With the new law allowing women to drive in Saudi Arabia (set to take effect in June, 2018), will the Saudi Kingdom finally let women hold phallic fruits and vegetables (yep, that’s not allowed, either)? On this week’s episode of The Mideast Beast Podcast, hosts Molly Livingstone and Alex Giles discuss the many no-nos in Saudi society, extreme religious nutters all over the world, and if this is really a step forward or two steps back.

“Hashtag Snowflakes”. New TMB Podcast!

On this episode of The Mideast Beast Podcast, conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro calls the new wave of anarchists, known as Antifa, just a bunch of #snowflakes. And while it may not be a natural disaster, it will naturally be a disaster when the commentator comes to UC Berkeley’s campus to speak on September 14th. The school is offering free counseling, but will that be enough when it comes to free speech in today’s political climate? Hosts Molly Livingstone and...

‘If I Can’t Watch Incest Porn on 9/11, the Terrorists Have Won,’ Cruz Says

‘If I Can’t Watch Incest Porn on 9/11, the Terrorists Have Won,’ Cruz Says

Defending his decision to ‘like’ a pornographic post on Twitter Monday, US senator Ted Cruz insisted his action was proof that he would not let terrorism stop him from living his life. “Our nation’s founders risked their lives for our right to live in freedom, to establish our own government, and to stream video of a good-looking young man having a threesome with his girlfriend and her attractive middle-aged stepmom on our lunch break,” Cruz told The Mideast Beast. “If...

Trump Attempts to Put The Mideast Beast out of Business

Trump Attempts to Put The Mideast Beast out of Business

The Mideast Beast is announcing several cutbacks following the continued buffoonery of President Donald Trump. Although the President has condemned the publication as “fake, maybe even the fakest news”, it was not his censure, but his actions, which have led to the dramatic restructuring at The Mideast Beast. Senior Researcher at the Washington Institute of Funny Shit on the Internet, Dr. Fanny Josiah, stated in a research report that The Mideast Beast has got off lightly, as satirists worldwide have...

From an online raging twitter battle to the red carpets of Hollywood, check out this week’s Mideast Beast Podcast with David Abitbol, a Jewish blogger whose tweets went from fighting with Megan Phelps-Roper, the granddaughter of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, to real life friendship and now the big screen.

Al Qaeda Leader Blasts ISIS in New Memoir

Al Qaeda Leader Blasts ISIS in New Memoir

Saying that Islamic State caused “lasting damage” to the global jihadi movement, al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has unloaded on his ISIS counterparts in a new memoir. “Everything that we did, ISIS just kept trying to one-up us,” Zawahiri complains in the book. “We proposed declaring a caliphate once we unite the lands of Islam, and they said ‘Well, we’ll declare it immediately.’ We proposed killing all the Jews and Christians, and they said, ‘We’ll kill the Shiites too.’” ISIS’s...

ISIS Leader to Pose in Swimsuit for Vogue Magazine

In a photo shoot that supporters of the ISIS leader have called inspirational, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will appear on the cover of Vogue magazine wearing only a tight black speedo and hot pink bikini. “I’m still alive and I am beautiful!” the Caliph wrote in a Tweet accompanying the picture, which showed him in stunning two-piece. The spread won immediate support from Baghdadi’s allies on the American left. “This photo shoot of @AlBaghdadi in the October issue of...

ISIS Postpones Armageddon Until After Game of Thrones Finale

Saying it would be unfair to expect his warriors to sacrifice their lives for Islam before finding out if Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen actually get it on, ISIS spokesman Ahmed al-Lannister announced that the terror group will put off its apocalyptic battle with western infidels until after the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones” concludes. “While the forces of the faithful are eager to martyr themselves to defeat the unbelievers, they cannot enter the kingdom of Allah without first...

Iranian State TV: Actually, We’re Lit AF On Air

A spokesman for Iranian state television has confirmed that its presenters are buzzed pretty much all the time. “It’s pretty much the only way they can get through a show without breaking down. To be fair how do you think you would cope if each night you had to lead with stories on how terrible the great Satan is and their lap dog the little Satan. And you can’t keep straight whether the little Satan is Israel this week or...

Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Ends After Lebanon, Tunisia Ban “Wonder Woman”

When Lebanon revealed that it had banned the film, Israeli PM Netanyahu called for all armed forces to retreat from the West Bank immediately and end the siege on Gaza. Thousands of ultra-nationalist religious settlers then decided to donate their homes to Palestinian refugees...

ISIS Mistakenly Takes Responsibility for Decapitating Trump

ISIS Mistakenly Takes Responsibility for Decapitating Trump

In a huge faux pas, ISIS mistakenly took responsibility for decapitating President Trump and is now seeking revenge after finding out the photo of Kathy Griffin holding up a bloody Trump head wasn’t real. Unfortunately for Griffin her greatest fear is no longer that her dying career is finally over, as she has now officially been targeted by ISIS. There has been no word from Griffin, who was unconvincingly devastated by the onslaught of backlash from the President – who...
