Facebook Removes Pages Selling ISIS Merchandise

Facebook recently shut down pages that sold merchandise that displays and celebrates the terror organization, ISIS, which has caused a reign of terror through Iraqi cities and along its borders.

“We have rules that bar direct statements of hate, attacks on private individuals and groups, and the promotion of terrorism,” said Facebook spokesman Israel Hernandez. “Whenever we become aware of possible violations of our terms, we will investigate these instances and take action if violations of our Statements of Rights and Responsibilities take place.”

The retail websites originate from Indonesia.

The merchandise included T-Shirts, hoodies and action figures, emblazoning slogans like “Mujahideen Around the World United We Stand,” “Fight for Freedom Till The Last Drop of Blood,” and “We Stand for ISIS.”

One website, Rezji Militant, offers a poster reading, “Always Fight Against Jews Zionism.”

Kaos Islamic State of Iraq and Sham displays a black ISIS T-shirt that has two rifles printed over a picture of the world. The going rate for these pro-terrorist T-shirts is between $7 and $13.

Zirah Moslem had over 9,000 likes before Facebook shut down their page. On their website, they are still selling “No More Democrazy” T-shirts, as well as shirts that feature men wearing scarves around their faces.
