Moroccan Islamic Union-Mail Now Hacking For ISIS

The Moroc­can Islamic Union-Mail hacker group, which tar­geted Jew­ish web­sites in the United States in sup­port of Hamas dur­ing Oper­a­tion Pro­tec­tive Edge, has claimed credit for hack­ing into the Mass­a­chu­setts Mar­itime Academy’s web­site on Monday.moroccan-union -islamic-electronic-mail-google

Vis­i­tors to the acad­emy web­site were redi­rected to a site that fea­tured an image of an appar­ent ceme­tery for Amer­i­can sol­diers with a mes­sage that reads: “Iraq is the grave­yard of Amer­ica. Wel­come to the death that awaits you at the hand of the Muja­hedeen in Iraq.” The site also includes an audio clip of an Islamic Jihadist song that glo­ri­fied Islamic conquests.

In August, the Moroc­can Islamic Union-Mail’s Face­book page included state­ments threat­en­ing the U.S .with cyber-attacks in response to the Amer­i­can mil­i­tary oper­a­tions against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The state­ment read:

After focus­ing on Israeli tar­gets dur­ing the aggres­sion on Gaza, the Moroc­can Islamic Union-mail declares tar­get­ing impor­tant web­sites in Amer­ica in sup­port of the Iraqi peo­ple and in response to the Amer­i­can airstrikes.

The Face­book page, which has since been removed, fea­tured var­i­ous com­ments and images express­ing sol­i­dar­ity with ISIS and con­demn­ing mil­i­tary inter­ven­tion in Iraq.

The group uses var­i­ous online plat­forms to claim respon­si­bil­ity for its hacks and to pro­mote its views, includ­ing an Arabic-language blog, a YouTube chan­nel and var­i­ous Face­book pages that claim to be affiliated.

ADL first exposed the group’s hack­ing efforts in July after sev­eral Jew­ish insti­tu­tional web­sites were hacked by the group.

The group has also claimed respon­si­bil­ity for hack­ing the web­site of the Nepalese embassy in the U.S. Its claim of respon­si­bil­ity read: “The Moroc­can Islamic Union-mail hacks the embassy of Nepal in Amer­ica and pulls sev­eral data. We will attack the inter­ests of Amer­ica world­wide, with God’s will­ing, to respond to the Amer­i­can air strikes against the Iraqi people.”

Claims That ISIS Has Jewish Roots Grow In Muslim World

isis-jews-adl

Car­toon pub­lished on Al-Iraq Agency News website

Sev­eral promi­nent pub­lic fig­ures in parts of the Mus­lim World, includ­ing reli­gious fig­ures, elected offi­cials and schol­ars, are pro­mot­ing a con­spir­acy sug­gest­ing the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)was cre­ated by the Jews and Zion­ists to tear Islam apart.

ISIS has engaged in a mur­der­ous ter­ror­ist cam­paign and has con­quered sig­nif­i­cant ter­ri­tory stretch­ing between Iraq and Syria over the past sev­eral months. In June it declared its advances to be the lat­est Caliphate and renamed itself the Islamic State.

The fol­low­ing are some exam­ples that demon­strate the grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity of the absurd accu­sa­tion that Jews and Israel are respon­si­ble for the cre­ation and rise of ISIS.

  • August 7: The World Asso­ci­a­tion for Al-Azhar Grad­u­ates, an umbrella group based in Egypt for schol­ars con­nected to Al-Azhar Uni­ver­sity, Egypt’s top reli­gious author­ity, pub­lished a state­ment on its web­site describ­ing how ISIS and other extrem­ist groups are “[a] Jew­ish prod­uct under var­i­ous names that change every now and then.” The state­ment cites the head of the association’s chap­ter in Pak­istan, Sheik Sahib Zadeh Aziz, as say­ing, “The ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion ISIS is a Zion­ist plot which aims to mur­der Mus­lims, shed their blood, and rape [their] women and girls.”
  • August 6: Dur­ing an inter­view with Dijlah, an Iraqi-based satel­lite tele­vi­sion sta­tion, pop­u­lar scholar Ahmed al-Kubbaisi said, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi [ISIS leader]…..is no more than a Jew­ish agent… and even Muham­mad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, the founder of Wah­habism is a hun­dred per­cent Jew­ish prod­uct.” He added, “I am respon­si­ble for this state­ment before the lord. [I swear] by God, this is an orga­nized Jew­ish move­ment to tear apart the Ummah [Islamic Nation] and it did tear it apart.” In response to his attack on the founder of Wah­habism, the offi­cial ver­sion of Islam imple­mented in Saudi Ara­bia and a num­ber of other Arab-Gulf states, the Mufti of Saudi Ara­bia and other promi­nent schol­ars in the region attacked al-Kubbaisi for affil­i­at­ing ibn Abd al-Wahhab with the Jews — an ulti­mate insult in the Arab world. Con­se­quently, a Saudi lawyer sub­mit­ted charges to the Dubai police, which sub­mit­ted the com­plaint to the attor­ney gen­eral in Dubai.
  • August 4: Iran’s Sec­re­tary of the Expe­di­ency Dis­cern­ment Coun­cil, Mohsen Rezae, said dur­ing a TV inter­view with the Tehran-based Alalam TV that the “Zion­ist Entity” is behind ISIS. He said that because there is a small num­ber of “Zion­ists” world­wide, they usu­ally try to get rid of oth­ers by mak­ing them fight each other. “There is infor­ma­tion that al-Baghdadi him­self [ISIS leader] received train­ing and instruc­tions at the Israeli Entity,” Rezae said.
  • July 29: A promi­nent Shia’a cleric in Iraq, where ISIS has con­quered sig­nif­i­cant ter­ri­tory over the past few months and killed many Shia’a Mus­lims, Aya­tol­lah Sayed Mor­tada Al-Qazwini, report­edly described ISIS dur­ing an Eid ser­mon in Ker­bala as “a Jew­ish Israeli orga­ni­za­tion, estab­lished to tear apart the land of Muslims.”

Sev­eral Arab news­pa­pers and TV sta­tions have also cir­cu­lated a story claim­ing that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a Jew­ish Mossad agent by the name of Simon Elliot. This claim orig­i­nally appeared in the anti-Semitic and con­spir­a­to­r­ial Amer­i­can pub­li­ca­tion Vet­er­ans Today. In addi­tion, an ad cam­paign against ISIS appear­ing on Afaq, an Iraqi satel­lite tele­vi­sion sta­tion, showed a snake with the mark of ISIS com­ing out of the Jew­ish Star of David.

Even the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitism of a group such as ISIS is not enough to pre­vent some in the Mus­lim world from claim­ing Jews are respon­si­ble for the ISIS reign of ter­ror in Iraq and Syria.

Tehran Book Fair To Feature Works By Anti-Semites, Holocaust Deniers

27th Tehran Inter­na­tional Book Fair

An annual book fair in Tehran, hosted by Iran’s Min­istry of Cul­ture and Islamic Guid­ance, is set to include domes­tic and foreign-published anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying books, includ­ing the Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion and works by noto­ri­ous Amer­i­can racist David Duke.

Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani is sched­uled to pre­side over the open­ing of the fair, the 27th annual Tehran Inter­na­tional Book Fair, at the Imam Khome­ini Grand Prayer Grounds on April 29. The fair will then be open to the gen­eral pub­lic from April 30 to May 10. Sev­eral high-ranking gov­ern­ment offi­cials will accom­pany Rouhani at the open­ing fes­tiv­i­ties, includ­ing Min­is­ter of Cul­ture and Islamic Guid­ance Ali Janati, the direc­tor of the fair Abbas Salehi, and Has­san Hashemi, the gov­er­nor of Tehran.

The book fair will fea­ture lit­er­ary works authored by Iran­ian, Arab and West­ern writ­ers. The fair’s selec­tion of Farsi-language titles include sev­eral books deal­ing with Zion­ism, alleged Jew­ish con­trol over Hol­ly­wood and the U.S. gov­ern­ment, and Holo­caust denial.

Among the books that will be offered, accord­ing to the fair’s web­site, is a Farsi trans­la­tion of the Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion, the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic forgery, and Iranian-authored books on Holo­caust denial, such as Half Hid­den: Legend-Building of the Holo­caust.

The list of anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying books authored by West­ern­ers is dis­turb­ing. Among the books that will be fea­tured is Amer­i­can Holo­caust denier and anti-Semite Michael Hoffman’s The Israeli Holo­caust Against the Pales­tini­ans, and Jew­ish Suprema­cists (titled in Farsi: Holo­caust! A Report on the Depth of Jew­ish and Zion­ist Influ­ence in all Organs of the United States of Amer­ica) by David Duke. A trans­lated col­lec­tion of essays on the alleged exces­sive power of the Amer­i­can pro-Israel lobby by Amer­i­can aca­d­e­mic John Mearsheimer is also listed on the fair’s website.

Many of the anti-Semitic titles orig­i­nat­ing from the West will appear in trans­lated edi­tions for Iran’s Farsi-speaking audience.

In 2013, sim­i­lar titles, par­tic­u­larly Ara­bic trans­la­tions of the Pro­to­cols, appeared at inter­na­tional book fairs held in neigh­bor­ing Qatar and the United Arab Emi­rates.
