How to resist the Islamic State? Try comedy sketches » Mideast Islamic State Satire
In this image made from an undated cartoon broadcast on state-run al-Iraqiya TV in Iraq, a cartoon character portrayed as a member or a supporter of the Islamic State group sings a song. Television networks across the Middle East have begun airing cartoons and comedy programs using satire to criticize the group and its claim of representing Islam. And while not directly confronting their battlefield gains, the shows challenge the legitimacy of the Islamic group and chips away at the fear some have that they are unstoppable. The Arabic writing on the flag reads, “One Arab nation,” top, and “Having an eternal message.” “ISIS” on the cartoon character’s head cover is the outdated acronym of the group. (AP Photo/al-Iraqiya)
