A Marvel story about Syrian war could be just as dishonest about Islamofascism as the rest of their output

Inverse reports that Marvel and ABC, both owned by Disney today, are collaborating on a book about the Syrian war:
Marvel and ABC have teamed up to bring the story of one Syrian woman’s struggles to life.

Madaya Mom is a visual comic based on a series of text messages between ABC News and an unnamed Syrian woman earlier this year. The woman lives in Madaya, a town that is trapped between government forces, rebels and ISIL. The Syrian government has systematically starved residents to try and get them to surrender their land. There’s no food, no electricity and, for many residents (including Madaya Mom), waning hope.
And probably no honesty about what drives any of the jihadism in Syria either. Sure, the "government" of Syria is a very evil lot, but so too are ISIL, who employ a lot of the same torture tactics as the government itself. Doesn't the Islamic State's own evil matter? The horrors they've committed have taken the lives of thousands, yet from the info Marvel and ABC have given, it sounds awfully like they're only interested in one of the sides, not both. Don't be surprised if this turns out to be as dishonest and badly informed as the other products they're putting out now that whitewash serious subjects.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
