Sometimes all you can do is laugh at Islamophobic hate preachers, such as Jay Smith. For those that don’t know the backstory of what happened. One Sunday in the heat of a debate, Jay Smith began going on a rant that he can’t find any pork products left in Harrow (i.e. because of Muslim influence.) Later Jay would backtrack on what he said, claiming that it was just “Hyperbole” and that he was joking. I guess we should take all his words as Hyperbole for now on.
Anyways, so as for the comic I made. Well, I thought about what would’ve happened if Jay Smith really did think there was no more ham in Harrow, and then what would it look like the moment he walks into a Tesco and is reunited with his beloved pork chop. I’m sure it was a very touching and emotional moment indeed.
You can read BloggingTheology.com’s refutation of Jay Smith here:
Ever since the evangelical movement began to reinterpret their Bible and believe that Israel is actually a physical place, instead of the Church of Christ (as Christians had believed for centuries before), we’ve seen nothing but chaos in the Middle East.
There was a time during the so-called “War on Terror,” that it appeared almost anything could be justified to capture or kill a suspected Terrorist. Right Wing Extremists were able to exploit westerners fear for many years to justify some of the most horrendous human rights violations known to man. So one day after listening to yet another new anchor justify the killing of a number of civilians to target a Terrorist, I thought to myself, “If Hitler were alive today, what type of Media Propaganda would he use to justify his mass slaughter of the Jews?” Remember, there were Jews who were fighting back against the Nazis. And of course to the German Government, the Jewish Rebels were also considered “Terrorists.” I wonder if Hitler lived today would he have employed the same “30 civilians or less” rule that the United States hate when targeting terrorists (i.e. that if there are less than 30 civilians that will die in the bombing, that the officer didn’t need to get permission from higher up.)
These comics are made for you to think. That’s all. Please don’t think this in anyway condones Terrorism from Muslim Extremists. I think any murder deserves whatever comes to them. But…. I will never, never justify killing civilians to capture or kill a suspected Terrorist. Never. And neither should the civilized world.
I made this comic to depict the biased nature of the mainstream media when it comes to Islam. Many people don’t know this, but in the United States, Islamic Terrorism only makes up about 10% of attacks, while the rest consist of Right Wing and Anarchist movements. But when you look at the coverage, Islamic Terrorism is covered far more than any other criminal group. It appears that these Media outlets love to cover Islamic Terrorism so much that it’s reached the level of an unhealthy addiction. And sadly, many of these so-called News organizations are run by Right Wing Evangelical Extremists who are die-hard Zionists. So there’s also an ulterior motive involved in covering constantly Islamic Terrorism to create a narrative that Muslims are inherently violent.
This comic was made to make the viewer think. People in the West tend to view conventional weapons of war as a somewhat cleaner and more civilized way of killing. But that isn’t how the families of their bombs and missiles feel. Their mothers, daughters and sons cry just the same, be it from the suicide bomber or an F16 or Drone.
This is a comic I drew a few years back presenting a type of Metaphor of how Israel seems to never been satisfied with what they have. The Waiter as you can see has a UN band around his arm and is coming to pick up the plate which appears to be finished. But of course, as we see with Israel today, the dinner seems not to be quite finished yet. We can imagine the waiter coming back and forth a few times in hopes that the man will be finally finished. As we see today. But sadly, the bloated dinner which is Israel never seems to be satisfied. Check please.
This was a comic strip I made back in May of 2014 when Michael Obama released a photo with the Hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, referring to the poor girls who were kidnapped by Bokoharam. Now even though I do sympathize with those girls, I couldn’t help but feel that the conversation in the Western Media always seemed one sided. That crimes only mattered when it was Christian girls being oppressed by Criminals who just so happen to be Muslim. So in response to this I made a comic in hopes to shed light on the plight of Muslims worldwide.
This comic was shared by many people including Shaykh Yasir Qadhi.
