On Sunday, Fox17 reported that a group claiming to be a cyber army for ISIS took credit for hacking and defacing the website for the Lamont Christian Reformed Church in Lamont, Michigan.
The defacement was discovered by 15-year-old Elizabeth Storteboom who was looking for a phone number but was presented with a different message: “You have been hacked by the United Cyber Caliphate.”
“I clicked on the website and all of the sudden this video pops up, and I’m like, what is going on?” she said. The video played, declaring: “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses and enslave your women by the permission of Allah, the Exalted.”
“It just started playing, and I was reading the bottom, and it was talking about crazy things. I called my dad in, and said he needs to see this. I covered the camera, because I was super scared there for a second.”
“It was just talking about hating Christians and how Allah was God and everything,” said Storteboom. “I was just confused. They were talking about taking women and children and stuff.”
The same group has been hacking websites since 2014, including some military online databases.
“It was pretty scary in the moment,” said Storteboom. “I didn’t know if I should cover the camera or whatever, and I didn’t know if it was that big of a deal or anything. But it was scary in the moment.”
The site was fixed by Saturday afternoon and the church has been in contact with the FBI. It’s not known if the hack was a prank or not, Fox said, and the church doesn’t see it as a serious threat.
Here’s the video report, courtesy of Fox17:
Nevertheless, the attendance to the church’s next sermon was only six people.
Robert Spencer noted:
What did this church do to attract the jihadis’ attention? Did one of their clerics host a Muhammad cartoon contest? They must have provoked the poor dears in some way. Everyone knows that jihadis would all be stockbrokers if only we wouldn’t keep poking them in the eye. When will the churches learn to submit properly?
He added: “The West, especially the churches, appears to be populated almost entirely today by cowards and trimmers. Unless this changes, total surrender will not be long in coming.”
