Public Address: Sectarian Bloodlust 2.0

Over at Public Address, Russell Brown has an interesting post about the use of social media by the Jihadists in Iraq.


I presume I’m not the only one who saw the bleak execution video shot on a mobile phone by ISIS jihadis in Iraq on the news last night and had the small, banal thought that they should have done it in in landscape format. It was an intrusion of modernity into medieval bloodlust.


There is plenty more over there, both from Russell and from a couple of US based magazines. But it does show that social media is being used by all sorts of groups.
