ISIS is going all out

T-shirts and hoodies branded with the “ISIS” (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) emblem are available to buy online for supporters of the extremist group for only $7, according to the Huffington Post, prompting concerns from social media networks.

The products are being sold by the Indonesia-based Zira Moslem Merch on their various Facebook pages and even on their website.

The online merchandise website labels itself as an "Islamic style movement" and also offers shirts with slogans such as “Muslim Brotherhood,” "F**k Israel," "Pray for Gaza" and "Mujahedeen Around The World United We Stand."

Since the beginning of June, ISIS has gained control of many swathes of Iraqi territories including Mosul, the country’s second largest city. Their main objective is to fight the Shiite government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

A page on Facebook named “Kaos Islamic State of Iraq and Sham,” which was launched in the past 24 hours, also sells ISIS embedded products

According to Fox News, many Facebook pages selling the items were closed down after the news organization made queries as to why they are not certified. However, new ones began to spring up.

One page, believed to be the original Zira Moslem page, generated more than 9,000 likes before it was removed.

Facebook spokesman Israel Hernandez said in a statement: “At Facebook, we have rules that bar direct statements of hate, attacks on private individuals and groups and the promotion of terrorism.”

He added: “We have a team of professional investigators both here in the U.S. and abroad who enforce these rules. Where hateful content is posted and reported, Facebook removes it and disables accounts of those responsible.”

What is unknown is whether the merchandise is successfully being sold or whether ISIS is making a profit from this.

The militants noted another victory on Monday when Sunni tribes announced they were in negotiations to hand over the only major border crossing between Iraq and Jordan to them.

The greatest hero of the Mujahadeen was Ahmad Shah Massoud ; he was the only one the Taliban couldnt destroy; he was killed eventually by Al Quaeda, blown up by two suicide bombers disguised as journalists, under the pretext of an interview for them; they were carrying explosives strapped under their belt.

Exactly.

They're leftover baubles from the side that lost the war.

Nothing more, nothing less.

We don't flip-out over Japanese or Soviet decorations.

Re: Outrage Over Nazi Christmas Tree Decorations Auction

If people want to get all bent out of shape over nazi historical symbolic items. They should feel the same about anything symbolically in reference too historical Christianity.

Re: Outrage Over Nazi Christmas Tree Decorations Auction

I can see why it's caused some to object in the Czech Republic. That symbol represents a lot of killing and suffering in that country.

But at the same time, they are historical items, and nobody is being hurt. I'm sure they sold well. I wouldn't mind having some authentic Nazi medallion of some sort. I wouldn't hang it on my wall or anything though.

I think there's plenty of people who get bent out of shape over Christian symbols, especially historic ones. Like most of the Muslim world.
I think a better comparison would be the Nazi symbols and the confederate symbol, at least among Americans. Obviously in some countries the Nazi symbol represents horrors that happened in the streets of their cities, where family photos on the walls are a reminder of what Nazi's took from them.

No difference from Japanese and German captured weapons, uniforms, medals, regalia, etc.

I would like to see them go to a museum though.
