In December, the port authorities of New York and New Jersey issued a statement explaining a payment on the site of the terrorist attacks of September 11:
As part of its ongoing efforts to transform the World Trade Center site into a vibrant space in Lower Manhattan, the Port Authority has announced that it will be introducing today its famous candy sculptures made around the World Trade Campus. Center, made by the famous French artist Laurence Jenkell. Each sculpture features flags from participating countries at the G20 summit. This artistic work has been commissioned from companies and organizations such as the Chanel Foundation, the International Olympic Committee and Coca-Cola.
Is it good for you?
Not to some. Saudi Arabia is one of those 20 countries.
As a reminder, in 2003, the parents of 850 victims of the biggest terrorist attack ever committed by the United States – as well as 1500 wounded – declared that the country was responsible for supporting Al Qaeda. It provided for four specific means, and a US district judge last year rejected the despised attempt by the desert monarchy in the Middle East to dismiss the claim, finding that the plaintiffs had a "narrow basis" for their claims.
C & # 39; Saudi Arabia.
On September 11, 2001, 19 hijackers killed nearly 3,000 Americans. 15 murderers were Saudi nationals.
The statue erected in the honor of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia flaunts the country's flag, as well as this inscription:
"There is no other god than Allah, and Muhammad is the prophet."

According to The Observer, the statue is simply "a stone's throw from the 9/11 memorial".
Not everyone is happy:
It's incredibly insensitive to the families of all those who were murdered by Saudis yelling Allah Akbar as they flew into the buildings. Take it off now.

It's odious! Are not you ashamed? You are a pure evil for allowing the installation of this sculpture.

Remove this monstrosity immediately! What an insult to the victims of 9/11, their families and our country!
