As the world popular hacker group of enthusiasts who call themselves Anonymous continues its cyber fight against the terrorist group Isis or Islamic State who hit Europe, other internet users have joined the fight.
The hacker group has previously promised to hunt down members of the extremist group, while creative users of imageboard 4chan have decided to fight back with humour, using rubber ducks in an operation dubbed “Allahu Quackbar” in an effort to mock the terrorists’ religious battle cry, “Allahu Akbar”.
“How about castrating the image of IS by replacing the faces on ALL the propaganda photos with bath ducks?” a 4chan user wrote.

Since then, many Photoshop fans have took to the programme to stick the heads of rubber ducks onto images featuring Isil fighters.
An album dubbed ‘creates the duck state’ has been viewed more than 100,000 times on photo-sharing site Imgur.

“Great, now I’m scared to take a bath,” commented one user. Another wrote: “This is how we fight Daesh. Humiliate them. The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
The hacker collective also launched a plan to introduce Islamic State supporters to the wonderful world of Rick Astley. The campaign comes after Anonymous declared war on the Islamic State following the terror attacks in Paris.
“You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go, ” an announcer wearing an Anonymous Guy Fawkes mask and speaking French said in a video released to the public.
“We will launch the biggest operation ever against you. Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared. The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
