London, Dec 4 (ANI): A member of a jihadist forum has urged supporters to wage a ”YouTube Invasion” by uploading propaganda videos to the Google-owned website.

The SITE Intelligence Group, a US-based monitoring service, reported that the call was made last week by a member of al-Faloja, a password-protected jihadist forum, using the name Omar Abdul Hakim.

Noting that the popular video-sharing website is watched by millions and is even used by US president-elect Barack Obama, Hakim wrote that those wishing to wage jihad should use the popular website “to shame the crusaders by publishing clips of videos showing their losses.

“The members of YouTube number in the thousands of millions, and most of them are the filthiest and most dangerous people on earth,” the Telegraph quoted Hakim, as stating.

“Brothers, let us go to work and invade. I ask you, by Allah, as soon as you read this subject, to start recording on YouTube, and to start cutting and uploading and posting clips on the jihadist, Islamic, and general forums,” Hakim added.

The forum member included step-by-step instructions on how to post videos on YouTube and what software to use to cut clips into 10-minute sequences. (ANI)
