Islamic State has flooded YouTube with hundreds of violent recruitment videos since the terrorist attack in London last week in an apparent attempt to capitalise on the tragedy, The Times can reveal.
Google, the owner of YouTube, has failed to block the films, despite dozens being posted under obvious usernames such as “Islamic Caliphate” or “IS Agent”. Many are produced by the media wing of Isis . . . Several of the videos expressly refer to Wednesday’s attack on parliament.
“Five kaffir dead in London, thousands of believers dead because of US airstrikes,” one Isis-produced YouTube video says….Another made by al-Anbar, the group’s media agency, is posted under the title “Westminster attack documentary (must watch)”
…YouTube poster uploaded an Isis statement claiming Masood as a “soldier of the Islamic State”. The video, which is still live, was commented on by a user called “Supporter of the Caliphate”, who wrote: “Allahu Akbar thankfully.”
