North Korea Nuclear Threats Draw Arab Laughs

North Korea's threats to attack US military bases, including those on the American mainland, drew laughs from a number of Arab netizens.

Palestinian Ola Anan tweets [ar]:

تعليق بابا على تهديدات كوريا: أيوة بقى خليهم يتلهوا في بعضهم شوية ويحلّوا عنا

@olanan: My father's reactions to [North] Korea's threats: “Yes, let them get preoccupied with each other and leave us in peace.”

Syrian The 47th jokes:

@THE_47th: If this North Korean nuclear threat to US happened when Bush was president, he would have already ordered an attack on Cambodia. #GodBless

 Hesham Mansour shares <a href="https://twitter.com/Heshoz/status/319733231656267777">this picture</a> showing the Emir of Qatar cheering on the on-going war of words between North Korea and the US.


SATIRE: @Heshoz shares this picture showing the Emir of Qatar cheering on the on-going war of words between North Korea and the US.

While Lebanese Liliane A. notes:

@FunkyOzzi: The way I see it, #NorthKorea is the baby that lacks affection and just needs a hug.

Hadi Alabdullah, from Homs, Syria, adds [ar]:

منقول: الائتلاف الوطني السوري يدرس قرار تزويد الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية بأسلحة غير فتاكة وتقديم الدعم اللوجستي لها في حربها ضد كوريا :)

@HadiAlabdullah: The Syrian National Coalition studies a decision to provide the US with non-lethal weapons and logistical aid in its war against North Korea

Egyptian Ibrahim Elgarhi takes the opportunity to poke fun at his country's own president saying:

كوريا الشمالية تصدق رسميا على ضرب امريكا بالنووي.. وبكدة يبقى جونج تاني اعبط رئيس في العالم


@Ibrahim_Elgarhi:
North Korea approves Nuclear attack on US and thus makes Kim Jong-un the second most stupid president in the world

Hesham Mansour shares this picture showing the Emir of Qatar cheering on the on-going war of words between North Korea and the US. Qatar, the home of Al Jazeera television, has played a role in supporting many Arab Spring revolutions, even sending forces to Libya.

And on Brother Please, a Facebook page, contributors shared hilarious pictures and memes of North Korea's threat against the US.

Here's one of them:
