An upcoming new Iraqi
television show will tell its own version of the story of Islamic
State's rise to power. In the trailer for the satirical show, posted
online by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the radical
Islamist organization's leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, mockingly referred
to as the "ISIS-ling," comes into the world hatching from an egg laid as
a result from the union of a pitchfork-wielding devil and a Jewish
woman wearing a large Star of David necklace.
The show is called "The Superstitious State," which, according to
MEMRI, is a play on the words "khilafa" ("caliphate") and "khirafa"
