A man in New Jersey was flying an ISIS terrorist flag on the front of his home in Garwood, NJ. A passerby noticed the flag and took a picture of it and then tweeted it out. When neighbors became aware of what it was the notified the police.
The flag represents the most horrific terrorist group we’ve ever seen and is responsible for beheading thousands of people across the middle east. The flag has since been removed after 3 weeks of flying on his home, but neighbors are curious to why the man has the flag to begin with.
The man told NJ.com that the flag is about “peace” and” unity”. However, that statement is the farthest thing from the truth. Here’s what he had to say:

“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,” [/quote_box_left]
The man says he’s hesitant to fly the flag now because of all the controversy.
“I would love to fly it again on Friday. I hope this situation goes away,” he said.
