UPDATE: YouTube has restored the video after pressure.
This video is in some ways equally as disturbing as the torture and murders carried out by FSA insurgents now being backed by our tax money in Syria because it illustrates the general day to day drudgery of a society run by thugs who have seized power.
The clip shows FSA rebels humiliating and slapping around an elderly man who became a local celebrity in Aleppo for wearing a yellow costume in an attempt to make people happy.
A different version of the video with English subtitles was posted on this channel yet almost immediately censored by YouTube under the bizarre justification that it was “designed to harass, bully or threaten,” when in fact the video was exposing the very people who harassed, bullied and threatened the elderly man.
