Excursions on the Middle East, politics, the Levant, Islam in politics, civil society, and courage in the face of unbridled, otherwise unchecked power.
The translation is maybe a bit imprecise. It's not a question but a statement: "You are in Banyas, not in Israel". In red one discerns Shbaiha, name of one of the armed militias in Northern Syria.
Yes, Tom Milo's rendering is more precise whereas I was trying to capture the irony. I concede to precision and have changed the wording.
