Comic Strip: Ikhras, Kim Kardashian and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad

By Ray Hanania

Kim Kardashian, the HUGE Reality TV star, has come out swinging for Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad and defending his government against the Syrian Rebels, claiming that the rebels are killing Armenians in Kesab (Kessab) near the Syrian border with Turkey, where 100 years ago, Armenians were massacred by the Ottomans. Thabet and Qassem of Ikhras have really gotten excited about that in this latest edition of “IkhrAss: The Comic Strip” from Ray Hanania.
