Al Qaeda members are now communicating on their first Twitter account. Increasingly terrorist groups are using Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to issue their propaganda statements.
Al Qaeda world leader, Ayman Al Zawahiri is using these social media sites to urge Islamists to “bleed America economically” and keep the U.S. in a constant “state of tension and anticipation.”
These reports have been recently confirmed by Al Qaeda linked Al Shabab terrorists who provided live updates on Twitter to advance their psychological warfare operation against the United States, Israel, and Western nations generally and non-Muslims specifically. Shoppers were asked if they were of the Muslim faith and if not, suffered the consequences. According to a Kenyan police doctor and forensics expert, hostages were systematically sought out to be raped, tortured, beheaded, dismembered, castrated, and hung from hooks at a high-end shopping mall where Westerners often frequent in Nairobi, Kenya.
At least 71 souls are still listed as missing according to reports by Kenya’s Red Cross.
Strategic Solutions recommends that Americans begin to pay attention.
With Islamist regimes such as Iran, Syria, Libya, Iraq and transnational actors such as Palestinian terrorist groups, Hizballah, and the Muslim Brotherhood, consistently encouraged by the policies of appeasement by the Obama administration, the United States may face these same kinds of attacks as do the Israelis from Arab Muslims and particularly Arab Muslim Palestinians, on a regular basis.
