New Jersey Muslim Flying ISIS Flag Says He is a Patriotic American


The media predictably falls for it. I’m not even going to link to the Jessica Remo piece at which is the same “It’s all Islamophobia” spin that we’ve been hearing since September 11.

A New Jersey man has raised a flag that is causing concern among his neighbors.

The man recently hung what some neighbors called an ISIS flag outside his home in Garwood. When a picture was posted onto Twitter, neighbors on Winslow Place called the police.

The flag, which is used by an Islamic extremist group responsible for violence in Iraq, has since been removed from display. Even so, neighbors still wonder why the flag was there to begin with.

The man told that he has flown the flag outside his home during Ramadan and on Fridays for about 10 years.

“I understand now that people turn on CNN and see the flag associated with jihad, but that’s not the intention of that flag at all,” he told the website. The man explained that the writing on the flag reads, “There is only one god, Allah, and the prophet Muhammad is his messenger.”

“It’s not meant to be a symbol of hate. Islam is all about unity and peace. I am not a part of any group like that, and I’m not anti-American. I love my country, but I am a Muslim,” he said.

But of course that’s the message of the Jihad.

Mark Dunaway, the Muslim in question, is flying a flag that does contain the Shahada under the seal of Mohammed. It’s the flag used by ISIS along with a few other Jihadist groups.

There are a variety of “black flags” of Jihad. The black flag is a war flag. The specific choice of war flag indicates identification.

If he’s been flying it for ten years, that would be around the time that ISIS as Al Qaeda in Iraq became prominent during the Iraq War. Though it wasn’t using that flag at the time. Before that the flag was flown by Al-Shabab in Somalia.

The question is does Mark Dunaway, who appears to be a convert to Islam, know what the flag means?

A Facebook page that appears to be his shows that he “liked” Zaid Shakir and Bilal Philips. Both are vile bigots and terrorism supporters. Philips was also named an unindicted conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing.

He also likes Khalid Yassin who called for killing gays and the Wahhabist Abubakar Gumi. Also liked was Abu Mussab Wajdi Akkari and the Islamic Emirate.

These are the sorts of figures you might like if you’re a convert with Islamist sympathies.

It’s hard not to suspect that Dunaway knows exactly what freak flag he’s flying.

Meanwhile the news reports don’t actually bother exploring what the flag means. They simply take his word for it.

    “It’s not meant to be a symbol of hate. Islam is all about unity and peace. I am not a part of any group like that, and I’m not anti-American. I love my country, but I am a Muslim,” he said. Yeah, that’s called taqiya! We’re on to that “religion of peace” thing


    You think the islamofascist pig celebrated the Boston Marathon bombing by waving his Jihad flag?

  • hrwolfe

    Otherwise that would be McCarthyism, oh yea he had a point too.

    • Schrodingers Cat

      He was right about the Communists….

      • JR Kipling

        One thing that Obama cleared up once and for all,and that was the liberals who scoffed and laughed at the idea of a communist conspiracy to take over the country. That debate went on for decades. Few times in history has so much argument been settled so definitely.

  • Altoidian

    Notice the constant defense from murdering muslims; “Islam is all about peace and unity…it’s a religion of peace.” And then you see with your very own eyes what Islam is and does…beheadings, amputations, stonings, murdering and rape of children, using kids as human bombs, mutilation of children…all in the name of their monstrous religion.

    • Schrodingers Cat

      Islam is a degeneracy of violence, abuse, hate, and gore.

    • Bill #2

      While the left is all about how Diversity is wanted by all, here we have a look behind the curtain for a Muslim’s true belief, ‘Islam is all about .. unity [not about diversity of religion, thought, speech or deeds]’. In other words, he is happy for Muslims to benefit from Diversity …. until their numbers are sufficient, and then they will demand Unity – and the Unity under Islam alone.

    • mimi

      Read the histories of Christianity, Judaism. Most religions use physical force, mental coercion. Free yourself of fear, hate – be as you want others to be.

      • Altoidian

        That’s right, Mimi. But, the difference is, almost all the world’s great religions grew out of their murderous phase and realized, God simply does not work that way. Islam is still stuck in the 7th century and is still a blood cult, steeped in cruelty and death.

      • ConradCA

        The Jesus Christ told his faithful to embrace peace. Mohammed told his followers to spread the faith through war.

    • ConradCA

      The big Mo told his followers to spread the faith by the sword of conquest. That the people of the book (Christians and Jews) were to be given a choice of submit or death, others were to be given the choice of enbracing the Muslim faith or death. The peace that they claim is only going to happen when the have conquered the whole world. Furthermore, the “Muslims” who are not terrorists are apostates.

  • Schrodingers Cat

    LOL………and some will actually believe that. it’s the 10th crusade and the child raping jihadist of Islam will bring it to you.

  • Unc Remus

    ….I wonder if the convert has working smoke detectors in his house…

  • Guest

    okay enough of the chit chat. I am in solidarity w my progressive Muslim friends and reach out my hand to those who will become progressive. This is Christs charge to Christians after all. W you and w my Muslim friends I say where is the petition to ban this? I thought ACT was about action? Please supply me w the petition to get this banned like they have in the Netherlands.

    • ConradCA

      Supporting a terrorist organization is a crime.

  • Bryan Ward

    Where is the petition to ban this please?

  • edlancey

    Unity and Peace = Convert or Die

  • Webb

    You fly an airplane into my building, I kill ALL of you. Any questions?

  • JR Kipling

    Of course he is a patriotic American. How does anyone get off thinking otherwise? America is an idea. An idea of tolerance and freedom. It is home to all sorts of cultures and none is better than any else. This ISIS supporter believes that fervently. But more to the point he is only repeating what all of academia and the media say and all the good non racists say. If you cant see how a country can really survive believing that, Then you are joining good company. The Founding Fathers said they were creating a nation to bequeath to “their posterity”. That means the inheritors of their culture and their blood. And they knew no muslims and what they knew about Islam was it was the historical enemy of the Westand a foreign incomprehensible cult that they wanted nothing to do with. So America at least in the founders notion wasnt an idea. It was definite place of a specific language, culture and religion.

    • ConradCA

      How much tolerance do progressive fascists (Dems) have for Nazis and the KKK? ISIL is as bad as the Nazis.

    • Ganesha_akbar

      Best to know where they lurk. Kind of like marking the local pederasts. After all, the local Sunni Islamic Center is overcrowded.

      excitable folk (something about sharia… America… mujahedeen…)

  • ConradCA

    Not much difference between this flag and the Nazi flag.

  • ConradCA

    The big Mo told his followers to spread the faith by the sword of conquest and that is what the have done since 600 AD. The peace that they proclaim will occur once Islam reigns supreme over the whole world.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      That’s the islamic ideal, but funnily enough, the only peaceful islamic states sponsor islamic terrorism and are totalitarian, fascist, islamic theocracies.

      • ConradCA

        Those that don’t follow Mo’s commands are apostates.


          Islam MUST SUBMIT to the US Constitution.

  • EHNJ

    His excuse that it’s just “all about my faith in islam” is naive at best, and a lie at worst.

    The swastika is a Hindu symbol for “fertility, heat, light and warmth”, but flying that flag today would have the media in an uproar.

    This idiot is either completely ignorant of current world events, or has an agenda that deserves special attention from law enforcement.

    • Ganesha_akbar

      He’s (uncontroversially) a taqiya liar… said he’s flown that flag for 10 years? Google map street view 2007 shows Old Glory was flying from a bracket next door at 115; but is (ahem) “relocated” in the posted image. Who’s the landlord?

  • Ganesha_akbar

    The local Sunni Islamic Center hosts Imam Shaaban Elshazly, author of this bizarre lecture Headlessness (in Arabic with English Translation) and this online jihad declaration;

    Defend prophet mohamed, Defend Islam
    (62,804 people have helped this campaign}
    - To defend our religion from violations.
    – To defend our beloved prophet who is the symbol of our religion.
    – To protect our faith against distortion.
    – To show real strength of our nation in our focus and uniting against the enemy.
    – To force anyone to think thousand time before insulting our religion again.

    And then there’s this video of Imam Elshazli Shaaban claiming the local NJ dhimmis’ church for Islam (in Arabic, naturally).

  • IslamDownpressesHumanity

    Islam, re-defining patriotism.

  • Sick and Tired

    The Confederate Flag evokes many different emotions in many different people. For many, it represents gentile Southern heritage. For others, it represents the evil of slavery. The media has a field day with people that wave Confederate flags. Why does muslim scum get a pass? Remember, it’s not Islamophobia when they are trying to kill you.

  • DontMessWithAmerica

    An awful lot of talk, talk, talk, while one little bottle filled with gas could end the whole problem.
