UPDATE via Fox News: Facebook promptly shut down a cluster of pages that peddled T-Shirts, hoodies and action figures touting the murderous terror organization ISIS after FoxNews.com contacted the social media giant to ask why they had not been flagged.
In Indonesia, where it is legal to join and promote Jihadist groups, a website is now selling terrorist group T-shirts, hoodies and other accessories.
The items have the ISIS, Taliban and other jihadist logos on them.
With more than 9,000 likes on Facebook, retailer Zirah Moslem on its website calls itself a purveyor of “Islamic style” and sells clothing that promotes a range of Islamist groups.
In one design, emblazoned with the slogan “Mujahideen Around the World/ United We Stand”, figures wearing keffiyeh and brandishing weapons pose like characters on a Hollywood movie poster.
Other T-shirts promote the Taliban and Hamas, both named as terrorist organisations by the US state department.
Kaos Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (Isis) sells T-shirts under the outdoor wear/sporting goods section with the name Isis alongside pictures of Kalashnikov rifles and a globe, presumably signifying the group’s plans for world domination.
Other Indonesia-based companies selling jihad-themed clothing online include Kavkaz Struggle Wear, which sells T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “I Love Jihad” in English and Arabic, and Rezji Islamic Clothing and Shop, which advertises small figures of Isis fighters, which come with a free sticker.
Isis’s bloody exploits in Iraq, where it is battling government forces for control of swathes of the country, have won it supporters among Indonesia’s Sunni Muslim population.
“They see that Isis has succeeded in some areas in Syria and Iraq,” Jakarta based terrorism expert Solahudin said. “They’ve already declared an Islamic state there. A caliphate is the ultimate goal for every jihadist in Indonesia.”
