Facebook Page of the Day

DaeshDaily Preview: This is an Iraqi page that supports Daesh but doesn’t mention Daesh in any way. It talks about the “revolutionaries” in Anbar, Mosul, Tikrit, etc. vs. the enemy, which is the Iraqi forces. They publish reports, photos and videos from Daesh-occupied areas. It has more than 350,000 “likes”. Many people on this page might not be Iraqis, and many people click “like” on this page just to encounter its messages, but even if only half of the people on this page are Iraqis who support Daesh, it amounts to a lot of people. Most are educated people who live in Iraq or outside Iraq, including the US and other western countries.
