ISIS Caught Using Ferguson To Their Advantage

It seems that everyone is using the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson to make a buck or promote their cause. Civil Rights leaders, politicians and especially the liberal media have all jumped onto the Ferguson bandwagon to advance their agenda. Now we can add another group to the list, terrorists. Islāmic jihadists all over the world are using the hate and rage from some Ferguson protesters to their advantage. They have launched a barrage of recruitment messages using Twitter accounts to call protesters to join their cause.
They are playing every angle, from targeting people who may hate the government, to evoking the names of former black leaders like Malcolm X. The Jihadists are saying anything to convince minorities that it’s in their best interest to live under an Islāmic caliphate.

Israfil Yilmaz, a jihadist in Syria, tweeted, “March against tyranny and arm yourselves against the true terrorists of our time: the US government.” He added “ Ferguson Rising” and “Ferguson Decision” as hashtags.

Another tweet said, “My fellow black community know that #Jihad is the only thing that will bring justice, respect and honor in (the) Ferguson decision.” That tweet, posted by a user named Abu Hamza As Somaal, was hash tagged “Islamic State.”

The U.S.-based monitoring firm, SITE Intelligence Group, is responsible for collecting the messages. They say that tweets started appearing in large numbers when the decision was made by a Grand Jury not to indict Darren Wilson.
The group said in a statement,“Users characterized the decision as the result of America’s racism while claiming jihad and revolution to be fitting responses.” They went on to say, “Some jihadist supporters even appeared to openly acknowledge the use of Ferguson as a means of recruitment.”

Jihadists take race-baiting to a whole new level by tweeting, “ In the Islāmic state there are no racist, there is no difference between black and white,”
They ask the people of Ferguson to join ISIS because “here we don’t see the color of skin but only the color of your heart.”  These tweets prove that the world is watching, and they are more than ready to turn our weaknesses into their strengths.
