“Che” It Isn’t So, Muslim Rebels

Ah, yes! What would any revolution be without “Che”? And The Yemen Motorcycle Diaries … Huh? Huh? Righteousness, I tell ya!

Anti-government protesters carry a poster of revolutionary Che Guevara as they ride a motorbike during a demonstration to demand the ouster of Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in the southern city of Taiz April 12, 2011. Yemen opposition parties on Tuesday urged Gulf mediators to spell out whether Saleh would hand over power early under their proposal to end a two-month crisis over leadership and political reforms.

And nothing says “FREEDOM” and “DEMOCRACY” like full burkas … and Che, of course.

Women carry posters of the revolutionary leader Che Guevara during a demonstration to demand the ouster of Yemen’s President Ali Abdullah Saleh in the southern city of Taiz April 14, 2011. Yemen’s opposition rejected on Thursday an offer to join Gulf-mediated talks in Saudi Arabia on a transfer of power in the Arabian Peninsula state and set a two-week deadline for Saleh to step down.

Lovely must-have gifts for the revolutionary in your rebel mob.

A shop displays souvenirs featuring Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Argentine-born Cuban revolutionary leader Che Guevara (R) along with mugs of celebrities (top) in the old city of the Syrian capital Damascus on April 2, 2011.

Forget “Waldo”, kids … “Where’s Che?”

Yemeni anti-government protesters hold pictures of Argentine-born Cuban revolutionary leader Che Guevara (C-L) and late Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser (C-R) along with banners calling for the ouster of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh during a demonstration in the flashpoint city of Taez (Taiz), 255 kms south of Sanaa, on April 15, 2011.

Well, they do have one thing going for them. Yemen (and most of the Muslim/Arab world that is using Che as an icon of their ‘revolution’) already looks a lot like the post-Che Cuba does. Just newer cars.

  1. Someone should remind them that Che hated Muhammad as much as he hated Jesus.

    How does an Atheist Marxist become the face for Islamic Fundamentalism?

  2. There are fashion victims everywhere, even in places still stuck in the Middle Ages. It’s pathetic, to say the least.
