#OpISIS Round 4: Anonymous Beats United States In Combating Terrorism

54

In its war against terrorists, Anonymous, the online hacktivist collective, continues to shut down ISIS websites and numerous Twitter and Facebook accounts promoting terrorism, as part of the ongoing operation #OpISIS. To avenge the brutal murder of Charlie Hebdo journalists, the group launched Round 1 of #OpISIS intended to render the jihadist websites inaccessible through the denial of service (DDoS) attack. In the Round 2 of #OpISIS, Anonymous exposed thousands of ISIS accounts to show that it is not that difficult to fight back against ISIS online. In the Round 3 of #OpISIS, Red Cult Anons issued an ultimatum to Twitter and the US government to do their jobs.

The White House responded to Anonymous’ ultimatum with their Summit on Countering Violent Extremism to show that they are interested in shutting ISIS down online. The focus of the summit was on fighting ISIS on social media, and by downing accounts used for recruiting by the pseudo-Islamic terror group. US President Barack Obama announced that “The United States is joining, for example, with the UAE to create a new digital communications hub to work with religious and civil society and community leaders to counter terrorist propaganda”.

Red Cult Anons believes the US government has realized the effectiveness of the hacktivist group’s approach and is trying to look proactive because Anonymous has embarrassed them. In spite of the White House response, #OpISIS will continue as the operations is proving much more effective than the social media giants and the US government in combating the terror group online. The group makes its intention clear in Round 3.5 of #OpISIS:

The video starts with a message to ISIS – “you will be treated like a virus and we are the cure, there is no safe place for you online”. It reaffirms that Anonymous are “young, or old, gay or straight… from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity – United as one, divided by zero. The video also reemphasizes to the citizens of the world that “the terrorists that are calling themselves ISIS are not Muslims”.

In the Round 4 of #OpISIS, Anonymous’ Red Cult team hacked ISIS networking website and released the vast contact information, including IDs, usernames and passwords, of the members of the pro-terror site. It kept its promise – hunt ISIS, take down its sites, accounts, emails, and expose the terror outfit.

  1. Anonymous is good! I’ve heard back and forth about what Anonymous actually stands for. I have been looking and watching and hoping to understand Anonymous.

  2. In a world of cowards, murderers, liars, thiefs and wolves dressed as sheep’s . I am definitely excited that people are standing up and saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

  3. I AM GLAD you guy’s finally got the government to make a move I give anonymous my full support if you ever need a place to crash my door is always open to you guy’s KNOWLEDGE IS FREE WE ARE ANONYMOUS WE ARE LEGION WE DO NOT FORGIVE WE DO NOT FORGET

  4. Lol, I don’t really think it should be stopped, but I do feel it’s necessary to point out the irony that Anon’s method of attack is denying free speech and the collection, as well as dissemination, their personal information . . . terrible things when the government does them.

    • You make a valid observation. Anonymous however stands for freedom of speech, you point out that they are discriminating against ISIS and it’s members.

      It comes down to a basic element is nature – Kill or be killed

      By this I mean, ultimately, ISIS is a threat to free speech (The System). That is, the free speech of their victims. Anonymous (The Cure) knows this, and thus is attacking ISIS (The virus). They believe this to be a necessary evil needed to achieve their state of free speech.

    • Check out Karl Popper and the paradox of tolerance.

      Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. – In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be most unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. We should claim that any movement preaching intolerance places itself outside the law, and we should consider incitement to intolerance and persecution as criminal, in the same way as we should consider incitement to murder, or to kidnapping, or to the revival of the slave trade, as criminal

    • We are not the ones beheading people now are we. I will happily purchase you a plane ticket so you can go be with them. Two words, one finger. You picking up what were putting down. Expect us

  5. god bless and thanks for what you do.I pray that yall help with the corrupt child protective services , kidnapping our children and forcing adoption , and making us their cash cow !

  6. Although I do agree with it, I also think its a bit ironic that anonymous is denying free speech.

    I’m guessing maybe theres a line dividing people who deserve free speech and those that don’t.

    • Isis is against free speech especially when they are beheading journalist… Hello lowly citizen what are u blind or on the wrong side of humanity…

    • yes, there is evidence of the CIA trying to commit acts of terrorism in the US. the the mission was stopped before it could begin. is this their new aproach? i dont know. but it could which is enough for me to stop work at the crusty crab and actually do something about these evil things in life.

  7. Keep up the good work ANON. If people call you evil, they are confused indeed. You are the true revolutionaries/evolutionaries! You are an example to crime fighters everywhere. May truth and justice prevail.

  8. You guys are doing a better job then any government I have alot of respect for your guys work I’m letting everyone know what you guys do

  9. This is simply awesome. You guys have ensured that the crooked, vile, and conniving nations sit up and take notice and some action. Way to go. My full support to you guys for taking IS on. You are right when you say that they are not Muslims. The war has begun IS. Bring it on. See how this action of Anonymous will render you helpless. And it will end with humanity being victorious. Three million cheers!

  10. CIA won’t take a stand against ISIS because they’re cooperating with ISIS to take down the whole moslems world… Thats the real agenda of ISIS

  11. In a time and place such as we are in now, it’s good to know that someone besides the gov’t is fighting to keep control in OUR, the peoples, hands. as an up and coming computer engineer, i need the internet, i need technology and i need it all free.

  12. Thankyou…. can you publish isis supporters details to other non isis supporters in their area… email tweet facebook. empty their accounts cancel healthcare make it public who they are. Post their pictures on digital billboards..

  13. i hope you guys know what you are doing, war takes tactics. never forget anonymous there is no winner in war, unless its banks or industries. also take into account that what you are doing could be in the advantage of a greater evil.

  14. I do appraise those of Anonymous. You guys take a stand where our own government won’t. Instead of sitting watching the news or reading the articles online and wondering what are we going to do, you guys actually your own freedom on the line to take a stand. I applaud your and only hope that your message will in fact inspire more to finally stand. You have inspired me to have the courage to take a stand. No more fear. No more regrets.

    Knowledge is free. We are anonymous. We are legion. United as one, divided by zero.

    • The link you posted is just a Saudi Arabian military officer. I did not see anything regarding terrorism in that twitter account or I would have taken action

  15. Anons just trickshotted ISIS with FaZe lvl quickscopes 😀

    Anyway, good job to y’all who participated (or even supported).

    The one and only,
    Apollo

    P.S. Tell ISIS, “gg no re”.

  16. I like anonymous now. But now, I am hoping that ISIS isn’t smart at computer tech and hacking like us anonymanians here. We are made for freedom of media and physical speech and there were a group of people in Brighton in Brooklyn, NY who were about to join ISIS but the police caught them. ISIS might be anywhere and the people who are planning to join them might be a few doors to the left or to the right. Once we virtually destroy them, they will not stand a chance at keeping up with people which will create a decrease of the army it self. And also, nobody will join ISIS because of the info that has been deleted which makes Isis less popular and it will be crippled. This is all I am saying, we are anonymous and we are fighting for the freedom of speech. ISIS disturbed us for the murders of the hundreds caused by the shootings associated with the Islamic State. One of those shootings was the French shooting in a magazine called Charlie Hebdo. This depressed us because it murdered the people and loved ones and destroyed half of the company’s employees there. I agree with this action to disable the Islamic websites, accounts, and expose the identities of the group.

  17. Activists in the KSA whom if free could make a huge difference in the world need help. The KSA is a creator of chaos. #freeraifbadawi #waleedabulkhair

  18. The way we operate is amazing. Anyone, anywhere can make a difference through the Anons. We are legion. We do not forgive, we do not forget, expect us.

    Something big is coming, and everyone can help.
    It’s true what we say: “The corrupt fear us, the honest support us.”
    The only reason that fat-cat politicians hate us is because they can’t control us.
    We’re the ones who smile through their abuse, the smirk of Fawkes hiding us.

    The system is broken, and we’re the self-appointed technicians, the ones who know that things need to change.
    We’re the ones who’re making the change.
    Long live Anonymous.

    My blessings to all my anon brothers and sisters.

  19. I hope anonymous keeps peace in their hearts. What they do now is beyond good. However, it is a pattern in history that once a group rises in power, they get consumed in it and suddenly become a controlling force. Demanding freedom is great. Forcing and killing is wrong. Everyone holds 2 containers within their being, one holds the sands of good, and the other bad. Whichever we feed, we become. Even in the ‘worst of people’, there is good, and death should not be given to even those ‘bad’ people. I must disclaim that I only know bits of Anonymous so I am not stating anything based on information I have received; more making a warning to information I have received from outer experiences. The key to success of this life, as a collective, is to practice love in compassion in all aspect of life. Anger is good, as it informs us there is something violating us and the balance of life. So anonymous- thank you for what you have done. I just hope you keep love in your hearts along the way, and help preach love to all who joins. It is key to the success of mankind. Without it, this is just another war- and everyone loses in war. We are one.

  20. Before you attack a twitter account or site for having black and white arabic on it CHECK if they are really terrorists or not because this proxy “War on Terror” is bullshit, most muslims know this and are saying that. They are not trying to kill innocent people, be careful who you take down because I checked the translation of all the links in the comments and they are all simply saying the same thing, the media is lying, the war on terror is bullshit. That is not terrorism but freedom of speech. Send some links that are legit and lets act on them but do not attack the same way the US military does, anti west/media is not terrorism because its very reasonably valid. The ones looking for recruitment in preparation of attacks on innocents worldwide are however to be stopped.
