ISIS STEPS UP ONLINE PROPAGANDA WAR AFTER DEFEAT IN RAQQA WARNING, 'WE ARE IN YOUR HOME'

ISIS STEPS UP ONLINE PROPAGANDA WAR AFTER DEFEAT IN RAQQA WARNING, 'WE ARE IN YOUR HOME'
Jihadist posts picture of himself outside New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art just before New Year's Eve on
terrorist web channels as ominous reminder of threat group still pose

The man with the Isis scarf appears to be playing a kind of jihadist peekaboo.
In the photo, he hides his features behind the terrorist group's infamous logo but shows just enough background scenery so viewers can recognise his location: New York's Central Park, in wintertime.

“We are in your home,” reads the photo's simple caption, posted online a few days after Christmas and circulated widely on a prominent jihadist internet channel.
Precisely when the photo was taken is not known, but the message is chillingly clear. It has been repeated in similar posts in recent weeks, all purporting to show Isis operatives casing landmarks in Western cities and urging followers to carry out attacks wherever they are. “It is time to harvest the heads,” the narrator in one such video states.
Isis fanatic 'plotted Big Ben attack with death squad sent by Allah'

Such is the typical fare served up by Isis's propaganda machine, which remains very much alive three months after the fall of the terrorist organisation's capital in Raqqa, Syria. The self-proclaimed caliphate has been reduced to a handful of villages in the Syrian desert, but the “virtual caliphate” fights on, a diminished but still formidable presence focused on rallying the group's followers in the face of crushing military defeats, according to US officials and independent analysts.
The content has changed significantly since the loss of Raqqa, formerly home to the group's official media division and production facilities. Gone are the glossy Isis magazines and slick videos extolling the virtues of life under militant Islamist rule. In their place is a steady stream of incitements, nearly all of them aimed at offering encouragement and detailed instructions for carrying out terrorist attacks.
