Good grief

  

  Grief-shaming is the latest social media trend, after Facebook made it easy for users to change their profile pics to be tricoloured in sympathy with the 140 murdered victims of the Islamic State’s  terrorist attacks in Paris.

Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here – this is the War Room

Petraeus genius

A little doodle in response to the controversial idea of the former CIA director, it is explained in more detail on CNN but still seems more than a little ‘wacky’, to say the least.

The sound of silence

Quick doodle I’ve done about Russell Brand condemning the minute of silence in memory of the Islamic State sanctioned murder of British tourists in Tunisia..

I did another version a little later:

Saudi Arabia and the West side by side against #ISIS

When it comes to ISIS, Saudi Arabia and the West are side by side.

When it comes to ISIS, Saudi Arabia and the West are side by side.

From what I can tell it goes like this: The majority of terrorists in the 9/11 attacks were Saudi Arabian, Osama Bin Laden of course was from a wealthy Saudi family with ties to the ruling Royalty and it is alleged that there was some assistance from some elements within the Saudi government in 9/11 – see 28pages.org for more on this.

Because of this terrorist attack, Iraq was invaded, leading to the formation of ISIS. Saudi individuals have been responsible for funding ISIS. But Saudi Arabia is officially allied with ‘The West’ against them, in spite of spending billions and billions in promoting its hard line Wahhabist interpretation of Islam which is said to be integral in the spread of extremism.

Everything clear? Good.

This analysis of the punishments meted out by ISIS and Saudi Arabia for ‘crimes’ such as blasphemy and homosexuality is telling.
