Someone Dared to Make Fun of These Murderous Islamic Terrorists
It’s all fun and games until someone gets beheaded
Some very funny—and perhaps very reckless—Palestinians have shot a video parodying the ultra-violent militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
The comedy short portrays a couple of dimwitted ISIS fighters at a checkpoint. They quiz travelers on on Islamic trivia such as the hadith or the sayings of the Prophet Muhammed.
“How many times does the letter ‘a’ appear in the Al Bukhari hadith compilation?” an ISIS gunman asks.
“Um … just shoot me,” a traveler responds.
“Okay, let’s shoot him,” the gunman says.
Next, two ISIS fighters argue over who gets to shoot a Jordanian Christian who tries to pass their checkpoint.
“Killing this guy will get me blessed,” one fighter points out.
“I barely shot two today,” his buddy replies. “You got 20 blessings for four.”
So maybe it’s not exactly side-splitting. You try to come up with better jokes about crazy militants who behead and crucify their opponents.
The video comes from the Palestinian comic series Watan ala Watar, according to Steve Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, which posted the video and added the subtitles.
You can find the Watan ala Water Youtube channel here. The show used to be on Palestinian Authority TV, until its creators made the mistake of criticizing PA leaders. They also parodied Hamas—also not the safest move.
In the end, the Palestinian comedians manage a jibe at their real foes. The short’s ISIS fighters shoot every Arab who appears at their checkpoint before finally letting a civilian pass. He’s an Israeli.
