweeted: “UK is afraid I come back with skills I’ve gained.”
Skills are allegedly building bombs, poor sentence structures and the more serious crime of making threats online.
Nasser describes himself as a “soldier of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham”. It’s the fantasy state that sounds like an existential questison: ‘Is Is?”
Nasser and his 17-year-old brother Aseel are fighting for jihadis in Syria.
Another Briton being emplyed by ISIS to recruit his countryment to the cause is Reyaad Khan, 2o.
Channel 4 says of the lads:
Reyaad Khan, 20, was said to have once dreamed of becoming Britain’s first Asian prime minister. Nasser Muthana once planned to go to medical school, it has been reported.
They probably once wanted to be spacemen, cowboys or train drivers, but what with Britain’s space programme, a lack of open range and the RMU, they turned instead to fighting Muslims.
Channel 4 adds:
Khan’s mother, who has not been identified, appealed to her only son to come home. She also said the young men had been “brainwashed”.
“He is honest, always caring for his family, he always wanted to be there for them. He was one of the best boys a mother could ever want,” she said.
“I think they are brainwashed into thinking they are going to help people. I don’t know who it is but there is someone behind them, keeping these young, innocent boys, brainwashing them into thinking they are going to help people. There is someone behind them, I don’t know who,” she told Sky News.
Over on Mediaite, the trolls of the Sunni ISIS social media accounts have posted a message for America and President Barack Obama.
In the fifteen minute clip, ISIS member Abu Saffiya toured various sites ISIS had captured, taunting the west’s inefficacy in building a sustainable Iraq. “Look how much America spends to fight jihadists, and it all ends up in our pockets,” he said, showing off American vehicles ISIS had seized… Toward the end of the video, another insurgent drove up in a pickup truck. “A question for Obama,” he posed to the camera. “Did you prepare enough diapers for your soldiers or not?”
If we can prove that the troll is British, maybe we can snithc on them to the twitter police. After all on social media you can get arrested and banged up for far less.
