UPDATE: Was that really an ISIS flag in New Jersey?

On Wednesday’s radio program, Glenn talked about a photo circulating around Twitter that appeared to show an ISIS flag flying outside of a Garwood, New Jersey home.

Below is the tweet that set off the firestorm:


By end of day Wednesday, the home’s owner, Mark Dunaway, had voluntarily taken down the flag. In an email to the Washington Free Beacon, Garwood Police Chief Bruce D. Underhill confirmed his officers were “aware of the situation” and “have taken the appropriate steps.” He denied, however, that police “ordered” the Dunaway to take down the flag.

In an interview with WCBS-TV, Dunaway claimed he had flown the flag on Fridays and during Ramadan without incident for about a decade. He said the flag was merely a sign of his Muslim faith.

“This is just me expressing that I am a Muslim,” he said. “That’s it.”

Dunaway also denied having any knowledge of the flag’s connection to the militant group ISIS.

“It does not have anything to do with ISIS. Like I said, people use flags for different reasons, that was not my intentions at all,” he said. “It may sound like I’m pleading ignorance. I had no idea, because I try not to get involved and pay attention to that stuff.”

Watch the local CBS report below:

Glenn, Pat, and Stu talked about the new details on radio this morning. If Dunaway has in fact been flying the flag for several years, Stu believes it is possible he really didn’t understand the connection.

    “Anybody who is flying anything other than the American flag outside their home has to be either a terrorist, an illegal immigrant, or a person who hates America” – everyone in the Tea Party

    • http://truthofg.blogspot.com/ Connor Kenway

      Seeing how we fly flags that represent America in one form or another. Yeah great comparison moron. This is a brain on liberalism.

      • John

        Your last sentence doesn’t make sense: liberalism is a symptom of the lack of a functioning brain, one incapable of critical thought, symbolic of one that bases their actions and rhetoric on and with the BS that is spoon-fed to them in sound-bites because anything else confuses them.

    • AmericanEric

      Jeff, all you seem to do is lash out. Spiteful, ignorant, and just down right mean comments spew from you. Maybe put some of that energy in to something constructive. Also, be careful with generalizations as broad generalizations are typically used by the ignorant and uneducated because they simply do not think for themselves.

    • BlueMN

      It’s liking saying anyone flying an Irish flag or wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day is an IRA member.

      • Peter Hornbeck

        there is a diffrence between the irish flag and the ira flag

    • Meathead

      I TOTALLY DISAGREE!! Along with the American Flag (I served 22-years in Naval Aviation and STRONGLY support the Constitution, especially the 2nd Amendment), I fly the Texas State Flag (only state flag that can fly at the same height as the American Flag) and the Gadsden Flag (one of the original flags) and they ALL fly at the same height along the privacy fence in front of my pool for passerby street traffic to enjoy.
      I am also the First Sergeant in the Lightfoot Militia and STRONGLY support FREEDOM!!!

      • Heath Holmes

        Why is the Texas flag the only one that can fly the same height as the American flag? You “Texans” act like your state is so awsome and free and you can’t even open carry in that moderate mixture of liberalism.

        • homeschool mama

          Because Texas, at one time, was its own country. They agreed to join the union under certain conditions. I believe this was one of them.

      • AsSeenOnTv

        You’re wrong about your state flag. I suggest you read the flag code. Any state flag can be flown at the same height at the US flag, no flag in the US can be flown higher than the US flag. The Ordinance of Annexation and Joint Resolution have nothing in them in regards to flags, as such the US Flag Code becomes the governing authority on flying flags.

    • Filthy_Kuffir

      Nope, we don’t believe they all are what you mentioned, but most of them are.

  • http://truthofg.blogspot.com/ Connor Kenway

    Well for some reason I do not buy that.

    • John Waldenberger

      If you do not believe that, then you are the problem in this country.

      Last time I checked you could be free to fly a flag of your faith.

      Better get all dem catholics flying their flags… i bet theyre all socialists!

      • William Fisher

        I don’t buy it either and you sound clueless John Boy. Seems you prefer being politically correct rather than just correct

        • gerielou

          NO, John is not being politically correct . . . because PC doesn’t allow anyone to ‘be free to fly a flag of your faith.’
          He is just being an anti American liberal.

          • John Waldenberger

            ACTUALLY Both of you its called being free to express your religion. last time I checked we still had that right, Obama hasnt taken it away… yet

          • Robin Watson

            who would want to hang up that black flag when we see what it is all about on tv?

          • Ariel Solomon

            Some people don’t have TV or pay attention to the news.

            The flag itself has been in existence since before Isis, at least as early as 2006.

      • Kelley Hughes

        People who walk around with blinders on, like yourself is the bigger problem with our country. If you think for 1 second that man didn’t know the implications of that fact, then you’re a koolaid drinking communist just like your president.

        • John Waldenberger

          Im sorry I dont have a president in office.

          WHy dont you come back when you know what youre talking about.

          • Latin2

            You don’t have a president, you have a khalif

        • Ryan Serrato

          Kelly, if he was supporting isil as you believe, he’s pretty brave to show his face. You talk about people with blinders on, maybe check the mirror?

          • Marbran

            Just like John above, another new account to defend this man and his flag. He has his right to free speech, as do we all, but he also has to deal with the consequences. He’s probably thought it through, which is why he took it down.

          • AJ Tommy Guns

            No he knows exactly what the flag means. It’s only because now it’s been reported that he took it down. It’s common sense and anybody who is saying he has the right to express his freedom of religion is the blind one. That religion is a threat to all who do not share the same belief. You are blind to what is going on in Iraq and this country and are caught up in the “social media” outlook. The flag should be taken from this man and burned. He can practice his religion all he wants but supporting the mass killings of innocent people is basically what that flag means and I hope anyone in their right mind let’s this d bag know….you ain’t flying that crap in this country!

        • Robin Watson

          just trying to see if he could get away with it. Im sure it is coming to U.S. God Almighty help us all. He is the only One who can help us now.

        • Brendan

          “koolaid drinking communist”… like the President?
          No… people like you are the problem with this country.
          It’s a shame you don’t understand American principles.

      • Noodles17

        Then tell me why an American citizen was ordered to take down the American flag he was flying from his home so that it would not offend his Muslim neighbors. Wake up! American CITIZENS have less rights than all the illegals in this country,,,,muslim or otherwise!

        • sam

          It is not enough to write about it or complain, a lot has been written before, it is time to act. Millions of Americans fought wars defending others but never their own.

        • rsuca

          He took it down voluntarily .

        • Ryan Serrato

          Tell me where the police ordered the homeowner to take it down. Freedom is a two way street.

          • Noodles17

            I’m sorry, but I can’t remember the city only the state which was Texas.

          • Guest

            They must be just defending themselves from the evil empire of the US huh? I hope this guy was ordered to take it down!

      • Shoathree

        I don’t buy it either. Claims ignorance about the flag and ISIS using it. Right now with all that is going on he damn well should have taken it done. Free to fly a flag??? Perhaps you didn’t hear about American Citizens that have had to remove the American Flag from outside. Wake up.

      • gerielou

        NOPE . . . what muslim, active enough to put up …. not 1, but 2 muslim flags, isn’t aware of what is happening in the muslim world today????? That’s a huge part of being muslim. And if he is claiming that he ‘just didn’t understand the connection’, then he is lying and put it up on purpose.

      • Peter Hornbeck

        that flag is not a flag of faith it is a flag of a terrorist org

        • John Waldenberger

          proove it

          it is not one mans fault that a group of radicals are using their faith to promote hatred and death

          • kktex12

            I have been there and seen it. It is not a flag of faith but a declaration of war against anyone who is not a mooooslim. So you are an America hating treasonous pos.

            Look it up John, why should someone spend time “proving ” it when you seemingly type as well as anyone else.

            Lati2 is correct…now you don’t have to do any of your own research.

      • Moosetracks48

        Then why are Americans constantly ordered to remove their flags from their own property, and ordered not to wear clothing to school campuses with our American flag because it might offend someone‼️‼️

          it’s all liberals,

        • Robin Watson

          if someone is offended by our American flag, then they shouldnt be living here..Go back where they came from if they dont like it. Its our flag and mine is up everyday and it will stay up everyday…

        • ReformSchool

          Self-serving elected officials have gradually but thoroughly destroyed our republic. Trampling its Constitution, they have transformed mandatory public education for ‘We, The People’ as a program to create a responsible citizenry by training their minds to think critically, logically and effectively; to a program to create irresponsible ‘sheeple’ by training their minds to think emotionally, illogically and ineffectively. Media conglomerates have proven more effective at swaying public opinion than flag-waving PC (Political Correctness) as tools to stifle political dissent. One sign of its victims’ presence is written opinions lacking correct spelling and puntuation, like questions without ‘?’

          The [U.S.] Flag Code provides:

          Flags must never be worn as articles of clothing.

          Flag patches may be sewn to official uniforms.

          Worn-out flag must be destroyed at dignified ceremonies, preferably by burial or burning.

          Thus laws defining flag-burning as crime or treason reveal massive ignorance, proof that “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and avoid all doubt!”

          • Kenith France Jr.

            Retiring an American flag through the process of burning it requires the flag to be separated from the union and then burned in a solemn ceremony, not like you see on TV where it’s still in someone’s hands or on the ground, or for that matter still flying on a flagpole. Burning the American flag for reasons other than honorably retiring it, should be an offense in my opinion. My opinion is, of course different than many, maybe it’s because I was brought up with the understanding of what the Red, White and Blue was supposed to stand for. I served with respect and dignity under many different Presidents, many of which I did not politically or morally agree with, but I and we as American fighting forces understood the we did not fight for the President, but we the People. This flag will be draped over my coffin when I pass from this Earth. It and the one that covered my Fathers coffin, will be presented to my Son. That Ladies and Gentlemen is my greatest honor. In America, armed rebellion isn’t something you see every day, however, the lack of a community interest in the way things are being carried out is shameful to say the least. I say get off our asses, and as I read a few days ago, put it to the politicians in this manner, What are you doing for the Americans this year? understand the ” If we stop feeding the Wolves at the door they will attack us” mentality of some folks, but if we don’t wake up and start taking care of business at home, we will have nothing to give to anybody, includuding the folks here at home who need it. You must sometimes help yourself before you can help others.

      • Something Is Wrong

        You know, throughout history the swastika was actually a variation of a crucifix and was often seen as a symbol of peace and unity. Hitler perverted it from its original meaning but even so, if you go fly a flag with a swastika outside your house today, there is no justification you’ll ever give that anyone is going to listen to. I don’t know if this flag has historically been an innocent symbol of faith or not but I know that it has not been for a few years now. Furthermore, I’m not really sure how you show your pride in a religion that you try to avoid news on and try not to get involved in. I have my doubts about the claimed innocence with which this was flown

        • John

          Spot on take.

        • John Waldenberger

          Yes the swastika was a symbol of peace. You also have to make sure its pointed the correct way to show that you are using it as a symbol of peace, and probably avoid white and red.

          Maybe he is disgusted, like many many americain muslims in what radical “idealists” over seas are doing to pervert what was once a beautiful religion.

          • Latin2

            “Once beautiful religion”? You haven’t read the 1st biography of Muhammad have you or the hadiths?

          • Doris C

            Right he was not a righteous man.

          • Something Is Wrong

            Um, you’re mistaking the swastika as a symbol of Christianity (as manipulated by Hitler) with the swastika as used (by pure coincidence of form) anciently by far eastern cultures. The two uses are totally unrelated and the symbols evolved separate of one another.

            As far as a “once beautiful religion” is concerned, I’m wondering if that religion was beautiful before or after the Moors (dedicated Muslims) conquered all of North Africa, invaded Spain, and tried to take over as much of Europe as they could. I have known Muslims who were good people but in all honesty, they were Muslims who really didn’t even know anything about their religion, definitely didn’t practice it, and were Muslim basically because that was the cultural background they had come from (mostly from Indonesia). I also knew another Muslim while I was deployed who wasn’t really in favor of Islam as a religion beyond the fact that it allowed him to do whatever he wanted and have sex with any woman he wanted. As he explained to me, in order for him to get in trouble for having sex with a woman he wasn’t married to, there would have to be 2 witnesses that would have had to actually witness penetration. Since women are considered only half a person, if the witnesses were women, there would have to be four witnesses and all you’d have to do to prevent getting in trouble is pull out whenever somebody came in the room so they couldn’t witness actual penetration. Yeah, that was straight from a Muslim’s mouth who didn’t understand why every man alive didn’t want to be a Muslim. What a beautiful religion (sarcasm).

          • Doris C

            Has not been a beautiful religion ever. Remember Saladin during the crusades? Killed many many Christiand with beheadings and crucifixion. That was like 1100 or so, Im fuzzy about the time but it was a long long time ago. So when exactly was it a beautiful religion?

          • Equis

            But it’s truly amazing how quiet our American Muslims are in this country regarding these despicable acts isn’t it?

            Its amazing how quiet things are when you put headphones in and listen to rhetoric instead of your fellow Americans.

          • Carol Chang

            mohammedanism was never a beautiful religion. especially for women. It is ugly and perverted. They do manage to build some beautiful temples, however, to worhip the death and sex cult in.

            The ISIS is a caliphate project of creating a Sunni Islamist state. It is not a project of the Sunni population of Iraq which historically has been committed to a secular system of government. The caliphate project is a US design. The advances of ISIS forces is intended to garnish broad support within the Sunni population directed against the al-Maliki government

            Through its covert support of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, Washington is overseeing the demise of its own proxy regime in Baghdad. The issue, however, is not “regime change”, nor is the “replacement” of the al-Maliki regime contemplated.

            The division of Iraq along sectarian-ethnic lines has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than 10 years.

            What is envisaged by Washington is the outright suppression of the Baghdad regime and the institutions of the central government, leading to a process of political fracturing and the elimination of Iraq as a country.

            This process of political fracturing in Iraq along sectarian lines will inevitably have an impact on Syria, where the US-NATO sponsored terrorists have in large part been defeated.

            Destabilization and political fragmentation in Syria is also contemplated: Washington’s intent is no longer to pursue the narrow objective of “regime change” in Damascus. What is contemplated is the break up of both Iraq and Syria along sectarian-ethnic lines.

        Catholics today aren’t beheading people, or killing non-believers or selling women into slavery.

        The BLACK flag of Islam is the JIHAD flag of an expanding war in honor and resurgence of the Caliphate. That certain flag is the flag for the Caliphate and also used by the terrorist group Al Shabaab. The White flag with Islamic lettering is peace, green flag with Islamic lettering means Islam…BLACK FLAG means WAR Jihad.

      • http://truthofg.blogspot.com/ Connor Kenway

        Last time I checked that flag of faith is flown by terrorist that chop people’s heads off. It has nothing to do with faith because that flag really stands for a terrorist runned calafate.

      • Marbran

        That is not the flag of any “faith;” it is the jihad flag of ISIS. It has ALWAYS stood for terrorism. Get a clue.

      • tjp77

        Hmmm… and if someone flew a swastika flag, I’m sure that would be just fine, right? I mean, to Hindus the swastika is an ancient sign of peace and life. Different flags mean different things to people, right?

      • Jill Sawyer

        Really john? Last time you checked? My question to you is when was the last time you checked the fact that we cannot fly any flag we want to? When is the last time you checked that an AMERICAN FLAG was ordered to be taken down off a school and the Latinos placed the MEXICAN FLAG ON IT? This home owner knows exactly what he has been doing AND HE KNOWS what that flag means and is flown for….don’t for a moment think otherwise…we have ISIS on our American soil as I speak and trust me it’s a matter of time before we Christians in this land will start to be persecuted as those in Iraq and other countries are….get your head out of the sand and look at what is going on in this world

      • jak

        Except if your HOA disapproves.

    • Andrew

      The reason is that this flag is not symbolic. It has writing on it in Arabic, and the writing means something. I don’t know what it means. But I bet the Muslim flying it does know.

      • Brian Mooring

        In Arabic calligraphy, one reads from the bottom up, so this flag reads

        “Muhammad is the prophet of God,” “There is no God but Allah”

      • Marbran

        It is the shahada – the expressed allegiance to Muhammad and Allah. It is called “the jihad flag” because it was first used by the progenitor to ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq in 2006. It has always been tied to terrorism.

    • ShootsAlongWay

      How about the red flag in front of it. What flag is that? Not an American Flag. Looks like a crescent moon, and something else?

  • TJ

    Before it was an ISIS flag it belonged to the parent of ISIS which is Al Qaeda.

    • jaybenson

      Muddied history between the two… not ideologically but as a result of power struggles. ISIS grew out of Al Qaeda in Iraq which joined Al Qaeda to gain credibility and support. Al Queda disavows ISIS as it is today but a merger is likely in the future as ISIS gains in popularity and strength. IMHO

      The reason the Negros riot and loot is because they are Negros and that’s what Negros do. If they want it, take it because they are entitled to it. Start shooting the SOB’s and they will stop the practice.

Now with the open border terrorist are pouring in too. Obama has tried to create chaos with racial division. And multiple false injustices (Martin and now this new kid killed by police when he tried to take the cops gun and shoot him) and with encouraged and legislated moral decline. Those things(although rioting happening now) haven’t given him his much coveted arab spring. So now he is amassing illegal aliens composed of disease, gangs, murderers, and muslim terrorist all over the country. When has gathered several million they will be unleashed on the streets causing chaos and blood in the streets. And then the muslims will make their move. And in the destruction Obama will install his beloved muslim brotherhood government in place of ours. Those in government now will be assasinated and then they will come for us. Why you think Obama wants our guns?

    The black flag of jihad is not the every day picnic banner of Muslims (not publicly at least). Millions of believers of Islam in America and this one man thinks he can pass this off as a gesture of Ramadan? We are safe as long as they continue to think they are the smartest in the room…

    Does he not watch TV and seen the flag, i think everyone that is concern in the United States has seen that. I do not believe him. I think he was testing his waters with this to see how far he could push. I would never admit i was a Muslim. That is a bad connection and i am sure he knows that.

  • tonybigs

    Don’t come or live in America to develop a better (fill in the country or ideology). Don’t bring or adopt the crime, corruption and the problems that were the original reasons for leaving (whatever) or staying put in America. Please bring customs, music, food, history, legends and add to the melting pot that is America. If people don’t melt for a united America then America will be basket full of all that which is bad and evil.

  • JAS

    It’s very simple. It is an Arab Muslim trait to smile in your face and lie to you to make you believe other. They do this to save face. In this case, if you don’t realize he is giving nothing but BS of the reason he was flying the flag then you’re an idiot plain and simple. He knew exactly what the flag represents when he purchased it from wherever he got it. He realized he was about to be attacked and he didn’t have the brotherhood of a bunch of fellow Muslims standing behind him to protect his statement flying the flag.

  • Lynne Holt Miller

    Unless he’s been living under a rock for the last 3 or 4 months, he has to know what they are using that flag for, not saying he is using it for that, and not saying that he dose not have the right to fly it, because he dose. That’s what our men and women are fighting for, but I do have to question the wisdom of it, it can only bring him negative attention right now.

  • TR

    If he has no idea what that flag stands for, then he is not Muslim…Caliphate is not religious expression, its aggressive expansion of the Muslim state, to rape and pillage the infidel…If you been watching live footage of what is actually going on in the middle-east…this is a abomination to humanity, As Glenn Beck stated “This is the greatest evil, since the 1930’s”

  • Doris C

    Flying the flag for years? Now is the first time it bothered the neighbors. I think the neighbors better wake up.Maybe this guy is harmless but its a sign of the times that muslims are quiet about radical islam even while they say they dont agree with it. But for a muslim to say he doesnt pay attention to that stuff makes it really hard to believe.No inmam on tv professes to be ignorant of the radicals but they dont yell loud and clearly against it either.

  • Joy

    Ummm, he was also flying the Communist flag??? Did anyone else notice that?

    There is no single Muslim follower in this world who does not believe in the caliphate (sp) because it is what they are directed to do in absolutely every Muslim text that they read, too. The current US Administration supports this as well. We all should fear for our lives every day regardless of where we live.

    • jim

      And you base this assumption that ALL the followers and various denominations of Islam(does that include the mainly pacifist sects of Sufism and dervishes also ?)are hell bent on establishing a caliphate by force of arms on what verifiable and documented sources ?( referring back to medieval times and earlier hardly counts as all 3 main monotheistic religions have all done their fair share of slaughter in the name of god in the past)

      • whosits

        Muslims have been killing people since the 1400’s (or the beginning of time). They would say their morning prayers to Allah, and go and kill the next village. This is truth…they haven’t changed, and anyone who would be stupid enough to join such a so-called religion needs their heads examined. Most of the verses in the Koran are about killing the infidels (anyone who does not believe in their religion)…and guess what? We are the infidels. Watch your back!

        • jim

          Being agnostic-I,d say that is more than a little exaggerated at best and xenophobic at worst to tar 1.4 billion people with the same terrorist brush -but never the less(btw Islam was established in mid 600 ad not the 1400,s)- one could say the same about the Talmud also (full of nasty stuff about it being permissible to kill,rape and cheat Gentiles at will)-and as for advocating violence and genocide the old testament is chock full of that.

          But then again-I personally would put about as much stock in the words of these 3 dusty old Tomes-(The Talmud,Koran and the Old Testament)as I would in a Harry potter novel
          All three major monotheistic religions have done there fair share of violence and have a lot to answer for
          Spirituality should be a personal thing-not something that is at the behest of self serving religious hierarchy,s .

  • bnchy

        Some folks keep lapping up the diversionary bogeyman thats being fed to them-while the global powers that be – rape,plunder and pillage the planet at will- in the meantime
        Islamophobia is nothing more than xenophobia or racism “wrapped up in religious terms

        In short there are significant similarities between Islamophobic discourse and European pre-Nazi antisemitism-the existence of equivalent notions such as “Judaisation/Islamisation”, and metaphors such as “a state within a state” were and are used in relation to both Jews and Muslims. In addition, both discourses make use of, among other rhetorical instruments, “religious imperatives” supposedly “proven” by religious sources, and conspiracy theories.

        Its good old fashioned racism going by another name

  • David A. Schiferl

    Does the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution apply to all citizens regardless of what religious beliefs they adhere too? Or does it apply to Christians only? So if someone displays a flag that says “There is only one God, Jehovah, and Jesus is his son and messenger.” Would it be right for the police to ask them to remove it because it may cause a safety risk to the individual displaying it. In this case, for the safety of Mr. Dunaway, it was prudent of him to remove it after being requested to do so. I think people need to re-read the Constitution and especially the first amendment.

    • Carol Chang

      Are these particular Christians you are referring to killing, raping, beheading, burning and destroying priceless and irreplaceable architecture and relics in addition to engaging in the sex slave trade of women even down to small girls, showing pictures of the flag flying over our nation’s capitol, and threatening to kill everyone who doesn’t convert. If the answer is yes, then it would be appropriate to have the police remove it since it would be advocating the overthrow of government and country and threatening the people with bodily violence unto death.

      • Andrew C Eden-Balfour

        Are Muslims in America doing those things your saying? No? Then your basically doing a false equivalency.

      • whosits

        Carol, you are absolutely right, and I couldn’t have said better myself. Don’t let these religious freedom, muslim supporting, idiots disuade you from the truth. They are just naive enough to believe that Islam is a religion of peace. Yeah, right!

  • fawnday

    Gangs like Isis have made regular Muslims question about if they should fly their flags or not. It’s just like gang colors. One day things are OK and the next day the same thing isn’t good at all. So it’s very possible the guy had no idea Isis take over a regular Islamic flag and turned the reason for flying it completely upside down.

    • whosits

      If you don’t know what the flag is or means, you shouldn’t be flying it, period!

    • jim

      Taqiyya and parts of the Talmud are on the same level!-
      When a Jew has a Gentile in his clutches, another Jew may go to the same Gentile, lend him money and in turn deceive him, so that the Gentile shall be ruined. For the property of a Gentile, according to our law, belongs to no one, and the first Jew that passes has full right to seize it. Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 156

      That the Jewish nation is the only nation selected by God, while all the remaining ones are contemptible and hateful. That all property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which consequently is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples. An orthodox Jew is not bound to observe principles of morality towards people of other tribes. He may act contrary to morality, if profitable to himself or to Jews in general. A Jew may rob a Goy, he may cheat him over a bill, which should not be perceived by him, otherwise the name of God would become dishonoured. Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat, 348

    This man is Caucasian? So likely, he didn’t grow up being Muslim but instead, he voluntarily CONVERTED to Islam (most likely, as an adult).

    An American adult who converts to Islam, especially post-911… hanging this flag for the past 10 years and has no idea of what’s going on in the Middle East, has no idea about this flag…. ? Really? A Chargers flag is now going to dispel logic?

  • Andrew C Eden-Balfour

    For Christ’s sake people; it’s just a flag. Keep in mind that it is a common flag in the Islamic world; the bottom half having the historical seal of Muhammad, and the upper half having the shahada, which translates to “The Testimony.”

  • 4violet2

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I used to fly a flag on my home and at times would alternate optional flags posted lower than while the Red, White and Blue waved but I knew exactly who and what flags were being used, for which holiday and never along with nor above the flag of the U.S.

  • jim

    Geopolitics at its dirtiest-The ISIS is a caliphate project of creating a Sunni Islamist state. It is not a project of the Sunni population of Iraq which historically has been committed to a secular system of government. The caliphate project is a US design. The advances of ISIS forces is intended to garnish broad support within the Sunni population directed against the al-Maliki government

    Through its covert support of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, Washington is overseeing the demise of its own proxy regime in Baghdad. The issue, however, is not “regime change”, nor is the “replacement” of the al-Maliki regime contemplated.

    The division of Iraq along sectarian-ethnic lines has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than 10 years.

    What is envisaged by Washington is the outright suppression of the Baghdad regime and the institutions of the central government, leading to a process of political fracturing and the elimination of Iraq as a country.

    This process of political fracturing in Iraq along sectarian lines will inevitably have an impact on Syria, where the US-NATO sponsored terrorists have in large part been defeated.

    Destabilization and political fragmentation in Syria is also contemplated: Washington’s intent is no longer to pursue the narrow objective of “regime change” in Damascus. What is contemplated is the break up of both Iraq and Syria along sectarian-ethnic lines.

    Can’t help but bring to mind the man that was told he couldn’t fly the American flag on his porch by his gated ‘community association’ so he landscaped his yard as an American flag instead. Don’t remember where that was, but it was news awhile back.

    • whosits

      Yeah, and until this Isis thing happened NO ONE said a word to this Muslim flying a jihadist flag. America wake up!

  • Gary Veach

    I usually do not post comments on articles like this. However, after reading some of the clearly racist and ignorant responses here, I had to add y two cents. Not that it will do any good. It will probably make those who ignorantly make such comments feel better about their comments because someone disagreed. However, here is what I have to say.

    Those who don’t believe that the man had no clue, If he was a jihadist, why would he voluntarily take the flag down? I would think someone who would be willing to die for their religion wouldn’t fear local police.

    Also, to throw such derogatory comments and insults at people cause they don’t believe what you do, shows how immature and uneducated you are. That goes for both sides here. You have let the politicians play you and divide our great country. If you really believe throwing hate out is a way to solve problem, you are so mistaken. It is attitudes like those that are ruining our country. So grow up and let people enjoy the same freedoms that you enjoy. Stop being racist and uneducated. Maybe then our country can get back to being a beacon of hope and prosperity that we have lost.

    Stu ‘s right in the assumption that the guy possibly didn’t know. ISIS is fairly new, at least to our knowledge, and if I really was up for that long without any complaint, then you’d have to give him the benefit of the doubt. I mean he did take it down of his own will so now he understands. There are people who don’t pay attention or watch that kind of stuff (as much as the rest of us think they should).

  • Scott Leger

    One of the tenets of the Muslim teaching is that it is OK to lie if it advances the faith and you are not lying to a fellow believer.

  • whosits

    Maybe, we should add a constitutional amendment that the American Flag cannot be decimated, and it would mean a horrendous fine and possibly jail time if you did. And, other countries flags should only be flown beneath the American flag. If you come to America you should respect our flag and country otherwise don’t come here. Jihadist’s flags should NEVER be allowed to be flown in this country under any circumstance! Can you imagine what would happen to you in other countries if you trampled on their flags? Patriotism is what makes us good Americans. Most people who come here understand this, and they can appreciate our feelings. Muslim Jihadists don’t respect anyone or anything…Isis for instance, and look at all the terrible killings they have done in the name of “Allah”. What a joke. That is no kind of religion…it’s a damn sham!

    AFAIK it is not a terrorist flag. It says “There is no god but God, and Muhammed is his prophet” (the central tenet if Islam) and the seal of Muhammed is in the circle. Terrorists use this flag just as Tea Party members use the “Don’t tread on me” flag — they like it, they fly it, but they didn’t invent it and other people use it too. That said, so many terrorists groups use it that if i were Muslim, I’d find another flag I liked!
