"Its interesting to see a Party that claims to be protecting Democracy trying
so hard to get the opposition OFF the Ballot so that Democracy is thwarted.
If you want to see real Election interference ...YOU GOT IT !"

Islamic State group becomes target of Arab satire
Associated Press By VIVIAN SALAMA

BAGHDAD (AP) — The bumbling young militant first drops the rocket
launcher on the toes of his boss before taking aim and firing
toward a military checkpoint outside of an Iraqi town — not
realizing he's fired it backward at his leader.

The "Looney Tunes"-style cartoon targeting the Islamic State group
comes after its militants have swept across large swaths of Syria
and Iraq, declaring their own self-styled caliphate while
conducting mass shootings of their prisoners. The group cheers its
advances and beheadings in slickly produced Internet videos.
In response, television networks across the Middle East have begun
airing cartoons and comedy programs using satire to criticize the
group and its claims of representing Islam. And while not directly
confronting the group's battlefield gains, the shows challenge the
legitimacy of its claims and chip away at the fear some have that
the Islamic militants are unstoppable.
"These people are not a true representation of Islam and so by
mocking them, it is a way to show that we are against them," said
Nabil Assaf, one of the producers and writers of Lebanon's "Ktir
Salbe Show," which has challenged the group. "Of course it's a
sensitive issue, but this is one way to reject extremism and make
it so the people are not afraid."
Satire has long been a force in Arab culture, beginning first with
its ancient poetry. Indirect criticism once cloaked in self-
censorship exploded out into the open during Arab Spring revolts.
Even in the midst of Syria's bloody civil war, the country's
renowned black, satirical humor has continued.
The Islamic State group, born out the Syrian war, now finds itself
challenged in a cultural war after its gains. The top Islamic
authority in Egypt recently began an online campaign asking
journalists not to call the group an "Islamic State." Comedians
have followed suit.
In one skit produced by the "Ktir Salbe Show," a taxi driver picks
up a jihadi who rejects listening to radio because it didn't exist
in the earliest days of Islam, a knock on the Islamic State group's
literal take on the Quran. The driver offers to turn on the air
conditioning, but that too is rejected. The jihadi finally
criticizes him for answering a mobile phone.
Fed up, the driver asks: "Were there taxi cabs in the earliest
"No, 1,000 times no!" the passenger answers. The driver responds by
kicking out the jihadi and telling him to wait for a camel instead.
In Syria, comedic news programs also target the Islamic State
group, with its presenters disguising themselves out of fears of
retaliation. In Iraq, an animated program on state television
depicted a slew of characters on the run from the Iraqi military,
including young Islamic State militants and old Saddam Hussein-era
"We are all against these terrorist organizations," said Alaa al-
Majedi of the state-run al-Iraqiya channel. "Comedy is one way to
raise awareness."

But among those depicted in the cartoon is Saudi Arabia's King
Abdullah, an accusation that the Sunni kingdom supports the Sunni
Islamic State militants, something Saudi officials have denied.
Saudi Arabia backs the rebels fighting to topple Syrian President
Bashar Assad's government.
Even the dark videos of mass shootings conducted by the Islamic
State group have become comedic fodder. Palestinian television
channel al-Falastiniya aired a skit showing two militants shoot
Muslim civilians for their lack of knowledge on the number of times
to kneel during prayers, all the while reminiscing over the
beautiful women and best party neighborhoods they'd visited in
When a Jordanian Christian approaches, the two militants begin
fighting each other over who gets to shoot him — each wanting the
"blessing" for himself. Terrified, the man suffers a fatal heart
attack, leaving the militants devastated.
