Take a look at this graffiti in rebel town of Benghazi:
Now it all makes sense: Gaddafi is a tool of Zionism! And what do we learn from this one?
Apparently, they are aware of Che, Hitler (but Jews are the root of all evil, heh?), “No Fear,” pacifism signs, and perhaps Leo Tolstoy. Just like us!
Jeromy Starkey took some production pictures. This graffiti does not appear to be a work of some kids with spray cans; it’s produced by artists who work on sketches in a studio. I suspect there is some kind of institution behind it.
I never really expected the Libyan Rebels, or whatever they are supposed to be called, to be model philosemites. Even the better guys in the Middle East are wacky genocidal conspiracy theorists, and I’m not sure that the opposition are better guys. I’m glad Gaddafi is gone, and now I’m cautiously pessimistic.
