ADL’s Terrorism Update Examines Terror Groups on Social Media

The July edi­tion of Ter­ror­ism Update, ADL’s newslet­ter pro­vid­ing news and analy­sis on inter­na­tional ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions and their fol­low­ers in the U.S., is now available.islamic-state-media-twitter-380

The fea­ture arti­cle explores how the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) uses social media not only to spread its mes­sages and recruit fol­low­ers, includ­ing West­ern­ers, but also to empower its sup­port­ers to do so as well.

The newslet­ter includes a pro­file on Hamas’s social media use, which has been an ongo­ing ele­ment of its strat­egy, even as the group con­tin­ues to tar­get Israelis with rockets.

This edi­tion also includes infor­ma­tion on Hezbollah’s use of What­sApp, a California-based instant mes­sag­ing ser­vice, recent terror-related arrests in Col­orado and Texas, a recent Al Shabaab video call­ing for “lone wolf” attacks, an Amer­i­can sui­cide bomber in Syria, and more.
