ISIS to Burn Heretics in Public

‘Beheading is too merciful,’ says ISIS’ Jihad John

IRAQ — In their effort to return the world to the 14th century — guns and You Tube excepted — ISIS will begin publicly burning heretics at the stake. Local people will be required to watch and cheer. A lack of enthusiasm will mean instantly being thrown into the flames too.

Michael was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites. After several exciting escapes, he was forced to flee the country in disguise. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dual career of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhem wherever he went. Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and faintly subtly edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, but it's going to take a new generation to acknowledge it. Check out his website, Editorial and Political Cartoons.
