(EuroNews) Could jokes be as effective as bombs and bullets when fighting ISIS? Following its rise to power in large swathes of Iraq and Syria, a flurry of satirical video skits, pictures and tweets have been poking fun at the Jihadi group.
A recent parody of ISIS, shot in Gaza in the end of February, mixes a mock execution and #thedress, the viral phenomenon of a white/gold or black/blue dress which has recently taken the Internet by storm. It ridicules the group’s ultra-rigorous interpretation of religious texts and its fickleness. The video itself has gone viral as well, with almost 780 shares and 1600 likes.
