The Lebanese Ice Bucket Challenge Has Morphed Into Burning Islamic State Flags

 

 

 

 

” Last weekend, several Lebanese activists started a trend which has since gained prominence under the hashtag #BurnISISFlagChallenge or #BurnISIS. The protesters burned an Islamic State flag in retaliation to the presumed beheading of a Lebanese officer, an idea which quickly motivated others to post similar pictures or videos.

  The self-perpetuating campaign follows the model of the well-known #IceBucketChallenge, and has found supporters on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks.

  Although having been praised by some Internet users, the campaign has been strongly criticized by the Lebanese justice minister who even called for “sternest punishments” for those who burned flags of the IS militant group last Saturday. In a statement, Ashraf Rifi declared it was necessary to “bring to justice those individuals who burned the ISIS flag in Sassine Square.” “

” I accept Wasilla Arctic Cat’s #icebucketchallenge to #strikeoutALS and will donate to the Pete Frates #3 Fund. Watch my video to see whom I challenge. Hat tip to actor Patrick Stewart for reminding everyone with his video that the donation is the most important part of the #icebucketchallenge, not the frivolous water-tossing theatrics that those of us who are more thoughtfully serious choose to forgo.
