Anonymous vs. ISIS

A few days after the terrorist attack on paris group Anonymous announced “OpParis”, which is the social media campaign against ISIS. The group posted a video on youtube saying “This is only the beginning, ISIS. We will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails and expose you … You will be treated like a virus and we are the cure,” and added ”┬áISIS, it is too late to expect us.”Many people agreed and cheered along with the group on their plan. Lostutter whom is part of the group Anonymous told us the group plans on using a fake Twitter account that automatically reports accounts that have contact with ISIS the terrorist common hashtags. This can prevent extremists from being able to recruit more people. Lostutter also told us that a website that supports ISIS was hacked to replace a propaganda video with an advertisement. This will make it much harder for ISIS to recruit more extremists and spreading their extremism. Without ISIS having methods of communication it will give them nothing left to do.

  1. The fear that ISIS has given to many Americans is incredible. Many social media users do not want to join these groups, out of fear that ISIS will hack their accounts and somehow find them.
