Extremist Propagandists and Ideologues Maintain Presence Online

(New York, NY) – YouTube’s November 2017 decision to remove the videos of notorious al-Qaeda propagandist and recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki was a long overdue step in the right direction, but many more radicalizing propagandists and ideologues have been allowed to remain online. The Counter Extremism Project’s (CEP) latest resource, Guide to Online Propagandists, profiles online radical thought leaders who are active on social media platforms like YouTube and encourage violence and hate.

Profiles include: Clerics Ahmad Musa Jibril and Abu Haleema, who reportedly radicalized Khuram Shazed Butt, one of the London Bridge attackers; Qatar-based Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who is banned from entering the United States, United Kingdom, and France because of his declared support for suicide bombings and incitement of Islamist violence; Nathan Damigo, founder of the white supremacist group Identity Evropa; and Abdullah Faisal, who played a part in radicalizing shoe bomber Richard Reid, and is linked to 9/11 attacker Zacarias Moussaoui and would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad.
