Young Syrian comedians take aim at Islamic State group

The jihadist emir is busy smoking, drinking and sending ‘selfies’ on WhatsApp, but when a young recruit stops by, the emir quickly takes on the persona of a man of virtue. Strapping a belt packed with explosives around the young man’s waist, the emir promises him trouble-free entry to paradise. “We’ll meet again!” he exclaims before sending him off. For some young Syrians living in Turkey, comedy sketches like this are a way to use humour to fight back against the Islamic State group’s reign of barbaric terror and hypocrisy
