Syrian Rebels Side with Trayvon
The Daily Beast ^ | July 15, 2013 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 07/15/2013 7:51:39 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Anger over the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin has stretched all the way from Sanford, Florida to Syria, where residents of a besieged town weighed in on the verdict Monday.

“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.

"It's very important to send our message to all the world," he said. "And English is the public language."

Other signs have compared Assad to Don Corleone from The Godfather.....

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.
However many galctic civilizations are unable to communicate their opinions because they do not have faster-than-light communication capabilities. What a shame.

This whole thing has helped me understand how Israel really feels. The issue of them being able to defend themselves against goons is historic.

The ONLY issue at play here with this case, is that a “white” person has defended himself from a goon and a good culture.

We are not allowed to defend ourselves, because they see as being so much stronger and better than they are...

and therefore, we are supposed to take what they dish out.

It is never going to stop, and Obama is just cashing in on the fact that so many people have so much hatred for their freedoms, because they can’t make it in the world, and they don’t want to work for anything.

And they are just so freaking angry at anyone who can make it.

Don’t forget that on 9/12 a large percentage of Damascus were in the street burning flags and lauding the blow to the great satan. I personally have a hard time mustering any warm and fuzzies for this bunch.

No. Klingons would say that the survivor is right. Even humans had trial by combat.

The Pak haven’t said anything-and I wouldn’t expect them to reveal any of their thoughts to Breeders.
The Thrint’s response has been all over the media. A Thrint MSNBC commenter even described Zimmerman as “Tnuctipunian”- their harshest criticism!
Nothing feom the Bandersnatchi...

It is believed the Corps Diplomatique Terrestrienne has issued a long statement that could be read to be in support of Trayvon- if any meaning can be found in it at all- but it has apparently not been received... one Jame Retief is suspected of ‘misdirecting’ it.

I think helping in the fight for “freedom” in Syria would be a great employment opportunity for hundreds of thousands of Trayvon supporters. We should start a fund to purchase them air fare.

I was trying to figure out how anyone, CIA especially, could have come up with “immunity” for that sign, given the expensive, time-consuming, demonized experience with which GZ has been grilled.

Best I can figger is, someone thinks Whitney’s law unfairly saved GZ.

Many sad!

This message empowered by the travelling roadshow of John McCain.

Having already sided with Al Qaeda (and now welcoming Pakistani Taliban into the ranks), this is small potatos.

The real question is why the West is still supporting this jihadi revolt - one which is now the #1 battleground for Al Qaeda.

With any luck, Assad will crush them just as the Russians crushed the jihad in Chechnya.
