Can Anonymous Take Down ISIS? Hackers Declare Total War On Terrorist Org After Paris Attack (VIDEO)



The loosely knit confederation of hackers known as Anonymous has declared total war on Islamic State militants following last Fridays attacks in Paris.

The group tweeted on Sunday that they were at war with ISIS, and also tweaked the militants, saying that they, Anonymous, are also better hackers.

In the tweet, Anonymous refers to ISIS as Daesh. It has been official French policy since September 2014 to use that name for the group. Daesh is an acronym for the full name of ISIS, but it also has derogatory connotations, because it sounds similar to the Arabian words that mean sowers of discord, and one who crushes under foot.


Along with the tweet, Anonymous also released a video, in French, with their war declaration. In the video, which looks like most Anonymous productions, a figure wearing a black robe and a Guy Fawkes mask tells ISIS:

War is declared. Get prepared. The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger. Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down. You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go. We will launch the biggest operation ever against you.

The masked figure says that the terrorists should expect massive cyber attacks. The hacker collective has already targeted ISIS, hacking into the terrorist organizations websites, and revealing the Twitter accounts of ISIS members. The magazine Foreign Policy estimates that Anonymous has already flagged over 100,000 ISIS Twitter accounts and some 6,000 propaganda videos.

Newsweek says that the Anonymous battle against ISIS began following the attacks on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, and after the terrorists hacked the Twitter accounts of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) and Newsweek early this year.

Here is the Anonymous video announcing their total war against Daesh/ISIS. The first is the original French language version. The second video, which is somewhat different, is in English.
