This is going around today as an email titled “One of the best emails you will receive.”
It’s clearly a fake picture, cooked up by some wag in Photoshop, but it’s amusing enough to pass on.
This picture is not doctored. Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English.
So, how do a group of Syrian protest leaders create the most impact with their signs by having the standard “Death To Americans”(etc.) slogans printed in English?
Answer: They simply hire an English-speaking civilian to translate and write their statements into English. Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the “civilian” insurance company employee hired for the job was a retired US Army sergeant!
Obviously, pictures of this protest rally never made their way through the Arab TV networks, but the results were “Priceless.”
