Our cartoonist, Asher (no last name, for his own safety), drew an amusing cartoon today. It was titled, “An ISIS and Hamas Terrorist Walk Into a Bar…”.
The cartoon (below) had the two terrorists discussing their preferred terror techniques, via some clever wordplay.
What we weren’t expecting was all the Muslim hate mail and comments – dozens of them – which had us rolling on the floor, laughing our heads off. But that might be a bad choice of words.
When President Obama talked about ISIS having nothing to do with Islam, I can guarantee you that his message definitely didn’t reach our Muslim readers.
A normal person gets upset that ISIS terrorists behead people, and that Hamas terrorists dig terror tunnels to steal dead bodies (to say the least).
But No. Our Muslim readers are all upset that we had the ISIS and Hamas cartoon terrorists (who President Obama said don’t represent Islam) sitting in a bar drinking alcohol.
And yes, to make that absolutely clear, our Islamic terrorists in the cartoon are drinking alcohol. The ISIS terrorist is having a Cosmopolitan, and the Hamas terrorist is drinking a Zombie.
We initially thought to tell Asher to go into hiding after drawing today’s cartoon, and we even sent him Salman Rushdie’s secret address, but we remembered that after a Hamas rocket blew out all the windows in Asher’s apartment – a month before he even drew the Islamic terrorists drinking alcohol – Asher had a few credits coming his way, since they attacked him first (well, they always attack first, so maybe we don’t have much of a case).
But getting back to the subject at hand… what upset all our Muslim readers about a cartoon of 2 terrorists, is that they are drinking alcohol. Because that is the worse thing in the world two cartoon terrorists could be doing.
It’s like our Muslim readers don’t even care about the ham sandwiches that both our cartoon Islamic terrorists ordered when they sat down at the bar.
