The F.I.T.N.A Project

Fatwa's Islamic Terror Nexus Analyzer

What is F.I.T.N.A?

F.I.T.N.A is software designed to crawl the internet and identify nefarious Muslims, Islamist groups, Mosques, Madrassas, Islamic Centers, and other Jihad infrastructure—all without the aid of human intervention. In short, it's the Counter Jihad's first artificial intelligence.

How does it work?

F.I.T.N.A was built from a combination of web crawler components and an adaptive learning engine that I developed using a variety of machine learning and computer vision techniques.

Here's the basic flow:

  • Sample data is processed by the learning engine to create a baseline profile of what Jihad "looks" like
  • Website and social media content discovered by the web crawler is analyzed and compared to the baseline data
  • Matching content is flagged, further processed, and added to the baseline (in this way F.I.T.N.A always gets "smarter")
As for the initial sample data used to "teach" F.I.T.N.A how-to identify Jihad, it consists of several translations of the Qur'an, various Hadith collections, Muhammad's biography, and a large corpus of content from known Islamist websites.

Ultimately, the goal is for F.I.T.N.A to be as accurate as any Counter Jihadist at identifying Jihad on the internet.

Where did the idea come from?

My original idea was to create a snapshot of Jihad in the Infidel world. I wanted to display the last 20 years of terror attacks alongside known terror training camps, Mosques, Madrassas, and other Islamic locations. To that end, I started writing software to help me locate, compile, and analyze the massive amount of data required to create the master map of Jihad I envisioned. Along the way, I realized I was developing software that could be easily extended to map digital-Jihad as well. F.I.T.N.A was born when I further concluded there's nothing (except some extra time and code) standing in the way of a fully automated system.

Note: I considered making F.I.T.N.A open-source software, but I decided against it. Outside of keeping the source code a secret, there's no way for me to guarantee F.I.T.N.A remains aimed at Islam. I just won't risk supplying Muslims with the technological means to auto-discover the Counter Jihad. Innocent Infidels would be murdered—and I would feel partially responsible by virtue of having published the code that helped find them.

Qur'an (8:39) And fight them until there is no fitna (disbelief and polytheism: worshiping others besides Allah) and the religion, all of it, is for Allah.

Homeless Journal: The Cops Showed Up

Thank yous, cop story, and a quick rundown of my technical skills.

How Speaking Out Against Islam Made Me Homeless

MeSpeak—Freedom in Action

MeSpeak is my vision of a social network for news junkies, pundits, bloggers and activists. I started writing the code for it at the beginning of the year, but I haven't been able to finish. Between being a single dad of two, software developer, and Counter Jihadist, I just don't have any time to work on it.

I've come to the realization that the only way I'm going to ever finish is by finding a way to make it my day job. This GoFundMe campaign is my first attempt at figuring out how to make that happen. Got a few bucks for a good cause? Throw them my way, they will be put to good use. Don't have a few bucks? Well, clicking one of share buttons on this post or my GoFundMe page is both helpful and free :)

More info:

As LinkedIn demonstrated through its success, there is room for additional dimensions to the social networking scene. News enthusiasts, political pundits, bloggers, activists, and "loud mouths" of all stripes are more than ready for a social media environment designed around their needs—all the ease of use of traditional social networks, all the control of full-fledged blogging platforms, and all the freedom of the First Amendment (plus some sweet tools for managing other social media accounts, organizing campaigns, and presenting data via charts, maps, spreadsheets, and the like).

I've personally been the victim of suspensions and deletions by major social media sites for years. My "crime"? Expressing politically incorrect truths, mostly about Islam. Unfortunately, my experience is not an aberration. There are literally millions (on both sides of the political aisle) who have had their voices suppressed in the name of the new age religions "political correctness", "multiculturalism", and "diversity".

As an American, a no-longer-in-uniform U.S. Marine, and fierce defender of free speech, I am profoundly horrified by the role social media is playing in draining the lifeblood (access to information and the free exchange of ideas) out of free societies around the globe. Don't get me wrong, Facebook, Google, et al are certainly within their rights to "censor" anything they want. They own the websites, they make the rules. However, freedom will not last forever if someone doesn't establish a competing social presence around the idea that arguing is good for humanity (the best ideas rise to the top) and censorship is an abomination.

In addition to being a U.S. Marine, a Counter Jihadist, and freedom activist, I am also a software developer and white hat hacker with over a decade of experience slinging code and keeping the bad-guy hackers out. As a consequence, I have to believe I'm one of the most qualified individuals alive to invent the "activist dimension" to social media.

Statistics: Islamic State Activity in the Western World

Map: Islamic State Activity in the Infidel World (here)

Some statistics about the Islamic State:

Keep in mind that these numbers are what we currently know from government sources, news stories, and polling data. In other words, these stats are only the tip of the iceberg. Reality is much worse. Wake up!

Everywhere Islam exists so does the Islamic State.

Facts are stubborn things: The Islamic State is exactly like the very first Muslim nation

The prophet of Islam raped, terrorized, and murdered his way to the first Caliphate in Islamic history. It's all very clear from Islam's "holy" books that the latest Muslim nation is nearly identical to the first.

Forced conversions, extortion, and terror in the new Islamic State

"If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya [infidel protection tax]. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them." -Muhammad

Little kids murdered in Iraq by the Islamic State

"Messenger of Allah, we kill children of polytheists during night raids. He said: They are from them"

Islamic State mercilessly slaughters "apostates"

"Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him." -Muhammad

Genocide inside the Islamic State

"Kill any Jew who falls into your power." -Muhammad

Islamic State turns captured infidels into sex slaves

"We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have given their due compensation and those [captives] your right hand possesses" -Muhammad

Not one Christian left in Mosul

"I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim." -Muhammad

The Islamic State is a bloody nightmare today, just as it was 1400 years ago.
