Islamic State hackers post ‘kill list’ of Minnesota cops

By Kellan Howell - The Washington Times - Tuesday, March 15, 2016

A group of hackers loyal to the Islamic State terrorist group have reportedly posted a “kill list” with the names and personal details of 36 policemen in Minnesota.

The list, published by the “Caliphate Cyber Army” on the encrypted mobile app Telegram, includes full names, home addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of all the policemen, according to Vocativ.

The cops reportedly live in cities across Minnesota, but the majority are located in and around the Twin Cities.

Minnesota has a large population of Somali immigrants, with the Cedar Riverside community in Minneapolis housing the largest Somali community in the country. Since 2007, two dozen men from the Cedar Riverside community have left to join extremist groups.

A congressional report from last November said one in four Americans who has attempted to join the Islamic State group is from Minnesota.

This is not the first time a hacking group has released personal details of U.S. law enforcement or military personnel.

In November, a group called “Islamic State Cyber Army” posted names and addresses of people who have worked with American security agencies, although some of those details were previously posted online, Vocativ reported.

Islamic State supporters have also posted the personal details of prominent U.S. soldiers like Rob O’Neill, the U.S. Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden.

Last year, hackers were able to penetrate the Twitter and YouTube accounts of the U.S. Central Command.

Last week, the Caliphate Cyber Army posted a threat on its Telegram channel, warning that its next round of attacks would target financial institutions.

“It will include banks, money transfer services, stocks and so on. Beware of us, economical war has just started,” the message said, according to Vocativ.

Nation of Islam leader defied orders

Monday, August 29, 2005

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES – A Nation of Islam leader suspected of assaulting a police officer disobeyed orders during a vigil for a shooting victim, according to a transcript of the incident.

When an officer asked Minister Tony Muhammad to "back up" during Thursday's vigil, Minister Tony Muhammad twice said "make me."

A spokesman for the Nation of Islam had no comment on the transcript.

The Los Angeles Police Department released the recording and transcript Saturday amid accusations that police beat up Muhammad, the Nation of Islam's Western regional director.

The audio recording that picked up the words had been a conversation between an officer and a police dispatcher.

Muhammad appeared at a news conference a day after the vigil with the left side of his face badly swollen.

Police officials said it was Muhammad who was "very belligerent and uncooperative."

Muhammad was arrested on suspicion of committing battery against a police officer and later released on $20,000 bail.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and police officials have promised an investigation into the incident.


Jihad declared against LAPD

Nation of Islam flyer calls for gangs to unite against cops

The Nation of Islam in Los Angeles is calling on the Crips and Bloods street gangs to stop fighting each other – and to unite in a jihad against the LAPD.

That's the essence of a flyer obtained by KFI News and circulated in South Los Angeles, calling on members of two violent street gangs to start a "holy war" against the police department.

The telephone number listed for the Nation of Islam's Los Angeles mosque near 87th and Vermont has been disconnected, but a check of a reverse directory reveals the phone number on the flyer is connected to the mosque at the same address, according to KFI.

The Nation of Islam's L.A. leader, Minister Tony Muhammad, has claimed he was the victim of an unprovoked attack by LAPD officers at the scene of a vigil for a murdered gang member.

The LAPD last week released an audio tape of some garbled radio transmissions in which they say Muhammad can be heard challenging officers.

The photograph on the flyer appears to have been taken at a news conference held just after Muhammad was released from jail. Muhammad and the Nation of Islam have not returned calls for comment.

It's unclear who created the flyer so the LAPD has declined to comment, other than saying officers have been aware of them for several days.

"This is deeply disturbing," Los Angeles Police Protective League President Bob Baker told KFI. "Quite frankly, this is a case in which I hope our mayor, our police commission and our community leaders can step in to remind everyone of our shared priorities."
