The Singing Gnomes of the Islamic State

The Singing Gnomes
the Islamic State

The translator of this musical propaganda video in French says the singing of the Islamic State Butchershop Quartet sounds like the Vienna Girls Choir to her. But I’m convinced that it’s actually a chorus of garden gnomes who have switched their principal occupation from fishing to jihad.

VladTepes watermarked the video with one of those falsetto soprano homunculi, Mehmet bin Mohammed. Watch the top left corner, and you’ll see him. His cousin Mahmoud the Gnomon from Oman is at the top of this post.


Many thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation and annotation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling and additional annotation:

The dilemma is always: do we make IS propaganda more available or do we ignore it and hope it goes away. 
Our governments are taking the latter approach with the consequence that jihadis now control oil rich areas larger than many European countries while most in the West still think islam is the religion of peace. 
So our choice has been to make sure as many people as possible can see what these people think, and that generally speaking they can source all of their claims and actions to authentic islamic scriptures.

But now, after this nasty and ugly  slush, lets quickly have some beauty: Daniel Barenboim conducts Beethoven.
