Islamic State Goes Costa Coffee in ‘Posh Holiday Resort’.

with 8 comments

The ‘Brief Guide to the Islamic State’ talks the about cosmopolitanism and ethnic diversity of the region that runs counter to the group’s medieval interpretation of Islam and the Islamic State militants’ destruction of ancient historical sites and images of mass killings it releases almost daily.

“If you were worried about leaving behind your local Costa coffee, then you will be happy to know that the Caliphate services some of the best lattes and cappuccinos around”, the guide reads. “The Caliphate offers an exquisite Mediterranean climate that has all the makings of a plush holiday resort.”

The guide states at one point that in terms of transport “everything is on the table: zeppelins, hovercrafts, trams, microlites”.

“Twix, Kinder Surprise, Cadburys – yes, yes we have it all”.

Channel Four.

Apparently the weather is great as well.

This does not look so appealing:

  1. Wasn’t there something somewhere about the people guiding young British Muslims there also saying ‘you’ll still be able to get cadbury’s chocolate’ as part of the lure? (Along with the free babes of course.)

    At moments like these I think of the great satire ‘Monkey Dust’.

  2. And who dares assert that at root Islamism is a derivative culture copying the ‘West’!

  3. That last paragraph reads a bit like a pissed-off American’s comment on Trip Advisor after they didn’t get the standard of latte and cappuccino they were expecting and decided to diss the cheap b&b hovel they were staying in with a 1-star rating.

  4. ‘demolish your statues, erase your history’ and replace them with TwixWorld

  5. Sideways and WTF: ‘The Islamic Sex Cult Supporting Turkey’s Prime Minister’

    “Followers of Harun Yahya wear drag make-up and practice a “sexed-up, Disney version of Islam” that helps promote conservative Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s vision of a modern, Muslim Turkey. Step inside this surreal world where religious piety meets psychedelic softcore porn, led by the world’s foremost Islamic creationist.”

  7. I hope none of the denizens of the Islamic State are tempted to cast aside their veils and burkas to sunbathe, or the men to take off their jellibiyas or expose their shins. Those are capital offenses in sharia. That Turkish cult has penetrated as far as NOrth London, I had a row with a fellow running a bookstall a couple of years ago. A near neighbour who is Turkish took his part which was disappointing as she has lived her over thirty years, but, I guess that’s nationalism for you.

  8. Could replace the Costa Brava as the destination of choice of crims. Costa Sharia, has a nice ring to it.
