jihad bells

Is it stretching the bounds of humour?

Humour comes in many forms. Humour is used to defuse situations. And parody is a soft defence against the absurd. In this classic parody, the fake character, Mr. Tawil Fadiha, stars as the Minister for Uncontrollable Rage. He dresses up as Santa Claus and discusses what it is like to be a Christian in a Muslim controlled city like Bethlehem. The song , Jihad Bells, is a humorist creation of the perspective of the Islamic world to the Christian religion. Therefore,  perpetually offended should avoid this parody or lighten up and enjoy it like millions have.

    Not really in very good taste eh? But of course there’s nothing wrong with freedom of speech and none of us have the right not to be offended.
    Anyway those old boys love to party, here’s evidence from London.

    Is it stretching the bounds of humour? No, not if people are well informed and understand the political import. Yes, if they are not.
