Hamas Supporter Tricks Jihadi Bloggers With Fake Statement

A Hamas supporter using the online alias "Southern Knight" has tricked supporters of al Qaeda and other militant Islamist groups, by posting a fake statement that he made himself, announcing the creation of a new Salafist Jihadi group under the name "Tawhid Brigades" in Gaza.

The man showed exactly how he designed the statement on his Youtube page. He also showed the reactions he got from online supporters of al Qaeda who instantly cheered and exulted over the creation of the group, without even knowing who were its members or what it stood for.
