T-shirts, hoodies and dolls emblazoned with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) logo have begun appearing on online retail shops run from Indonesia, as well as on the Facebook pages operated by the retailers.

The New York Post described one shirt as showing radicalized fighters with AK-47s as action-movie heroes, next to the slogan: “Mujahideen Around the World/United We Stand.”

One retailer, Zirah Moslem, said on his website that his shop is furthering the “Islamic Style Movement,” by offering for sale clothing items that advance the causes of Hamas and the Taliban. Some of his T-shirts, for example, tout the slogan: “We declare war. Fight Against Zionists.”

The same retailer offers a selection of what he says are ISIS T-shirts — Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — that show pictures of Kalashnikov rifles along with a map of the world. The images are aimed at showcasing the terrorist group’s plan to dominate the world, the Post reported.

Different Indonesia-based retailers re offering what they call Kavkaz Struggle Wear, with T-shirts that have the slogan “I Love Jihad” in both Arabic and English.

Facebook terminated the advertisements after the Post brought them to attention.
