The July edition of Terrorism Update, ADL’s newsletter providing news and analysis on international terrorist organizations and their followers in the U.S., is now available.
The feature article explores how the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) uses social media not only to spread its messages and recruit followers, including Westerners, but also to empower its supporters to do so as well.
The newsletter includes a profile on Hamas’s social media use, which has been an ongoing element of its strategy, even as the group continues to target Israelis with rockets.
This edition also includes information on Hezbollah’s use of WhatsApp, a California-based instant messaging service, recent terror-related arrests in Colorado and Texas, a recent Al Shabaab video calling for “lone wolf” attacks, an American suicide bomber in Syria, and more.
