    ISIS Supporters Call For Poisoning of Food in Grocery Stores Across U.S. and Europe

    Jack Moore September 2017

    The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) and its followers have traditionally used shock and awe tactics in their attacks on the West, taking knives, assault rifles and trucks on as weapons in shocking assaults. But the group’s followers are now calling for a hidden weapon: poison. The target? Western grocery stores.

    “In the third part of an English-language series promoting lone-wolf jihad in Western countries, potential attackers are advised to inject food for sale in markets with cyanide poison,” U.S.-based jihadi monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported.

    A graphic posted by the ISIS supporters in the Furat Wilayah channel on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, a platform popular with jihadists because of its secrecy and lack of takedowns compared to other platforms such as Twitter, read: “First method: poison.”

    The potential use of poison is one that has been publicized by the group’s supporters for several years, but never used. Jihadists published a guide that directed “six ways to kill the Jews” in October 2015, the methods given were to “stab him, burn him, poison him.” They have also distributed a guide on how to poison food eaten by “crusaders.” Pro-ISIS groups have also published handbooks on how to make homemade poison.

    Even though it has yet to be used, one U.S. case points to a jihadist attempting to follow the orders of the group and its followers. Police charged Amer Sinan Alhaggagi, a 22-year-old man from San Francisco, who spent time in Yemen. He is alleged to have tried to support ISIS, but also to “redefine terror” in the Bay Area.

    In his December 2016 court hearing, details emerged that he had discussed lacing drugs with rat poison and distributing them in nightclubs across the Bay Area. He had sought information from an undercover agent about mixing highly-toxic pesticide strychnine and cocaine, according to ABC.

    If promoted in the right way, the fear of it would do more harm than the act.
    Let's not help them with that effort.

    Exactly. One thing that Tylenol thing in '82 did was make everybody aware of this vulnerability and now everything comes in sealed and tamper resistant packaging. We also have FDA regulations and inspections that would likely make this harder than it sounds to pull off, at least on a large scale. I don't think there's much to worry about, Their current tactics of suicide bombings and such are more likely and more dangerous.
