Emerson Begolly; Teen Nazi Whacknut Turned Mujahid Takfiri Asadullah Alshishani

with 7 comments

I got a tip on this guy and decided to do a little digging… Boy, what a whackjob. Lets call this kid a “jihobbyist” that seems in need of some counselling and a big scrip for some Clonozepam. Overall though, this kid seems to be just a hanger on who wants to belong to something that will fulfill his desires for warfare, power, and a sense of “brotherhood” Which I guess he did not get fulfilled from the 4rth Reich that he was emulating when he wore the Nazi uniform.

Oh Look, the young Nazi.. I mean Shahidi has an Iron Cross!

Now, you might be asking yourself “gee what did this kid do?” Well, so far he has just been an advocate posting online at places like Ansar1, hanein, and alboraq under the name Asadullah Alshishani. His “greatest hits” so to speak are “Nasheeds” for the fallen brave mujahids as well as penning and singing a song for Osama himself. Seriously dude, you suck as a lyricist, time to get into another line of work. Of course, you are studying comparative religion at Penn State so perhaps you are a method actor and are just trying to live the part? Either way, there is no future in this line of work my boy, best you shave the beardlet and grow up.

I am not sure how long Emerson wore the mantle of Nazi but he now looks rather different in his late teens/early twenties sporting the new chic “Chechen” Jihadist look:

Thats it.. Pose for the camera with Ansar on the screen! That’s a keeper.

Say kid, I think you are more prone to end up in a baza bachi party with that weak beard rather than at a training camp. You will get all the “special” attention because of your blue eyes… Oh well, someday you will be an adult, likely in the prison population here in the US, and likely not too far from your home;

Anywho… I broke out the Maltego and did some looking into you old boy. Seems that you have been around a while posting your nasheeds, but really not doing much else it would seem. Of course the boys at My Pet Jawa took you to task too haven’t they? I mean the goatse references and pictures on your website were pretty nasty. Then again, there is the profile opened up for you on a homosexual pron site too that is, well kids, just don’t go there unless you want a shock and ESPECIALLY not if you are at work! So, it may make sense that you have kept a kind of low profile online… Well except for the Myspace site, which may or may not have been set up by you.

Alternately, you are living quite in the open there sparky with your shit hanging out on the Penn State site and what is with the whacky bead pictures man? I mean, are you some sort of crazy bead guy now? Is it a sideline? Because really, I think that should be your main line of work and not so much the lyrics and singing thing. You will definitely make more money with the beads AND it will keep you ever so busy in prison later on! You can make all kinds of beaded products for the guys there who will be trading you around for smokes. Maybe they will even be kind and use some lube on you if you make them shiny beaded baubles.

But I digress…

The Maltego maps show some interesting connections and emails. Perhaps there is more to plumb later on, but for now I got quite a bit of data just by looking you up in Google.

I’m tellin you dude, your OPSEC is a FAIL.

Do yourself a favor, cut the shit out, shave, and lose the beanie. Your Nazi/Mujahid days are over.

Muhammad Zaib Khan: Mujahideen-e-Islam Media Center

with 6 comments

The Mujahideen Media Centre is a fairly under the radar site that is run by someone calling themselves Muhammad Zaib Khan. He helpfully has offered up his gmail account on the main page of the site and he claims connections to the Pakistani movement that created Faisal Shahzad. After doing some looking around, I decided to pull out the Maltego and have a little looksee at his personae.

What the maltego tells me is that perhaps this is a young man:

Roll#: 0206605, MUHAMMAD ZAIB KHAN son/daughter of MUHAMMAD SALEEM, date of birth 25.12.1992, and resident of district TOBA TEK SINGH (district of domicile) has obtained 590 marks in Entrance Test (Entry Test; MCAT) out of 1100 and 931 in FSc/Equivalence marks by IBCC out of 1100, with Aggregate of 75.3364%. His/her Provisional Merit Position is 06969. Link

He has also set up a scribd site where he has a book that he has uploaded:

Now, on the cover of the book you have this phone number.. I assume the publishers Phone: 92-041-618003 Inside though, this says it was scanned and uploaded by Mr. Khan and has another email address for him: which links to a Youtube account for Mr. Khan with nasheeds and other propaganda. I have yet to download the document and look at the metadata, but soon hope to and will edit this post once I have.

Also located with another yahoo account a hit comes up at a taxi website:

Could they indeed be the same person? How common is the name Muhammad Zaib Khan in Karachi anyway? In any case, the Pakistan connections are there as this guy claims to be aligned with the Taliban forces/tribes in Pakistan…


A Google search of his name turns up numerous hits for Youtube (his channel) etc as well as posts to other Islamic Jihad sites (links) As well, his site is a Blogspot site which is run by Google as well… One wonders if anyone has paid any attention to Mr. Khan before? I looked into him before but got waylaid with other things and am now just circling back. However, the BEST link that I got from Maltego would be for a Fawad Khalil, who’s resume is located HERE He speaks English, Urdu, and Pashto (all languages used and linked to on the Media Centre site) and gives his cell number, home number, and another email address of Once this was plugged into the Maltego, it came up with a hit to a personals site which says he is 22 and in Upper Dir, North West Frontier Province, Pakistan… How is it a hit? Because he says his father is Muhammad Zaib Khan

Could be…. After all, a computer guy with a website on Islamic Jihad from the Frontier region of Pakistan? How about yes.. I should think that is pretty close to where the Talibs are hanging these days eh?

I guess I will just have to give up what I have and see if anyone is interested in looking at those email addresses, phone numbers, and other data.

Revolutionmuslim: Rollup

leave a comment »

Full size map HERE

Bilal Zaheer Ahmad was charged yesterday for inciting jihadi’s to kill UK government officials. Ahmad, known only as “Bilal” was a contributor on, a now defunct site that was known to incite jihad. The call that Ahmad made ended up with the stabbing of one parliamentarian by Roshonara Choudhry. Well, just before the arrest was made I had run some Maltego analysis of the contributors list that I posted the night before the site was actually taken down by the Brits and US authorities.

Since the takedown and arrest, I have also uncovered some more tidbits about not only Bilal but, also some of his “friends and fellow contributors” Hopefully, soon there will be some more arrests as Bilal’s pals are a wonderful group of jihadi’s and jihobbyists who really aren’t too smart with their personal data.

Tsk tsk tsk

The above user names and their attendant sites are the primary contributors that I have found on With the recent stabbing of a British official by Roshonara Choudhry citing revolutionmuslim as her source of inspiration, I was contacted by an interested party, to look into the site. The site itself is not the usual fare that I am used to with jihadi’s and takfiri’s but it gets its point across pretty well without having to be as sensationalistic in imagery and content as say the Ansar boys. They do however seem to be an outlet for AQAP, serving out the Inspire magazines with fawning commentary to go along with it.

One of the itnteresting features is a capability to post anonymously… One wonders though, just how anonymous that really is given some interesting facts.

1) The site is located physically on a server on the Google domain in Mountain View

2) The titular operator claims to be located in NYC a Yousef Al-Khattab

Given these two bits of information, one has to assume that the FBI already has had contacts with Goog with the exigency arguments on getting the data from the site, who owns it, who trafficks it, etc. This I assume would include anyone who goes there to post anonymously. Unless they are using a proxy, then they are likely being tracked already. I however, do not have that kind of access, and instead began to use Maltego, Google, and my nose.

The above “contributors” pages included links to their own sites, emails, and other data that links them to their potential real identities. If you go through the maltego maps, then you can see where they also post on other forums and get a better picture of their on-line jihdist lives. There’s a TON of data to sift through, so help yourselves and if you find anything tasty, please do drop me a comment here.

It would seem that this site has been a nursery of sorts.. Chesser, Jesse Morton, etc… And the feds have been looking into them.. Maybe this data can help.

More when I have it.

Jihadist Friends of Abdullah As Saif

leave a comment »


In going through the Facebook jihadi social networks I have come across so many “jihadi friends” that it just seems inundating. Zucky never thought that his means of getting laid and being cool would ever be used in this way did he? I only wish that Zucky and company would be a bit more open and less litigious so that I could use Maltego to interface directly with facebook and run some maps of these accounts. But alas.. Zucky is.. well.. Zucky. So no joy there at present as transforms go for Maltego.

Meanwhile, it seems that AQAP has spun up with these toner bombs today. In looking at all the reporting today, I see that AQAP is up to its usual tricks with the PETN and their penchant for air attacks. Of course they did their homework on the parcel/baggage theme of the attack. Even with the upgrades and the actual checking of baggage now, we still missed the boat here. If it had not been for the intel tip off by the Saudi’s we would not have known.

One wonders if there are more packages in trucks….

Ok, back to jihadibook…I have begun to just copy the users and their links directly from the user profiles to manually perform searches… If you wish to play at home, here you go…

Facebook Jihad

with 4 comments



So this morning I was watching “The Social Network” and thought “I wonder if the jihadi’s have facebook pages that I can cull” Well, sure enough, with a few key Google searches I was able to easily locate sites devoted to groups as well as individuals on the path to violent jihad. One has to wonder if Zucky and his minions know about these as well as perhaps are letting them exist online at the bidding of the government doesn’t one? The alternative is that they have no idea that they are there.. and… well, the way they mine our data for their profit just doesn’t allow for them not knowing these are there in my mind.

Facebook Jihadist Sites:

All of the sites have anywhere from 200 to 4K users or posters who “like” them (heh) and I am going to develop a methodology to spider them all and then Maltego the shit out of all of them. Hey all you takfiri shahid wanna-be’s out there..

See you soon.

Nowhere To Run, Nowhere To Hide

with 2 comments


Full Map Here


I have begun to use Maltego in a much more macroversal but refined way. It takes time, but the triumvirate of Google, Maltego, and a little mental elbow grease gets pretty good results. In this case, I found several digital alias’s that the end user used online and set them apart on the map. Once the searches are performed, the behavioral pattern emerges.

  • Who they are
  • Where they post,
  • what emails they use and post with
  • What they are saying and to whom

Between Goog and Maltego, you get a great idea of the patterns they show and then with some reading, you can determine who these people are. Their native languages, and where they really are as opposed to where they “claim” to be.

Good stuff.

Perhaps a paper may come of all this…

“The Jihadi Social Network”

leave a comment »

The Jihadi Network


Lately I have been feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of crazies out there on the intertubes to chase. It seems like the jihadi sites are just popping up like mushrooms on piles of internet dung too. So, in a state of apathy, I decided to map out the “Top Ten” jihadi sites out there to see their interconnectivity and if indeed they were related to each other. What I found was kind of interesting. Many of the sites have links to each other, but also that many seem to have all of their eggs in one server.

One of the other features here from these searches also is an expanding of the jihadi site list that I have already. Just from this one map above, I have come across a whole slew of Indonesian jihadi sites on WordPress. These sites also have more links on them to others.. and on.. and on.. You know, its the interwebs. I will continue following them all down the rabbit hole and see if anything interesting turns up. However, I decided to let you all play at home. If you like, you can open the Maltego maps here

Meanwhile… I ran across an interesting trend.. The irahbi’s are multiplying! Irhabi’s as in irhabi001, irahbi008, and irhabi009. The interesting part seems to be a connection to the Indonesian’s again…

The irhabi iterations are all over the place and talkative on the usual sites. I guess they are just picking up where Younis left off back when he was caught and put into detention.

Full Map

It would seem that they have been busy, but I am getting the impression that the new gen of irahbi’s has just been getting started. I will drill down a bit more and see what I can locate to pass on. As I have pointed out in the past though, I do worry that the Indo Asiatic sector of Jihad is just beginning to really spin up. As such, we should be looking toward that area for more possible events as well as support to the AQAP and AQ boys.

The other troubling aspect here is just how connected these guys are to the kavkaz (Eastern European) sector too. The mujhaids in the Baltics are still very active and also have a long, distinguished history of jihad. Of course these are the same guys who brought you the attacks on the Russian opera house and the school in Beslan so, we know what they are capable of.

More soon…

Binyamine | Crusades | Jihadist Encyclopedias and Metadata

leave a comment »

Full Size MAP



The Darkweb Project has allowed me some more access into the jihadist world and I have been leveraging that to look a bit more closely at all of the takfiri’s out there one by one… Well at least the interesting names anyway. In this case, the map above is for a user (#75 on Ansar1’s English forum) and what I would call a “Propagandist” for the cause of Jihad. Here are the basic stats on him:

1) He’s either American or Canadian (my bet is American from the syntax)

2) He is plugged into As-Sahab, Al-Malahim, & Jundullah Studio

3) He has been not only posting videos but also editing/creating them

4) He likes pr0n and the blood finally left his head enough to make a mistake

You see, Binyamine had been pretty assiduous about keeping his personal information to a minimum on the boards and places he has been posting. I had a devil of a time actually locating an email address, AIM session, MSN session, etc on him from anywhere. That is until a little creative Googling using previous behavioral data gave me two hits. Hits which turned out to be his email addresses. I shan’t put them in here though. His downfall though was a desire to post comments (non jihadist) on a free porn site!


However, by using Maltego, I was able to not only see where he has been posting, but also make connections between names/entities/sites to give a good pattern of behavior for further investigation into ol’ Binny. Oh, and yeah, for a guy who hates the Zionists and rails against them, odd name choice there buddy.. Binyamine.. aka Benjamin in Hebrew… Go figure…

“Zionists sound the alarm: a war for Islamic Caliphate is going on in the Northern Caucasus”,“75”,”Binyamine”,“Peace mercy and blessing of Allah be upon all of us. Quote: Zionists sound the alarm: a war for Islamic Caliphate is going on in the Northern Caucasus Publication time: 9 October 2009, 10:18 Zionists sound the alarm and call to “pay attention” to the Northern Caucasus. As ITAR-Tass reports referring to an edition of Jewish State, upon performing the analysis of situation the Jewish “experts” arrived to the conclusion that Northern Caucasus “from the internal problem of Russia transformed into an international one”. In opinion of Zionists, North Caucasus is “one of the central fronts and breeding ground for the global Jihad aimed for creation of Islamic Caliphate” now. Jewish edition asserts, “the facts about connection of Chechen militants with international terrorism are becoming known more and more frequently lately”. As an example of such «connections» the edition wrote about a recent self-immolation operation in Nazran city, which resulted in dozen of disbelievers and apostates destroyed. “One of the leaders of extremists of Northern Caucasus – the ideologist of wahhabis and terrorists Aleksandr Tikhomirov, better known as Said Buryatskiy was involved in this attack”, Zionists report a “new”. Zionists from Jewish State wrote they “conducted investigation and identified that Said Buryatskiy undergone a lengthy training in Saudi Arabia”. Let us remind that critics of Said Buryatskiy assert the contrary – that he studied nowhere and is a self-taught person. Jewish State also revealed an “intel”: it turns out that Said Buryatskiy “swore allegiance” to Dokka Umarov. Certain Yossef Bodansky is presented as an “expert” investigating Jihad in Caucasus, who, as it is claimed, was before a director of the “Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare of the US House of Representatives”. This «expert» declared, that the reason “Chechnya has become such an advanced threat are the tons of cash flowing from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states for these kinds of operations”. We will remind that Moscow and its marionette Kadyrov assert the opposite, declaring that Mujahideen have neither money nor food, and that they will die of starvation soon. A colleague of Yossef Bodansky, an “expert” Gordon Hahn from Monterey Institute complained that western mass media got used to “frame the issue of Chechnya in terms of Russian human rights violations and the Chechen people’s autonomous yearning”. “It is actually a time to revise such approach, because it no longer represents the reality, and Chechnya has become an active hive of Islamist Jihad”, Gordon Hahn told. Department of Monitoring, Kavkaz Center Source: Quote:”,”2009″,”10″,”12″

Anyway, his data may provide more once I do some more digging. Suffice to say that he seems to be more than just the average “Jihobbyist”…


In other news… I came across this photo yesterday on a blog. The picture is from Afghanistan and I think it pertinent to show here and talk a little about…


Not unto us, o Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory


As you can see this image is counter productive to the GWOT because it lends credence to the arguments of the Salafist’s, that they are in a war with invading “Crusaders” What better image to say that here than the Knights Templar huh? This was left by the French Foreign Legion and not only does the imagery of the Templar give reason to the Jihadist ferver, but also note the use of the “mice” which looks a lot like a “rat” The mice/rat image is also reminiscent of the images of rats in Nazi propaganda.

This does not help our cause…

Just one of the perception issues that we face that is fueling this fire.. Thought I would share…

Jihadist Encyclopedias


While doing background on “CENSORED31” I came across this file set from 2008/09 that I was able to perform a full metadata investigation on. The file is called “Maosoet Eltadreeb Alaskary” and is a full series PowerPoint show with video tutorials and PDF’s on how to carry out Jihad. It’s much the usual fare you see out there to teach the takfiri how to perform tradecraft without the benefit of going to a camp somewhere in Peshawar or Waziristan. What was different about it was that it had a sole author and all the files had been bundled together….


Using FOCA, I was able to import all of the files in and see what the PC name was of the machine this guy was using as well as his username, system OS, and file structures that he as using:

System: PC_Mojahed

OS: Windows Vista

User1: Mojahed

User 2: ZAK

Etc etc… You can see from the jpg’s here the rest of the data. I am still looking into tracing this guy down a bit more so look for updates later on.

Overall, I really like using FOCA to get this data not only from local files but the web too. I will be using this in the next stage of the Binyamine investigation.. He has been posting more than a few photos… I wonder what his metadata is like….

More soon.

With all of the stuxnet he said, she said, I thought I would approach the problem on what is really happening there in Iran by taking the bull by the Maltego. So, I located the aeoi site in Iran and stared my digging. Interesting how you can get so much information to start with when you use this tool to footprint people with email addresses there huh?

More later.. Just a taste for now….
