Dr. Hassaballa in The Islamic Monthly: The Parodies of ISIS

Thanks be to the Precious Beloved, my article about the many parodies of ISIS in the Muslim media was published in the Islamic Monthly. An excerpt is reprinted below:

It is a persistent perception – which, unfortunately, has become reality – that the larger Muslim community around the globe has not sufficiently condemned or distanced itself from the terror and violence committed in its name.
