ISIS Merchandise Now for Sale Online

As ISIS leads an insurgency in Iraq, it’s also selling apparel that features the group’s logo in an effort to attract international support.T-shirts, hoodies, and other apparel featuring the group’s jihadist logo are now available online, as well as in Istanbul shops.

The clothing line even offers a range of designs and styles. One shirt displays the group’s name bordered by automatic weapons and a map of the world, suggesting its international aspirations. Another displays the phrase: “Mujahideen Around the World, United We Stand,” accompanied by an image of men dressed in Middle Eastern clothing and carrying weapons. 

The t-shirts are sold on Indonesia-based websites, and cost between $7 and $13, according to the International Business Times. One of the sites also sells action figures of ISIS terrorists. 

The group had already demonstrated its social-media savvy with its use of Twitter to spread its propaganda. Now, it’s using websites and Facebook pages to promote its merchandise. Some of the Facebook pages have since been taken down, as the social media site told Fox News, “We have rules that bar direct statements of hate, attacks on private individuals and groups, and the promotion of terrorism.”
