Isil bans private Internet access in Syria’s Raqqa

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has banned private Internet use inside the Syrian city of Raqqa, forcing fighters to use public Internet cafés which can be monitored.

The extremist group distributed a leaflet in the city last week warning Internet providers that they had four days to cut off private Wi-Fi connections.

The document was published online on Sunday by a group of media activists known as Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS). Its authenticity was later confirmed by a source with contacts inside the city.

    Allah apparently has trouble forcing his followers to do as they’re told in his little paradise on earth, so a totally freedom-less police state is required. They’ll ban laughter and smiles at some point, no doubt.

    If Wifi is the enemy then language itself and the use of it must also be the enemy. Be a dolt, or die at the hands of a dolt. That is some message.
