Here is one of the most popular feel-good #refugeeswelcome cartoons going round the Internets these past few days by the cartoonist John Cole:

john-cole-know-the-enemy

Of course, one not inconsiderable problem is that a disturbingly big percentage of Syrian refugees – some 13% of them, according to a November 2014 poll by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies – say they have a positive view of the Islamic State. Moreover, another 10% are negative towards them but only just to some extent.

So what we have is that almost precisely a quarter of Syrian refugees are either outright positive about ISIS, or have only moderate disagreements with them (they don’t want to get conscripted by them?).

So, informed by these demographic realities, and taking into account the tendency of second generation Muslim immigrations to radicalize, here is my modest suggestion for improving John Cole’s cartoon:

  1. Idea for a cartoon:

    During a press conference a reporter asks Obama if his administration is secretly supporting “that terrorist organisation, ISIS”. In the next frame Obama, now with a Clinton hairdo and waving his forefinger in the Clintonian manner, answers that that depends on what the meaning of IS IS.

  2. Syrian refugees are the perfect biological weapon against fucking european, the white demons.

    If fucking europeans want to get fucking serious, they should boil the syrian alive to prevent future ISIS infestation.

    Anyways, fuck europe.

  3. In light of the Paris attacks, a better second picture would show an established young immigrant with the caption “IS SUSCEPTIBLE.” Of course, the West’s endless foreign interventions just feed this.

    Anyways, fuck europe.

  5. Official data gathered in Europe on the age and sex of the “refugees” shows they correspond to a mixture of two populations – a) one with a high birth rate but half female and with the right number of old people and b) one more than half the size of a), exclusively male, post-pubertal, without any elderly and overwhelmingly under 25. So those who represent the statistically average “refugee” as mommy, daddy and two adorable little tykes are lying propagandists.

    Turkey has closed it’s borders to Syrian refugees. I think this is not enough.

    Turkey should take the refugees, dismember and behead the children, and then fly air sorties over Greece and drop the body parts over the fucking Christians. Imagine the fucking Greek faggots walking around and then waking up one morning to see Syrian body parts of three year old dropping down on them. What a lovely day that would be.

    The white demons need to be reminded of death.

  11. Good cartoon, hits the nail on the head. It’s really depressing how insane Germany is right now…we’ve got 40-50 years of experience with Muslim immigration to Western Europe, and it hasn’t turned out well, and still people refuse to draw the obvious conclusion.

    "we’ve got 40-50 years of experience with Muslim immigration to Western Europe, and it hasn’t turned out well, and still people refuse to draw the obvious conclusion."

    I agree, and that's why I labeled the situation in Europe "insanity" a few months back. But I have to agree with 5371 in message #5 above that the cartoon is soft propaganda, in that it misleads about the nature of the "Syrian refugees" by misrepresenting the composition of the refugee invasion.
