ISIS may have had its ass handed to them on the battlefield (thanks, President Trump), but the jihadists presence on social media is alive and well.
Case in point would be the inaugural launch of the everything terrorist e-zine Shabab al-Khilafah, or in the language of we Western infidels, The Youth of the Caliphate.
With the first edition hitting the internet Oct. 10, 2018, The Youth of the Caliphate is calling all young wannabe suicide bombers to target the US Capitol building by way of “vehicle attacks”.
As reported by Bridget Johnson of PJMedia.com;
Declaring that ISIS is a “globalist” organization, a new magazine geared toward young recruits is calling on jihadists to wage vehicle attacks outside of the U.S. Capitol.
Shabab al-Khilafah, or The Youth of the Caliphate, debuted its first issue on Oct. 10 as a colorful collection of articles, posters and teasers to online videos encouraging home-turf attacks on behalf of the Islamic State. Supporters were encouraged to submit content for future issues.
That debut issue, which was distributed via online file-sharing sites, called for lone-jihadist attacks in Australia. On Nov. 9, Hassan Khalif Shire Ali rammed his car filled with propane canisters into a sidewalk in Melbourne’s central business district, got out and stabbed three people, killing one before being shot by police.
