Western Jihadists

SITE’s Western Jihadists service provides vital information about the process by which online recruitment takes place in western countries, including location, motivation, demographics, and information about well-known jihadi recruiters. The service includes summaries and analyses of significant discussions and information found on selected Western-oriented jihadi forums and social media platforms. The service regularly covers threats and incitements, as well as conversations and artifacts revealing recruitment appeals, migration methods, and other important information not typically included in official jihadist communications. The full spectrum of jihadi and terrorist groups operating in western countries are covered, including: ISIS, AQ, along with their affiliated western groups and media outlets in Syria, Iraq and other locations. (e.g.: AlRisalah Media, GIMF, Furat Media)

A pro-al-Qaeda (AQ) media group run by Westerners in Syria reposted a message that it was “urgently” looking for help with media work.

The message was forwarded by the Telegram channel of “Fighting Journalists” after the channel originally posted it on July 3. The message stated in part:

We are urgently looking for brothers who can help with:

- Translation
- Editing magazines (layout/text)
- Drawing
- Newspaper
- Photoshop

The post instructed willing media workers to contact the private Telegram account of “Saddiq Muhajir,” appearing to be that of Fighting Journalists’ spokesman.

The Fighting Journalists channel was removed from Telegram less than a day later.
