A new video by Hazem Farraj goes into great detail about why the Islamic State chose their flag and it's very interesting.
Farraj explains how this was in fact the flag of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
“ISIS knew exactly what they were doing when they chose this flag,” Farraj says. “ISIS is consciously and intentionally relating all of its behavior – even the the minute things like a flag – to its adoptive religion of Islam.”
“There exists a shocking correlation between Islamic tradition and their beliefs,” he adds.
