The advance of an army used to be marked by war drums. Now it’s marked by volleys of tweets.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Sunni militant group that seized Iraq’s second-largest city last week and is now pledging to take Baghdad, has honed this new technique—most recently posting photos on Twitter of an alleged mass killing of Iraqi soldiers. But what’s often overlooked in press coverage is that ISIS doesn’t just have strong, organic support online. It also employs social-media strategies that inflate and control its message. Extremists of all stripes are increasingly using social media to recruitradicalize and raise funds, and ISIS is one of the most adept practitioners of this approach.

Is it really Freedom of Speech to let terrorist organizations to use social-media like Twitter and Facebook for their communications, fundraising, recruiting new fighters, and their propaganda? What about letting them inundate social-media with beheading scenes, and massacres of civilians?

Today I read about a hacker named Guccifer, who wormed into the computer of the 43rd US president’s sister, and published some of his paintings and some other private details. Two of the paintings of former President Bush, which show him bathing, were quite amateur. There is nothing shameful about being an amateur or unskilled painter.

Sunni-Shia hostility has existed for the last 14 centuries – an unsettled problem that nobody can deny. The majority of the disagreements and the sectarian division started immediately after the demise of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (PBUH). For the most part of history, the sects coexisted in harmony and peace despite the occasional disagreement and violence. Never before has the violence been this widespread and brutal.

I am not psychologist, but I have seen enough psychos in my life, from benign ones to the ultimate vicious. For me, the most annoying people were the ones who get used to doing something wrong, while they preach others not to do that. For example some people cruelly tease others, but if you return their favor, they get mad and preach you about how insulting it is to tease others. I have even seen more severe cases who are addicted on doing something wrong, while preaching totally innocent others not to do that wrong.

This Blog post written by Neil Clark was originally published on RT:

Just imagine if the democratically-elected government of Canada had been toppled in a Russian-financed coup, in which far-right extremists and neo-Nazis played a prominent role.

That the new unelected ‘government’ in Ottawa cancelled the law giving the French language official status, appointed a billionaire oligarch to run Quebec and signed an association agreement with a Russian-led trade bloc.

The new Hollywood blockbuster “300:Rise of an Empire”, despite a tremendous backlash over historical inaccuracies and blatant racism portrayed in the first “300” movie, maintains the tradition. Within the first few minutes of the film, we learn that Darius the Great, Emperor of Persia invaded the western Greek lands because he is annoyed at their “freedom”. Themistocles shoots the Persian Darius who is watching the battle from a ship.
