Saudi Monument to Allah Erected at the World Trade Center
A nine-foot sculpture has risen on the site of the World Trade Center terror attack of 9/11 in New York. It’s a Saudi Arabian ‘candy’ monument inscribed with the words, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.”
Those are the same words used by the 9/11 terrorists who blew up the Twin Towers at that site. Most of the terrorists were Saudis and the government itself has been implicated at high levels.
Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, two were from the U.A.E., one was from Lebanon and another was from Egypt.
A Congressional Inquiry’s report refers to evidence of Saudi Arabia’s substantial involvement in the execution of the attacks at high levels of government.
The Saudi monument is one of the statues representing the 20 nations — the G20 — that artist Laurence Jenkell thought appropriate for his ‘Candy of Nations’, according to the Observer. The Port Authority of New York also thought it an apt piece to put on this location.
It celebrates Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit and was erected last week.
I lost people on 9/11 on that spot and I can’t even begin to tell you how I feel about this statue.
If ever a statue needed to be taken down, it is this one.
Oddly enough, The Port Authority chimed in and if you ask me it was in a very smartass way… maybe I’m reading too much into it? You tell me…
Users on Twitter were not as amused:
“Part of a wider art project or not, the sculpture is offensive to the victims and their families. Strange for the Port Authority to place a piece of flammable polyester in such a public area. I wonder if the NY Firefighters would rush to put it out if it somehow caught fire?”
“This is incredibly insensitive to the families of all who were murdered by Saudis screaming Allah Akbar as they flew planes into the buildings. Take it down now.”
That’s just two of many many more. I wonder how the Port Authority will respond to this one?
