In a day of renewed protests against British military action in Syria, a group calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) reportedly posted 바카라사이트onli더킹카지노ne threats against British Prime Minister David Cameron, and that of the UK’s Jewish community.
The threat was purportedly made by Abu Omar al-Majeed, a Syrian native who claims to be in possession of British passports and to have left Britain for Syria, reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a think tank that studies and distills jihadist propaganda. ISIS, which is linked to al-Qaida in the Levant, has claimed responsibility for recent terror attacks, including the attempted car-bomb attack in Westminster and London Bridge.
MEMRI has published an extensive report on al-Majeed, which is posted online below. “The threat was based on information that he claimed to have, which led to his initial arrest in September in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley by security services,” the report reads, noting that a “minimal” charge was dropped for illegal entry.
Omar al-Majeed, whose online alias is Abu Omar al-Majed, reportedly had links to two other individuals.

But a British counterterrorism official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Guardian in Ju바카라사이트ne that the group’s links to al-Majed are “very limited and very tenuous.”
ISIS, which uses propaganda and online communications, has sought to sow discord within the western community to justify its actions. In February, the group said it had claimed responsibility for the murder of American journalist James Foley by the group’s Amaq news agency, but the claim has never been independently verified.
According to MEMRI, al-Majeed came to prominence at an international summit in September where it invited foreign media to take part in a discussion on how to respond to the Islamic State. According to the MEMRI report, Abu Omar al-Majeed said he traveled to Turkey in October 2013, as part of a group known as a
