"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Introducing The 'cyber caliphate'...

In memoriam - thirteen years after.

"Jihad and the rifle alone ... No negotiation, No conferences, No dialogue."

IS is planning to establish a cyber caliphate.
Islamic State militants are planning the creation of a 'cyber caliphate' protected by their own encryption software - from behind which they will launch massive hacking attacks on the U.S. and the West. 
Both Islamic State and Al Qaeda claim to be actively recruiting skilled hackers in a bid to create a team of jihadist computer experts capable of causing devastating cyber disruptions to Western institutions. 
They are now boasting it is only a matter of time before their plan becomes a reality.


We are in it.  The world has been at war all of this time and many of us only now realize it.  Those anti-depressants are good aren't they?  We never even noticed what was happening.

A large local company recently announced their computer system has been hacked.  According to local news, it is the same Russian hackers that took down Target and other systems.  Notice how no one ever mentions the Chinese cottage industry of hacking and online surveillance?  As Edward Snowden revealed, government agencies and small time hackers can do a lot.  And now aimless, anarchist - yet highly skilled young men and women are being recruited by the Islamic State.  Cool, huh?

It is only a matter of time.

It seems to me the collapse of the towers on 9/11 was prophetic.

Song for this post here.


  1. Not at all surprised this new campaign to cripple the West will soon begin if they are not stopped beforehand. But it makes sense if we live in the digital age and have all become so dependent on it.

    Maybe they will be the only ones with massive servers/computer technology that will disrupt the whole of society and silence the masses. News of their terror will cease to exist online and will be spread by word of mouth only unless some of us are unfortunate enough to see them enter into our cities.

    Our Holy Father's words of consolation to all the persecuted and to those of us who need to be encouraged will come yes, but not online but on the silence of the wind...a whisper and only when we are truly humbled and found in prayer and not distracted by the Internet.

    All the Catholic online squabbling "I worship better than you do" prideful one-upmanship will cease if we go to a complete blackout. Though we may suffer...it will bring about true repentance and conversion. A more prayerful Church that will seek the company of each other in real time in a real community like in the days of old and not behind a computer screen. Prayer, fasting, silence, reflection, preparation and in the end...the glorious return of Christ Crucified.

    Let them lord it over...they will not conquer our hearts much less destroy our faith.

    Viva Cristo Rey!

    So though it may sound scary what ISIS is planning, there is a silver lining to it all while reading this post, Terry. I do not if what I am sharing makes any sense but all these thoughts came to mind after reading your post.

    I only hope I will not be found wanting.

    Thanks for letting me post them here.

  2. A friend of mine had his personal info taken when a small business he dealt with had their site hacked - it really brought home the idea that a cyber war is much more than a probability.

  3. A cyber-caliphate is bullshit for "Pretend Caliphate".

    1. Listen to your filthy mouth...


  4. The Mossad will get them.
