[edit] jailed

Hmm one of them's been jailed for about 8 years:


[edit] Thread deletion

I notice their thread mourning the death of Osama bin Laden has been deleted; there are some sites that kept quotes from it but, annoyingly, don't identify IA as the source and so can't be used as references. Oh well; here, for posterity, is the section i'm now going to have to remove:

The forumgoers are admirers of bin Laden and were not happy when his death was reported. "I hope with tears in my eyes that it is false" said "seeker of knowledge". "I am still waiting for a news to say this all wrong and lying and you still al life," posted "islamahmad", "but if it is true beleive me we will miss you a lot but you are in our hear and your teaching to us will never go, it is inside us". "May Allah forgive his sins and raise him to the ranks of greatest Shuhada in the modern history of Islam", said Abu Abdallah al-Bulghari.

"May Allah accept him as a shaehed and grant him stay among the Prophets, saaliheen and shuhadaa and grant hin jannatul firdaws ameen", says "FOS". Gesundheit.

I think I'll be sceencapping their wackier threads from now on. Balaam (talk) 08:59, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
It's possible that it is still in Google's cache - put the URL in the search box with "cache:" in front.--ZooGuard (talk) 09:09, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Tried that, I'm afraid - they probably deleted it a while back. Balaam (talk) 09:12, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Unreal

This snapshot from 2002 is unreal.It's likely that most came upon this Website after 2007 there are IA members that haven't ever made posts guess they joined not having awareness. Anybody has any idea who owns this Website? 17br9 (talk) 10:36, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Islamic Awakening vs. the gay superheroes

Holy cow this is hilarious. Balaam (talk) 20:59, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Term

I don't think it's fair to call them psychopaths in the first paragraph. Psychopaths are unable to be loyal even to dysfunctional causes, such as Islam. See this also from Wikipedia:

Terrorists are sometimes called psychopaths, and comparisons can be drawn with traits such as antisocial violence, a selfish worldview that precludes welfare for others, lack of remorse or guilt, and blaming external events. However, such comparisons could also then be drawn more widely, for example to soldiers in wars. In addition, it has been noted that coordinated terrorist activity requires organization, loyalty and ideology; traits such as self-centeredness, unreliability, poor behavioral controls, and unusual behaviors may be disadvantages.

We don't care about Islam, or you. Please remove that and be humorous with another term. It's the majority of people who are violent, not just psychopaths.

Fair criticism; I've replaced "latent psychopaths" with "deeply troubling individuals".Balaam (talk) 12:20, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
I corrected it to troubled because you're a nice person.
Being moral nihilists or egocentrists doesn't necessarily require that they're "troubled", but it does make them "troubling" for societies that want people to behave in a civilized manner. (talk) 05:59, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
There are other problems with the title of this article. It conflicts with (1) Awakening Council]s which are Sunni militias that the US coalition today is try to organize to fight Daesh, and maybe even more confusing is the (2) Islamic Awakening or Sahwa movement which is a movement organized by the Saudi religious establishment trying to head-off the more violent Qutabist and Salafis within the Saudi Wahhabism. This title isn't helpful. It should be retitled "IslamicAwakening.com" or some such. nobsI was in Bagdad when u wer in dadsbag. 21:38, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
