ISIS targets Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey

SAN FRANCISCO- ISIS has released a video which targets Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey over suspended accounts.

According to The Guardian, Islamic State has released a 25-minute video featuring the faces of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg being riddled with mock bullet holes.

ISIS has begun to respond with increasing urgency as Facebook and Twitter have attempted to block terrorist content on the network.

Representatives from both companies were among those who met senior White House officials in January to discuss how to deal with terrorism online.

During the latest video, overwritten text proclaims: “If you close one account we will take 10 in return and soon your names will be erased after we delete you [sic] sites, Allah willing, and will know that we say is true”.

In the video the terrorists claim they control more than 10,000 Facebook accounts, 150 Facebook

The video seemed to specifically be targeting Twitter for closing Isis related accounts.

“You announce daily that you suspend many of our accounts,” the text reads.

“And to you we say: Is that all you can do? You are not in our league.”

Officer Wilson Ng from the San Francisco police department said he wasn’t aware of any “credible threats” against Twitter HQ, yet what is more remarkable is how unremarkable these threats have become.

A widely circulated ISIS statement in March 2015 was addressed directly to Dorsey: “Your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you,” it reads. “You started this failed war. We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter, but we always come back.”

The post features an image of Dorsey’s face overlaid with the cross sights of a gun.

“But when our lions [brave men] come and take your breath, you will never come back to life,” the post reads.
