Tutorial On Converting Written Jihadi Statements Into Videos For Posting On YouTube, Social Media Sites

February 14, 2013

On February 11, 2013, Abu Sajed, who is described as a “distinguished” member of the leading jihadi forum Shumoukh Al-Islam, published a tutorial video explaining how to convert written jihadi statements into video segments, so “they can be easily published on YouTube and social media sites.” In the 5:09 long tutorial video, which was originally uploaded to Sendspace.com and later reposted on Archive.org and YouTube, Abu Sajed walks his viewers through the conversion steps, providing onscreen text instructions describing each step. As of this writing, only 87 viewers have thus far viewed the video on YouTube, where it was posted the same day as Abu Sajed’s post.
