IS 'e-jihad'

Washington Post, She seemed like a normal Web-savvy teen. She was actually waging ‘e-jihad’ with ISIS hackers.

"In addition to tracking Vo’s own time working in the digital trenches of global terrorism, the indictment also offers a surprising snapshot of the Islamic State’s online “e-jihad” operation." Detailed, interesting article. Check out my chapters on this in 'Hashtag Islam' and my other work, including my 2003 'Islam in the Digital Age' book. The US federal indictment in relation to this case has been released, and is available here (PDF from the Department of Justice. Warning: some graphic content).
