The author focuses on the historical roots of jihadism and colonization of the Web giving life to the Internet jihadism. Therefore, he reconstructs the main evolu-tionary steps of al_Qaeda media strategy. This analysis is essential to not fall into the "persuading trap" of the contemporary jihadi narratives and understand the complexity success of the Islamic State (cyber-)social media campaign, in terms of elaborating the violent collective imagination and stimulate individuals to attack, over the last three years.
