“Martin family!,” reads a sign drawn up by the rebels in the Syrian town of Kafr Anbel, part of the Syrian city of Idlib. “The Syrians are the best who know what it’s like to lose loved ones by immune criminals.”

The northwestern Syrian town, known as the “the creative center of the revolt,” has been making sardonic signs mocking Syrian President Bashar al Assad and his regime for years. Other signs have lashed out at the U.N. for failing to stop the bloodshed in Syria Syrian bloodshed as well as the foreign countries aiding Assad, such as Russia, Iran, and North Korea.

A photo of rebels holding the Trayvon Martin sign was posted on the Facebook page of activist Raed Fares, who explained why the people of Kafr Anbel are making these signs, which are directed at western audiences via social media.

I have to admit, I never suspected these chumps in Syria would comment on the case. For the first time in my life, I have no clue what to say.

It’s hard for me to blame the Syrians. They are pawns. They are being used by our government to bring instability to the Middle East. They want weapons from the U.S. and figure Obama is the key to getting those weapons.

Our CIA probably made the sign. They probably don’t read English - or cursive.

The Kzin back Trayvon for being aggressive, the Puppeteers think both were incredibly foolish to be outside at night.
