Al Jazeera Cartoon Calls Jihadis to Arms

A country invades a nearby nation, rapes its women, murders its children, and tortures its citizens. How do you react? Would you think yourself justified in fighting this evil country?

That is exactly the way many Muslims see us. You would too if your only source of television were al Jazeera.

Take for instance this animated cartoon which is supposeed to be a criticism of Syria. It begins by showing how nobody wants the poor incompetent Syrians. It is even funny for a moment. Of course, it wouldn't be al Jazeera if it didn't end on this frame posted below.
