ISIS flag has flown in United Kingdom second time within two months
Monitoring Desk: ISIS flag has flown in United Kingdom second time within two months. According to Guardian Newspaper, ISIS flag is flying at the entrance of an east London housing state near Canary Wharf. This is second instance of flying ISIS flag in United Kingdom. First flag of ISIS was flown in June at a barbecue party in the Welsh.
Guardian reporter Rajeev Syal posted the photo with article and said that flag was planted on top of the gates of the Will Crooks estate on Poplar High Street, and is surrounded by flags of Palestine and slogans.
“The flag bears similar writing to the jihadi flags that have been flown by the extremist group in Iraq and other jihadi groups since the 1990s. When the estate was approached last night, a group of about 20 Asian youths swore at Guardian journalists and told them to leave the area immediately. One youth threatened to smash a camera. When a passerby tried to take a picture of the flag on a phone, one of the gang asked him if he was Jewish. The passerby replied: “Would it make a difference?” The youth said: “Yes, it f@ would.” Asked if the flag was an Isis flag, one local man said: “It is just the flag of Allah.” But another man asked: “So what if it is?”
One local man said that the flag has been there for several days. “People were taking photos of it last night,” he said. A Metropolitan police spokesman said on Thursday that they had received no complaints about offensive flags in the Tower Hamlets area. The Dutch government has banned the public display of the Isis flag, but it is not illegal in the UK.
