A nun in east London climbed to the top of a local building and ripped down a flag similar to the one flown by Jihadist militants in Syria and Iraq.
IB Times reported Friday that the flag was being flown alongside Palestinian flags and slogans in support of Gaza.
Community members issued complaints over the flag with local council members, claiming that it was causing tension within the community.
When council members went to take the flag down, they were surprised to find, someone had beat them to it.
The council can confirm that following reports this morning of a flag erected on the Will Crooks Estate, council officials took steps to remove it but found it had already been taken down by Sister Christine Frost, a well-known local activist and promoter of community cohesion, a council spokesman said.
A reporter for The Guardian was confronted by around 20 Asian youths when he tried to take photos of the flag. When the reporter asked if it was a in fact an ISIL flag, one man responded, It is just the flag of Allah, while another said, so what if it is?
The militant group has continued to issue threats of jihadist expansion. In a documentary for Vice News, one member of the group told a reporter that ISIL would raise the flag of Allah in the White House.

So....they want to raise the ISIL flag at the White house. Have they asked Obama yet?
They won’t be asking Obama, they will be ordering him to do it, in the name of Islam. They know who he really supports, therefore any sign of ISIS being fearful has not yet been seen.
Prepare to be arrested for being racist in the fascist anti-Christian Orwellian hell that is modern Britain
Captain Von Trapp must have been out of town.
Council Estate means gubmint housing.
God Bless you Sister! We have a huge task ahead but good will triumph over evil. It’s in the Scriptures.......Keep the faith! The Great OZ has spoken.
God Bless that nun!
What's Obama got to do with permission to do things at the White House?
Islamaphobe nut job Christofacist bigot. Let’s see how she enjoys being brought up on a hate crime.
/stuff you will likely read on HuffPo
I wonder how long before the “Asian yoots” (AKA Middle Easterner Mohammadan fascist thugs) cause harm to the sister.
That’s a flag that needs some gasoline an a couple of guys dressed like Hollywood elite kicking it around.
That’s pissing off liberals and ISIS at the same time.
A no lose situation
That nun has more courage and good sense than most in the Church.
Doubt that will happen.
I work with teens and young adults in Carson, CA. The Carmelite’s run the school at the parish. If anyone were to try and hurt one of the nuns, there would be hell to pay. I see fire in the belly of these young men and women and have great hope.
Dear Heavnly Father, please watch over the good Sister who stood her ground against the barbarians at the gate.
I love this woman for doing that.
As someone said: a nun is the best man in Britain, Cromwell must be rolling in his grave!
