Tech and Extremism Online

CEP has pioneered efforts to combat extremists’ radicalization and recruitment tactics online. CEP has called on Internet companies, in particular social media platforms, to take action and adopt policies to stop the misuse of social media and online tools, by identifying and exposing extremists who have weaponized social media platforms for their nefarious purposes. CEP is also developing a robust technological solution that will allow Internet and social media companies to quickly remove extremist content—images, video, and audio—from their platforms.

Extremists: Their Words. Their Actions.

In Their Own Words:

The blood of martyrs marks the path of victory towards Jerusalem and Palestine. Fear of the occupation and the Americans behind it has disappeared and will not return, Allah willing. We know full well that we have the Islamic nation behind us with the Islamic Republic of Iran at its heart and that it supports us, our resistance, and our people.

Khalil al-Hayya, Senior Hamas Official Apr. 29, 2022
