The logo of Hizbullah, the Lebanese terror group, consists of a hand emerging from the Arabic spelling of the group’s name (“Party of God”) clutching an assault rifle, probably an AK-47.
But with the battle of Qusayr underway, said to be a decisive confrontation in the Syrian civil war and the scene of significant losses of personnel by Hizbullah, a wit who goes by Aiham VAN Syria edited the organization’s logo to fit the times.
- First, under a “Before” sign (on the right), he shows the real logo.
- Then, under an “After” sign (on the left), comes his version. It reads Mishan Allah (“God have mercy” in Syrian dialect) and shows a bandaged hand holding a crutch. (May 26, 2013)
