ISIS Threatens Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey


Gilad Shiloach of VOCATIV reports: ISIS threatened Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey on Wednesday with promises that its hackers are fighting back against efforts to wipe social media platforms of accounts promoting terrorism, Vocativ discovered.

A 25-minute propaganda video showing pictures of Zuckerberg and Dorsey covered with bullet holes was uncovered by Vocativ deep web analysts on the social-media site Telegram, which ISIS frequents. The video is titled “Flames Of The Supporters,” and ends with a direct threat to the two CEOs.

“You announce daily that you suspend many of our accounts, and to you we say: Is that all you can do? You are not in our league,” text on the video clip reads. “If you close one account we will take 10 in return and soon your names will be erased after we delete your sites, Allah willing, and will know that we say is true.”

The video and its claims are part of the terror group’s war of words in a wider propaganda campaign that has aimed to show defiance against efforts targeting its online operations. Read more: VOCATIV
