Facebook has shut down a Jihadist group, after it received an alert that the group was using the site to spread its radical message.
The group called the Fursan Ghazawat Alnusra (Arabic for “Knights in Support of the Invasion”), was blocked on December 18. At the time of being banned, it was 120 members strong.
The group’s motto or teaching to its members was to wage “Jihad to aid the religion of Allah and his Prophet.”
The discovery of the existence of the group was made by FoxNews (online), which after working closely with a former radical Muslim, who is presently dedicated to exposing cyber terror activity, gained access to the group and its content.
The group had mentioned on the group that its purpose was “to support Jihad and Mujihadeen”, and that it started the Facebook group “to invade this Web site” and to ask “Allah to grant us Jihad and martyrdom.”.. “Today we invade your sites, tomorrow your lands and homes, o you cross worshipers” it added.
Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said that the group had been disabled, and that the company was investigating the group owners’ friends.
He said that Facebook had also taken steps to increase monitoring for content supporting terrorism, but he said such actions were difficult with a userbase of over 140 million.
