According to the Qur'an, it is the duty of every faithful Muslim to fight until the whole world submits to Shari'a law, using whatever means they can. Below is a dispatch from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), who have translated a message from the Global Islamic Media Front. It instructs Muslims everywhere to conduct online "raids."
Using the Islamic principle of Tiqayya, a Muslim is allowed to deceive infidels if it is in the interest of Islam. The internet jihad is part of a 20-year plan to overthrow the U.S. government. Does that sound impossible? Egypt used to be a democracy. It is now in the hands of Islamic fundamentalists. Lebanon was once a Christian nation. It is now run by Islamic fundamentalists. Turkey was once one of the few secular democracies in the Islamic world. It is now run by Islamic fundamentalists. All these changes have occurred in the last 30 years.
There are millions of Islamic fundamentalists, and they are totally committed to their cause, and will use every means available. Meanwhile, most of us think it's impossible for it to happen to us, and go on about our lives. This is what the jihadists are counting on.
Here is the message MEMRI translated:

Global Islamic Media Front Instructs Islamists to Infiltrate Popular Non-Islamic Forums to Spread Pro-Islamic State Propaganda
Recently, the Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) announced a new comprehensive media campaign titled "The Battar Media Raid to Defend the Islamic State [of Iraq] (ISI),"  whose declared purpose is to repel the intensive campaign against the ISI by Arab and Western media agencies and to stop the increasing military campaign against the ISI by Sunni organizations in Iraq.
In a message titled "The Battar Media Raid: How to Participate? How to Help? What Is My Role?" the GIMF announces the beginning of the campaign and provides a detailed description of the campaign's goals and ways of accomplishing them, including infiltrating non-Islamic forums for the purpose of posting pro-ISI propaganda.
The following are excerpts from the announcement:
The Islamist Forum Must Be Like a Beehive During the Raid
"What we expect from you brothers and sisters is for the [Islamist] forum to be like beehives during the raid... [whereby] one person takes part in distributing [material]... another generates links... one person writes an article... while another writes a poem... People must feel and notice that the forums have changed radically during this blessed raid..."
The following are the details of the plan:
Designate a Special Space on the Forum for Raid Material
"First:...Those who supervise the [Islamist] forums have a significant role in this raid. We expect from you the following: a) to post the raid's slogan on the websites, forums, and blogs, as a way of expressing support for the raid; b) to designate a special space in the forums in which material related to the raid will be posted... so [that this material] will be easily recognized [by forum participants]. We request that this space be open to everyone, with registration not required; and c) to collaborate with GIMF in matters concerning suggestions and experience..."
Ban Anyone Who Slanders the Islamic State [of Iraq] From Disseminating Their Poison in the Forums
"Second, we expect the following from the forums' administrators: a) to take control of your forums and forbid anyone who slanders [the ISI] or [accuses it of causing] civil strife from disseminating his poison in your forums... [and] b) to prevent futile and useless discussions and responses... and to urge people to participate in the raid."
Post Raid Material on [Non-Islamic] Music, Youth, and Sports Forums
"Third, beloved [raid participants], the raid is dependent on you... The raid demands of you many things... such as expertise, especially in the following areas: seeking religious knowledge, montage, translation into any language, uploading material onto various types of websites, web design, graphic design, journal and publication design, and hacking and security. If you have expertise in any of these [fields], contact the GIMF representative on any of the forums. If, however, you do not possess this expertise... there are other matters you can [promote]: for example, posting matters related to the raid in most [jihad] forums... posting [material] in non-jihad forums, posting in non-Islamic forums such as music forums, youth forums, sports forums, and others. Anyone who undertakes to post the material must look into the [appropriate] manner of spreading [the material for each type of forum]... The way in which members of music forums address one another differs from the way members of jihad forum address one another."
Monitor Forum Members' Reactions to Your Posting
"You are not required to engage in blind copying and pasting here... [On the contrary,] you should select [carefully] the material... and the words... and the most important issue is to monitor forum members' reactions after you disseminate your material and to respond to them, turning for help to your comrades in the jihad forums if you find it difficult [to reply] to one of the reactions [from members of the non-Islamic forums]."
"[You should also offer] commentary to the various news agencies' websites... such as the Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiyya websites... Even if they do not publish your commentary... do not give up... Persist... in the attempt to place the name of the raid in every commentary..."
Participate in Live Shows on Satellite TV
"[Another way to assist the raid is by] participating in live shows on satellite TV... Anyone with a desire [to do so]... can contact, and participate in, any program discussing... the jihad in Iraq... He should be sure to mention... that he is a participant in the Battar Media Raid to Defend the Islamic State [of Iraq]... Of course, he should mention this fact immediately after going on the air... and not prior to that... [This way,] millions will hear the name of the raid...."
You Can Slip a CD Into Your Friend's Bag Without Him Noticing
"[People should also engage in] downloading various publications related to the raid and distributing them to others... If you are afraid that you will be exposed, you can [distribute the material] without people noticing... [For example,] you can slip a CD into your friend's bag without him noticing... you can drop it into a person's car while he is driving... you can place it in your neighbor's mailbox..."
