The comedians mocking ISIS from inside Syria and Iraq

 so-called Islamic State (IS) has used social media to draw in recruits and spread its militant message, but what happens when satirists fight back?

A group of Iraqi and Syrian comedians, some of whom live in areas controlled by ISIS, are mocking the extremists online. In one skit, the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi appears as the animated star of the "Bigh Daddy Show".
One of the comedians talked to BBC Trending about the group's aims.They are taking some pretty big risks and are surely on the ISIS hit list by now. Perhaps they were encouraged by the bravery of the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo of Paris who stood their ground against Muslim extremists.
Wherever your courage is coming from, the world applauds you. Stay strong, you have friends. Eventually evil consumes itself.


  1. This is so true and I hope they are very careful and know who they let in their tight little group .
    More power to them for taking a stand .
    The good always over power the evil .
    Good video
    Love PIC

  2. I admire these people so much. The writers, artists and comedians of the world have as much courage as the soldiers, perhaps even more. They stand out more and make themselves targets. But they are fighting with words and pictures instead of guns and they are belittling and ridiculing ISIS. I think that hurts ISIS more than a few missiles.
    I just hope they are able to stay alive.
    Hope you are well my dear
    Love you, PIC
