Genius Idea: Hire Daash to Redecorate

1-2-3—Blasphemy! Just a smidge off the top.We could give this week’s Genius Idea to the marketing team of Starbucks and their racial version of New Coke, but instead, we’re all about Spring cleaning and reorganizing, and for that we’ll turn it over to the Feng shui masters of Daash.

While two American twenty-somethings are scheduled to appear before an Italian court for carving a three inch J & N into a wall of the Colosseum, Daash has decided that their role in bringing back the Grand Mufti is to redesign all of the tourist traps of the Middle East today, and then those of Europe and America tomorrow.


With bulldozers, hammers, or just good old elbow grease, if it’s a few thousand years old and of historical importance, it’s got to go.

There ya go!

“We have warned before and we warn again that those gangs and their sick Takfiri ideology will continue to destroy and steal artifacts as long as there is no strong deterrent," the Iraq Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities reiterated earlier this month.

Daash, masters of the DIY.

Daash has redecorated Mosul, home to muslin fabric (a summertime staple for centuries), reworking most of the exhibits at the Mosul Museum.

Not a fan of coffee table books, or really any books for that matter, Daash also made it a point to burn thousands of titles in the Mosul Library.

The 11th Century is back and big this season.

Speaking of books, before they finished leaving their decorative mark on Mosul, Daash also decided that Jonah’s Tomb (yes, that Jonah, the one that did time in a whale) would look better if leveled.


The visionaries of the group went with a machine gun motif for the ruins in Hatra (making things extra ruiny), while others went over Nimrud (yes, named after that Nimrod) with sledgehammers, a move Cambodia Kerry called, “Depraved.”

"These depraved acts are an assault on the heritage of the Iraqi and Syrian people by an organization with a bankrupt and toxic ideology."

Daash seeking sponsorship from both Home Depot (they love the sharia orange) and Lowes (for their great return policy).

Hmmm….Mr. Secretary, what ideology would that be? Can you say or is the Obama Administration still playing their tired game of jihadi charades?

Enjoy your weekend and if you have anything in your town of “historical importance” you might want to pay it a visit while you still can.

    Isn't this similar to what happened in Egypt during the "first" revolution? Where they went into the museum and started smashing stuff? Wasn't that the Muslim Brotherhood behind that at the time? Is there a link between the two or is just the "Takfiri" ideology?

    OMG! It seems to be horrible, what the fuck these guys are doing with the items in the museum. I don’t know who allow them to do things like hand; you should raise our voice through writing service and through processions. It seems to be some kind of tricks that they guys are playing for whickering the Muslims.
