If you have ever wanted to be an online troll, this Friday may present you with a worthy target: ISIS. Seriously, Anonymous is asking online users to help them shut down ISIS social media accounts.

Anonymous Wants You to Troll ISIS on December 11 (Link)


Hacker collective Anonymous has declared December 11 an ISIS trolling day, saying it’ll be “a day they will never forget,” and it wants you to join in. The announcement was made via a Ghostbin posting, and is a continuation of the ongoing Anonymous operation against ISIS, which was heightened earlier this month following the terror attacks in Paris.

Here, Anonymous is asking for everyone’s help, but not for anything technical. Instead, it wants to troll ISIS. Hard. The trolling will take place in five different places, according to the post. Social media is the primary battleground, with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube specifically mentioned. Additionally, Anonymous is organising demonstrations in real life all over the world.

Behind the schoolyard pranks is a more serious activity. Anonymous says it wants people to seek out ISIS social media accounts, and report them. Removing ISIS accounts is a key tactic for Anonymous in its online efforts against ISIS. For its real world demonstrations, Anonymous has protest gatherings planned at different locations around the world. It also says people should print fliers that show ISIS does not represent the Islamic faith.

Why Anonymous Is Trolling ISIS

Here in Anonymous’ statement about why they are engaging in the December 11th online attack against ISIS:

“You may be wondering why we are “trolling” ISIS and planning all these demonstrations against ISIS. But to understand that you must first see how ISIS works. They thrive off of fear they hope that by their actions they can silence all of us and get us to just lay low and hide in fear. But what many forget and even they do is that there are many more people in the world against them than for them. And that is the goal of this mass uprising, on December 11th we will show them that we are not afraid, we will not just hide in our fear, we are the majority and with our strength in numbers we can make a real difference… And we hope to see you all brothers and sisters on December 11th. As we join together and show who we are,what we are and what we stand for. I will not see you on December 11th for I am not a person, but an idea of love and peace and we will show them that we will prevail after all their horrors for they do not have any control on us. Please show others and support us on the 11th….. It will be a day they never forget.”

  • there is only one Islam and certainly not a western tagged Radical Islam. as there is only one Christianity not the other Radical Christianity. so the Trump has definitely fueled a short term driven but strategically designed, ill fated, one sided political farce. i don’t practice religion, but i stand with basic Truth. Islam is an Anti Terrorist religion. to know the Islam, read & understand Battle of KARBALA. it is the actual line of identification between the True Islam & the Fake Islam.
    Battle of KARBAL is battle against Terrorism. ISI & its anti Islamic monarch Saudi supporters are imposing a hijacked & fake Islam in the world. USA, Israel, CIA, Trump…all know this. but the basic problem is to justify their hollow existence & control the world order by hook & crook.
    mob gets carried away by such ill intended propaganda war.. so stop & understand the Truth. it will take little courage and some quest for knowledge…but that’s the way to support and stand with a better and transparent Human world order. [rj]

    • Thank you Creative. I have been shocked to hear people in my own neighborhood proclaim that the Koran (“in the middle section”) is all about killing infidels. I have not studied the Koran myself. But my understanding is all the great world religions teach peace. I agree on your political analysis. There is no patriotism there. It’s about money and power. The People need to hang together! Have a happy holiday.

      • Even Killing an Ant purposely is described a Sin in Quran. and by the way there is no word such as ‘Muslim’ is mentioned in Quran, its ‘Momin’. it requires a long description but in brief Quran is not restricted to a particular sect or religion its a book of entire humanity, a way of living better life & refining our soul to attain a ‘Super Human’ status. but sadly its so called followers are presenting the worst examples to the world. its a BIG political game bro. i will reveal the truth in further chats. keep rocking! god bless you & ur family!

      • Yeah I’m not ‘anti-Anonymous’ by any means but I’ve seen them harass anti-Assad, anti-ISIS Muslim bloggers on Twitter they claimed were ISIS, so this particular blog (written by a serious hacker who has done work disrupting jihadist forums and such) resonated with me.
