As reported by CNN, Iraqi TV is airing a popular black comedy these days parodying life under the so-called Islamic State (IS) rule. Among several characters portraying IS' tyrannical rule and barbaric behaviour against minority communities and Western hostages, featuring in it, of course, is a man brandishing a blood-soaked sword. Interestingly, there is also a cowboy representing the US, accompanied by Satan and a woman - purported to be a former wife of the Amir of Qatar - wearing a Star of David pendant. The director is convinced that America, with support from Qatar, brought Satan and Israel together to give birth to IS. Missing from this drama imitating life though are two important characters, namely Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Approval of Russia's South Stream pipeline would send a message to Ukraine that the European Union is not ready to support its ambitions to lean toward the West and does not see it as a reliable gas transporter, the head of Slovakia's pipeline operator said.
As the new academic term began in Egypt, riot police were standing guard at Cairo's universities to quash any repeat of Islamist-led protests that turned campuses nation-wide into battlefields. The authorities have tightened security at leading universities across the country - the last bastions of protests backing ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi after a nation-wide government crackdown crushed his supporters, leaving hundreds dead and thousands jailed.
