"We Want Them Dead" - ISIS Releases "Hit List" Of 3,600 New Yorkers

In its latest attempt to instill fear far away from the battlefield in Syria, or the recently terrorism-plagued countries of France and Belgium, last week Islamic State supporters published the names and addresses of 3,600 New Yorkers in an apparent "hit list" designed to escalate the group's campaign of sowing fear far from the battlefield in Syria.

According to the CSM the names on the list were released last week by a group calling itself United Cyber Caliphate on the encrypted chat application Telegram, which IS supporters have used to recruit supporters and spread propaganda.  As Reuters adds, the group has urged followers of the militant group to target these 3,600 individuals and to facilitate that the hacker group has posted their personal information with the demand that "we want them #Dead."

The list includes names, home addresses and email addresses. Some of the information appears to be outdated, according to the source, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly. It was not immediately clear how IS supporters obtained the names and addresses on the list.

The list targets government employees with the State Department and Homeland Security, according to ABC, but there are also many average residents on the list who are now being informed by Federal officials that they have ended up on the ISIS hit list. NBC New York has gained access to the data, and mapped the locations of New Yorkers on the list. Many of the targeted were from Brooklyn, some from Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens and other surrounding areas.

Locations of ordinary New Yorkers targeted in ISIS-linked cyberattack

Federal agents and New York City police officers have been contacting the individuals on the list to inform them of the posting.

In a statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, "While our standard practice is to decline comment on specific operational and investigative matters, the FBI routinely notifies individuals and organizations of information collected during the course of an investigation that may be perceived as potentially threatening in nature."

One of the victims, an 88-year-old man named Art -- whose last name is being withheld for privacy concerns -- spoke with NBC on Thursday, telling of how the FBI visited and told him that his name was on the list posted Sunday on the private channel of a pro-ISIS group called the United Cyber Caliphate.

The FBI told him to be cautious when he goes out in public and to call 911 immediately if he felt threatened. Still, Art said he is not overly concerned for his safety.

"It sounds like psychological warfare," he said. "Make 3,000 people in this city very upset." FBI and NYPD officials plan to visit the homes of everyone targeted, but say there is no specific threat of violence against them.

An FBI spokeswoman said in a statement, "While our standard practice is to decline comment on specific operational and investigative matters, the FBI routinely notifies individuals and organizations of information collected during the course of an investigation that may be perceived as potentially threatening in nature. "Potential threats may relate to individuals, institutions, or organizations, and are shared in order to sensitize potential victims to the observed threat, and to assist them in taking proper steps to ensure their safety," said the spokeswoman, Carol Cratty.

NBC News terror analyst Laith Alkhouri recently released a report on increasing efforts by pro-ISIS groups to undertake cyberattacks. Last month, a pro-ISIS group hacked into the New Jersey Transit Police website and posted the personal information of officers there. Earlier this week, the same group released what they said was the personal information of some State Department personnel. According to Alkhouri the information was posted to a channel accessible only to certain ISIS supporters. It was posted only for a short time, then taken down. He said it is likely the pro-ISIS group posts this way because releasing it more publicly would make them easier for law enforcement to track. And the group knows the information will get out to the public anyway, he said.

“What those guys are really trying to do is gain a lot of notoriety by saying we hacked American servers,” he told NBC's I-Team. That may be true but things will change dramatically if one of the named people is actually assaulted or killed.

Alkhouri added that "these guys are trying to advance their capability, they’re trying to advance their skill set, and they’re trying to zoom in on more critical targets," he said. Ken Maxwell, who once headed the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, says law enforcement has to take these kinds of threats seriously, but residents should go about their lives.

That’s something Art says he plans to do. "I’m not going to change my life, I’m not going to let this get me down," he said. "I’m not going to even do what they’re saying be cautious in the street, because it’s nonsense, it's nonsense."

For the sake of some 3,600 New Yorkers, we hope Art is right.

I knew it was fake when I saw that all the staff at Goldman, Citi, and JP Morgan were not on the list.

  To the contrary, if they were on the list it would be fake.

Knock knock ... This is the government, we are here to help you because we are of the opinion that you are in danger. Do you have any guns in the house that you could use to protect yourself?

The list originated at Langley,

It is a Company list.

The Satanists like to announce publicly what they will do in advance.

"And Art said that the FBI did visit him and told him to take reasonable precautions."

 

We're talking New York here.  What did they tell him to do, buy a rape whistle?  Oh, wait, they're probably on the 'No' list too...

But definitely no Assault Scissors.  That would be completely over-the-top.

Hiz Honna has released a notice that in the event of being killed, all targets should dial 911 immediately.

Hmm, now all ISIS/ISIL/Daesh has to do is get all 3,600 persons into a single NY skyscraper for a few hours...

List is way shorter than DRONE hit list.

LIST is way shorter than NSA "we wish to detain you " list.

List is way tons shorter than the globalist elimination of population list.

 

PESKY little ISIS.  Can't float a drone.  Can't sell a lie worldwide.  PR problem I guess.  USA USA is miles ahead in sales.  Selling their authority all over the world.  Drones coming anywhere that we think is our space.  WTF.

 

Go to Madison Ave....hire Goldman as your banker....buy some media time on FOX.  Expand your scary as shite list.  You are suffering from marketing lag. Washington's warmongers got you beat all over. 

Increase your budget for false flag planning (just ask the globalists and they will transfer cash)....make some TV commercials (called "interviews") in USA MSM...like MCcAIN ETC...make that threat real and down and dirty.

 

I fear for the GOP convention.

This is utter nonsense.  3600 people.  Hardly touches the millions that are being boiled like frogs.

Fear and a prelude.

Manipulated by the creators of ISIS and bankers of these misguided and uneducated people.  Take away any opportunity for education and you have the perfect garden for brainwashing motivation.  Got women running around in body bags? HOW  convenient. 72 virgins and a goat...tell me who would even entertain this notion?  Spongebob is way to clued in for that.

Got impoverished populations running around in a colonial zone?  How convenient. France, Britain, USA USA and "be very quiet but dare I say Israel"  all say "WTF are you doing sitting on all my oil?"  Israel is likely one of the premiere war crimes states that exists.  Give it a pass say USA, say all these lifetime "get bribed quick" politicians. SAY the global companies that NOW apparently have a free pass to write the laws and over-rule any sovereign state defending it's own legislation.  But I digress.

Got people pulling the strings on all of this is LONDON and the HAMPTONS and vague and hidden estates in France and Vatican City?  HOW convenient.  Got idiots in every government bowing to do the work of a very small group of puppet-masters.  And being twice as ignorant as ISIS. 

 

All these idiots who are bowing down to this have no idea that they are pawns...as much as I am.  ( at least I know, OR SUSPECT...the magnitude of this rape).

And ISIS, the creation of USA USA USA, and NATO are no different.  Pawns.  (oh and not to give them mention...the arms industry that runs it all)

 

Time for the world to become just a tad better informed.

 

We are slated to be downsized as a species.

 

AND CONTRARY TO ALL POPULAR OPINION.  I AGREE.  Human beings need to limit themselves.  We are over-running this planet. It will destroy us all.  ( I am not Ted Turner nor am I Soros).

 

WE do need to look at how we are destroying all life. Destroying all nature and species.  We truly are a plague that we have the intelligence to deal with. 

Good feathers I WILL get every down arrow from every religious person for suggesting that the human race needs to consider how it is destorying it's home.....

Many people are afraid of Isis, but why? They're thousands of times more likely to die of heart disease but still eat fast food. Does not compute.

Call 911???!!!  As if that would help you survive a 10 second (if lucky and blessed with time) assault.

Seriously, the odds are that a name chosen from 3000 random names in NYC dying are pretty good...

Are they sure this isn't the list of those killed in the 2001 911 attacks?

Miles Ahead's picture

LOL... yes.  The same 3000 folks plus or minus, from 2001 false flag attack.

Countrybunkererd's picture

a last resort in trying to keep them quiet.  THAT gives much more cred. to the list than any other reason.
