Spotted on a wall in Hamra:"Est-ce beau la?" (It's French for "Is it nice here"?)
Now, say that out loud five times fast. "es-boh-la/es-boh-la/es-bow-luh/hez-bow-lah/hizb-allah"
See what I did there?
@1mazenkhaled was quick to point out this odd coincidence that a witty artist came up with. Created by "Parole," a Belgian graffiti artist who works on the distortion of signs, phonetics and words, the play-on-words graffiti is posted three times around Hamra.
Rebellious or ingenious? You decide.
