ANONYMOUS joins the war against daesh. They have been attacking and shutting down daesh sites since last August, unfortunately the planning and communications among daesh terrorist was able to continue so the cowardly attacks in Ankara, Beirut and Paris were carried out over the past month. Anonymous' stepped up campaign against daesh is admirable. We have to hope these hackers have vetting procedures in place so the innocent aren't caught up in their actions, and that if they come across sites involved in planning more terrorism the information is passed on to government security services, anonymously, of course. From +The Huffington Post .....
#OpParis has taken down more than 2,000 pro-ISIS accounts so far, the hactivist collective said Sunday.
"Make no mistake: Anonymous is at war with Daesh," the enigmatic hacker group wrote on Twitter over the weekend, using an alternative name for ISIS.
"We will not give up, we do not forgive," said a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. "Expect us."
We are anonymous.
The aftermath of Friday, November 13, 2015.
France is shocked by the events caused by terrorism in the capital.
We first wish to express our sorrow and our solidarity with the victims, the injured, and their families.
To defend our values and our freedom, we're tracking down members of the terrorist group responsible these attacks, we will not give up, we will not forgive, and we'll do all that is necessary to end their actions.
During the attacks of Charlie Hebdo, we had already expressed our determination to neutralize anyone who would attack our freedom.
We'll be doing the same now, because of the recents attacks.
We therefore ask you to gather and to defend these ideals.
Expect a total mobilization on our part.
This violence should not weaken us. It has to give us the strength to come together and fight tirrany and obscurantism together.
We are anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Since then, Anonymous has reportedly identified and taken down tens of thousands of pro-ISIS Twitter accounts. Some donation pages for the terror group, listed on the dark web, have also been shuttered by the collective, an Anonymous member told The Atlantic earlier this year.
