The theme song of a sitcom which mocks the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group has gone viral online, after the show premiered Saturday on an Iraqi satellite channel.
“Al-Khorafa State,” or “The Myth State” in English, premiered with a satirical theme song performed by singer Hossam al-Majed.
The song begins with a warning that Satan has arrived and continues on to describe the ISIS’s actions of murder, displacement and sectarianism.
“The egg hatched and an ISIS member is born, give him milk...and weapons and prepare the armies,” the lyrics go.
The song continues: “Oh where are you, you decapitator? We prohibited all pornography except for sexual jihad... We prohibited smoking and displaced all Christians.”
At the end of the first episode, the character of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi kills all the actors and actresses and then blows himself up after realizing that there is no one else to kill.
The show was written by Thaer Ajyad al-Hasanawi and directed by Ali al-Qassem.
