"Islamic State" Threatens Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey


02/25/2016


The terrorist organization "Islamic State" threatened Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey with violence because of accounts closed in relation to terrorist content. ISIS released a new video, one of which shows photographs of Zuckerberg and Dorsey, riddled with bullets.



Authors of a new 25-minute video released by the terrorist organization "Islamic State", who call themselves the "Sons of the Army of the Caliphate", are talking about fight with social networks Twitter and Facebook, and do not skimp on the threat to their creators . The abuse is linked to actions of the biggest social networking on closing those accounts, through which the ISIS recruits new supporters and spread propaganda. In January, heads of Twitter and Facebook Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg took part in a meeting with representatives of the White House, where they discussed methods to combat terrorism on the Internet. A few weeks ago, for example, Twitter reported that in recent months managed to block more than 125 thousand accounts with relevant content. It appears that the measures adopted by the social networks have caused a severe blow to ISIS’ propaganda work – that is why the grouping’s reaction was so harsh.
 
The video released by the terrorists referring to the "Mark and Jack, the founders of Twitter and Facebook, and their government-Crusader" says: "Every day, you tell you closed many of our accounts. And that's what we want to ask you: 'Is this all you can? You don’t even fit to black our boots. You close one of our account, we close 10 of yours in response. And when we destroy your sites, your names will be erased, if it be the will of Allah." Then, the authors talk about how successfully they hack accounts on these networks. They claim that they had already cracked 10,000 accounts and 150 groups on Facebook and 5,000 accounts on Twitter. To reinforce their threats, the video’s authors showed pictures of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg riddled with bullets.

Meanwhile, Twitter representative in an interview with The Guardian told that they do not intend to publish any responses to this video because it is not the first threat. "They do it constantly," - he said, and this is not the first time that Jack Dorsey’s face appears in the video. Responding to the question of isn’t it scary to live so, the company spokesman said: "Welcome to our daily lives". Meanwhile, Facebook’s head Mark Zuckerberg has increased number of private security guards to 16 people last week. His homes in San Francisco and Palo Alto are under the clock security.
