CAIRO — Militant online forums are abuzz with calls to Muslims in Britain to launch Internet campaigns in support of the British rioters and to urge them to topple the government.
Dozens of contributors on Wednesday suggested Muslims in Britain should flood social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, with slogans and writings inciting the British youth to continue rioting.
One contributor says the rioters should adopt slogans similar to those used by Arab protesters during the uprisings in the Middle East this year.
“The people want the killer of Mark Duggan punished” is suggested — a reference to the British man whose death sparked the riots.
Another contributor says an Internet media attack is very important and that “chaos is useful to militants in London.”
