A number of Twit­ter accounts promoting the Islamic State terrorist group are col­lab­o­rat­ing with anti-Israel hack­ers in an effort to increase cyber attacks on behalf of the terror organization, the Anti-Defamation League reported on Thursday.

The Alazm Cen­ter Twit­ter account posted a message on Jan. 13 asking hack­ers to con­tact them. Since then, a group of anti-Israel hack­ers called “Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” has claimed respon­si­bil­ity for sev­eral attacks against Israeli web­sites in the name of the Islamic State.

The hackers said they breached the web­site of a secu­rity con­trac­tor in Israel, a tour orga­nizer and other Israeli busi­nesses, according to ADL. Vis­i­tors are redirected to web­sites fea­tur­ing the name and flag of the Islamic State, along with the sig­na­ture of the hacking group.

“Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” declared their allegiance to the Islamic State in a video posted on YouTube on Nov. 29, 2014, ADL noted. They also have a Face­book page and a Twit­ter account that include mes­sages in sup­port of Islamic State terrorists.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Pledge ‘Relentless Fight’ Against Israel

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards on Thursday threatened a “relentless fight” against Israel, a day after the US urged the international...

The group of hackers declared respon­si­bil­ity for the anti-Israel attacks in a state­ment posted on JustPaste.it, a file-shar­ing website the Islamic State uses to anonymously pub­lish its own state­ments.

The message said, “Thanks to God, below is today’s sum­mary of hack­ing web­sites which is part of a cam­paign against Zion­ist web­sites” and included a list of indi­vid­ual hack­ers affil­i­ated with the group. Sev­eral of the hackers took part in other cyber attacks against Israeli web­sites on behalf of groups in North Africa, according to ADL.

Videos of the hackings were posted on Aljyyosh, an online forum for Arab hack­ers claiming respon­si­bil­ity for steal­ing per­sonal infor­ma­tion from Amer­i­can Jews and Israelis.

The Islamic State Twit­ter account @Mo7_AbuAzzamNM, which describes itself as the “Hacker of the Caliphate State,” posts messages prais­ing the hack­ing of “Zion­ist web­sites.”

“Amer­ica has drones, but we have cyber expe­ri­ence,”  @Mo7_AbuAzzamNM tweeted on Jan. 16. “Oh mule of the Jews [Obama], the com­ing days will show you.”

AnonG­host, another hacker group that tar­gets Jew­ish and Israeli web­sites, is also promoting the Islamic State and its propaganda. The Twit­ter account of Mau­ri­ta­nia Attacker, the pre­sumed leader of AnonG­host, posted sev­eral messages recently related to cyber attacks on behalf of the terrorist group. The account then shared a video that explained to Islamic State terrorists how to avoid being mon­i­tored by the CIA.

    The Mossad should hunt down these people who are aiding and abetting terrorists and send a message. A PERMANENT and FATAL message. Jew hating is actually fashionable in our universities. People actually think it’s cute and trendy to slander Jews in the same way they did in Nazi Germany in the 1930’s. The BDS movement is an example of that. Israel should send a message that aiding and abetting terrorists in any way has consequences.
