    soldiers waving their constitutions and dollar bills around when they "acheive a victory" of some sort of politcal gain or physical destruction, which I do believe was what the original poster was commenting on. These militant Muslims, whether they be Hamas or others, do.

      The original poster stated the Saudi Arabian flag was the same as that of Hamas.  That was incorrect.  He then proceeded to call it the 'flag of Islamic fundamentalism'.  Also incorrect.

      If you're going to refer to the OP, at least have the presence of mind to read his post first.

        The flags are exactly the same except for the sword. The flags both have the same Islamic fundamentalist quote on them. The act of having the quote on a flag is statist support of a religion, and you would be obtuse not to think that they use the religion in their statism.

        Let's take a look at the Saudi flag.

        It's green (the color of Islam)

        It has the legend "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad (PBUH) is his prophet"

        It is a national flag.

        There you go.  The flag in question is the flag of state-run Sunni Islam.  That's why Hamas used either it or something that was eerily similar.

        And I'm not anti-Muslim, for the troll-raters.  I have many Muslim friends.  But until we address Saudi Arabia, we'll never have peace in the Middle East.
