Red on Red: Anonymous Declares War on Jihadis
I can already feel the weeping and gnashing of teeth in the online jihadi community, many of whom use the Anonymous' Guy Fawkes mask as an avatar. Many Islamists see leftwing activists as fellow travelers in their war against Western values. This should be fun:
Some members of Anonymous have vowed to avenge the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris by taking down jihadist websites. A video uploaded to the web by the group's Belgian wing also promises to scrub social networks of accounts promoting violent jihad.This is win-win, all around: more time going after the real fascists, less time going after the imagined. Update: Ooops, thanks to Rich
We are confused.
Half our members just declared war on the other half.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
We do not think very hard about these things.
We would like a sandwich. Mom! When is lunch?

Nothing will happen.
In three months, Anonymous will forget they ever declared this, and they'll go back to attacking American corporations and the like.

Red on Red is indeed sweet especially when one red doesn't have a clue and is helpless as shit in the face of a perfect murderous religion.

That the jihadists would eventually attack them (as they are usually anti-religion in general) should come as no surprise.
The jihadists seem to be of the opinion that the balance has shifted enough in their favor -- I would expect to see more attacks on leftish type targets from here on out -- this is just a personal prognostication, and by no means declares that they won't keep attacking no leftish targets, but I think we will see them challenge the left more from here on out -- they will do this because they think it is safe to do so now.
Of course, this means I will have to defend them, as terrorism is bad...
