Copenhagen police on Wednesday raided four addresses with ties to a charity suspected of selling stickers to raise funds for the Islamic State.

A 35-year-old stateless man born in Libya, a 30-year-old Danish woman of Lebanese origin and a 50-year old Danish woman were questioned over the sale of stickers that appeared to be a spoof on the yellow ribbons which are traditionally sold to support Danish soldiers stationed overseas.

Two of them were arrested while "the second woman chose to come with (us) to an interrogation," deputy police inspector Jens Moeller Jensen said in a statement.

Police were unable to find any stickers during the raids but confiscated money and "various written material" on collecting donations.

"The stickers in question were colored black. The Danish flag was replaced with what appears to be the flag of the Islamic State, and the text 'Support our soldiers' was replaced with 'Support our ummah'," the Copenhagen police said.

"Ummah" is an Arabic word often translated as "community" or "nation."

Slowly growing in numbers, sneaking into any country in small groups, pretending to want to live freely, then begin overpopulating and abusing their system, kinda like what Iran did with HA in Lebanon.

No offense, but your M8/HA are absolutely no better, where do you think they get their funds? out of the kindness of people? lol, no it's wired welfare funds from Europe and North America, besides narcotics. Hypocrisy at it's finest.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm
not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to
start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

right. This submit actually made my day. You can not
believe simply how so much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
