I believe you are referring to the Screenshot of Dan Armak's set-up. Dan happens to live in Israel and is presumably an Israeli - he is also the guy in charge of KDE for Gentoo. Whether or not he's proud of his country is his decision. A lot of people would disagree with the US on it's policy to Iraq (nearly everyone except the UK government in fact) but I wouldn't suggest that Americans not show their flag if they wanted too. Americans are proud of their country (they have a lot to be proud of) and presumably Dan feels the same about his...whether you agree with him or not.

I seriously doubt that Gentoo was making a political statement about the Middle East by using the screenshot. I wasn't offended by it and I don't agree with much of what the Israeli government does either.
