Could Al-Qaeda use Bitcoin ?
Is it possible that they are already using it ?

Has anyone thought about the possibility of them using the coinbase to send messages to, or to activate Sleeper Cells in the US and abroad ?
It's quite possible that there just might be someone in a cave somewhere in the Middle East, currently able to stay in contact with operatives thanks to Bitcoin.

Should there be an Anti-Terrorist Bitcoin Organization who monitors blocks and transactions for this very reason ?

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

- Or being used to detonate explosives in Little Timmy's bedroom upon 1BoMb sending a transaction with a .911BTC fee. Hard to say.

You are correct..... Peace.

Here's more 'peace' for you to think about:
http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

I think that Satoshi was an Al-Qaeda operative who coded Bitcoin to first and foremost be a secure communication's tool, by exploiting the World's greed using an 'Economic' front end of sorts..... such as a currency ? or more specifically, a CRYPTO currency, strong emphasis on crypto (for communications purposes)....

Bitcoin itself is meant to be an economic 'revolution' of sorts, that attempts to circumvent the traditional Bank's stranglehold on society...and is essentially an attack on Government-led Capitalism in itself, albeit, a small attack at this point.

It's not unreasonable to consider (as was kinda mentioned above) that once mobile devices are more 'Bitcoin Friendly', that a specific transaction amount could not be used to trigger an event on the receiving end.

Just like My Little Pony. Come to think of it, couldn't Al-Qaeda use something as innocent as a child's cartoon to send messages via same's message boards, if they aren't already?

The Islamophobia propaganda machine has its roots in years of concerted online, media and marketing campaigns. This well oiled machine of hate has attracted many followers, and they can be broken up into several groups (there may be considerable overlap):

1.) Those who were ripe for the picking. These individuals already had a hate for Islam and Muslims or Arabs, they were already racist in one way or another, and easily attached themselves to Islamophobia.

2.) Opportunists. These individuals are always looking for a way to make a buck, to line their pockets. Real, honest work doesn’t suit their tastes and so they’ve devoted themselves to that centuries old money-maker, hate.

3.) True believers. They may come from various ends of the ideological spectrum, most of them are very afraid, fear courses through their every waking moment, they are made even more afraid by modern interpretations of say Biblical prophecies, or fears about the existential threat of the end of Western society.

4.) The gullible or the naive. These individuals read and believe the Islamophobic propaganda because they perceive the arguments as objective, factual, honest, and fitting with their worldview, or answering their confusion and incomprehension of world events or history.

Where to begin *sigh  - by the way your at post 999 flip that around and you get 666 fitting lol

btw: so anytime anyone questions islam and the falsehood it is they should be branded as islamaphobic - got it!

Bitcoin is a communication tool.  It communicates economic preferences.

It's possible, but they most probably also use Visa/Mastercard, Paypal, Dwolla, LibertyReserve, and cash.

The solution isn't destroying Bitcoin, nor harassing the people who use it. The solution is religious profiling, all Al-Qaeda operatives are Muslims. Al-Qaeda isn't the first organization of this nature in the Islamic world, there are many precedents, I think the Hassassins (cca. 1092 CE) were the first.

I'm not saying all Muslims are bad, I think the majority of Muslims are good generous people with good intentions, and this includes senbonzakura. But they refuse to acknowledge they have a problem in their midst (in fact many problems, like the treatment of women, human rights, and censorship in Islamic countries. The fact that these problems persist after the Arab Spring, shows this is a problem inherent to Islam and not local regimes). And for this non-Muslims have their privacy invaded, and are harassed at airports.

Islam is a religion composed of many races/ethnicity, the term racist doesn't apply here. Not all "islamophobes" hate Arabs.

Quote
2.) Opportunists. These individuals are always looking for a way to make a buck, to line their pockets. Real, honest work doesn’t suit their tastes and so they’ve devoted themselves to that centuries old money-maker, hate.
Or they are honest researchers.

Quote
3.) True believers. They may come from various ends of the ideological spectrum, most of them are very afraid, fear courses through their every waking moment, they are made even more afraid by modern interpretations of say Biblical prophecies, or fears about the existential threat of the end of Western society.
I'll give you this one, but it also applies to Muslims. Interpretations about Dajjal comes to mind.

Quote
4.) The gullible or the naive. These individuals read and believe the Islamophobic propaganda because they perceive the arguments as objective, factual, honest, and fitting with their worldview, or answering their confusion and incomprehension of world events or history.
Same about the people who convert revert to Islam. And who believe the whitewashed history.

You know what annoys me? Muslims decry western imperialism and the crusades (which where an answer to Muslim conquests), but laud the Caliphate, and the Ottoman Empire. They pride themselves for their tolerance towards Christians and Jews, but always fail to mention that it was not extended to pagans/heathens. For the choice was convert, death, or slavery. Or how they converted Persia (Iran) by force, because they where "worshiping fire". Or how many girls were kidnapped for the harems or Sultans, and viziers. They also fail to mention that slave trade continued long after it was banned in other places.

As far as inventions go...Algebra? A closer look reveals that it has older roots than Islamic scholars. Arabic numerals, has anyone checked Indian numerals?

Dishonesty or Double-think?

Don't make such statements without evidence. Satoshi is most likely a Japanese hacker, considering how concerned the Japanese are about economy, and how i-WAT has its origins in Japan, it fits the pattern. If not, then he is a British or American hacker and anime fan.

Get the fuck out of my thread, hate-mongers and idealists alike.

This is about Al-Qaeda and NOT another Soap-Box for either side to wage their Pro or Anti Islamic Wars.

Fuck me....

The ONLY reason I posted that link that I did, was as an example (hind-sight being 20/20....it turned out to be a BAD example of terrorism stats).

WAGE YOUR HOLLY WARS ELSEWHERE.

For anyone too fucking stupid to get 'THE JOKE' ....wrap your mind around this:

Remember when Luke Jr inserted prayers into the blockchain ? I MADE A JOKING REFERENCE TO IT BEING USED TO MESSAGE TERRORISTS.

I am not a fucking racist and I REFUSE to be lumped into that barrel of fucking Monkeys.

TRUST NO ONE !

Peace as in the level 600 of the scale of consciousness put forth by David Hawkins.
"[...]That which is is witnessing and that which is witnessed take on the same identity; the observer dissolves into landscape and becomes equally the observed. Everything is connected to everything else by a Presence whose power is infinite, exquisitely gentle, yet rock solid. Great works of art, music and architecture that calibrate between 600 and 700 can transport us temporarily to higher levels of consciousness and are universally recognized as inspirational and timeless"
Part of this resonates with Bitcoin, in my own humble view and opinion.

Your URL is most likely at the level of hatred and fear, calibrating at the level of 100 - 150. 500 zeros less than Peace. It is a common place to be at for alot of people, but an extremely weak place, one that leads to struggle and exhaustion.

"TheReligionofPeace.com is a pluralistic, non-partisan...." Come on... Do you actually espouse such beliefs or is that google who served you something to retort how dare I claim that Bitcoin helps spread peace?

Islamaphobia is the new anti-Semitism in the west.  Fascist and nationalist party's in the west used to attack Jews now they attack Muslims.

Yeah but why mention Al-Qaeda which may not actually exist as an organisation and just be an ideology.  There are plenty of other terrorist or criminal organisations to pick on.

There very well may be, but I am not aware of any others that my 'joke' could have applied to....being a 'Westerner' and having the whole idea of 'Sleeper Cells' rammed down our throats by the Warmongering US media.

If there are other 'Terrorist' organizations that currently lay dormant in North America with intent to rise up and strike against Western oppression/culture/gluttony/influence etc, that my 'joke' could have applied to while maintaining the same 'Pop Culture' interest.... I apologize for leaving you out. It was not my intent to forget anyone Wink
