ISIS jihadists are running a Twitter campaign in an attempt to pressure Obama to cease the bombing campaign on the Iraqi caliphate.
Jihadi media activists are orchestrating a new campaign on social networks in an attempt to ratchet up pressure on U.S. President Barack Obama. The ISIS militants want Obama to respond to their threats to execute American captive journalist Steven Sotloff. The well-planned campaign—which includes pre-formulated tweets, images and instructions for dissemination, all under the hashtag #StevensHeadInObamasHands—is being rolled out in Arabic in an ISIS forum called al-Manbar, where the group tends to post publications and instructions.
As part of the new campaign that went live on Sunday morning, ISIS has called on its supporters on Twitter and Facebook to help create public pressure on the U.S. president and terrorize the American public so that its demands are met. In a forum post, the group offered 13 different phrases to be published and tweeted, all of them using the #StevensHeadInObamasHands hashtag, along with a variety of images relating to the threat.
