A sign inside the restaurant. The flag at the top left makes a statement.  The three red stars under a green banner is the flag of the Syrian National Coalition that is fighting the Assad government. (The Assad government flag has TWO GREEN stars under a RED banner).

Six of us had baba ghanoush, hummus and chicken kabob for dinner tonight at the Shish Kabob Grill.  It is across from the Colorado State Capitol here in Denver.  The casual sit-down restaurant is owned by a Syrian American family. A sign by the entrance says ‘Syrian Americans for a free Syria’ and another ‘Victory is near’ (meaning victory against the Assad regime). Even if that were the case (is it?), it’s going to be a long way back with parts of the country in ruins and the economy in a shambles.
