Saudi Monument to Allah Erected at the World Trade Center – UPDATED

UPDATE: 1/14/19: The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will remove this atrocious monument, The Observer reported

“We have been in contact with the 9/11 Memorial and various stakeholders, and in full collaboration with the artist will relocate the exhibit from its current location,” a spokesperson for the organization told Observer on Monday. “We believe this solution respects the unique sensitivities of the site and preserves the artistic integrity of the exhibit.”

“The Port Authority is apparently now taking the right action this week by removing the sculpture from the plaza at Ground Zero,” reads a statement signed by 16 families affected by the World Trade Center attacks. “Its apparent plan to relocate the exhibit to JFK International Airport is questionable as well, for obvious reasons. But surely the sculpture should be nowhere near the site of this mass murder.”

So, now it’s going to the airport, a favorite launching spot for terrorists.

ORIGINAL STORY

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.

Surely hope that in this day and age, some veteran or patriot afflicted with PTSD doesn’t go postal at the display and flash back

WTF: Candy is the new opiate of the people? Ok so what do we do about it? Is anybody organizing a protest? Any mafiosi out there who’d like to have a go at this monstrosity?

Yeah it sucks to see this statue but its not what you think it was it was only there as an Art exhibit for the G-20 the united nations. All 20 nations were represented shaped like candy and wrapped in their countries flag. But its not a permanent statue.Jenkell’s exhibit at the World Trade Center campus was called “Candy Nations” and comprised 20 nine-foot-tall, 1,450-pound candy sculptures, each wrapped in the flag of one the G20 nations. As Saudi Arabia is a member of the G20 international forum, they were represented as part of the exhibit.

Even so, they couldn’t have put another “country candy” at that particular site?!
