ISIS militants take to social media to encourage Ferguson protesters to embrace Islamic extremism

One ISIS sympathiser calling himself Mujahid Miski, who claims to be from Minneapolis–Saint Paul but suggests he is now based in 'the horn of Africa', has led the campaign to encourage those taking part in the protests to embrace radical Islam.

In one message he tweets: 'So how is democracy treating you guys? #FergusonUnderIS #Ferguson.'

He adds: 'I thought u guys back in #Ferguson were supposed to be Free & that u had equal rights. I'd really like to know what changed? #FergusonUnderIS'.

Miski goes on to retweet dozens of messages by a Twitter user with the handle @AmreekiWitness, who claims to monitor and support the growth of radical Islam in the U.S.

As officers sat with guns pointed atop armored vehicles, the authorities used LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) crowd control systems to send out a painful noise to try and disperse the crowd
Oh, the irony! I was just telling a friend last night that I hadn't posted any stories about the situation in Ferguson, MO, because I didn't have enough information to make any kind of sense of the violence and the media coverage, let alone to be able to either defend the victim of a shooting by a police officer, or the police officer himself. Sadly, the tragedy itself of a dead young man, is the focus on the race of the young man, sparking anger among the black population of this city. Anyway, I told my friend there wasn't much I could discuss that most people weren't already aware of.

That being said, there was a significant part of the story of the Ferguson police shooting and subsequent demonstrations and riots that some people in the media are covering, and that is the use of militarized police units to quell the violence. The tactic of using militarized police is being criticized by pundits and politicians from both the left and the right. I imagine that both Dennis Kucinich and Rand Paul are by now having conniptions. Well, for sure, most of us do not want to live in a police state!

But now for the REAL irony that really hasn't hit the wires yet. Surplus equipment and grants have been fueling the militarization of the police for a few decades, but has been greatly expanded by the Obama administration, purportedly for fighting terrorism (foreign or domestic, you decide!).  However, here we have this story, where ISIS is using the social media to send messages of support to the people of Ferguson, and suggesting that they convert to Islam!

May I suggest that we start taking ISIS very, VERY seriously? They may already have forces in Ferguson, Missouri! If they do, then the same people that are bashing the use of militarized police forces to quell the public unrest because of an alleged social injustice, may be the same people lauding the federal government, and especially President Obama, for helping local police to be able to fend off a terrorist attack. Oh, the irony. Just sayin'...

ISIS militants and their supporters are using social media to encourage protesters in Ferguson to embrace radical Islam and fight against the U.S. government.

Jihadists in Syria and Iraq and their sympathisers in the West have taken to Twitter to send messages of support to hundreds of demonstrators taking part in a ninth night of angry protests in the U.S. city following the shooting by police of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.

The militants' tweets denounce local officers for the way they have attempted to quell the violence, make reference to historic acts of police brutality, and even use the hashtag #FergusonUnderISIS in an attempt to get angry young men in the city to declare allegiance to the Islamist group.

The news comes as footage purportedly taken from the scene of the Ferguson protests appeared to show one demonstrator marching along a street holding a sign reading 'ISIS is here'.

'Chilling': Footage purportedly from a CNN live stream of the protests appeared to show one young demonstrator marching along a street holding a sign reading 'ISIS is here'
