Daish by saint-max Daish by saint-max
Greetings friends and followers.

I wanted to put down this idea on paper for some times now, and finally I got the will to do so. This is a couple of hours work, a "what if" comic cover for Dā'ish. If you can read Arabic then you got the message. If not, then all that you need to know is that Dā'ish is the Arabic short for The "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant", an active militia descendant from Al-Qaeda, plays now a big part in the civil war happening in my hometown Syria.
So yeah, just thought that it would be cool if they got a comic to tell the stories of their horrors, a series, maybe a game. anyway enjoy :D

you want to read more?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_…


Cheers,

P.S: I didn't give the logo much thought, so I might come back to it and update it.

Agreed. Even with non-terrorist-like people or nations, "Freedom of speech" is only such a specific thing.

Nice work. It will probably take Saddam's Republican Guard to beat these guys, our current military is untrained.

If the I.S is destroyed then they will create something else to keep the war going.

is it okay if I use your picture of Daish 1 and/or 2 on a public wiki site, to describe the brutal image of ISIS? There is a section explaining ISIS and I would like to attach a picture to that site. BTW, I live in U.S.

nothing of making profit or anything like that. I just want to attach pictures of yours. But to do so I need your approval.

Really good! That really describes them well. I heard that they are so brutal that even Al-Qaeda didn't want to have anything to do with them.

And what is funny is that most of their soldiers don't speak Arabic, so you got a brainwashed men with no way to communicate with them...
They actually when and did a big massicar in one of the villages to later on discover that it was on their side...

LOL because most are Chechen or Bengali or others. I don't consider them soldiers. they are just bloodthirsty killers attacking anyone in that war.

Well....if you made a comic to 'fight' against them, wouldn't that make you a target for retribution?

I'm all for activism, but you have to weigh the costs and what you're willing to lose if you get in too deep.

I wont dare to do such a thing if I am still back in Damascus :S   but I left Syria 13 years ago and tbh I am not planning to go back. But honestly I wont be surprised if they placed a bounty on my head if I actually continued working on this idea :P  .... damn what a crazy world we are living in.  Thanks a lot my friend, truly appreciate the gesture ;)

The problem with freedom of speech is there will always be a nutcase willing to silence it.
