ISIS Threat at Home: FBI Warns US Military About Social Media Vulnerabilities

Dec 1, 2014, 6:57 AM ET By BRIAN ROSS and JAMES GORDON MEEK

The FBI on Sunday issued the strongest warning to date about possible attacks by the ISIS terrorist group against the U.S. military inside the homeland, officials tell ABC News.

In a joint intelligence bulletin issued overnight by the FBI with the Department of Homeland Security, officials strongly urged those who serve in uniform to scrub their social media accounts of anything that might bring unwanted attention from "violent extremists" or would help the extremists learn individual service members' identities.

"The FBI and DHS recommend that current and former members of the military review their online social media accounts for any information that might serve to attract the attention of ISIL [ISIS] and its supporters," the federal bulletin sent to law enforcement agencies said, advising that troops "routinely exercise operational security in their interactions online."

Officials said they fear copycat attacks based on what happened in Canada last month, when two uniformed Canadian soldiers were killed in two separate incidents by young men who claimed they were ISIS followers. ..

Minnesota Imam Refuses to "Jump to Conclusions" About ISIS Beheadings

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On November 30, 2014 @ 9:12 pm In The Point

After every Muslim terrorist attack, Obama goes on television warning us not to jump to any conclusions. This Imam has gone him one better by still refusing to jump to any conclusions about the Islamic State after over a decade of mass murder carried out under various names.

Sheikh Jamel Ben Ameur, an Islamic scholar and imam of Masjid Al-Tawba Islamic Cultural Community Center in Eden Prairie, has refused to denounce the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria for one reason, he says: because the news reports about the Islamic State are "confusing" and "complicated."

Sure.

Some news reporters say that ISIS is beheading non-Muslims. Other news reports say it's raping non-Muslim women. And the Sheikh just can't decide.

It's so complicated.

When he spoke to a crowd of about 100 Muslims at Masjid Al-Tawba earlier this fall, Ben Ameur said many people in the Muslim community ask Islamic scholars to condemn the group. And Ben Ameur has a message for those seeking his view on the ISIS issue: "We don't need to accuse people of something we don't know about. We don't have to jump into judgment."

Would the Sheikh be equally non-judgmental if non-Muslims were beheading Muslims?

Despite international media reports of the murder of these men which U.S. and British officials as well as family members have confirmed Ben Ameur has expressed skepticism about the authenticity of the videos and news reports. "We don't know if [ISIS] did it or not," he said. "This is confusing; we don't know the news that's coming to us. [Therefore], we don't want to name names."

Where am I? What year is this? Where did this money that I just wired to ISIS come from? What are all these tapes with Anwar Al-Awlaki's name? It's so complicated and confusing. Who can tell?
