Groups and individuals who fight in Syria are using Facebook and YouTube to recruit fighters for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS, a group linked to Al Qaeda.

A Facebook page, Islamic Pride, which has more than 2,400 followers, is posting pictures and propaganda on behalf of Albanians reportedly struggling to ISIS in Syria.

A photo posted on the site, showing a dozen gunmen holding black masks and titled “Albanian Mujahideen of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, with their battalion leader, Blowing Muhaxheri”.

In a video message recorded in Syria and posted on YouTube, Muhaxheri urges Muslims to unite in the struggle to establish an Islamic state based on sharia law.

“Brothers, I was advised to not stay a minute longer in your home, but be prepared and start the journey towards jihad,” he says.

“We thank God that allows us to join with those of lions from all over the world to defend the honor of our sisters here Muslim,” he adds.

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS, was established in the early years of the war in Iraq. They pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in 2004, was known as Al Qaeda in Iraq.

The group, made up of a number of rebel groupings, aims to establish a Sunni caliphate in Iraq, but has since then expanded goals, including Syria.

Islamic Pride Facebook page also has other jihadists video, translated into English, ratings for the Albanians who have died fighting in Syria and videos where attacked democracy as incompatible with Islam.

In a video, which appears to be registered in a Western country, bearded men call for Muslims to boycott the elections, arguing that true Muslims do not vote.

In other posts the photo, the Islamic Pride attacking moderate Islamist leaders in Albania and Kosovo, denouncing interfaith dialogue and condemned U.S. President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton.

The website estimates for the terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and former leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarkaëi.

“God must have more men like these. O Allah, I seek a death like Osama, “reads the post.

A photo of bin Laden, the Twin Towers in the background after the September 11 terrorist attacks, has this inscription from the terrorist leader: “Even if I die, I will arise as hundreds every day.”
