The GIMF Telethon: AQ’s New Fund Drive
The Global Islamic Media Front
A Message to Those Who Spend in Allah’s Cause
“Wage Jihad against the idolators with your wealth, your lives, and your words.” (Ahmed, Abu Dawud) The influence Jihadi media has had on the enemy and their agents in this vicious attack on Islam and Muslims is now clear to all, due to the efforts made in exposing the lies and plans of the enemies. Due to this, they now lay in wait of the Jihadi media with various plots and plans, gathering all their weapons in order to combat it. They have gathered huge amounts of money, as well as media and technical experts along with the latest technology to combat a foe small in number with limited resources, who rely only upon themselves after Allah for funding. However, all their efforts to have been rendered fruitless, despite the total cooperation give to them by the intelligence agencies all over the world, Arab and non-Arab. Allah foiled their plans in totality. And why not, when the basis of their work was Allah’s saying:
ادْعُ إِلِى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُم بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن ضَلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ
“Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.” (An-Nahl: 125) One of the first priorities of the Jihadi media was to expose the lies of the enemy, as well as to encourage the Muslim Ummah to rise and fulfill the forgotten obligation required by the most vicious Christian Crusade against Islam. Another priority was to ******** Jihadi operations, as we saw that many those which took place in the past, such as in Bosnia, Chechnya, the Afghan Jihad against the Soviets, the Christian slaughter of the Muslims in Indonesia and the events of East Turkistan, were buried and never to be seen, as Jihadi Media as we understand today was close to non-existent. Due to this fact, many enemy crimes remained hidden, as were the victories and heroic deeds of the Mujahideen. The Global Islamic Media front was one of the vanguards of the media centers which took to this responsibility, working to defend and support Islam in general and the Mujahideen in the various battlefields in specific after America and its allies declared their war against the Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq. Thus, the enemy started to plot against us in hopes of ending this defense and support which was built upon the wails of prisoners and martyrs, in pursuit, while individuals who do not have even the provisions of one day dedicated almost all their time to join the ranks of the Mujahideen against the most vicious Christian crusade history has witnessed. On this occasion, we would like to request our Muslim brothers all over the world to financially support the advancement of Jihadi media as required by the coming times, which will be no less than previous times. We remind the Muslim masses and the Jihadi supporters in specific that if they were unable to participate in Jihad physically, they still have wealth in their position. If they were not able to send money to the battlefields, that there are still families of the martyrs, prisoners or migrants in Allah’s Path. We remind them of this great obligation which Allah has placed over them, in His saying:
انْفِرُوا خِفَافاً وَثِقَالاً وَجَاهِدُوا بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

So, it would seem that GIMF has just stopped short of having a “Jerry Lewis” style telethon to raise funds for Jihad here. This is the first full media call that I have seen and it is somewhat distressing from the standpoint that with more funding, they will be able to funnel more money to operations as well as parcel it out to those “lone wolf” cells that they have been trying to create. Of course, some might say that this appeal by GIMF may show the movements iminent implosion because it is now out and out putting its hand out for funds.
To the point though, even with all the frilly Allah citations and round about visuals of shahid, what they are looking for is money to fund more propaganda and actual terror operations. The other thing that is interesting here is the second part below:
In conclusion, we remind our brothers of the following:
1) All correspondence must be private which will be mentioned here. No questions will be allowed to be posted here.
2) Use all security measures when corresponding.
3) Correspondence will be through the following user name:
“ الجبهة الإعلامية – مكتب العلاقات”
…on Al-Shumookh forums, links as follows:https://www.shamikh1.net/vb/private.php?do=newpm&u=11033
Those who are not members can correspond by sending a message from the following link:
The following is the public key on Al-Asrar pogram for dedicated to this matter. You can download it on the following links:
They have set up a conduit on blogspot as well as the private chat area of shamikh to set up funds transfer and to foment correspondences. All of these are also mandated to be encrypted with the “asrar al-moujahideen” application that they have out there. It’s a kindd of cheap PGP knock off and they offer their public key for anyone who wants to talk. I have worked with asrar before and it’s not so secure that it hasn’t been broken already so I should think that others have been perhaps intercepting such communications at the source of the blogspot servers themselves.
Still, this is an interesting development. I wonder just how much of this is going to be Hawala though. This particular post was in the English language section of the site, so I am guessing that their target audience is the jihobyists and wannabe’s here in the US and other areas. Perhaps this is also mirrored in the other language sections too.
All in all, this sounds rather desperate.
