    I think holding up a few informative signs in the English language would be greatly helpful to those who do not speak Arabic/Urdu/Farsi. <br /><br />Majority of the people passing by in cars and getting that quick glance would probably be curious as to why there is a painting of a decapitated man on one of the signs. <br /><br />We can do a much better job of informing the general public.
