Facebook Clueless That ISIS Swag Was Being Peddled on Their Site

Supposedly they have taken steps to remove this stuff once they were notified.

Hate merchants are peddling hoodies, T-shirts and dolls branded with the logo of the al Qaeda-linked Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The ghoulish gear is available on the Web sites of several Indonesian retailers — which advertise their wares on Facebook.

One shirt, bearing the slogan “Mujahideen Around the World/United We Stand,” shows muscle-bound fighters wearing keffiyehs and brandishing AK-47s like heroes from an action flick.

Retailer Zirah Moslem promotes what it calls the “Islamic Style Movement” on its Web site, which features clothing extolling the terrorist groups Hamas and the Taliban and shirts that say, “We declare war. Fight Against Zionists.”

The ISIS T-shirts — which are listed in the retailer’s outdoor-wear/sporting-goods section — show images of Kalashnikov rifles and a map of the world, an apparent reference to the terrorists’ plans for global domination.

Other Indonesia-based merchants peddling jiwhadi rags include Kavkaz Struggle Wear, which sells T-shirts with the slogan “I Love Jihad” in English and Arabic, and Rezji Islamic Clothing and Shop, which advertises small action figures of ISIS fighters.

None of the retailers’ Web sites or Facebook pages said whether profits fund ISIS’s violent campaign.

The pages were taken down after The Post brought them to Facebook’s attention, according to a rep for the social-media giant.

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

That doesn’t explain how the ads ran in the first place. Typical mealy-mouthed bullshit.

    Not nearly as cool as my Che shirt I got at Hot Topic comrade. Let me check my trust fund and I’ll see if can get one of these hip shirts. Crush the capitalist pig state! To each according to his need. Workers of the world unite. I’m putting on my Warner Bros officially licensed Guy Fawkes mask now.
