ISIS-branded merchandise sold on Amazon, Facebook

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Despite Facebook’s claims that a cluster of pages peddling ISIS goods would be taken down, recent searches show many pages containing merchandise with the terrorist group’s symbols still remain on the most popular social-media site in the world.

“At Facebook, 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 in June. “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.”

The items offered for sale include baseball caps, clothing and jewelry – many bearing the familiar black flag associated with the terrorist group and its slogan, “Baqiyah.”

    Anyone buying or wearing these shirts will be considered an ISIS Terrorist. Any company promoting or selling them should be shut down and have its management arrested and prosecuted. This is simple logic. They are enticing sympathizers to get involved with ISIS. We are at war with ISIS. As Obama says, we will hunt them down no matter what country they are in. SO, if you wear one of the shirts…you will be an instant target and perhaps suffer the consequences of patriotic Americans. Don’t be that stupid, it could get you killed or imprisoned as an ISIS terrorist. This is no joke guys. I am amazed at Amazon and Facebook for doing this and will boycott any of their services from this point on. To Hell with Amazon and Facebook. They are unpatriotic and evil now by promoting ISIS. Just because they now say; Oh we will remove it does not change the fact that they did it. They are guilty as charged. What would happen to any US citizen if they were on the web or street selling these shirts and materials? Yea, exactly. So, are Amazon and Facebook execs above us and immune from any criminal prosecution? Obviously so. Who really protects them? Welcome to earth guys! Major corporations need to be legally accountable for their criminal acts too. This is also a matter of National Security, right? So where is the NSA and FBI? Do they choose to ignore this type of activity by Corporations? Aiding and abiding the enemy even by promotional means is a war crime guys. Wow, this is amazing and just mind boggling. We all need to wake up and do the right thing for the right reason. People are dying horribly because of the ISIS terrorists and they have threatened the USA, that is us the people. Lets stop this evil group and anyone who promotes it in any way. All I can say is contact the authorities if you see something related, be careful and alert but do not take the law into your own hands for your own safety. I know that our Federal agencies and law enforcement are sincerely on it but some have their hands tied by the corrupted leaders whom protect the corporations. We need change. We need accountability and responsibility. Not this protected ignorance of truth. I am only one person but I will cancel my accounts with Amazon and Facebook. I will not support them in any way. They have violated my trust. How about you?
