Pro & Anti Syrian Revolution Graffiti
Happy Arab news service blog reported that graffiti was seen at an anti-Assad insurance agent’s business in the United States. A day later, a pro-Assad journalist posted a photo on Facebook of pro-revolution graffiti on a Garden Grove travel agency owned by a Syrian-American who expressed support to the current regime.
Orange County’s Syrian-Americans are divided over the revolution in Syria. We’ve seen protests in front of Syria’s consulate in Newport Beach, some against the regime and others to support it. Recently, the divide in Southern California has escalated.
There is a saying in Syria goes: “الحيطان دفاتر المجانين” which means “Wall are the sheets of the insane people”; however, nowadays Syrian people turn Syria’s walls into the free expression exchange field!
I’ll leave you with some painted walls in several cities in Syria.
