Arabic billboard trolls Donald Trump beautifully

Donald Trump: He’s ignorant, sexist, very easily-riled, and he has small hands. He’s a troll’s dream.

So it’s no surprise the Republican candidate has been publicly mocked again – this time with this Arabic-language billboard near Detroit, which shows up his Islamophobia.

Bookies already paying out to people who bet on Hillary becoming president

The text says: ‘Donald Trump: He can’t read this, but he is afraid of it.’

The board, which is on Interstate 94 heading into Dearborn, in Michigan, was paid for by the Nuisance Committee – a campaign group set up by the people who created Cards Against Humanity.

‘I like the idea of people who do not speak Arabic having to ask their friends who do speak Arabic to translate the board for them,’ Melissa Harris, a spokesperson for the group, told WWJ Newsradio 950.

‘I personally hope this also will generate some dialogue between Arabic-speaking people and non-Arabic-speaking people in Detroit and across the country.’

A Muslim girl gets caned 23 strokes after being caught in close proximity with her boyfriend in Banda Aceh on October 17, 2016.   Out of seven couples caught spending time together outside marriage, 13 were caned while one girl was spared after it was discovered that she was pregnant. IndonesiaYoung unmarried couples publicly caned for getting “too close” to one another

Dearborn, she said, was chosen because it has one of the US’s largest Arab-American communities.

And if you go to the website trumpisscared.org, you’ll find a pretty comprehensive list of Trump’s statements about Muslims and Islam.

But this isn’t the first time Arabic writing has been used to troll Islamophobes.

For example these tote bags, designed by Rock Paper Scissors in Haifa, Israel, first emerged online in April.

The text reads: ‘The only goal of this text is to spread panic among those who fear the Arabic language.’

Brilliant.
