ISIS French-Language Magazine Features ‘Computer Security’ Tutorial

August 25, 2016

The 10th issue of ISIS’s French-Language magazine Dar Al-Islam, published August 20, 2016, features a 9-page tutorial on “computer security.” The spread is divided into 3 chapters, and features step-by-step instructions on how to send encrypted messages on Android devices. In particular, the encrypted application Chatsecure is mentioned in addition to CSipSimple.


This issue of the magazine also features a fatwa against French Salafi preacher Rachid Abu Hudeyfa. The fatwa labels Abu Hudeyfa an apostate for calling on Muslims to vote in the French elections, supporting the Moroccan government, and sanctioning man-made law. The magazine says Abu Hudeyfa is “wanted dead” and provides a photo of him and his address, as well as a satellite image of his mosque in Brest, France.
