Deleting terror: US group works to search, destroy online ISIS propaganda

06/29/2016 15:35

An American non-profit policy organization recently announced the arrival of a new technological solution that allows social media companies and Internet sites to "quickly remove" jihadist, ISIS-related online propaganda from their platforms.

The Counter Extremist Project (CEP) said its application, if introduced, "will greatly reduce the ability of extremists and terrorists to weaponize online platforms to radicalize, recruit, and incite to violence."

“If we seize this opportunity and have partners across the social media spectrum willing to fight the extremist threat by deploying this technology, extremists will find Internet and social media platforms far less available for their recruiting, fundraising, propagandizing, and calls to violence,” said CEP Senior Advisor, Dr. Hany Farid.

“It is no longer a matter of not having the technological ability to fight online extremism, it is a matter of the industry and private sector partners having the will to take action.”

Like al-Qaida before it, ISIS greatly relies on online rhetoric for its recruitment and growth campaigns. Jihadists on the internet have also been issuing operational weapons manuals, and terror attack planning tips, for over a decade.

“We believe we now have the tool to reverse this trend," CEP CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace said in a statement. The new application, if adopted, would "significantly impact efforts to prevent radicalization and incitement to violence," he added.
