The following video shows a fundraising effort by “Australians” in one of those nice “moderate” mosques. Knowing how popular the ISIS flag is among members of their moderate congregation, they auctioned off an ISIS flag.
Watch the fanatical frenzy that ensues. Its indeed more dangerous than rabies in a dog.

The flag used by the Islamic State terrorist organisation has been auctioned off at a western Sydney mosque before an audience packed with families.Â Footage of the auction was shared among teenagers online, some of whom appear to espouse radical views about the use of violence carried out by IS,
One 15-year-old boy who posted the footage of the sale on Instagram has since shared photos of himself posing in front of Mohammad’s black standard of Jihad with his face covered by an Arabic keffiyeh scarf.
Note the ranting mode of speech common to hate preachers in the UK. Note also the shouts of ‘Allah Akbar’
The mosque claimed the proceeds from the sale were for the mosque’s benefit, claiming the Shahada symbol that features on the flag had been “hijacked” by Islamic extremists.
NSWÂ PREMIER Mike BairdÂ said the Islamic State flag could be banned across NSW.Â “That is something we will consider and work with community groups about but we can’t have the position where you are seeing any activity that is promoting terrorism, supporting terrorism,” Mr Baird said today.Â “There is no way in this state that we are going to support that.Â It is a flag that is used by ISIS, and ultimately that is something we have to respond to and we have to have a zero-tolerance approach,”
(He) warned that it was against the law to provide any financial support for listed terror organisations adding that parents needed to protect young people from “insidious and corrosive effects of the radical ideologies”.Â “I note Islamic State is listed by the Commonwealth government as a terrorist organisation and that it is against the law to provide it with any support,” Mr Baird said.”We expect everyone in NSW to obey the law or face the consequences.”
NSW Police said the sale would be an offence only if the proceeds were forwarded to a terror group.
Asked about the auction,Â Prime Minister Tony AbbottÂ said it was a serious crime under Australian law to work with, fund or fight with terrorist organisations. ‘These are serious offences under Australian law, and where there is evidence that Australian law has been broken it will be dealt with severely,’ he told reporters in Queanbeyan.
Markaz Imam Ahmad (MIA)Â mosque spokesman Mohamed Rima said there was nothing sinister about the public auction. A painting of the flag was also sold at the auction.Â “It was to fundraise to purchase the building that we’re in,” Mr Rima said.Â Mr Rima said the flag has been hijacked by the Islamic State (IS) but was really a symbol of Islam that had existed for centuries.
The Shahada is indeed old. I don’t believe that the ISIS configuration with the white circles on black is, however.
