The Islamic State’s ‘Nasher’ Blog On Tumblr

March 3, 2016

Recently, Islamic State (ISIS) supporters have begun promoting a new ISIS blog, nasheris.tumblr.com. The blog uses the name Nasher, or “publisher,” a term that has become associated with publishing ISIS content across several platforms. On the secure messaging app Telegram, for example, Nasher channels have offered ISIS releases in many languages; the now-defunct Nasher.me domain, which operated in 2015, also published ISIS content. The Nasher app, released in August 2015, offered ISIS content directly to users’ smartphones. Content is uploaded daily and around the clock. In just a few days, for example, from March 1-3, over 70 items were posted, all of them ISIS content.
