With the recent terrorist attacks in Beirut and Paris, everyone has been following the latest news about the growing threat of ISIS. French President Francois Hollande has recently declared that France is at war, and other countries are ramping up their national security.

But another group is getting involved. A group that has become notorious for exploiting members of the KKK, as well as political figures.

Now, the activist group Anonymous is setting its sights on ISIS. "Make no mistake: Anonymous is at war with Daesh," the hacker group shared on Twitter. (Daesh is a lesser-known name for ISIS.) "We won't stop opposing #IslamicState. We're also better hackers."

Wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, a representative of the group is seen in a video, where he claims, "We will not give up, we do not forgive." He then vows that the hackers will continue until they "neutralize" those responsible for the recent terrorist attacks.

It might sound like a serious threat, but Anonymous has made this claim in the past. Just last summer, the group announced a "full-scale cyber war" targeting ISIS that aimed to reduce the terrorists' social media network.

Whether ISIS was impacted by the efforts of Anonymous is still left to be seen. However, Anonymous is claiming to have already made a significant impact since the recent attacks. In a recent tweet, the hackers stated they've identified over 2000 pro-ISIS Twitter accounts.

What do you think? Should Anonymous get involved? Does this make you feel more or less secure? Let us know in the comments.
